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.
