Woke up and MO corrupted

Question

Ive used MO faultlessly for some long time without any problems. Last night I was using MO with skyrim and as I went to bed I exited skyrim and place my computer in sleep mode. This morning after logging on MO failed to open generating this error:

 

ModOrganizer.exe Bad image

 

C:/program files (x86)\mod organizer\dlls\QtCore.dll is either not designed to run on windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator of the software vendor for support. Error status 0xc0000020

 

I then redownloaded mo and extracted it to a desktop folder.

 

After running it and confirming sky rims path, the app began, but without my previous profiles.

 

Apart for not knowing why MO failed/corrupted in the first place, how can I get my profiles working in the new installation of MO?

You want to copy your mods and profiles (downloads too if you care about them) folders from your previous MO installation into the new one (hoping you didn't delete your previous installation yet?), though I don't think the desktop is a good location for that.  Pretty sure those are the only folders necessary, but not certain...

Thanks  baronaatista, I'm just doing that now - so far 88% of 67 gib of mods copied!

 

When I ran Skyrim without any of my mods, it was amazing how dull it all looked, and speed wise is was significantly faster. I also need to reinstate fnis within MO :-(

 

I'll let you know how it all turns out!

Some hours later... my profiles lost a lot of their settings, so I had to re-tick a large number of mods. All's working again.

 

Thanks again.

 

Lesson : Don't leave W10 in sleep mode!

is it bad form to post in a topic several months old like this when you get the same problem?  seems silly to start another topic, so...

 

had the same problem today.  turned on my pc and tried to load MO, got the same error.  went to the file in question and saw it had no data for some reason, so i just downloaded the archive version of MO and replaced the corrupted file with the .dll from the archive.  works fine now, though i do wonder what caused the issue.

Not sure how your DLL would get corrupted like that, you should scan your machine for malicious software to be safe.  Generally speaking, if a file is getting corrupted like that it means you have something funky afoot.  There's the unlikely situation where atmospheric noise flipped a bit on your hard drive platter, but that's not the kind of thing that happens repeatedly.  DLLs don't get rewritten by any normal system processes, but are common vectors of attack by malicious software (which can binary-patch inject themselves into the DLL so their code executes when the DLL is loaded).  In this case it sounds like some malicious software is trying to binary patch into the DLL but was built for a different version of the DLL.
