Hi there,

I'm not an admin but I was having the same problem as you. I went through all the steps they recommended then my newest expansion (Sims 3 Pets) would go to a blue screen and then crash, giving me the same error. I just tried something that I think might help you.

You know how they say to add the manual patch for 1.37 to Sims 3 and then also to apply the Ultimate Fix? It actually works for macs too.

First, you want to use this manual patch for Mac users. It is downloaded in a .zip file. Mine didn't show up at first as that so be patient. You can find the patch

Then, you'll want to take the two files from the Ultimate Fix (I can get more specific names if you need it) and apply them to your Sims 3 Base game files. Let me know if you need me to be more specific. The ultimate fix can be found here:

I hope that this helps you like it did me and that you finally get to enjoy your game. Let me know if you need any more specific details/help. Though, I'm sure someone more qualified will also respond to you Smile
