Well, it must be an access problem with your MO installation.

I'll make the assumption you have MO installed to somewhere like C:\Program Files (x86)\Mod Organizer\ or maybe C:\Games\Steam\steamapps\common\Fallout New Vegas\Mod Organizer\

 

Regardless of where it is now, install a new installation into a place completely isolated from any possible Windows interference, even a place like:

C:\Tools\Mod Organizer\ and have this install manage your FNV. You may need to give any shortcuts it creates new names so they don't conflict with your current ones.

When you run this instance ensure you get all the messages and prompts like running the tutorials and the question of which game to manage. That way we will know that it is using completely fresh ini files.

Add the FNV4GB executable as we have it now and see if the message persists.

Ok, i installed a new mod organizer to C:\Games\Tools\Mod Organizer got the tutorial thing and which game to manage. I added the 4GB FNV to this new Mod Organizer using the dropdown executables and used the binary to where it originaly was (i haven't moved it, not sure if i was supposed to). I still get the access denied warning when trying to launch.

Is there a way you can take a screenshot of that error message? Can you determine if it comes from Windows or MO or if there is any other information that it provides?

 

Also remind me of what versions of MO and Windows you have and if your system is patched and up-to-date. Just to be sure.

I might have to think on this one, if you have all the correct permissions and this install is also free or UAC control I can't see why there would be an access denied error.

I'm not entirely sure if it comes from windows or MO, but i think it probably comes from windows. I've got a screenshot here, unfortunately this is the only info it gives me.

 

I'm running:

Windows 8.1

MO v1.2.18

 

I'm not too sure what you mean by system patched and up to date. I recently reset to factory settings about a week ago and did all the important windows updates.

 

One thing to note (im not sure if it matters) but when using the MO for skyrim i can launch skse just fine with no problems.

Oh one thing that could be worth mentioning is that originally steam and fallout was installed to programfiles (86) but i moved it by doing it how steam says to do it (i know it's not good to just move the folders), so i did it this way - https://support.stea...php?p_faqid=231

Fingers crossed. Sorry I can't offer anything further.

I was having the exact same problem as you and I don't know if you managed to get it running on your own, but after spending the best part of the day tinkering about, pulling my hair out and barely resisting the urge to throw my laptop against a wall, I found a solution that worked for me in a thread on the old NV4GB page.  Essentially you should have your argument in MO set to:
 

-laaexe .\Fallout MO.exe -Steam App ID 22380

 

You need to check what the Steam App ID for your copy of New Vegas is and change it accordingly.  To do that, open up Steam, go to your library.  Right click on Fallout New Vegas and add an icon to your desktop.  After that, go to that shortcut, right click and look at the properties.  Look at the web document tab and that should give you the information you need.  

If you've had no joy, I really hope this helps!  You can find the original thread here:  https://forums.nexus...gas/?p=24468794

 

I seriously want to shout this from the rooftop as I've seen so many other posts today where they've been having the same problem!

I was having exactly the same issue as the OP, and this fix worked perfectly for me. However, the text in the main menu is now missing...
