Reinstalling Mod Organizer w/o losing mods, load order, etc.

Question

I was wondering if there is a way to do a fresh install of mod organizer without losing all my progress within the program (eg. mods, load order, profiles, etc.). I have been having issues with certain features that I think will be fixed with a reinstall but don't want to lose all my mods.

 

>>A side note:

 

If there is no way to do this the main problem I am having is with the reproccer patcher for Skyrim Redone. I have used it before without issue but after a windows reinstall I am getting java error reports everytime I try to run it within mod organizer. When I run the jar outside of MO it runs fine. I have attached the error report for reference.

 

    >>A screencap of what I mean: here

Alright you reinstall instructions worked so thank you for that but I still cannot get SUM/Reproccer to run correctly. ::(:

 

Edit: I found out this is a problem with the latest version of MO 1.3.6. I reverted to 1.2.18 and the programs work fine again.

There is still a need to grab the UPDATE file from Nexus. Even though you have 1.3.6 installed there are 'updated' files in the 1.3.5 -- 1.3.6 Update file that will solve this Java issue.

 

The specific file that is needed is the 'hook.dll'. The version of this file in the FULL 1.3.6 files is 2.7.4. The version in the UPDATE file is 2.7.5 and this is needed.

 

Better version numbering would aleviate this situation and I have left a comment in the Bug Genie stating as much. Version numbers don't cost anything so there is no need to avoid using 1.3.6.1 if this a minor incremental update.

You should be able to just copy the profiles, mods, and overwrite folders to the new install which should save everything, you should make a backup and install to another location to be sure.

THANKS! This was not very clear on the mod organizer nexus page. After grabbing the update files and installing them over the old ones the programs are fixed again.

It shouldn't be necessary to download the update! I downloaded the full archives from Nexus yesterday and all of them contain the hook.dll in version 2.7.5.

 

Everyone who didn't download 1.3.6 in the first 2 hours or so shouldn't be affected.

 

Regarding version numbers: I can't increase the version number when the main application doesn't change! As you notice, ModOrganizer.exe and hook.dll have separete version numbers (1.3.6 vs. 2.7.5). I can't version them together because then I'd have to increase the version number on both, even if one of the files didn't actually change.

Well if that is the case (I have no reason to doubt you) then there is a horrendous delay in Nexus' updating of ALL their CDN servers.

As mentioned elsewhere, I downloaded the 1.3.6 version a good 6-8 hours after the first posting in Nexus of that issue. I tried again earlier today and the same files are being offered as the 1.3.6 version. That 'hook.dll' version 2.7.4 was still in the archive as of just a few hours ago.

 

I understand your reasoning on version numbers, I just don't think it is a helpful stance. However it's not a position I want to take a stand on, I'm not providing any code fixes so my stance is not worth anything!  ::):

      HI peoples;
      As much a ted-talk as qanda, but the concept of Merging updates or other files into a main file has come up in my current re-installation of SSE and modding of it:
      that being when the STEP says to merge files when you did not download them from the Nexus, but like me, have system stored mods from various games that you are simply re-installing in many ways back into a MO2 Profile for what ever game...
      and the option to Merge, Replace, Rename, or Cancel does not appear...
      which is because the meta-data does not exist within the Download folder you (should) have set up in your MO2 installation and instance of said game...
      Well, the best choice is to simply name the update/optional file exactly as the one it is meant to merge with - which means that when you know your going to be installing various files for the same mod, you need to choose what it is going to be called as a whole - and these options will appear again and this part of the STEP can be achieved easily and as the STEP instructs.
      I realise some of you may already know this, but this conversation was begun on another mod forum here on STEP and needed to be continued here instead, so this is for those that may come across the same issue or confusion momentarily.

      Hi guys I'm new here so hopefully this is the right place to post this.
       
      When I try launching Skyrim SE through Mod Organizer 2 I get the error "REL/Relocation.h(567): failed to open file"
       
      Before this error I was getting the error "REL/Relocation.h(548): failed to open file" but I uninstalled and reinstalled the engine fixes and SKSE libraries. After doing that and relaunching I get the error I mentioned above. Do you guys know what I could have done wrong? I'm really new to messing with mods so it's probably something I did wrong... I've made sure all plugins are enabled and all mods are installed with their masters except for the ones below because I can't find the appropriate mod that goes with it so maybe that could also be the issue. I'm pretty sure I have "Blues Skyrim" but the creator renamed it so that's why MO2 is detecting it as missing. Idk if that's the case with the other ones though.
       
      Missing masters:

      Master                                                                               Required By
       
      Blues Skyrim.esp                                                              Eli_Breezehome [PATCH - DOS (Director's Cut) SE VER1.4] (STD).esp
       
      Skyrim Better Roads - All In One - Merged.esp                Settlements Expanded SE - Skyrim Better Roads Patch.esp, Skyrim Better Roads - All In - One - Merged - PATCHED.esp
       
      Soljund's Sinkhole.esp                                                      Settlements Expanded SE - Soljunds Sinkhole Patch.esp
       
      Tes Arena - Skyrim Frontier Fortress.esp                         Settlements Expanded SE - Legendary Cities Patch - AIO.esp
       
      Whistling Mine.esp                                                           Settlements Expanded SE - Whistling Mine Patch.esp
       
       
       
      also another problem is when I run LOOT it gives me the error 
       
      Loot failed to run
      Errors:
      Cyclic interaction detected: ELE_SSE.esp --[Master]-> SoS_ELE_Patch.esp --[Group]-> Luminosity Lighting Overhaul.esp --[Master]-> SoS_Luminocity_Patch.esp --[Group]-> ELE_SSE.esp
       
       
       
      If anyone knows what I could do to fix this, that would be amazing. Thank you
