Sims 3 exchange content wont install [unable to start game Service initialization failed (0x02957b48)

Post by pastaway on Sun 30 Dec 2012, 06:31

I have all expansions besides ambitions and High-End Loft Stuff and I've applied the ultimate fix and my game runs fine, but I tried installing a dog from the exchange on sims3 website and it gives this error when i try to install it in the launcher:
Unable to start game
Service initialization failed (0x02957b48)

What Do? Help

Hello,

To be honest, that sounds like one messed up puppy.
Is your game still working?

Hello,

Do you have any idea if it installed fully or partially? I think your next step should be to try a clean The Sims 3 folder. Go to Documents\Electronic Arts, and backup and remove the The Sims 3 folder (or rename it) and see if your game will start.

I did just that messing around with it to see what the problem could be and that didn't do the trick either. :c
