Hello guys,

Here's my issue. I installed Nexus Mod Manager, went through the initial setup of game directories and all that, then launched it. I get the splash/loading screen, and it loads fine, but then nothing shows up. After waiting for around a minute, I'll get an error saying nexusclient.exe has encountered an error and needs to close. There is no error message other than that, so I don't have anything that can point us in the direction of the problem :(

If it makes a difference:
*I am running a 64-Bit Windows 7 Ultimate.
*My install location is C:\Program Files\Nexus Mod Manager
*I have not installed any mods through the NMM (since I can't get it to work), but I have installed New Vegas mods through the Fallout Mod Manager, if that conflicts somehow.
*I am trying to mod Fallout 3 with this, but this happens whenever I try to launch NMM for any game.

Can anyone help? Please and thank you.

Try running the NMM as an administrator.

Thanks, but nothing seemed to change, unfortunately. The program crashed about 10 seconds after the splash screen finished loading.

    I had a title once, but I forgot what it was.

I also use Win7 x64. No problems there.
However, the 'program files' location will run into possible problems with Windows overzealous UAC protection. Try uninstalling it and putting it outside of the program files location - I use C:\games\Nexus Mod Manager.

ALL of my games are in C:\Games - including the steam client.

Here are some links that may help

Hello,

Thank you for the advice. I moved the installation of Steam from C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam to C:\Games\Steam.
I have also uninstalled and reinstalled the Nexus Mod Manager to C:\Games\Nexus Mod Manager as you have suggested.

Unfortunately I only have one hard drive (yes, I know, a crime for gaming nowadays), so Steam, all my games, and the mod manager are installed on my C:\ drive, if that makes a difference.

That said, I've launched the mod manager, and now I don't get an error message (which is good), but the window does not show up. If I check my processes, I can see that NexusClient.exe is running, but the window is not appearing. I'm not quite sure how to tackle this issue :\

Does anyone have any more solutions? I've been wanting to use the Nexus Mod Manager, but I still cannot find a fix.

That was already suggested, and yet, the attempt yielded no results. Thank you anyway.

It is nice to know that the problem isn't only related to me, then.
