One Windows account won't have the saves of the other?

Also, wouldn't they still conflict, even without save issues?

They shouldn't conflict because the option/setting and save files will be in user#1>my documents and user#2>my documents.

I tried that. I can't install using the disc/installer because then I thinks I want to uninstall what I already have, and if I simply copy the folder, OBMM cannot tell them apart.

Does the your TC change the core game files, or is it like a regular mod that just adds the changed files to a separate folder? I'm not sure you need 2 installations if you can just switch the mod off/on as you wish. I know I have the Nehrim Total conversion installed alongside my regular OB, I can play either just fine, just have to select which mods you want to load on startup..

TES games were always good that way (well at least Morrowind too) where you could select mods to apply to the game at any time pretty easily..

Do you actually need OBMM for both? OBMM is nice to add remove modify mods, but once you're set you shouldn't need them anymore.
So you could modify one the way you want it, then copy and paste the whole folder somewhere else. Then install a new vanilla install and modify that one the way you want it.

Also I'm not sure how Oblivion installs, but sometimes games have an option to install "for every user on this computer" or for "myself only". Dunno if it has this but it would help a lot.

I'm not sure. It's the Nehrim conversion, which I haven't used yet because I'm afraid of losing what I have. (Though now I may do it anyway, it seems my current save tree has become totally corrupted. Cannot fast travel or wait, regardless of mod load order. Really ticks me off, because it worked two days ago an NOTHING has changed since then...)

I'll try that too.

I'll try reinstalling to see if this works.
