I recently decided to swap over from NMM because that no longer works (every time i start it up it just sits there checking for updates forever and never makes any progress, i tried wiping and reinstalling it twice). i download fine, the install seems to work... but then it begins to open and freezes.

 

There's just a black box with a partially filled orange bar. the left says "Loading extensions" the right says "Mod content". I left it at that overnight to see if it was just going slowly from first time startup... but no. it just sat there like a lemon. there appears to be utterly nothing similar on a google search, and TBH i was fine with NMM's simple install-run loot-occasionally clean files setup... I do have Malwarebytes, but it's the non-premium so it does nothing unless i tell it to. other than that there's just windows defender, and if your program is being flagged by and stopped by that, that's really a problem with the software itself.

 

I just want to be able to play my Skyrim again.

You don't provide a lot of information.

Did you uninstall all the mods you installed using NMM? Did you uninstall NMM?

Does Skyrim run with no mods? Or do you mean Skyrim SE?

Did you validate Skyrim through Steam or re-install it?

Windows 10 current on Microsoft updates?

Before we even talk about Vortex not installing, we need to know what shape your system is in.

And of course a current version of NMM is available on Github if that is your preference..

There is a log file in c:\users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\Vortex\vortex.log, please send that my way.

 

This is obviously not usual, the screen you're seeing is where Vortex is loading its extensions (Vortex is built to be extensible and a lot of the functionality is written as separate modules), it shouldn't take more than a second or so, otherwise something failed and failed in such a way that Vortex was not able to handle it (i.e. report an error or something) but also didn't crash entirely.

Well, it seems this won't let me attach a .log file through the standard attach files function, but here's the last lines from "all extensions initialized" not sure if it's the part you want, but i assume the error would be at the end.

though after 5 attempts of uninstalling and reinstalling NMM, that seems to have fixed itself. so i'll likely keep using that.

apparently you're getting network timeouts for connections to our api, this is very possibly a temporary issue that simply resolves itself at some point.

 

Network problems shouldn't be stopping Vortex from starting up properly though, I'll look into whether that could actually be the problem.

 

It's likely that this was in fact the same problem you had with NMM.
