Hi Everyone

 

I've been trying for weeks to play Inquisition with Frosty mods for the first time, but I can't get the Frosty mod manager to launch the game. At all. I've tried YouTube videos of using Frosty and followed them to the letter. I've uninstalled and reinstalled Frosty, uninstalled and reinstalled Inquisition. I've tried loading with only one mod, then no mods, every time it comes up with this bloody message about "missing symbolic links" when when I click OK it all shuts down. I've installed Inquisition on a different drive as someone suggested it didn't work well on C drive. I've run Frosty as the administrator. Nothing helps.

 

I've only used DAI mod manager previously but it's gone a bit wobbly and won't load certain mods so I wanted to try out Frosty. I've googled this problem to exhaustion, other people have had this problem but I haven't been able to find a damn solution. I think someone said it was to do with Frosty not even recognising the game. I've gone to forums and on the Discord thingie for Frosty (which I cannot figure out how to use) and other people have got this error, but I can't see anything about how to fix it. 

 

If anyone could help or at least explain what the 'symbolic link' thing means I'd be really grateful! I'm using the most up to date version of Frosty (1.0.5.9). I just want to be able to try Frosty mods (sighs) Please can someone help!!!

Are you running the latest Windows 10? If you run Frosty Mod Manager without administrator privilege, will a UAC window pop up after "Applying Mods" progress bar gets full, requiring you to run command prompt administrator?

 

Try create a symbolic link on your own: run CMD as Administrator, run something like

mklink /d D:\Users222 C:\Users

will a new link in D: drive be created whose content is always exactly like in C:\Users? Or did you fail?
