Freshly Installed The Sims 3 "there was an error during startup"

Post by jinxsai on Sat 24 Nov 2012, 11:32

Hi
I bought a new laptop and install The Sims 3 ,all the expansion packs and all the stuff pack. I apply manual patch and ultimate fix but I keep having the same error (there was an error during startup) . When I tried to run the Game directly from TS3W.exe i have this error "Service initialization failed (0x0175dcbb).
Other Informations
- My computer is Windows 8 Pro 64bit
- When I was applying ultimate patch using the crack from Seasons & Supernatural & Diesel Stuff & Katy Perry's Sweet Treats & Showtime & Master Suite Stuff & Pets & Town Life Stuff & Generations folder, I can run the launcher but I didn't see Katy Perry,Supernatural and Seasons installed. When I use the crack from #Crack folder , get the same error (there was an error during startup).
- And , Yes, I copied the crack files into the Base game directory.
- I recently played The Sims 3 up to Supernatural on another computer (Windows 8 Consumer Preview 32 bit) there were no problem , using the same installation files and games4theworld method.
{{ I think windows 8 is the problem. I was having a problem with Borderlands 2 but when I applied the special .dll file for windows 8 found from internet the problem is gone. }}
I hope somebody will reply me back. Smile :newfag: Help

Hello,

Start by redoing steps 2-4 on this page.
This is the very first time you installed it on this laptop? You didn't uninstall anything (at all) up to this point?

Yes, I didn't uninstall or reinstall anything.
btw, I install all the ep/sp by production order.

I apply manual patch and crack from #Crack folder. The problem is still there.

Hello,

Did you install the games on a USB device?

No, I installed on the same partition with the windows.
Should i try uninstall all games >>> restart >>> clear registry >>> install again. ?

Hello,

Normally that's what I'd suggest, but that only applies if you've had any part of The Sims 3 installed on that particular pc before.
You're welcome to try though, it certainly doesn't hurt and only takes a little time.
