Was stuck at "Loading ESO AddOns." This is how I fixed it.

I have tried everything I can think of.

Reinstalled; tried x32 bit. tried x64 bit. erased .minion\minion.xml file. removed all addons and addon config file from ESO. reinstalled java. runs as administrator. added an exception to windows firewall for Minion 3. i'm not sure what to do at this point.

Here is the result of the page the admins here linked in another thread, to ensure connection to the ESOUI servers.

uag=Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/56.0.2924.87 Safari/537.36
Here is a screenshot of where it is "stuck" at:


Turns out, when I opened the minion.xml config to look at it one last time before uploading it to this post. I saw "game scan depth" and "concurrent updates" lines, and thought, maybe it is getting stuck on scanning. So I edited those to "1" - I think this makes the scan fail instnatly, and allowed me to select the addons folder. Minion locked up from there, but after closing it and restarting it, it started to work in what I assume is a normal way since I never used it before, but I'm able to browse addons and install them.

This was originally meant to be a request for help, but figure I might as well post it to let others know how I managed to get it to work in the last second. Very frustrating but great program.

Hi KRosen333,

Thanks for posting this info even though you fixed your problem. You shouldn't have to set the game scan depth to 1 to get Minion to work. Minion must have encountered a fault when scanning your system for games and this shouldn't happen.

Do you have your minion.log file from when Minion was stuck on loading? It's stored in your .minion folder so if that was deleted then that info is probably gone. If you still have it can you attach it here since I am wondering if the log shows any permission errors during the game scan?

If its too large to attach here you can email it to my forum name @mmoui.com
