Cannot Start LOOT.exe from MO



I have been having a few problems with MO lately so recently I decided to reinstall it. MO now works fine but when I try to run LOOT from MO I get the error message:
"Cannot Start LOOT.exe
This error typically happens because an anti-virus has deleted critical files from MO's installation folder or has made them generally inaccessible..."
I do not have an anti-virus program installed
The details of this message are:
Error 87 ERROR_INVALID_PARAMETER: The parameter is incorrect. (0x57)
. binary: 'C:\Program Files (x86)\LOOT\LOOT.exe'
. owner: BUILTIN\Administrators
. rights: (normal rights)
. arguments: '--game="Skyrim Special Edition"'
. cwd: 'C:\Program Files (x86)\LOOT'
. stdout: no, stderr: no, hooked: yes
. MO elevated: no
. usvfs x86:not found x64:ok proxy_x86:not found proxy_x64:not found
Can anyone help out??

Are you using Windows 7 or Windows 10?

You've installed LOOT into C:\Program Files (x86) so LOOT likely does not have sufficient rights to do what it needs to do. Do not install the game, Mod Organizer, or any modding tools into a UAC-protected folder like C:\Program Files or C:\Program Files (x86). See the System Setup guide here for tips on how to install and configure Mod Organizer and all the tools into a folder you create.

Also note that you should not be running Mod Organizer or any game/application from Mod Organizer as an administrator.
