hi, when i try to start nmm it says im missing fallout4.esm. I have verified my files.  I moved the fallout 4.esm to the steam downloading/665666  folder and now it starts how come i have to copy that file over.  Is nmm going to work correctly if i do this.  How come it asks for4 that file???. is it normal??

thanks for any help. btw i have fo4 installed on my c drive for performance, main steam folders are on a mechanical drive, didnt affect witcher 3 or and other games i use that are on this steam directory.  My witcher 3 mods work fine

When NMM scanned for Fallout 4, did it see the proper location for the game?

Are you sure you selected the correct path during the game scan?

Yes I selected it myself. I have my main steam folder on another drive and use a steam library folder on c for new speedier performance for newer games like f4 and witcher 3. C is a sammy pro. I adde fallout.esm to the downloading folder and nmm runs but doesn't install mods. I'm still doing them manually

I don't think that is the correct folder. It should be located in steamapps/common/fallout 4 .

ok, i installed nmm and it didnt find fallout 4.  I manually selected it from its main folder which for me is C:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Fallout 4.  i restarted nmm and it said i was missing a file fallout 4.esm.  It said the file should be in the C:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\downloading\377160\Data.  I copied the file over to that folder and now it starts but the game doesnt use the mods. i can download and activate mods, but they dont work in game

It means you're selecting the wrong F4 folder.
