What to do?

@Gallstafff01: when you use XPMS then you should use the XPMS patch as well, not the CHSBHC arm fix.
@pajunkisssa: send me a screenshot by pm. But I don't think I can help you. Something is badly broken in your Windows, or .NET
@Gravid: can anyone tell me how I could phrase this issue, so people will understand? You are using default skeletons (meaning you have no custom skeleton installed) But you you have activated the arm fix patch for the CHSBHC skeleton. Which you don't use. So why would you use this patch?
@knovack1: FNIS Spells are for demonstration purposes only. There is no effort whatsoever to integrate them into the game logic.
@SocialyInept: look at the first few lines of the PCEA description. xp32 will remove those files again when she makes an update.
@BenjaminRaspel: this is not enough information to tell. Send me you log file via pm
@makavely91: if it's a great mod, then why do you have to uninstall. But anyway, there is a de-installation section
@systemhendrix: FNIS does not cause CTD when installed without PCEA.

@narphous: the path for 1hm_idle.hkx can be changed from "animation" to "animation/female" (or the same for male) because of 2 reasons: 1) you patch xp32's "New Animation for 1H Weapon", or 2) you patch Gender and have a file 1hm_idle.hkx in you animationsfemale. Of course, if you then remove animations/female/1hm.hkx and DON'T run the generator again, then you will get half-T instead of the idle, because the engine won't find an animation file with that path and name. If you generate without any of these 2 patches, and remove this file (animations/1hm_idle.hkx), nothing bad will happen. The engine just uses the file from its .bsa.
1) I always run the generate utility if I do anything in animations, even replace an existing file. I'm pretty religious about that.
2) I've found more animations that were failing related to shield and stagger. Placing the vanilla animations in the animations/male folder and running the generate utility seems to at least get animations that play.
3) This seems to be the problem I've been having since updating to the 3.4 beta and trying, then removing http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/29649 (and running the generate utility between all steps), animations aren't found by the game where they're supposed to be.
In any case, I'm tired of messing with it. I found a work around, which is just dump the failing animations into the male folder and run the generate utility. At least all the animations seem to play correctly now.

The second sin I've committed is the hubris of having three monitors, I have trouble running Skyrim on a triple set, I have trouble running Skyrim with mods, hence the move. Steam didn't think I was stealing it btw, everything I've run since the move has been fine. I now discover that since many mods rely on FNIS to function and FNIS refuses to function unless its programmer's sense of moral superiority is satisfied.
So now I have to copy the game-file directory (again), uninstall Steam (to remove old registry entries), reinstall Steam, and to ice the cake reinstall all the mods into Skyrim again because I've learned through my previous experiences that though something like l4d can take mods with it, Skyrim is not so robust and I have to start from scratch. I bought the freaking game plus dlc, have played it (according to Steam) for about 20 hours and haven't gotten past character generation but once, and then I just got to the nearest village. I refuse to play vanilla with all the mods out there, that is why I bought the game.
I appreciate the communities efforts. But... IT SHOULD NOT BE THIS HARD! I struggle not to be rude, rude bruises the delicate sensibilities of the populace and gets you kicked off boards, but good God! I feel like a dog jumping through hoops, that are on fire, over pools of kerosene.

@Broski626: I'm getting crazy about these stupid Antivirus programs, complaining about the generator, or in your case about hkxcmd. I guess you use Webroot. Make your AV accept hkxcmd.exe, and everything will work.
@Dareshiranu: you don't have to make a Skyrim re-install just because of this non-legal warning. FNIS will deliver the same result with or without the warning. This message is only there for me to identify cases where I will refuse any support. In your case you don't have to make a complete re-install. See the FAQ instruction for a quick re-install, written by a helpful user who had the same issue you have right now. But when in 20 hours of playing you have not come past Riverwood, I think you should re-evaluate your mod using strategy. NEVER add more than a couple of mods at once. Then play with them for a while, then add the next. And so on. Everything else is harakiri. I played at least 50 hours before I installed my first mod. And I was an experienced Oblivion modder and user.
@ragonaki: did you move 1hm_unequip to female (it's not that way in the female animation pack). Did you move or delete this file after running the generator? Do you use PCEA?
