"Unable to start game - Service Initialization failed" HELP!

Post by Sbit4191 on Sun 19 Aug 2012, 05:13

I bought the Sims 3 on disc
downloaded Ambitions
then downloaded Pets
then downloaded Diesel Stuff in that exact order
I just recently wanted Town Life stuff so I downloaded that, followed the instructions and placed the crack in it's designated spot
once I finished all that, I started up the Launcher and noticed Diesel Stuff symbol was not highlighted anymore and the game will not start because the "Service Initialization failed" so how do I properly upload Town Stuff to the Sims so I could play it?!

Hello,

If it doesn't, I'd be very interested to find out about the numeric code you're getting with that service initialization error. Different codes stand for different problems.
