I see Steam mods in my installation, interesting. I guess go through this please!


- unsubscribe from all mods
- delete the folder Documents/paradox/Stellaris/mod/
- delete the file Documents/paradox/Stellaris/mods_registry.json
- delete the file Documents/paradox/Stellaris/launcher-v2.sqlite
- subscribe to a few mods
- run the game up and see if those mods are now available to you.

Hamakaze said: Yeah, that didn't work. It's thoroughly borked for me.
Add C:/users//AppData/Local/Programs/Paradox Interactive/launcher-v2.2021.1/paradox launcher.exe to the exceptions list of your antivirus app; ESPECIALLY if you have Windows Defender, add it to the Ransomware "Apps Allowed Through" list.


If that doesn't work let's try a clean reinstall of the launcher too.

- exit the Steam app entirely
- uninstall Paradox Launcher v2 from the Windows "Apps and features" utility, if still present.

Delete the following folders if still present:

- C:/users//AppData/Local/Programs/Paradox Interactive/
- C:/users//AppData/Local/Paradox Interactive/
- C:/users//AppData/Roaming/Paradox Interactive/launcher-v2/
To see the AppData folder you'll need to enable View Hidden Items in File Explorer.

- run steam.exe as the Windows Admin user

- run the game from the PLAY button in Steam

EcrofLeinad said: Yeah, this is the same thing that happened in January. They released an in development launcher (version 2020.17). They "fixed" the issue by re-releasing 2020.16 (although the folder/files downloaded said 2020.17.1). 2021.1 appears to be the same exact launcher as 2020.17 with all of the same Steam Workshop Mod related issues. Read all about the 2020.17 release here: https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/threads/unplanned-launcher-release-of-2020-17.1453117/
2021.1 does not have all the same issues that the accidental release of 2020.17 did, for instance the Javascript error.


The process two posts above yours does seem to work for pretty much everyone. Here's my version of it:

- unsubscribe from all mods
- delete the folder Documents/paradox/Stellaris/mod/
- delete the file Documents/paradox/Stellaris/mods_registry.json
- delete the file Documents/paradox/Stellaris/launcher-v2.sqlite

Add Stellaris.exe to the exceptions list of your antivirus app; ESPECIALLY if you have Windows Defender, add it to the Ransomware "Apps Allowed Through" list. You should add steam.exe and C:/users//AppData/Local/Programs/Paradox Interactive/launcher-v2.2021.1/paradox launcher.exe to that list.

- subscribe to a few mods
- run the game up and see if those mods are now available to you.

I hope that does it for you!

Xalya said: The only way i get it to work, is to disable my Avast Antivirus.
as long as my Antivirus is running, no mods.
As above, if you except the game and launcher .exe files it should work. You may need to contact Avast support to get that set up right.
