Sims 3 And expansions installation help.[SOLVED]

Post by SarahKZE on Fri 22 Jun 2012, 09:34

Hi, I recently downloaded the sims 3, world adventures, ambitions and late night. I installed world adventures by updating the base game to v1.8.25.003002, then updating world adventures to 2.3.33.003002 and applying the crack, and this worked. However now I would like to add other expansion packs like ambitions and late night. I have tried installing ambitions and late night in addition to world adventures using every way I have found on the internet and none of them have worked for me. When i try to open the TS3EP02.exe or TS3EP03.exe file after cracking it the problem is always 'Unable to run game, service initialization failed (0x0175dcbb)'. I have downloaded the ultimate fix but as I dont have expansion packs starting from generations that wouldn't work either. Can someone please give me a functional step by step installation guide for these expansion packs i have for me to be able to install the game successfully and play all expansion packs at the same time? Thanks a bunch!

Hello,

That's a registry error. Uninstall Ambitions and Late night if you haven't done so already, restart your pc, run a registry cleaner and use this video to find out if there are any left-over registry entries for those 2 expansion packs, and delete those entries.
Now try installing them again. Take care not to allow your game to be updated to the latest version, because your crack will be useless if you do and you'd need the fix and one of the expansions it requires.

I just uninstalled everything, including world adventures and the base game, and I'm going to try installing all the expansion packs again now. Should I update the base game and each expansion pack after installing them or is this not required?

Hello,

No you don't have to, you can use the manual patch right after you install the base game but, you'll need the fix and the fix requires at least one of the following expansions: Showtime, Master Suite Stuff, Pets, Town Life Stuff or Generations.

Don't forget to restart before you start installing again.
