@torimbutler  Please run the Origin reset tool for macs:


If it is the download that's finalizing, and not the install process, you'll need to download the game again.  If it gets stuck on finalizing again, you may be able to circumvent Origin altogether, depending on whether Origin is correct about the download still being in progress.  (Let me know if this happens again.)


Edit:  @torimbutler  I've moved your thread to the dedicated Sims/mac section.  Please let us know if you still need help with this issue.


I don't work for EA. I'm just trying to help fellow players with their games.
