Did you put skse_loader.exe in the same folder as TESV.exe? Dont put it in ..\skyrim\Data\

Dont bump threads. People have been banned for it.:thumbsup:

Your really not giving anyone any information we need to help you troubleshoot. What is this video that told you NOT to put skse_loader.exe in your main Skyrim folder because that is exactly what you need to do. Where are your SKSE files right now? How are you trying to start your game after you installed SKSE? Did you even try doing what I said? Did you READ THE "SKSE_README.TXT"?! Here Ill copy and paste the readme that was included in the SKSE download since I have nothing better to do.

[ Installation ]
1. Copy the .dll and .exe files to your Skyrim directory. This is usually in your Program Files folder under Steam\SteamApps\common\skyrim\. If you see files named TESV and SkyrimLauncher, this is the correct folder. Do not copy these files to the Data folder as with a normal mod. The "src" folder is only useful for programmers, most users can ignore it.

2. Launch the game via running skse_loader.exe.
Scripts written with these new commands must be created via the editor after it is launched via skse_loader. Open a command prompt window, navigate to your Skyrim directory, and type "skse_loader -editor". Alternately you can create a shortcut to skse_loader.exe, open the properties window and add "-editor" to the Target field. The normal editor can open plugins with these extended scripts, but it cannot recompile them and will give errors if you try.


The error you are getting is because you put SKSE_Loader.exe in the wrong directory. RTFM

1 DO NOT put anything from SKSE into the /data folder (per instructions)
2. DO put the files in the same folder as the Tesv.exe file (per instructions also)
3. Launch every time from now on using the SKSE_loader.exe and NOT the skyrim launcher (also per instructions)
4. Make a shortcut of the SKSE_Loader.exe and put it on the desktop (or wherever you start the game from)

Possible problems
1. Not using a legal version - SKSE was designed to work with the steam version only. And NO, they are not planning on making a non steam version.
2. Not unzipping the files first
3. Not starting every time with the SKSE_Loader.exe

I have the same problem, but it only occurs when I open skse from a shortcut. If I go to the steam folder and open the actual .exe it works fine. Maybe that will work for you as well?

Cheers,

To be fair, it is possible that the OP used the Nexus Mod Manager and SKSE installed where the manager told it to.

I had the same issue.
