Selected Test Results

What works

  • Installation
  • Linking of NXM mods from linux web browser (workaround)
  • Banners and news sections
  • Logging into Nexus
  • Actual downloading of mods
  • Overall GUI usability seems to work (stability uncertain)

What does not

  • Installation of mods presents a white screen with the following error in wine related to web scripts.

Possibly the main error is:

Unhandled Exception:
System.MissingMethodException: Method 'System.Web.Script.Serialization.ScriptIgnoreAttribute.get_ApplyToOverrides' not found.
[ERROR] FATAL UNHANDLED EXCEPTION: System.MissingMethodException: Method 'System.Web.Script.Serialization.ScriptIgnoreAttribute.get_ApplyToOverrides' not found.


The linking of nxm links is similar trick to how the nxmhandler works but you need to use the line below to direct it towards Vortex.

This method is further explained on the Mod Organizer (MO) AppDB page:

"${WINE}" "${WINEPREFIX:-${WINE}/.wine}/drive_c/Program Files/Black Tree Gaming Ltd/Vortex/Vortex.exe" -d "$@"

What was not tested

  • Execution of game as there is not much point until we can install a mod first.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

I'm not an advanced user of wine in general but I can do basic problem solving, others might know exactly how to fix this problem by installing a certain package such as visual c 2012 and doing something to resolve this? Please share.

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.
