There seem to be a couple of things going on surrounding CBBE and Body Slide.
First, to make sure I have Vortex folder set up correctly, my mod folder settings are as such:
I installed Body Slide and Outfit Studio and set up the Tool in the Skyrim Dashboard in Vortex. But when I started Body Slide, nothing was in the dropdowns:
Vortex put the Caliente Tools folder in C:\Steam\steamapps\common\Skyrim Special Edition\Data\CalienteTools\BodySlide. I believe that's correct. Perhaps that's another issue - or somehow related to what's going on below:
Thinking perhaps it needed CBBE to be installed to populate those dropdowns I then tried installing CBBE, but got this when I selected to Enable the mod (after going through the FOMOD options):
Here are the error details:
I tried running Vortex in Administrator Mode (I have administrator rights for my user account), but got promptly yelled at when I tried to start Vortex so I changed that back.
I get the same error when installing CBBE either via Install From File or downloading it from Nexus via Vortex.
Am I missing something here? I've installed a few other mods without issue (just getting started on a new install on a computer that's never had Steam/SSE/Vortex on it before).
