Hey Guys, so I just started playing Skyrim again because i got a new computer and i wanted to try out a bunch of mods. with Sky UI being one of them i downloaded SKSE and installed it according to this video i followed everything to the letter and when i tried to run the skse loader it spits out a "couldn't find TESV.exe" which is crap because its right there. I tried searching for someone having the same issue but i cant find anything. If anyone could tell me what i'm doing wrong or what the issue is i would appreciate it.

Thanks

Try following the installation instructions that are in the skse download instead.

I had this problem. What I found I'd done wrong was I was pointing the shortcut at the skse loader in the unzipped folder. Since that's about as clear as mud do this:

right click your desktop shortcut

choose properties

in "target" make sure the correct file path is there, for me it's "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Skyrim\skse_loader.exe" (include the ")

hope this helps

I am having the same problem. I installed according to the video and SKSE directions as well. I am reading your above comment, but I still do not understand which shortcut you mean or how to edit the target location. Any help you could give me would be great. Thank you in advanced.

The SKSE files MUST be in the SAME folder as your TESV.EXE. Also need to have a legit version of skyrim....
