Hello and Happy New Year everyone.

I have been playing FONV modded for a while and then decided to install these two mods: Advanced Recon Thermal Nightvision (by Gopher) JIP Companions Command and Control (by jazzisparis). In both case the installation fail in NMM with the following error message:

I hope someone can provide some help on how to clear that out...

Thanks.

NXMM does not have write permissions for the folder it is installing mods to. Change the permissions of the folder.

That's what I  thought as well. Although, I wonder why some mods get installed without any problem and some don't. After all, they all get into the DATA folder of FONV. But what's even more bizarre is that I checked the Properties of DATA folders and found out they are all "only reading" enabled. I changed that manually to "read-write" by all users. But the weird thing there is that:

1. It didn't change anything to my problem (some mods still refuse to install with the script error above.

2. The DATA folder still is shown as "read only" after I reopen FONV folder.

This is a complete mystery to me.

More than likely it has less to do with the permissions of the folder and more to do with the permissions of NMM. I can't say for sure since I can't replicate the error but I would make sure NMM has administrator permission. I have had mods that would not install or would get errors in the NMM installers when NMM did not have admin permission.

I tried running NMM as an admin (by right clicking the NMM icon and using the drop down menu of Windows). This has had absolutely no effect. Maybe there is a better way of giving NMM permanently admin rights?
