The Sims 4 Last Exception Error: 50/50 Method
As explained above, the error usually occurs during new expansion launches. The custom content and mods sometimes conflict with new official updates, resulting in the 'last exception' error message. To get rid of the message you'll have to pinpoint which mod is outdated and needs to be removed from your mods folder.
One common way to do so is the 50/50 method. This is an arduous but necessary task which involves deleting half of your mods (remember to back them up first). Then launch the game to see if the error persists.
If it does, you know that the mods you removed are unlikely to be causing the issue. Once again, half the remaining mods in your folder and repeat the process until you narrow in on the problem mod.
