    Since this application seems to be abandoned, to anyone that has this application crash on launch and not be able to use it at all because of this error:

    "Filter string you provided is not valid. The filter string must contain a description of the filter, followed by the vertical bar (|) and the filter pattern. The strings for different filtering options must also be separated by the vertical bar. Example: "Text files (*.txt)|*.txt|All files (*,*)|*,*"
    It's because of a missing registry key with the Steam/Origin versions of the game. I ran the program through a .NET decompiler to see what's going on, and on startup it's trying to read the following (string) registry key to determine the install location of the game:

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Red Dead Redemption 2\InstallLocation

    If that registry key doesn't exist, it returns null to the calling function which is trying to feed that variable to the file picker dialog, and that's what causes the filter error and crash. To resolve, run cmd as Administrator and run this command:

    reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Red Dead Redemption 2" /v "InstallLocation" /d "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Red Dead Redemption 2"

    The above command is applicable for the Steam version of the game. If you have Origin, I don't know what the path to the install location is, but you can adjust the above command by replacing what's after the /d in the command with Origin's RDR2 install location. Make sure to put that path in quotes like in the example above.

    That's the only thing that will fix this short of the the mod's author fixing the problem himself. Bilago, if you're reading this, adjust the "InstallRegPath" variable assignment in GetSettings.cs., it's what's causing this.

      Adding the install directory in the registry worked, thank you.

      I followed these steps but I have the epic games version so my install path was different, I added the correct path and on the cmd it said it was sucessful but I am still getting the same error.

      Thanks for your post. I have a tiny improvement for adding reg item.
      1, Create a batch file in your rdr2 root directory, make sure the extension name is .bat.
      2, Edit it with your favourite editor
      3, Add the code as follows:?reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Red Dead Redemption 2" /v "InstallLocation" /d %~dp0
      4, Then run it as administrator. It will read the current path and add the reg "InstallLocation".
      5, That's all, the mod manager should work.

      The code in the original post is working fine for me in Windows 11. Make sure you're running Command Prompt as an admin and be sure to change the path to where your copy of Red Dead 2 is installed. to.

    I recommend nobody download this as of 2021, I tried it on a mod that goes under the "x64" folder and when I clicked "RDR2:ONLINE" it deleted the entire x64 folder. I had to download 40gb to repair my game install.

      Just curious, was it the Skip legal screens mod? I believe I just had the exact same thing happen as it's downloading 40gbs lol. Thought there was an update today or something.

      "Heur" in the name refers to "heuristic" as in "that is not any virus I know, but it kinda looks like it could potentially be one"

      Happened to me too after telling me access to the install path was denied, just sounded like I needed to run as administrator and that fixed it.
