Service installation failed?!

Post by memilystreet on Wed 05 Sep 2012, 18:20

Pretty sure I've followed all the directions correctly. I go to start the game, black screen appears like the game is just about to start..then a box pops up that says "service installation failed..."

So close, yet so far! Help!

Hello,

Did you install Supernatural?
Do you have any Mods or Custom Content?

I'm going to try uninstalling and reinstalling...again. hah
Pretty sure I'm following every step correctly but clearly something is not right

//EDIT

I do have some downloads from the Sims online store and thesimsresource.com if that's what you meant by custom content...

Hello,

Please remove all the Custom Content - yes, that's what I mean - first and then try again.
If it didn't work, please tell me on what game version you're on, currently?
