Hi everyone, I am having a problem using the add tool with the game Skyrim Special Edition. So here is the problem, I am trying to launch Harbor (for those who don't know what that is, it's the launcher that uses skyrim together mod. It allows for you to join others in their skyrim game) from Vortex. I added the pathway to the harbor.exe to launch. It looks likes this C:\Program Files (x86)\Tilted Phoques\Harbor\Harbor.exe
Now with that being said the pathway still won't launch the harbor.exe. I know it works, as I got all the mods, SKSE, and Harbor to work on vortex to launch on my husband's windows 10 desktop computer. However, no matter what I do it just will not work on my windows 10 laptop. I can get Harbor to work. I can get the mods to work. Obviously Skyrim Special Edition has no problem in steam. However, I can't get vortex to launch the harbor.exe.
Trouble shooting I have done:
I made sure that the pathway was exactly where the exe was.
I uninstalled and reinstalled all the mods including SKSE.
Uninstalled everything and deleted everything associated with harbor, skyrim special edition, and vortex than reinstalled.
After the path was made for harbor again I clicked and tried the run in shell checked and run detached option. (This one is what worked for my husband when both were checked to run)
Didn't work so unclicked both options and tried again.
Didn't work so tried just one and then just the other.
I have changed the v8_context_snapshot.bin to old which some people said to do.
Then tried the deleted v8_context_snapshot.bin option on which I have also seen on the internet.
I have even gone as far as copying everything associated with vortex, harbor, and Skyrim Special Edition in the folders programx86, documents pc - my games - SSE, programs, and %appdata% from my husband's computer and put it on my computer. Everything transferred over exactly as it went as far as to auto sign me into his account on vortex. So everything SSE, Harbor, Vortex was exactly duplicated.
It didn't work so I made sure my firewall wasn't the issue for harbor not opening through vortex. I even went as far as disabling the firewall completely.
As of now, when I click the harbor play button that I added to vortex with the add tool, nothing pops up. When I click the same button with the exact pathway (different computer, but we saved the vortex, harbor, and Skyrim Special Edition in the exact same file places as each other) for the harbor tab on my husbands computer, works like intended. Does anyone have any ideas on how to make vortex launch the harbor.exe from my computer?
