Service initialization failed (0x0175dcbb) error

Post by Heiko_Tennes on Fri 30 Nov 2012, 17:05

Hey. Im new on these forums.
Well I downloaded all of the Sims3 expansions and the base and installed it. After that I applied the manual patch but its said that its already patched, but I did repair with it. After that I applied the ultimate fix into the base game but I still get this error:
Unable to start game
Service initialization failed (0x0175dcbb)" error.

Can somebody help me to get rid of this annoying error please? Sad

Hello,

It's a registry error that indicates that there could be old registry entries. Did you uninstall any part of the game prior to or during installation?

I used to play with it half year ago or one year ago and It was perfect and had no issues. But now I do have this. So I need to uninstall then delete all the registry right?
Oh and what do you mean at the ultimate fix post by re-downloading?

Hello,

I would suggest using youruninstallerpro (available here) to make sure your registry is clean. Use the "super" mode.
If you're having problems with the patch or the fix, it's a good idea to download it again to make sure you have the latest version.

and what if I deleted the games already before using youruninstaller? I checked regedit and there was only High Lane Stuff folder and Sims folder which I deleted. Now I should install the base then all the expansions that I want?

Hello,

Run a registry cleaner, and/or use this video to make sure you've found them all.

Hello,

But the base game installed all right? Try the patch from step 2 in this thread.
