service initialization failed 0x039e8474 error. [SOLVED]

Post by jewellz on Thu 06 Sep 2012, 20:25

Okay, so I have the original TS3 disc, but I have all the other eps and sp's(except Sweet Treats, which I have digital copy of) downloaded. Everything is installed, including Supernatural which I download from G4TW. Once I installed SN, I had to go ahead and update to 1.38. Afterwards I tried to play and it woould not load so I applied the Ultimate fix following all the steps. Once it got to step 11, I skiped it since the game was already updated to 1.38 and went straight to step 12. After that I tried loading the game(both from the launcher and from the bypassing) and each time I get a black screen then a service error messege.

Can anyone help me with this please? Should I uninstall the base game and go through the process again?

Hello,

Please re-do these instructions: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly
DO NOT skip any steps and read very carefully!

If that didn't work, can you tell me: did you get your base game via Origin, Steam of really the actual DVD?

I got my base game via the actual disk. I got the katy perry via Orgin and all the other eps & sp's via torrents



EDIT:::: Tried it again and followed all the instructions without skipping any step and I still get the same messege.

Thanks Admin for all you do and the help. After uninstalling and re-installing everything I finally got it to work. Also, I found that I was actually using my orgin digital copy of the base game so when I re-installed I used my actual base game disc. Started up the game last night and it worked fine. I havent restored my mods or cc but I will eventually. Thanks for the help again!
