Cant run LOOT through MO2

Question

Every time I try to launch loot through MO2 it gives me this message:


Cannot start programs


this error typically happens because an antivirus is preventing Mod organizer from starting programs. add and exclusion for mod organizer's installation folder in your antivirus and try again.


Error 5 ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED: Access is denied. (0x5)


. binary: 'C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs'


. owner: (file not found)


. rights: (file not found)


. arguments: '--game="Skyrim"'


. cwd: 'C:\Start Menu\Programs'


. stdout: no, stderr: no, hooked: yes


. MO elevated: no


. usvfs x86:ok x64:ok proxy_x86:ok proxy_x64:ok


thing is, I don't have an antivirus. And I even tried disabling windows defender entirely. But too no avail. Anyone have any ideas?

A little more information would be helpful, like:

Where is Mod Organizer installed.

Where is LOOT installed.

 

Mod Organizer and any tool run from it must be installed in away from the Windows controlled UAC folder. This means not in the Program Files directories.

 

Mod organizer should not be installed in the game folder, but in its own folder.

I have all of my modding stuff in a modding folder on my desktop.

The Error 5 ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED: Access is denied suggests a permission problem. I would make another folder for MO on the C drive and install MO there and set up LOOT to see if it runs, If it runs you can point MO to the other install to get the profiles, mods and load order back.

      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?
