All the mods on here are so old that the instructions of changing the target loaction are for Windows XP or Vista. On Windows 7 on up there is no target path available.  It just says lotrbfme.exe and the location all greyed out.  There are only 5 tabs and none of them have to do with changing the target location to get mods to work.  That's one of my major pet peeves since the 64 bit change Microsoft did was rename the control panel and redo a lot of stuff making it harder to find and more clicks to do things.


Windows XP and 98 were the most user friendly and had the most options.


I have seen some other posts describing the same problem but not very clear answer.

I'm a bit late, but it is possible, you're just doing it wrong. You're not supposed to use the lotrbfme.exe file. Instead, make a shortcut of it and put it on the desktop or something (unless you don't already have one after installing the game), then right-click on that.
