FNV executable disappeared

Post by Safisan » Tue Oct 15, 2019 4:18 am

Installed 3.2.2 with ogg encoding in the default destination, have no mods installed. Managed to play for a couple hours across multiple sessions, and then couldn't find the FNV.exe in the FNV folder. Attempting to run it from MO will read 'executable not found' (though it wasn't installed via MO2), attempting to run it from falloutNV_backup.exe yields "Fallout:New Vegas does not appear to be installed and the installer could not be found. Try exploring to your DVD-ROM drive and selecting setup.exe to install the game."

Have reinstalled FO3/FNV/TTW before to solve this, but I'd rather not go through that again. Is there another fix known? I couldn't find any searching or on the FAQ
Thanks in advance!

Never heard or seen this problem before :shock: .

Only thing that comes to mind is protection software somehow flagging (false positive) the .exe as a threat and quarantine/delete it... :|
