Vortex had been working fine for me for months. Suddenly, Vortex is no longer able to connect to Nexus. When I start up Vortex, it spews a series of notifications associated with not being able to log on to Nexus: "Failed to fetch available extensions", "Failed to log in: Network connection closed unexpectedly", "Failed to update masterlist", "Checking for update failed".
When I click the login button to enter the API key from Nexus, there's a big orange rectangle saying "Network connection closed unexpectedly". An error notification immediately pops up as I click the login button. I paste the API key into the space provided, click "Save", and it doesn't log in.
The error notification is "Failed to get access key". Clicking on "More" shows "Network connection closed unexpectedly" and "code: ECONNRESET". Clicking on Show details shows:
"Error: read ECONNRESET
I try again, and the process repeats, exactly like before, as many times as I try.
I have no problem accessing the nexusmods.com website.
I have explicitly added vortex in to my firewall exceptions, even though that hadn't been necessary before. I have rebooted my machine. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Vortex. None of these have worked.
I am running Vortex version 1.1.14. I am using it to manage about 50 Skyrim Special Edition mods on a Windows 10.0.18363 x64 machine with 12GB RAM. I have a wired ethernet connection to a cable modem router which appears to be working fine for all other network activity. I have a free Nexus account.
Please let me know what I can do, this is very frustrating.
