How do I register bsa files from mods to the Morrowind.ini file.  I know where the ini file is located, but I just do not know how to connect the 2.  Can someone please tell me?  Thanks!

There're BSA Registration utilities out there which can do it for you, otherwise open up the .ini and make it look like this, for e.g.

Archive 0=Tribunal.bsa
Archive 1=Bloodmoon.bsa
Archive 2=My New BSA.bsa

Just make sure Archive x is incremented for each .bsa

Thanks, but I've tried a reg program, that didn't work, the game kept crashing.  I tried what you told me which SHOULD work, same thing!  The ini will not allow me to save, anyway!  How do I counteract that!  It gives me this: oL3OIyP.jpg

Don't install Morrowind in Program Files / Program Files (x86).

UAC and folder virtualisation, added with Windows Vista, screw up games not designed for it, like Morrowind.

Ok, I guess I will have to uninstall/reinstall.  I used the Open Morrowind thing on this computer.  I have a Win10 btw.
