Since the FreeTime patch was causing more harm than good, Maxis had to remove it from their page.  Don’t worry, it will be fixed and re-released shortly…probably by the end of the week!  Here is MaxoidDrea’s note:

Hi everyone,
We’ve temporarily removed the FreeTime patch. Too many of you were seeing installation errors when trying to install the patch. Rather than have more Simmers come across this problem, we’ve removed the patch until we can fix these issues. I hope to have an update for you shortly.

Thanks for your patience.
