Can't Download CC Content - Notepad

★★★★ Newbie

I am not able to download CC content, all cc content opens in notepad and when added to my mods folder, my Sims 4 game doesn't open. I have tried to delete notepad, save the mod opened in notepad as 'All Files' not a Text File and the error message still occurs. Any advice would be appreciated.

That you have chosen to associate them with Notepad does not in any way prevent them from working in the game.

What error message are you talking about? A lot of CC % Mods needs to be updated after the recent patch.

@jpkarlsen The error message says 'Cannot start because the below file appears to be corrupted. If this file is a mod please remove it and try again. If not please repair or reinstall the game via origin. I have tried repairing the game and that doesn't seem to work.

So apparently this is one of the Mods/CC that needs to be updated. You need to remove it (and delete localthumbcache.package) until it is updated.
