Rage Plugin Hook "Failed to find and validate resource:"

Recommended Posts

I initially wanted to post this on the Rage Plugin Hook forum, but for some reason I'm having troubles making an account there so that's why I'm hoping to find some help here.


Yesterday I started modding my GTA V game, LSPDFR with Rage Plugin Hook including. Had no problems getting it all installed and set up and everything worked fine in-game.

This morning I wanted to explore the mods I had already installed a bit more before adding any others but when I launched RagePluginHook.exe it gave me the error message "Could not start.". I looked through the "RagePluginHookLauncher" log file in my GTA V directory:

As you can see, it "failed to find and validate resource". I don't know what this means. I've tried troubleshooting it but couldn't find anything. Know that I changed nothing in my GTA V directory between the all the succesfull launches yesterday and the failed launches today, at least not knowingly. I can successfully launch the game directly via Steam or via GTA5.exe in its directory with all mods not requiring Rage Plugin Hook loaded. I checked for updates for both these mods and the programs they require to run (vcredist for example), but everything was and is up to date.

Any help regarding this is greately appreciated! I can provide more specific info if asked as I'm not sure what's important to know.
