Weirdly, The Frontier is able to install through Vortex as of now. I'm not sure why it can be installed and couldn't be earlier, but I guess that solves this specific topif though! Thanks for your response Picky, I'll mark this as solved!

Hi all,

 

I seem to have trouble installing The Frontier for Fallout: New Vegas and as far as I can work out, it is related to Vortex. I'm running Vortex v.1.3.22.

 

The specific error is as follows:

Fallout-The Frontier failed to install. archive is broken: ERROR: (my desired directory)

 

Can't open the file as an archive. The process doesn't have access to the file because it is being used by another process.

 

I do have some other mods installed, but they are mostly armour and weapon mods and I reckon those mods being installed don't influence the download process of The Frontier.

 

Here is a link to the error pop up on Vortex: https://prnt.sc/xd5yta

 

I'm very grateful for any help, so thanks in advance!

It sounds like your download of the mod file is corrupted. Can you open the file itself by looking for it in your downloads folder?

Did you follow the Frontier installation instructions - exactly?

Only mods they specify as requirements, and in the order listed. 4 GB fix is required.

If you did all that - your PC may not be able to run it. It is a huge (technical term) mod and requires a recent GPU.

Vortex is out of the picture after it completes the install, so you are better off asking for specific help on the Frontier support forum.
