I am puzzled how I can install Add Ons when my account is via Steam.
I downloaded Minion and there is no explanation of what to do with it (Thanks Minion)
ESOUI has all these people writing about the installation but it is such a mix up and so complicated and it tells you oh well, now you put this into the folder...... when I don't even have such a folder and cannot imagine just making a folder called Elder Scrolls Online Add Ons and it will put it in there
In short - I am lost
Well I gave Minion and ESOUI the business of having a new member
Now I can go away and get lost
(I have spent the last three hours trying to find the add ons Einstein menu)
Forum search for steam, read 3 threads which got to do with Minion:
I had ESO installed through Steam.
The folder wasn't being found, even when I manually added it.
I tried deleting the .xml file.
What did work for me:
In settings you can select the folder search depth that Minion will use to find the folder.
I moved this up to a depth of 6.
I then clicked force Minion to redetect addOns.
Folder was found.
Hope this helps
Okay the CORRECT path was C:\Users\<username>\Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\live\AddOns\
Notice that path is Documents, not My Documents.
I noticed this was stated before, but when I go into Windows Explorer and navigate to
C:\Users\<username>\ there is a My Documents displayed in there, but not Documents.
Specifically, Windows displays the Documents folder as "My Documents", but the folder name is literally "Documents".
That was my point of error.
