Mod Organizer 1, No game identified. Unable to manually select exe either

Question

I'm having some troubles with Mod Organizer not detecting Fallout 3. I installed the game on my SSD and it doesn't detect the game and the game/launcher files aren't visible when manually searching for them. I've tried finding a fix here on the forums but couldn't find a fix. It's a fresh install on my SSD, the Mod organizer is also installed on said SSD. It's just odd that the files aren't showing up when I search for them through MO but I have no trouble finding them when I just search through the file explorer

Try starting FO3 using it's launcher to establish the registry entries. Then reboot and check again. Also, be sure to install MO according to some best practices.

I have already started it and rebooted multiple times. The file explorer can see the game files just fine but MO just doesn't. https://imgur.com/a/UWYXBBW

The prompt wants you to select the Fallout 3 folder, not any particular file. That image on the right, do what you did and click Select Folder button. You are not supposed to see files in that window.

When I click just the folder I get the same error. I've tried moving the game between different drives, reinstalling the game and MO as well

For that matter toss MO1 and install MO2. MO1 is no longer supported by any developer nor us.

      In the attached image, the CC mods that are disabled there are not loading properly. I placed them into MO2 as opposed to having them in my Skyrim installation, but MO2 just can't manage them I guess. The mods aren't loaded into the game, and when I quit the game, the mods become disabled again. Is this an issue with MO2 or my installation of those mods?

      I keep getting an error saying "Cannot start ModOrganizer.exe" after trying to launch anything through MO2, like SKSE. I don't have an antivirus, even Windows Defender is completely disabled. What do?

      I had a great list going for SSE I would even go as far as to say my magnum opus. I started building off of an SMEFT profile everything was going great until I ran matorsmash one time and now any executable from any instance of MO2 crashes the program. I've been trying to find similar threads, but the few that I have found end with the helper asking for a log and never getting a response from OP. So here's the log straight away: https://pastebin.com/zYNCdk8N
