Merge Plugin Standalone Visual C++ 2012 issue

visual c++ 2012 windows 10 (64)

Just to confirm in case anyone else runs into these weird issues:

 

The Merged Plugins are working perfectly (what a great piece of Software!). The CMD Prompt crashes are a Windows 10 issue on my system They halt the merging process briefly, but the merge completes just fine.

I'm having an issue I can't seem to find any information about.

 

I just moved over to using Mod Organizer and decided to follow the STEP guide in modding Skyrim Legendary Edition. I'm at a point where I'm trying to merge the 'Bathing in Skyrim' related plugins.

 

When I try to Merge in Merge Plugin Standalone, the Windows command prompt pops up and the installer for Visual C++ 2012 comes up every time. After install, the merge turns from green to black and never shows up in Mod Organizer, although it is present in the MO/mods folder.

 

I have deleted and reinstalled all all versions of C++ Redistributable (2005-2015 x64/x86), but no dice.

 

Does anyone have experience with this issue?

 

Just in case, my system specs:

Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (10.0, Build 14393)

Intel® Core™ i7-4790K CPU

16Gb RAM

GTX 980

 

I'm using the latest version Merge Plugin Standalone

 

 

Thanks for any help!

In Mod Organizer, right click in the mods list, go to "All Mods" and choose "Refresh".

Thanks for your reply, the merged plugin loads after that but it doesn't contain the ESPs I wanted to merge. It only shows its own ESP (Bathing in Skyrim - Merged) under 'Available ESPs'.

 

Since I reinstalled VCRedist 2012 (as that seemed to be used by Merge Plugins) I get a message saying "Windows Command Processor has stopped working". After this the empty Merge gets built, or sometimes the Software will simply stop functioning and crash.

I'm guessing it's something that's wrong on my system, as I don't see anyone else with these issues using this Software.

That's what merging does. It takes the ESPs and puts them into a single ESP. Bathing in Skyrim - Merged.esp is the new merged "plugin"/"mod" you created by merging. You really need to read the manual/watch the video tutorial, bro.

I have no idea what VCRedist has to do with Merge Plugins. I do know that Windows 10 is a **** OS and causes people no end of pain and suffering, but that's not my concern. I've done the best I can to document fixes to problems that people have had with the software in the included documentation.

Well, I followed the GamerPoets video on Merge plugins. The merge he made, shows all of the ESPs that were merged in the 'Available ESPs' field, found under the option 'Information > Optional ESPs', so I assumed that the merge I made would also show the original ESPs in that field. In the video of course neither the bloody command prompt, nor anything to do with VCRedist pops up, probably something wrong with my Windows installation then.

Amen to that.

 

I'm following the instructions quite closely and read the included documentation, it's all very clear and well written. Still, you're probably right. It's likely an operator error.

 

Thanks for having taking the time to reply and for what looks to be an awesome piece of Software.

 

Cheers

If you disable batch copying from the settings screen the program shouldn't start any command prompts.
