I can second this. I've deleted my whole folder and only put your mod, Same thing happens.
As stated on the mod page: "The Sims 4 Direct Controls is built on the patch v1.52.100 (June 2019) and doesn't work in previous versions of the game."
Game version 22.214.171.1240 is unsupported. The mod will not work on this version. Update your game via Origin.
