I have done all of these steps, but I can't start the game... Whenever I start the launcher, my PC will tell me it doesn't work. And if I try opening the game directly via the file "TS3W.exe" it says "The game cannot be started Installation service failed (0x0175dcbb).



Mod edit: moved to the right section.

Hello and welcome to the Forum @kiokmoizushima,

Did you install the base game of The Sims 3 AND at least one expansion/stuffpack? If yes, please have a look at the procedure that is described here:
http://games4theworld.forumotion.com/t6052-there-was-an-error-during-startup-please-see-the-log-for-more-details-fix

(it involves deleting some registry entries as well).

Then try the game again. Another possible solution - after you did the above - is that you also re-apply the 1.67 manual patch and then the "Ultimate Fix" as well.

Good luck for now, and do keep us posted!
