Profile Error MO

Question

Hey guys, brand new here at the forums and new to STEP! 

 

About 8 hours ago I embarked on the beginning of STEP after having played Skyrim successfully for months through individual mods and just generally playing around in modding. This is the most aggressive modding I have done to date. So on to the problem at hand, just spent the better part of the day utilizing MO and the guide posted. After everything was done and I was getting ready to use BOSS through MO, the program froze and closed. Upon attempting to reopen I was greeted with this: "failed to find "C:/Program Files (x86)/Mod Organizer/profiles/STEP Core/modlist.txt"". So now MO refuses to open at all and I cannot access anything I have done in the past few hours. 

 

If anyone has a solution to this, I would be MUCH obliged as this was a very new venture for me that might be slightly over my head.

Did you check C:/Program Files (x86)/Mod Organizer/profiles/STEP Core/ folder to see if the required file is in there? What you can do is make a backup of Profiles folder and reinstall MO, then merge old Profiles with the newly installed one. But check for the required file manually first.

First, your installation is in C:/Program Files (x86)....., which will make troubles regarding UAC and the like. MO should be installed in your Skyrim directory and that one in Steam and Steam shouldn't be in C:/Program Files at all. There are guides on steam-forums how to move a steam installation to either a different drive or out of the program files directories. (I do assume you have Skyrim purchased over Steam)

 

Make sure the .exe's are all running with Admin Rights (click on the exe - or shortcut on your desktop - and go to properties ---> Compatibility ---> tick 'Run this program as an administrator'). Disable Antivirus/Antimaleware real time guards as you go playing/installing mods, too - eventually during installation progress disable the UAC as well (re-enable both after done).

 

And yes, as rootsrat mentioned, check if in your MO folder --> profiles ---> *YourProfileName* if the modlist.txt is existent. If it is, most likely it's one of the above problems.

You guys are great, thank you so much <3

 

I have now deleted and uninstalled everything involved with STEP so far and restarted. Now, Boss, Wyre Bash, and MO are installed in my Games/Skyrim folder so no where near the program files. Should I also move the steam folder? Will this cause problems when I am activating these mods even though my Skyrim will be run through MO utilizing SKSE?
