Work flow for Core and Extended?

Question

I successfully used the previous Step extended setup many months ago. I now wish to do the new Step core in one profile and the extended in a 2nd profile. I am a little confused. When I follow the guide and get to an extended mod do I just copy the core mod to another profile named Extended and add the extended mod there? Of course you can tell ima newb at this. Any advice or links appreciated.

Is there a specific reason you want a profile for STEP Core and another profile for STEP Extended? It is feasible, but doing so might be a bit confusing to a new user because some mods (notably STEP Compilation, Bashed Patch, Dual Sheath Redux output, FNIS output, and DynDoLOD output, and any mods that have different installation steps for Core/Extended) must be completely separate mods in both profiles and you can't mix them. This means you'll end up with a STEP Core Compilation mod in the STEP Core profile containing the STEP Core patches and a STEP Extended Compilation mod in the STEP Extended profile containing the STEP Extended patches. Where it gets confusing is that Mod Organizer shows both STEP Core Compilation and STEP Extended Compilation in both profiles so you have to ensure STEP Core Compilation is active in STEP Core and inactive in STEP Extended and STEP Extended Compilation is inactive in STEP Core and active in STEP Extended.

Thanks for the speedy reply! Since I posted, I reread the Step MO guide.....and decided a full Exended Step is the way to go....as the points you mentioned above became clear.  Again Thanks!    Out of curiosity, Could a 2nd MO install in a differant directory be used for a Step Core install and a Primary MO install be used for the Extended- solving the points mentioned below?

I always use the portable version of Mod Organizer (instead of the installer) so I can extract the ZIP file in any folder for a second or third or fourth instance of Mod Organizer. I currently have three instances of Mod Organizer for Skyrim (STEP Extended, STEP Extended test, and my playthrough with a few mods on top of STEP Extended) and another instance for Fallout New Vegas.

      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'?
