Error message received:
The Sims 3 Unable to start game Service initialization failed (0x0175dcbb)
I go to my games on Origin and click play on The Sims 3. I have no expansions downloaded onto my computer yet, and am just trying to run the base for now. When I press play, it gives me the registration code and tells me the game will open in an outside launcher. Then, I get the blue screen with the plumbob and then the said error message appears.
I've uninstalled and reinstalled Origin, and I tried deleting the contents from my The Sims 3 folder, but there are only two things there that continuously reappear when I try to launch the game, always receiving the error message. Please help!
