Service initialization failed (0x0175dcbb) Sims 3 Blackbox [CLOSED]

Post by Atomicwoof on Tue 31 Jul 2012, 15:46

So I've downloaded the blackbox edition of the Sims 3 a while ago and tried to apply the Ultimate Fix. I used the manual patch to update and everything went fine, base game apparantly being recognized. Still I get this error. Also, I can open "start" the launcher, but also get an error that says: "There was an error during startup. Please see log for more information."

The blackbox edition installs all expansions at once, by the way. Is there any way to solve this? I've looked in my registry, and something that surprised me that the SKU's of all expansions are 1, but those of the base game and World Adventures are set to 2.

Thanks in advance!

Hello,

The SKU values are normal. Ugh, a modified installer.
Try this, please: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IyKMnpKHGg8

Aye, problem is that I've installed all expansions except for Diesel Stuff (but that doesn't show up in registry, logically). So there's nothing to remove. Smile

Hello,

Did you touch (Read: rename, remove, move) any of the installation folders?

Nope. It's freshly installed. Although, the folder of the blackbox version differs from the normal folder: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 Complete Edition" and in this base game and expansions.

EDIT: If it's able to help, this is what my registry looks like:

Hello,

I think I found the problem. In the future please DO NOT use any modified installers, as they will most likely cause nasty problems like this.
Please contact me via the Forum's chatbox. I'll try to fix the problem for you.
