DON'T!!! DO NOT DELETE VIRTUALLINSTALL FOLDER!!!!!! You will screw up your game.

 

No they don't take up space, the available free space on your hd doesn't decrease by twice the file size, it's just that this kind of file linking also tricks Windows properties panel into thinking they're the real deal.

If you deleted the VirtualInstall folder then the Windows file system automatically turned the hardlinked files into the real file and you completely messed up your NMM mod install.

 

Do not worry. NMM is not eating your HDD space. It's just an image and info about your installed mods. You are fine. :)

What the hell is going on with NMM? They announce it's end of line Dec 12 2016, and throughout January 2017 there's been a deluge of updates which leads me to think each update is so broken they have to keep releasing updates to fix their updates.

I now find myself having problems with NMM, a mod I removed (via NMM) and am trying to reinstall is asking to overwrite it's virual install. If I removed the mod, how can it overwrite itself, and why am I suddenly using virtual install garbage, I've tried to avoid this crap since I have zero interest in profiles. They said there'd be ways to opt out of this crap, but they seem hidden now? I'm getting FNIS errors all of a sudden too, again due to this virtual install folder.

And now this makes me think all the consistence errors I'm getting in Oldrim, they started happening around the time of the deluge of NMM updates, as is a few mods I updated recently have their MCM's showing $_wierd_string_$ stuff instead of proper localization so maybe that's caused by NMM too?

How do I get NMM back to being a simple mod manager without losing my sanity in the process?

I wrote about "shitiness" of the 0.63.+ versions i my latest posts.

 

if you want to revert to the older version, 0.61.23 as I did, here are the steps:

You can download named version from my OP. All Rar files are virus free and malware free.

Thanks, Elf Prince. I'll try to rollback to 0.61.23 and disable NMM updates FOREVER. Lol. Cheers.

No problem. :)

 

 I was also personally very disappointed in 0.63.+ version. After it screwed up my Skyrim, I reverted to 0.61.23 version and I'm quite satisfied.

NMM tema lost interest in NMM as they are focused on new hybrid. All fixes so far aren't bad but I have a feeling they fixed the issues just to say "We did it" and to reduce the complains of the users.

Elf Prince, about Virtual Install, and my thinking this was optional. Am I wrong, or is there a way to not use NMM's virtual system? They promised an option to not use this. I would never voluntarily enable it, so it must be force enabled by NMM itself. I don't want it, how do I get rid of it?

VirtualInstall came with 0.60.+ versions. It is very important to have it. It is good. It doesn't double take your space on HDD but makes the "image" of your installed mods. Windows reports it wrongly as used space. So, if you want to avoid VirtualInstall, you can't. Not with 0.60.+ version. You have to install any 0.5.+ version. Those versions doesn't contain VI. I think you can find 0.56 version in my OP under download section. (blue letter text).

So there was yet another 0.63.x update, I installed it cos at this point what damage can it do? And the 100's of consistence errors in Oldrim are gone, and I can now use the "Fix mod ID's and check for updates" button without NMM crashing (it was 100% crash for Oldrim, 100% works fine for SE).

I had to manually delete a mod that was supposed to be uninstalled from Skyrim SE's virtual folder to get SE's consistence errors to go away.

If NMM continues to work I'll postpone rolling back. I definitely won't update it again though!

If you continue using NMM 0.63.+ versions, you can expect unexpected.. lol... I'm joking but I'm serious too. You see, 0.63.+ version supports numerous games, so as the multi support game manager, it might crash at certain points when new additions for FO4, The witcher and some other popular games comes out. So, enjoy while it works but before you upgrade your manager, always MAKE A BACK UP of your mods.

 

I decided to stay with 0.61.+ until new manager comes out. :)

Elf Prince, I discovered what has been happening with NMM and it's wonky behaviour. Somehow (I have no idea how) another version installed in program files last December. Every time I try to update, it updates the hidden version. The link to NMM that I use on my desktop launches the version I expect to use, and if I click the download button on Nexus without NMM already launched, it launches the hidden version.

I'll see what happens when I delete the bogey version. If it fucks my Skyrim installs, I'll delete everything NMM and use something else. Mod managers shouldn't default install to program files, this is well known, and they should fucking update properly, not install a brand new version elsewhere. WTF?

If I understood correctly, you were updating NMM through the manager, right? I experienced problems few times (like many others) when doing it. So I rather download new version and ran installer.exe. It's much safer and it never freezes during the installation. It overwrites existing version and voila. :)

 

I assume that your link has some weird program in back up that starts unusual behaving. I always go the the Nexus and download the latest version. Then I check it with my Kaspersky antivirus and anti malware and anti spyware programs. When they confirm that the file is safe to install, I run th installer.

 

Before you delete your "bad version", copy your mod folder somewhere else because you don't want to lose them. it happened to me once or twice when I forgot to do it.
