I'm running the newest version of sierra 10.12.5, after a fresh install. I had previously upgraded from 10.12.2 and came across this problem, however after a fresh install directly to 10.12.5 the crashing still persists.
download el caption and extract the mouse.prefPane from it with Pacifist then replace it with the old prefpane, then go into the mouse.prefPane and remove the .mov file

I got a temporary fix for ya.

In "/System/Library/PreferencePanes/" replace Sierras' "Mouse.prefPane" with El Capitan "Mouse.prefPane". Then open the package contents of "Mouse.prefPane" browse to "Contents/Resources/" and delete "touchMovie.mov". Thou Sierras' version does not have a movie, just a file called "touchMoviePlaceholder.png".

At home, my "Mouse.prefPane" works on my Asus Z170 deluxe with my GTX980. No modding necessary. Just on the Gigabyte z97 with GTX660t it didn't work.
Yep worked for me! Like you, I have a Gigabyte z97 with a 600 series GPU (GT640) and needed to implement this workaround to get things going.. Thanks!

Hi,


I'm using Sierra 10.12.6.
The issue is not directly into Mouse.prefPane but into the assets that it does uses.

The video that does explain gesture is the problem (i'm using NVIDIA Web Driver), you can access back to the Magic Mouse preferences panel if you rename MagicMouse.mov into /System/Library/Assets/com_apple_MobileAsset_prefpanes_TrackpadMouseVideos/8d8c589221217f59c640073a8a348ef41934be08.asset/AssetData/ folder.

So, this command do the trick :

Code:
sudo mv /System/Library/Assets/com_apple_MobileAsset_prefpanes_TrackpadMouseVideos/8d8c589221217f59c640073a8a348ef41934be08.asset/AssetData/MagicMouse.mov /System/Library/Assets/com_apple_MobileAsset_prefpanes_TrackpadMouseVideos/8d8c589221217f59c640073a8a348ef41934be08.asset/AssetData/MagicMouse-fix.mov

So Vincent13, this one terminal command takes care of both the trackpad and Magic Mouse video problem?

This workaround works. Mouse settings no longer crash (due to the video not loading).

Again, does this apply to the trackpad prefpane also or would that take a separate command?

After upgrading my 2013 CustoMac Pro from 10.8.5 to 10.12.5/.6 and lots of scouring the forums I had decided weeks ago I needed to upgrade my wifi card to a real Mac Airport extreme (which took weeks to get all the parts from 3 different Ebay vendors in the mail) !!! Tonight I put it all together and there was no change! Ughhhh! :banghead: Vincent13's simple terminal workaround WORKED! I can finally enjoy the right click on my Magic Mouse v1, because now the prefpane won't crash and I can actually get to the settings to enable the right click!! I had tried to remove the movie file manually, but failed (not sure why either). I bet I can go back to the old BT dongle and TP-Link wifi card, that all worked flawlessly and I'd be fine. This was not a hardware issue. Thanks Vincent13 !!!
