- Bypass Launcher to test if directly starting the game give same error (Game Help:TS3 Bypassing the Launcherwiki)
- Rename user folders to rule out corrupted ones (step#3 in Game Problem FAQ)
- Try to repair registry (use tool like CCleaner - link in Uninstall FAQ)
Last resort: uninstall and reinstall, as most svc init issues means something wrong with the system not recognizing game files or corrupted game files.
You may however want to test uninstalling the last pack you had installed, before going the whole hog to base game. Sometimes, if you're lucky enough, only the last pack needs to be uninstalled/reinstalled.
