Failed to Refresh List of .esps

Question

Hey guys, I've got a problem.

 

So I recently got a virus that erased all my Skyrim mods (yes, I was livid). Luckily, I had just recently made the full reversion to vanilla Skyrim so I could use MO instead of NMM, so I hadn't lost that much. Now I have Norton Security, the virus is gone, and I want to get back to modding Skyrim.

 

Here's where the problem starts. I've downloaded and successfully installed several basic mods to get started (USLEEP, RaceMenu, SkyUI, etc.). So I go to the plugins tab on the right side and check all the boxes, then go to the left side and check all the boxes for the mods, and suddenly an error pops up:

 

Failed to refresh list of esps: failed to find " ... /Steam/steamapps/common/Skyrim/Mod Organizer/profiles/Default/plugins.txt"

 

All plugins on the right side become unchecked.

 

Now this is the really strange part. If I close MO and go to said folder, the plugins.txt file is there, but if I keep that folder open while I try activating all the mods and plugins again (checking the boxes), I get the same error and simultaneously I see the plugins.txt file vanish from its folder! I had been using MO for about a week and a half before the virus happened and I never had this error, so my assumption was that my new Norton AV software was interfering with MO. However, I have now set MO and LOOT as Norton trusted applications, and set my entire Skyrim directory as an excluded folder for Norton's Auto-Protect, SONAR, and Download Intelligence, and I'm still getting the error.

 

I'm on Windows 10, using MO v1.3.11. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I apologize for such a long explanation.

Completely disable Norton AntiVirus and repeat the test again. Norton unfortunately is more trouble than it's worth so I would go with one of the more friendly packages like Windows Defender that's bundled with Windows 10.

I'm hoping for a way to fix the problem without completely disabling Norton, if possible. Only using Windows Defender is what got me the virus in the first place.

      Hi guys I'm new here so hopefully this is the right place to post this.
       
      When I try launching Skyrim SE through Mod Organizer 2 I get the error "REL/Relocation.h(567): failed to open file"
       
      Before this error I was getting the error "REL/Relocation.h(548): failed to open file" but I uninstalled and reinstalled the engine fixes and SKSE libraries. After doing that and relaunching I get the error I mentioned above. Do you guys know what I could have done wrong? I'm really new to messing with mods so it's probably something I did wrong... I've made sure all plugins are enabled and all mods are installed with their masters except for the ones below because I can't find the appropriate mod that goes with it so maybe that could also be the issue. I'm pretty sure I have "Blues Skyrim" but the creator renamed it so that's why MO2 is detecting it as missing. Idk if that's the case with the other ones though.
       
      Missing masters:

      Master                                                                               Required By
       
      Blues Skyrim.esp                                                              Eli_Breezehome [PATCH - DOS (Director's Cut) SE VER1.4] (STD).esp
       
      Skyrim Better Roads - All In One - Merged.esp                Settlements Expanded SE - Skyrim Better Roads Patch.esp, Skyrim Better Roads - All In - One - Merged - PATCHED.esp
       
      Soljund's Sinkhole.esp                                                      Settlements Expanded SE - Soljunds Sinkhole Patch.esp
       
      Tes Arena - Skyrim Frontier Fortress.esp                         Settlements Expanded SE - Legendary Cities Patch - AIO.esp
       
      Whistling Mine.esp                                                           Settlements Expanded SE - Whistling Mine Patch.esp
       
       
       
      also another problem is when I run LOOT it gives me the error 
       
      Loot failed to run
      Errors:
      Cyclic interaction detected: ELE_SSE.esp --[Master]-> SoS_ELE_Patch.esp --[Group]-> Luminosity Lighting Overhaul.esp --[Master]-> SoS_Luminocity_Patch.esp --[Group]-> ELE_SSE.esp
       
       
       
      If anyone knows what I could do to fix this, that would be amazing. Thank you

      Hi there peoples,

      First time posting, so if this isn't allowed please just let me know. Looking for a bit of support, as been scratching my head for ages now and getting nowhere.

      I have used MO2 + xEdit in the past and never had any issues with it. However, decided to mod Fallout NV again. When trying to run FNVEdit through MO2, it doesn't seem to complete the action as LOOT tells me after cleaning that it still needs cleaned. I have made sure the installation directory for MO2 isn't in the Fallout folder. It's all on my C drive (SSD). Tried running as admin ect. Clearing read only. Just can't seem to get it working.

      Any advice or help is appreciated.

      Thanks

      Since the release of Anniversary Edition, I renamed my Skyrim SE installation folder from 'Skyrim Special Edition' to 'Skyrim Special Edition Classic' before updating the game on Steam.  So now I have both folders in Steam\steamapps\common.
      I have setup MO2 to have two different instances of Skyrim SE (one being Anniversary Edition and the other being just before Anniversary Edition).  I'm using the same Base Folder (F:/Tools/MO2Base/Skyrim) for both instances so I don't have duplicate mods using up disk space.  However, I did create unique subfolders for 'Profiles' and 'Overwrite' (e.g. %BASE_DIR%/AE/profiles and %BASE_DIR%/SE/profiles).
      So, now I have FNIS installed and when I run it through the 'Skyrim Special Edition' instance, it runs as expected.  When I switch to the 'Skyrim Special Edition Classic' instance, FNIS gives me the following warning...
      FNIS Behavior V7.6   11/14/2021 2:35:15 PM
      Generator: F:\Games\Steam\steamapps\common\Skyrim Special Edition Classic\data\tools\GenerateFNIS_for_Users\GenerateFNISforUsers.exe
      Skyrim SE 64bit: ??.??.?? - F:\Games\Steam\steamapps\common\Skyrim Special Edition\ (Steam)
      >>Warning: Expected generator path: F:\Games\Steam\steamapps\common\Skyrim Special Edition\data\tools\GenerateFNIS_for_Users not found<<
      I'm also getting similar pathing error when trying to run DynDOLOD through MO2...
      Error: Can not find DynDOLOD Resources SE core files to create improved LOD.
      Current Data path F:\Games\Steam\steamapps\common\Skyrim Special Edition\Data\
      Is there a way to run these utilities through MO2 with Skyrim SE being in a folder other than 'Skyrim Special Edition'?
