Minion often simply does not show anything in the UI and it looks like it hangs. After closing and restarting it and waiting a bit it often "all of sudden" updates, if antivirus and firewalls or anti malware or other tools do not block it somehow.
Glad it works now, thanks for the info.
After installing Minion, from Start Menu, start Minion under Good Games Mods LLC, but RIGHT CLICK, choose More and RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR!
This was mentioned before, but not directly!
It was mentioned directly, here:
Start Minion with priviledged administrator rights, if the addons are not updated or it fails to access the default installation folder c:\users ... (right click the link of Minion on your desktop/start menu, choose "Properties" and then choose "Start as administrator" in the enhanced settings.)
You should always look at the sticky posts first, at the forums, as they contain most questions and answers and troubleshooting already.
