I've tried to install the SSE Engine bug fixes that require Microsoft Visual Runtime for Visual Studio 2019. While the game runs fine without vcrun2019 installed, I've discovered that it needs to be installed on the specific winefix installed for the game by proton. So, I use protontricks to install vcrun2019 for the skyrim special edition wineprefix. However, as soon as I launch the game, the SKSE terminal immediately closes after opening. After I uninstall vcrun2019, I still get the same result? Am I using a version of proton that is messing up the installation of vcrun2019, or is this a linux/wine problem with installing vcrun2019 with specific proton games?


I feel like I'm stuck with windows for the best modded skyrim experience.

CPU: Ryzen 5 3600

GPU: RX 6700xt

You might try posting your question on Steam's "Hardware and Operating Systems" forum. They have some very knowledgeable people on that forum, in my opinion.


It;s at least worth a shot.
