I got this message after an update..found the answer for everyone..it's caused by a conflict with a mod...or (item) in mod folder..find and download Mod Conflict detector by Dmitrymalfatto..install  run scan...remove items in dark blue..one at a time..restart sims 4..usually its only one or two items causing the problem

It still did not work for me. I went to the website and did everything he/she asked but it still will not work. I am beginning to feel scared because I do not want any damage done to my game. Please Help!!!!!

How can you figure out what it is that's causing it!? when you have over 3000 CC mods? this problem didn't start until I downloaded CC today and I THOUGHT I deleted it but it still gives the same message I'm starting to get pissed because I can't lose my CC FrownShocked

It's cc most of the time so mods ARE probably safe (but given we had a patch, you need to check on those anyways).

 

Remove the cc you've added last first, in groups, until it starts again.

 

Could be that a cc got borked with the update too and it's something you had for a while.

I have the exact same problem and I use custom content. I know it's probably one of those but the thing is that before I downloaded some items I had opened the game just fine but now it won't open so I deleted all the recent custom content files but it still won't work. The thing is I am suspecting that one of the files was included with another date and that is why I cannot find it. What should I do?
