mklink i am stuck

Question

HI  my problem is MO and FO4. WIN10 .

I managed to install the MO .

I took the option to install  MO on a different drive. I went to H:

 

so my path is   :

 

c:\user\gamer\appdata\local\modorganizer     ( this is the deafault  what MO is installing)

 

during installation i used the option to install on my H: ssd.

 

h:\risen\steamapps\common\fallout 4\modorganizer2

 

i made a copy of the modorganizer default folder on drive c: I copied the fallout4 folder into the newly created Modorganizer2 folder on drive H:

 

 so what must the mklink /J   look like?    Iam stuck  because i got messages like wrong path or syntax error.

pls can someone provide the exact  typing?

 

Next: i can use the overwritefolder but only on drive C:  If i create a mod from there it appears in Modorganizer and it is usable.

 

Do i need the mklink  /J ,or can i leave it as is and just create mods rom the appdata folder?

 

 

Next: In the new created Modorganizer2 folder on my H:\ drive  are the same folders as in the Modorganizer2 \Fallout4  and in here is the profile folder with the default profile. I created a new profile and this shows up in the root of my modorganizer2 folder.

 

So went ahead and deleted the folders in Modorganizer2 root folder except the fallout4 folder.  This caused Modorganizer not being able to launch on some exception error.

 

So are the duplicates in Modorganizer root folder required ?

 

 

looking for your help....

I don't think you can just copy FO4 to a new folder like this because Steam wants it in the directory it installed it into and there are several registry entries that point to the original FO4 install directory. In other words, FO4 won't work if you just copy it somewhere like this. I don't understand why you're copying the Mod Organizer folder either.

Are you trying to follow this guide?

 

@Gernash uses symlinks in his guide but the official stance on MO2 is to NOT use them.

 

All you need do is install MO2 anywhere, on any drive and modify the paths to various folders via the 'Settings' dialogue. As @Greg mentions MO2 uses the registry settings for supported games to "see" where they are installed and you should never manually move any game without ensuring these settings are also changed.

Hi i have not copied the FO4 folder (installation folder ) i have copied the folder MO creates in your local appsdata folder. 

I copied the modorganizer folder because my c: drive is almost full.

 But anyways i solved the problem. I can live with MO creating  overwrites in the overwritesfolder in appsdata\local\modorganizer. I can create the mods here and MO has it in the left pane. 

 

Actually i was using MO 1 since a couple of years on Skyrim and had never problems with it.  The confusion was created by reading this forum here  lots of posters claim MO has problems and the provided solutions .  I guess i would have been better off not listening and keep on going as i did before.

 

Of course MO has some bugs but all in all there is no difference compred to MO1.

HI yes i read about the symlink here. Because i had a problem with MO not reading the overwrites folder in m H:\Modorganizer2 folder. I thought the symlink will fix that.

I finally did what u supposed here  and changed the settings in MO settings dialgue. But still overwritesfolder and profiles wont be detected  on drive H:\Modorganizer2

 

MO2 still reads the appdata\local \modorganizer       folders.. I can live with that......

      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'?
