can't update MO2

Question

Hello,

I wanted to update MO2 but now I can't update the software and play Skyrim.

I launched the setup with admin so I don't understand why is he asking for permissions.1358832444_bugmo2.thumb.PNG.00095806c5603a076c8f8f02affa0b62.PNG

Check your/admin permissions on that file. Can you manually delete it? Any message when you try?

Then retry update.

Error Code 5 Access Denied can also be returned if another process (such as antivirus or whatever) has the file open.

Verify that Mod Organizer is not running when you get to that stage of the update process. If it is, close it and click the "Try Again" button. If Mod Organizer is not running, you might use File Explorer to rename the file to something like "usvfs_x64.dll.old" and then click the button that means "Try Again" to see if that works.

Hello,

I tried to delete the file but it says that he is open in "skyrimse.exe".

I checked if there was this process in the task manager but no.

I have no anti-virus and MO2 is not running.

Thank you for the answers!

Reboot and try again. It sounds as if some process has this file locked. If for some odd reason this doesn't work, rename it to something like "usfvs_x86.dll.old" (adding a .old extension at the end) and try updating. Usually Windows allows renaming the file even if another process has it open. If you are able to successfully update, reboot again and then delete the "usvfs_x86.dll.old" file. Do not delete "usvfs_x86.dll" or Mod Organizer won't work correctly.

      Starting a topic to collaborate on updating the MO wiki guide to current MO2 relevance. The guide has been updated to address many of the most important changes from MO to MO2, but it still needs a comprehensive audit/revision as well as a title change to make it clear that it is the "Mod Organizer 2" manual/guide.
      I know that MO(1) is still available for whatever reason, but unless there is a really good reason to do so, I'd prefer not to maintain doc on what I believe is no longer relevant (set me straight if I am mistaken). Thus the drive to revise the current doc.
      Ultimately, this is a call to contributors familiar with the intended use and direction of MO2. At the very least, we will need 'expert' content reviewers. I'm hoping that the MO2 devs or maintenance staff have some interest here, as this maintenance should serve them well as a resource to which users can be directed from the app itself and from Discord/Reddit/wherever in order the RTFM.
      There is also this forum, where MO supporters are encouraged to post (and MO devs and enthusiasts are also encouraged to use as a resource).
      Anyway, we still have the primary MO-manual creator, @DoubleYou --and those of us here at Step that know MO well-- but having developer support and that of others will help us to keep it relevant and remove any persisting redundancy.

      Hi, like the heading says those two stores suddenly started getting locked all the time at level 37.
      I saw one possible fix here: https://steamcommunity.com/app/72850/discussions/0/630802978962715283/
      But it involves disabling Run for your lives and When vampires attack. Does not seem like a very good solution.
      Is there any other way to fix this?

      I'm assuming this is the thread for 1.0.0 as well. If not, my apologies for the wrong placement!
       
      18 - Lighting and Weather
      Storm Lightning for SSE - FOMOD is outdated. The old version I think had a bunch of typos and wrong headers for some pages. New version seems to have fixed it. All options are the same, so this is low priority, but I thought I would mention it regardless.
