The Nexus Mod Manager (NMM) is open-source software that allows users to install, download, and manage the files easily using an all-rounder interface. it's known to offer users a hassle-free modding experience without much expertise required.
Like many other games, the Nexus Mod Manager also supports modding in Schemer. even though the whole process of detected Skyrim is automatic and doesn’t need any input, users might experience the error message “Nexus mod manager isn't found out to work with Skyrim”. This error message is very troublesome but not worry; we got you covered.
Before we move on to different solutions, confirm that you simply have an active internet connection on your computer. Furthermore, you ought to be logged in as an administrator as we'll be manipulating some system files.
Solution 1: Checking Version of Mods
The very first thing which we should always confirm is that you simply are downloading the correct mods for your game. If you're trying to use mods of simple Skyrim in Skyrim Special Edition, you'll experience the error message instantly.
These two versions of Skyrim are very different in terms of features and architecture. Their mods are independent also. Usually, users don't differentiate between the 2 versions and try to install the normal mods into the other version. Navigate back to the website from where you were downloading the mods and confirm that you are using the correct version. Skyrim Special Edition will have separate mods from that of Skyrim. you'll Google this for more clear information.
Solution 2: Changing Directory of NMM
If both the above methods don’t work, we will try changing the directory of Nexus Mod Manager manually. this will force the program to reinitialize its running operations and make fresh config and user data files on your computer. Make sure you are logged in as an administrator on your computer before proceeding. If this doesn’t work out, you'll always revert the changes at any time.
. Navigate to the directory where you've got installed NMM. Press Windows + E to launch the File Explorer and navigate to the location. this can be the default directory:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Nexus Mod Manager
. After locating the folder, copy the folder to another location (move the folder). Here another location specifies the directory other than where it had been previously present.
If your NMM is present at some other location rather than the default one, move it to the directory present above.
So in essence, we are changing the location of the NMM manually.
. After you're through with the moving, right-click on the appliance and select Run as administrator. be patient and wait until the appliance is initialized. Now check if the problem is resolved.
Solution 3: Uninstalling Nexus Mod Manager
If all the above methods don’t work, it probably means that the Nexus Mod Manage has corrupt installation files and you've got to completely uninstall the appliance so as to refresh it completely. make sure that you simply create a backup of the application to some external drive so you always have a copy in case something goes wrong. Also, make sure that you are logged in as an administrator and have the web so you'll download a fresh copy.
. Select Start button type run and enter than type “appwiz.cpl” in the dialogue box, and press Enter.
. Once within the application manager, search for Nexus Mod Manager. Right-click on it and select Uninstall.
. Now, wait for the uninstall process to complete. After it's, restart your computer and navigate to Nexus Mod Manager Official Website to download the installation package.
If you can't see NMM in your application manager, navigate to the NMM directory. Locate the executable ‘uninstall.exe’. Right-click on it and select Run as administrator.
