"Failed to write settings"??


So I've used MO for a long time and never had this issue before.  I just did a clean Skyrim/MO install on a new SSD...a different drive than my OS.  I can open and use MO fine, but when I use Creation Kit or Loot I get the following message box either before it opens, or after when I try to log out of MO...


"MO Failed to write settings

An error occured trying to write back MO settings: File is write protected"


I can't see any pattern to this popping up before the program or on exit, and I can't tell what this is affecting or what it means??


Here are my files...

F:\Games\MOd Organizer\ModOrganizer.exe

F:\Games\Skyrim Tools\LOOT\LOOT.exe




I have set properties/security/permissions to full control for all of these folders.



What am I missing?

Thanks for the fast response!  


OK...think i got it.  I had to right click on my f:\Games folder, properties, then at the bottom had to uncheck the Read Only box.  Never had to do that before...hope it doesn't screw anything up?!

The file for the settings is read-only. You need to change that. I'm guessing it's some type of INI, so look at those first.

      Hi all,
      I'm having some problems getting my ENB set up right.  I was having significant grass/fence/tree/castle aliasing problems, so I set up antialiasing and transparency supersampling through my GPU (1080GTX).  
      Edit:  I'm using RealVision ENB on Skyrim Classic, if that helps.
      I noticed today that I have these red lines appear around the edge of my screen, it seems to have something to do with skylighting.  The red line will get occluded by torch smoke, and will disappear if I turn away from the sky.  However, so long as I'm facing the "bright" part of the sky, I can look down and the red line still shows up over buildings, etc.  I've tried enabling and disabling all the various in-game options to no avail.  Anyone seen this before?

      So I'm currently following Kelmych's and Micheal of GamerPoets' guide to mod FO3 to the to hell and back but when ever I try installing certain FOMODS it gives me a "NexusClientCLI" error message.
      -Provided In Picture- The irritating part of this issue is that it only seams to be certain mods i.e. currently FWE. Mart's Mutant Mod works just fine.
      I've had this problem somewhat recently in the past too with New Vegas and getting mods like Project Nevada to work, I was able to get a work around by installing it manually but this time around that's not gonna cut it. Someone PLEASE respond quickly, this issue is driving me insane!
      Oh and I know it's saying "Is being used by another process" but it isn't.

      I've happily been using Creation Kit through MO2 the last few days with no issues. This afternoon it refuses to load in MO2 - crashes with the dreaded "Creation Kit has stopped working".
      However, it works outside MO2.
      I'm running Win 10, everything on an SSD away from Program Files.
      I tried reinstalling Creation Kit, reinstalling MO2, running a file verification on the system, checking Registry with CCLeaner, usual restarts etc.  No luck.
      The Windows Error Log gives me this:
      Faulting application name: CreationKit.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x58486f09
      Faulting module name: ucrtbase.dll, version: 10.0.14393.0, time stamp: 0x578997b5

      Any help much appreciated! Thank you!
