I have downloaded everything but when I hit run data-explorer ++ opens and it says game is locked while page is open. Hitting unlock does nothing. did I do something wrong uploading the files? This is my first time trying to run any mods.

First thing to try upon hitting any "data locked" condition is power rebooting your computer.  Otherwise you have to determine which program has obtained the "lock" and how they implement it to clear it out properly.  Rebooting should do that for you.  Close out of all programs cleanly and use the "shutdown" signout option.  Do NOT just hit the power button.

 

A "power reboot" is sometimes called a "hard reboot" because you need to power off the computer, and wait at least 10-15 seconds before powering it on again.  Note this not a "hibernation" mode reboot, which preserves the memory state of the system at the time it goes down.  You need to clear that system memory out to get rid of the "lock".
