Hi there,


now I have problems to download mods with MO1 and MO2, which I cannot fix. Under Win10 with newest version and all updates I have moved to mod organizer 2 (for modded Skyrim (oldrim)), and also followed gamerpoets video demo for install.  I can download Mods from NEXUS using download with manager into MO2, but won't let me install them. Then I get this error:


                      none of the available installer plugins were able to handle that archive

                      this is likely due to a corrupted or incompatible download or unrecognized archive format


I also shows a warning in the MO2 console - WARNING: we're trying to open an archive but could not recognize the extension or signature!?!


Anybody got any ideas whats causing this and how I can resolve this issue, please?

You have to make sure that the downloads are done by the Nexus CDN server. I would change it in MO and the your Nexus profile.

The reason the install process is failing is, as @GSDFan instructs, the downloads from any other servers are not complete but most likely they are 0Kb long, thus MO2 cannot do anything with them.
