I realize I probably sound like an idiot asking this lol, but I'm not exceptionally tech-savvy. I've hit a number of borderline quest-breaking bugs in Dawnguard, some of which I'm told can only be solved by uninstalling and reinstalling Dawnguard. How do I go about doing so on PC with Steam? I wasn't sure if simply unchecking and rechecking the box in the Data Files window would work, and before I start messing with stuff, I figured I'd ask here, since Google didn't seem to help much.

Again, apologies for sounding so dumb lol, but any help is appreciated.

I'm not exactly sure these are the only two files that are added by the DLC, but by the looks of it, they are.
All you need to do is delete dawnguard.esm and dawnguard.bsa in your data folder. Then go to Skyrim in your Steam library, and verify the integrity of the game cache.

i too am having the same issues. there's some incompatibility issues with some of my mods and my characters where suck in first person. I have removed dawnguard but how do you re down load? Im going to try to verify the game cache and see if that with re install the dlc.


"edit" So you go to the page of the dlc and click the already own play now button. it will be green and its will start the download process.

It doesn't start the download process. It just starts the launcher and doesn't do anything more that if I were to just hit 'Play Game' on my home Skyrim tab.

I played Dawnguard once, but then my game CTD, and Dawnguard disappeared. It's like I had never bought it. And it refuses to redownload.
