What works

Everything I tested works (FNIS, drag&drop installation, logging in), using for modding Skyrim SE.

What does not

Installation without dotnet.


Installed dotnet 4.6.2 to get the version 0.17.8 of Vortex to work, not sure if it's needed, preinstalled after reading earlier review.

What was not tested

Using for other games than Skyrim.

White screen error

The error message posted in the test result is referencing a missing System.Web.Script.Serialization class set, which is part of the .NET framework, so I suspect the install failures are due to missing a recent .net on which Vortex apparently depends.

Vortex would be mostly useful for 64-bit games like SkyrimSE. Unfortunately at present installation of .NET on 64-bit prefixes is extremely difficult if not impossible, winetricks certainly cannot manage it.

If we can find a reliable way to install .net4.6 on a 64-bit prefix, this program may become the solution to the dearth of a decent 64-bit modmanager on wine.

Then it only requests .NET use at MOD install time. I have not see any requirements of dotnet installation on the official page or forums but I could have missed it.

Also I did test it with dotnet 4.62 installed however I suspect it doesn't install correctly due to other dotnet programs only getting so far on launch time.
(i.e. NMM will scan fine for games but as soon as you select a game title it spits a error out).

It should also be mentioned that I got Wyre Bash python version (not exe version) working if people need something in the meanwhile until these easier to use programs like Vortex start working. Wyre Bash is great but not particularly user friendly.
