Installation Error

Question

Hello.  I'm new to STEP.  I'm trying to install Step but when I do I quickly get an error that says "Error opening file for writing  C:Program Files (x86)Mod OrganizerModOrganizer.exe

Click Abort , Retry to try again, or Ignore to skip this file.  Retry produces the same results.  I am running WIn 8.1, have installed the 32 bit version of Python, and have 7zip installed if that matters.

On another note I used a MO guide referenced through the Nexus page https://wiki.step-project.com/Guide:Mod_Organizer.  This page told me I needed to run Python and provided this link https://www.python.org/download/releases/2.7.6/.  This page has 4 versions for Windows available.

Windows x86 MSI Installer (2.7.6) (sig)

Windows x86 MSI program database (.7.6) (sig)

Windows x86-64 Installer (2.7.6) [1] (sig)

Windows x86-64 program database (2.7.6) [1] sig

I'm assuming that the bottom 2 are the 64 bit versions of Python.  What is the difference between the top to programs and which one should I use.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm using the installer version.  Should I uninstall Python?

Please ignore this topic.  All I needed to do was enable run as admin and it installed fine.   Sorry for the bother.

Which version of MO are you using? The installer or the standalone version? I believe the installer includes all the Python that you'll need to run the MO Configurator plugin.

The correct Python is the first one. It is unnecessary if you use the Python included in the installer. It shouldn't be a problem either. The error you describe is more often associated with a permissions issue. Try running Mod Organizer as administrator.
