Failed to write settings (errorcode 161)

Question

Every time that I quit Skyrim, MO2 (2.0.8.3b) stop to works and I get this error:

 

"An Error occured trying to update MO settings to G:/Steam/...../ModOrganizer/ModOrganizer.ini: Invalid Path (errorcode 161)"

 

Quit MO2, and restart the application solve the problem until the next time when I run SkyrimSE and I quit it.

Can you please post the full pathname. Errorcode 161, and the message itself, refer to an invalid pathname.

You might also try and check to see that the path you are expecting to see actually is correct.

Full path is G:\Steam\steamapps\common\Skyrim Special Edition Tools\ModOrganizer\

 

There is also another pop-up message

Substantially it say that:

Impossibile to copy file. Unexpected error. 

Insufficient system resources to complete the requested service

Have you ever been able to run MO2 from that address?

I'd suggest moving it out of the Steam path and into a folder of its own, e.g. G:\Tools\MO2\ or even G:\MO2\

 

Also if you are currently on Win10 you may have the issue the Creator update introduced and therefore you will have to wait for the Windows update that fixes it. There is one in the pipelines at the moment.

Ok I'll move it on a different drive too. and in a Root folder.

In the meantime I've got a different error too (lol)

Fail-fast exception.

A fail fast exception handlers will not be evoked and the process will be terminated immediately.

hmm... I think there may be underlying issues here with your system. Never seen a 'fast-exit exception' error with regard to MO/MO2 before so I can't give you any specifics on why that occurred.

 

Has MO2 ever worked on your machine?

Yep, and still working fine, but I can run Skyrim just one time, once I quit the game MO2 start issuing, and I need to quit it.
I'll do another test, by moving it on a different drive. Maybe it's the SSD, or maybe I should try to install MO2 from scratch.

I think what you are describing might be a known issue with Mod Organizer 2. It seems Mod Organizer 2 is in a bad state after exiting the game so the workaround is to restart Mod Organizer 2 after exiting the game. I seem to remember LePresidente posted some information about this and asked if any C++ developers could help fix this issue.

      Hello there, I've been trying to find a way to color the text for separators. The text color is either black and white, but sometimes it's black on a separator that shares the same color of others that have white text. I would really like to be able to control the color of both the separator bar and it's text.

      Hi everyone,

      I have a portable installation of MO2 on a different drive than the OS, same drive where Skyrim is installed, and since I updated to Windows 11 I can't start Skyrim through MO2 either with or without all mods, SKSE. If I start it from outside of MO2 in any way, it works fine (with SKSE too). What could be the issue?

      Hey everybody, i ran into an issue that i was hoping someone would help me with.
      last night when i was installing my mods from STEP 2.0.0 Guide, my PC accidentally turned off and on again, after it turned back on and i went to open MO2 i found all my mods rearranged alphabetically into the last separator, and all of them were unticked. as seen in the screenshots.
      Is there a way to revert this and not go through the menace of rearranging all of the 310 mods into their separators? 
      Thanks.
