CAW crashing and/or black box over controls

I'm having problems when I click Edit in Game. So far it either crashes right away ("Sims 3 has stopped working" etc.) or it'll load and this is what my screen looks like:


If I try to use any of the buttons, THEN it crashes.

Anybody have any experience with this?

    What I did was get rid of all CC when working in CAW. If you have CC I would suggest trying that ?

    I had the exact same problem. I removed CC and still had it.

    However, I reinstalled CAW after removing CC and it's working fine, now. Don't know if CC was contributing or not

    Maybe caused by the store content. It's confirmed that too many store contents installed will crash the CAW. However, I don't know the maximum quantity of store contents that CAW can tolerate.
    Try to remove the store contents of CAS and anything you won't use in CAW. Good luck.
