TSR Pets CC Bug Fixer - Step 1

Note that you will need to update your game to at least 1.26 for PC, 1.27 for Mac (or install the Pets EP) for any new CC to work which you download after October 20th 2011.

Step 1 - Preparations

Step 1.1 - Do a manual backup

If you are unsure which folder to back up we would suggest you take no chances and backup all files and folders under /My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/. Copy this folder and all of its content to another folder on your hard-drive, USB stick or DVD etc.

Step 1.2 - Install Pets or patch the game

Before proceeding you should either have The Sims 3: Pets EP installed, or be patched to the very latest game version (1.26). Do this through the game launcher.

Step 1.3 - Download the granny2.dll

For our tool to work you need to have a specific file on your system (granny2.dll). If you have other computer games installed on your computer, you may have already this file installed. We cannot give you this file for legal reasons, so you will need to search the internet for it if you do not already have it. Please be aware that there are multiple versions of this file available. The one that RigFix needs was created in 2009. If you download an older version, you will get this error seen below.
