Can't Use Wrye Bash from MO2

Question

I use to be able to use Wrye bash with mod organizer a couple months ago. But I recently started messing around with mods again and updated MO2. But since I updated it i can't launch wrye bash. Whenever i do i get the error "the action cannot be complete because the folder or file is open in another program" But wrye bash isn't open in anything else. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling MO2 and Wrye bash. I've tried moving the install location for both. But i still keep getting the error. I've been trying to get it working for a couple weeks now and now I kinda need it because i've almost hit the esp limit for skyrimSE. I would use merge plugins but i've had nothing but an endless amount of problems with that and wrye bash is just so much easier. Anyone know how to fix this issue?

You are a Windows 10 User. You are using a Windows Update that is prior to the 1809 version. You need to force update your Windows installation to 1809 or greater, which can be done using the Windows Update Assistant. If you google that, you should be able to find the links you need... I don't have them handy at work. ;)

Well that worked. Thanks. I don't really get why i had to go through a 2 hour process to update windows to fix something that worked fine before in previous versions of MO2.

It's not MO2 that is the problem - it was Wrye Bash and how it works with MO2. The short version is that WB updated in a way that needed the newer Windows version, and likely didn't realize at the time what had happened. That Windows update (and, from what now understand, all to follow) are no longer forced updates unless the system determines it is required somewhere in the background. Hence, not everyone got the 1809 update. The 2 hour install of Windows... well, that's on MS and their file sizes, I guess.

      1. I've been using MO 2 for years for 3 of my games, Skyrim, Skyrim SE and FA4.  No problems and yesterday  I know I did something wrong because the top line of items is missing and Skyrim SE is the only game I can access.  But I don't know what I did or how to fix it.  I've  uninstalled and reinstalled with no change.   Hoping someone has done this and can explain how to fix it.

      Hey all.
      Sorry if this has been asked but I couldn't find anything.
      I got a Steam Deck recently and was in the process of setting Skyrim SE up with mods.
      Right now it actually works, however I can't seem to figure out how to launch Skyrim SE Launcher? I need to change settings so it runs better.
      When I open Skyrim from Steam, or use bottles to run Skyrim SE Launcher, it launches MO2. From there I have to select SKSE and hit run and it launches.
      If I click the drop down and select Skyrim Special Edition Launcher, it says an instance of mod organizer is already running.
      Any ideas on how I can get around this to launch the launcher so I can change my settings?
      It seems there is _SkrimLauncher.exe file that must of been automatically created by MO2, however when I run that with Bottles, and make changes, it doesn't seem to have the changes when I run SKSE.
      Thanks for any help!

      I have always used Wrye with MO but now on a fresh install of everything(Skyrim SE) when I try to rebuild the Bashed Patch I get an error saying "file not found, it may have been moved, edited or deleted. I have no idea what that means since it doesn't even tell me what file is supposedly missing. Any ideas as to whats going on here?
