TesShop is not a compiler, it is an editor only.  Any errors you are
seeing are a result of your TeX installation, and have nothing to do
with TeXShop.  With that in mind, did you read the subfigure README?

The subfigure package has been superseded by the subfig package.

...

The newer (subfig) package is an improvement over this package and
although this package will continue to be supported, it will no
longer
be updated.

Perhaps you should try to the newer package and see if that fixes
