I am running KOTOR 2 through Steam on a brand new Windows 10 Laptop. I have tried different versions of both TSL and M4-78 (Steam's versions and through NexusMods) each time with a fresh install of Steam. When attempting to install Mods that use the TSLPatcher.exe, it allows me to get to where I can tell it to install, but never gives me the option to tell it where the Game Folder is located like it is supposed to. Because my C: drive is a small SSD I install all my games and other programs to the D: drive (don't know if this is an issue, but doesn't seem like it would be). 

 

I am attaching a picture that shows what the installer does when I try to install any mods...

This one doesn't show any Game Folder, but after it sits a while it eventually pops up with "Game Folder: User Selected."

 

Mods that I have tried to install using this are few, but they are as follows:

M4-78EP_1.2.4

M4-78 from NexusMods

Handmaiden4females184

Handmaiden and Female Exile - Disciple and Male Exile Romances

 

What I want to know:

1) Is there something my computer might be doing to prevent me from being given the option to choose a destination folder?

2) If so, how can I fix it?

3) If I can't fix it, is there a way to get into the coding to name the destination drive and folder?

4) Anything else you might know that I wouldn't know to ask about...?

Are you trying to use a TSLPatcher exe that you downloaded to install random mods? That's not how it works. It's not a mod manager or something like that.

M4-78 should only be available as its own exe installer. Mods that use TSLPatcher will come with their own copy of it that is set up specifically to install that particular mod.

No, I am using the .exe installer provided with each mod. The common denominator just seems to be the patcher itself trying to run on my computer.  Fair question, though.

I would imagine that either a second window would pop up requesting me to direct it to the destination folder or it would have an option for a "browse" button like most other windows programs when installing.

‚ÄčOkay, I figured out how to get it to work... I had previously tried running as admin, but like every other time it appeared to just freeze saying "installations started (date and time)."

However, I wondered if the pop-up to select the installations folder was appearing behind it so after running as admin, I moved it before telling it to install this time and wualla, there it was appearing behind the installer instead of in front of it. 

 

ugh...
