Service Initialization Failed

Post by mega-k on Tue 30 Oct 2012, 05:31

So I had the base game on my laptop for over a year and my cousins wanted to play pets and supernatural so I downloaded them. After downloading, I installed pets but uninstalled it because it installed in Japanese due to my locale so I uninstalled and re-installed it. After installing both supernatural and pets, I downloaded and applied the fix then updated via the patch and then replaced the .exe and .dll from the # crack folder. When I tried to play the game, it gives the Service Initialization Failed (0x024e424f) error. Would I have to re-install everything or did I just do something wrong?

Searched the site for your error (0x024e424f)
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/search?mode=searchbox&search_keywords=0x024e424f&show_results=topics

Looking at some of the Solved Topics, most are related to incorrect game version/ultimate fix, so you did the 1.39 manual patch and 1.39 ultimate fix right?

I did both the manual patch and the 1.39 fix but it gives the (0x024e424f) error. If I try launching via the TS3.exe it gives me this unofficial game modification error thing and when I click continue, it just gives the (0x024e424f) error while launching via the TS3W.exe only gives the (0x024e424f) error.

Hello,

If you have the correct crack, you have an outdated mod. Backup and remove the mods folder from Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 and see if the error still comes up.

I already removed all the mods and even the whole Sims 3 folder from My Documents. I tried cleaning the registry too.
Edit: I think I have the razor version of the base game, if that means anything.

Hello,

Please wait for the Ultimate Fix to support version 1.42 of The Sims 3 and after that RE-DO these instructions: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

RE-DOWNLOAD the Ultimate Fix AND the manual patch.

Thanks for all the help guys, I just got it to work. I just uninstalled everything and cleaned the registry. I'll be waiting for Seasons and 1.42 then, hopefully I'll get it to work then too.
