Minion won't update or install
 
3 Attachment(s)
Hello all,

My problem currently is the fact, that Minion won't update my Addons or install new ones.

I used to have Auto update turned on, but have since turned that off. I have had this problem since One Tamriel came out and I can't figure out how to fix it. It haven't really been a problem till now, since my chat log in constantly spammed with. "Update your Addons"

I have checked for Minion running multipul times and restarted after turning "Auto update" off, but it still dosen't download or update anything.

I am using 64 Bit minion (Or should be anyhow)
The problem:

Did you try to reset the addon detection, redetect the game and addon folders?
You can achieve this by using the settings located at the top right corner of minion (gear-wheel icon).

Netsrac 02/15/17 03:18 PM

I had not tired it before this, but I just tried it now.
I clicked the two top once, for redetecting addons and games. But nothing really seemed to happen. and it still can't update.

Minion is getting (Access is denied) when trying to write the new updated addons to C:\Users\Carsten\Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\live\AddOns\ .

Close Minion. Then on the icon right click and choose "Run as administrator", does it work now? Some reason your windows permissions on the AddOns folder isn't allowing Minion to write to it using default privileges.

Added a ticket to our backlog to have Minion detect this issue and prompt users about the problem and possibly prompt to elevate privileges.

I was hoping it might work. But sadly after turning minion off and starting it as Admin it still just stood there and did not update.

Dolby 02/15/17 04:42 PM

Can you post your minion.log again, interested to see what it says now that it has admin privileges?

Netsrac 02/16/17 05:17 AM

Right I am not sure if this was okay. But my Log file was 2.2mb large so the site would not let me upload it.
I put it on filedropper instead.

Thanks,

If you open the folder C:\Users\Carsten\Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\live\AddOns\
You should see a bunch of folders which is good but do you see a bunch of .zip files too? If you see a bunch of zip files delete them. Restart Minion and try updating again. Let me know if you see zip files in the AddOns folder either way.

The errors in the log now are saying Minion can't overwrite the zipfiles it previously downloaded due to permission issues.

The .log file should compress well, so you could also zip it before you attach it here.

Netsrac 02/16/17 05:36 PM

I could not find anything in the Live folders. I did however find a Zip file in the LiveEU that was created when one Tamriel just came out.
But I removed that, restarted and ran as admin and that did nothing really.

Baertram 02/16/17 06:33 PM

liveEU folder is not valid anymore as with OneTamriel live + liveu got changed to just "live".

Netsrac 02/16/17 08:10 PM

Yeah that I know and the folder I have all my addons saved to is live. Which is why I was fairly sure that the zip in the LiveEU wouldnt do anything. But I did not find any in the Live folder

Dolby 02/16/17 08:25 PM

Are you able to copy files to that AddOn folder? Wondering if you even have permission to write that folder or maybe some how the ESO AddOn folder is locked or corrupted. Download an AddOn manually and move it there or really any file you have handy. Does it stay there or do you get a permissions error?

Netsrac 02/17/17 06:49 AM

I moved some files from LiveEU to Live and had no problems if that, I made a new document and moved that in there with no problems.

Dolby 02/17/17 09:40 AM

This is very strange as the minion.log is saying its experiencing (Access is denied) when it tries to write the AddOn zip files to your AddOn folder.

Do you have a security program other than the windows default one that could possibly be blocking Minion from writing to that folder?

Baertram 02/17/17 11:46 AM

Maybe Minion is not executed with administartor rights correctly?
Be sure to right click the minion link and say "Run as administrator".

Bit Defender might, but Im not sure why it would

And yes I am sure I right clicked and pressed run as admin, still did not work.

It is definitely one of Bitdefenders new "features". This also can be a problem when saving for some programs or games. Because of this thread and my own experiences with Bitdefender I was able to track the bug down.
I do not have the english version of bitdefender, so I have to guess how the "feature" is called there, but I will try.

Go to the BD icon in the info field. Right click and choose "show" (Anzeigen).
On the window that opens, choose "show functions" (Funktionen anzeigen). It is approximately in the middle of the window on its right side. Just a text with the > symbol.
On the next screen deactivate the "safe files" (sichere Dateien) option. It is the bottom right field.

Shortly after I installed Bitdefender I played Fallout 4. I played about 3 to 4 hours, saving some times because I was building a settlement. A day afterwards I tried to load the safe game. But imagine my surprise as I found nothing of my recent built buldings. At first I imagined a failure in loading the latest safe game. But after some searching I found there simply were no safes I made. Well, maybe a bug ffrom the latest Bethesda update, I thought. Then, I came to safe a file from an email to one of windows standard folders (music, videos, downloads, documents,...). But it also did not work. That made me think and I checked Bitdefenders logs. There I found the reason. "Safe files" is blocking every writing access to windows standard user folders.
I already told their support that this "feature" has more of a bug, but well, companys. They will just learn when some other company will sue them because some of their work is blocked from saving states.

Same problem here but I'm not using Bit Defender. I'll try to temporary disabling Avira.
EDIT: I've added minion folders to exception and now it works fine.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling everything. I've tried force refresh. I checked to make sure anti-virus was letting it through. I made sure there were no .exe's. Attached is the log file and a screenshot.

Baertram 05/07/18 01:17 AM

What in detail is minion not doing? The log file tells me it is updating or at least fetching your addon info properly and it was installing them. At least Lorebooks, Skyshards and others.
So what exactly is the problem here?

Started as admin? Your windows user folder is not containing any non-latin chars?
Firewall lets Minion pass?
