When you launch FNIS (I have a desktop shortcut), rather than double-clicking it, right-click and select "run as administrator" from the context menu. FNIS wants elevated privileges, even if your user account is an administrator. Go figure. Gopher just did an excellent video tutorial on FNIS over on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XLZ2OLK4k68) that might be helpful if you think you might need some additional info.

For FNIS related mods, need to run FNIS generator (for users) prior entering game'
Make sure you tick the correct boxes (7 of them), read what modder tell you and tick the right box.
Run Consistence Check as well

I encountered this myself, and looking at the post above I can see that you probably did the same thing I did. Short story, I created a "shortcut" on my desktop before running the program. The problem is that Windows doesn't create shortcuts the same way as a Mac, and instead of creating a shortcut I COPIED the entire program onto the desktop. The FNIS program uses relative program referencing using the "tool" folder it creates in the Data folder as the starting location (my assumption). Since you are running the program from the desktop, it is trying to find files that can no longer be found where it thinks they should be.

YOUR REGISTRY IS NOT BROKEN !!!! and you do not need scam 3rd party software to fix it. All I had to do was navigate to the tools folder and launch the FNIS program from there. It should work fine, and when you finish it will ask if you want to create a desktop short-cut, which will point to the right place. You can also right-click on the executable file and select "create an alias" to make a correct alias, then move that to the desktop.

I'm gonna post this here because I encountered this problem:

I got the Problem "ERROR(2001): templates\defaultfemale_Template.txt" because I used NMM to install FNIS from the Nexus site.

Download the File and add those Files from the .zip manually.

There are files in the downloaded .zip data, but when I installed it with NMM they weren't added.

sounds like an install problem is Net Framework etc all working ?,i usually don't put my Skyrim files on the same drive as Windows due to the UAC crap (i've got it on another drive )...did you try manual install rather than NMM ?
try using Mod Manager

The problem is that with the stupid "Virtual folder" you cannot use symbolic link your self while it's the exact same thing as using "multihd".
So if you don't put the virtual folder on the same drive as the game it only extract esp bsp etc.

I still don't understand why it cannot extract other mod completely... I guess it does not use a clean way to manage files and folders so junction or symlink failed to be process...
This is just showing how bad the dev are... (why forcing players to use virtual folder anyway ???)
