I've been trying to use Wrye Bash (launched through Mod Organizer 1.3.8) to create a bashed patch. The process gets all the way to the end but then throws this error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "bash\basher.pyo", line 7068, in Execute
File "bash\bosh.pyo", line 3288, in refresh
File "bash\bolt.pyo", line 1207, in ctime
File "genericpath.pyo", line 64, in getctime
WindowsError: [Error 2] The system cannot find the file specified: u'C:\\Users\\Nick\\Documents\\My Games\\Steam\\SteamApps\\common\\Skyrim\\Data\\Bashed Patch, 0.esp'

Edit: note that this error is produced by Wrye Bash and is opened in another window named: wxPython: stdout/stderr

I copied the template in the Mopy folder, pasted it into the Data folder, and renamed it "Bashed Patch, 0.esp" as I saw suggested on a different thread but that did not seem to do anything.

Checking the overwrite folder in Mod Organizer, it seems there is a Batched Patch, 0.esp that is 240kb. That seems kind of small and I would imagine that the batched patch creation process is supposed to actually finish instead of throwing an error.

In case it helps, here is my load order as well (which likely has some issues; also note that this is before running any of the patchers for PerMa, ASIS, or DSR as that is what the tutorials said to do):

Basically, I'm not really sure what the problem is since the Bashed Patch, 0 file is in the correct place. If any additional information is needed, I can provide that as well.

Thank you!

    The comma in the file name is bugging me. Have you tried without the comma and just put a space and maybe replace space by underscore _ ? Putting space or special characters beside A-z0-9_ is a bad practice in file renaming IMO. – Warface Jul 20 '15 at 13:39
  • Normally I wouldn't use spaces or commas but I figured since it specified that format, I'd use that. I tried Bashed Patch 0.esp, Bashed_Patch_0.esp, Bashed Patch,_0.esp, and Bashed_Patch,_0.esp. None of these worked. They all create a file in the overwrite mod that is ~220kb but I'm not sure if its a proper/useful patch since the process didn't actually finish. – shadowninja1012 Jul 21 '15 at 2:20

Based on these symptoms, I suspect the following:

  1. You installed Wrye Bash Python edition, rather than standalone.
  2. Your Python is 64-bit.
  3. Mod Organizer can't do filesystem redirection for 64-bit applications.
  4. Therefore it can't find the ESP file, and it dies.

Fortunately, the nice folks at S.T.E.P. have written a detailed guide to making either version of Wrye Bash work correctly under Mod Organizer. I recommend using the standalone version, because it does not require messing around with Python. You just point Mod Organizer at the binary and go.

If you must use Python, make sure you install the 32-bit version of Python (2.7.x, don't use 3.x because that's a whole different ball game). https://www.python.org describes this as "Windows x86 MSI installer" once you click through to "Latest Python 2 release" from the Windows downloads page. The rest of your setup appears to work (or else you would not have gotten as far as you did), so you should only need to replace your Python interpreter. Alternatively, you can switch to the standalone version of Wrye Bash and skip all of this nonsense.
