Unable to start game: Service initalization failed (0x0175dcbb)

Post by Catcatia on Thu 10 Jan 2013, 08:33

Hi,

Sims3 including expansion packs was working until we tried to install Seasons yesterday. Things went from bad to worse and in the end I uninstalled the base game and all the expansions using Your uninstaller- super as suggested here on the site.

I re-installed the base game, and expansion packs Generations and Seasons this morning,

Applied the update and the Ultimate fix, want to start the game and get Service initalization failed (0x0175dcbb)

Check the dates on the TS3W.exe and dll file, they have both the modification date of 1 November 2012 and they are both installed in C\Program Files\electronic arts\the sims 3\game\bin

Used your Registry Helper tool, Sims3, Generations and Season all look sok, but when I press fix I get the following error message: There was an error setting registry values: Value cannot be null. Parameter name: value

Any ideas, hope you can help

Hello,

Please mention this error in reply to the topic for the registry helper, so the person who developed it can have a look at it.

Hi, sorry I am new here and I am not sure where you would like me to mention the error. Can you point me in the right direction?
