The Sims 3 Unable to start game service initialization failed 0x0175dcbb.[SOLVED]

Post by linkinparkkiro on Tue 26 Jun 2012, 18:15

Hi there ! So i have a big problem with the sims 3 ! I installed the game using this method http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly and read it very carefully but always get the same error at the end "The Sims 3 Unable to start game service initialization failed 0x0175dcbb".The games that i want to install are showtime,pets and late night. So i tried the first method installed first base game then showtime then pets and then late night (didn't apply ANY cracks) updated the game to the newest version 1.34 AND applyed the ultimate fix reading every step very carefully. And in the end got the error again ! I tryed the alternative way too, but again THE SAME ERROR ! Can you please tell me what am i doing wrong ?

PS:I actually tryed installing base game then late night then pets and last showtime, but the error keeps popping up !

//EDIT

Oh sorry i need to add that i applyed for the first method only the
#crack folder from the fix not all of the folders only the crack one
like the admin sayed !

Hello,

That looks good. Are you sure you re-downloaded the latest version of the Ultimate Fix?
Also, try backing up the "The Sims 3" folder in Documents\Electronic Arts\ and then removing it from your Documents completely.

Yes i have the latest version of the ultimate fix witch is last updated in 6th of june if im not mistaking, but ill will try your method with the documents folder ! Actually the only expansion i want is pets but couldn't install it because of the error and then i thought that i need more expansions, but i guess that the problem isn't there ...

Ok so i re-installed the game this time installing only base game and pets using your 1 method,re-downloaded the fix,updated the game to 1.34, copyed the 2 files from #crack folder from the fix into the base game/game/bin,tryed to run the game didn't launch because of the error and then i copyed the sims 3 folder from my documents\electronic arts on the desktop and then deleted it from the documents, but it didn't work sorry :/

Hello,

Did you restart between uninstalling and reinstalling? It's crucial that you do, and results in this error when you don't.

No i didn't, but now i tryed restarting and then re-installing again but didn't work !
I actually tried manually uninstalling the base game and sims 3 pets so i can be sure that there isn't a file that is stuck in the registry but that didn't work too Sad ! I know that your torrents and fixes work but i still don't know what am i doing wrong seriously ...

Hello,

Did you check the registry for entries? This video might be helpful.
