Hello. I've been using Vortex since it came out and have been enjoying modding Skyrim SE since 2017.


I've been trying to start a brand new modlist, but keep getting the "CefInitialized Failed" error after the game attempts to get to the main menu for a bit. This happens everytime I try to load the game through the SKSE button on Vortex and I can't even get to the main menu.

I'm just looking to see if anyone knows what this error means and if they have any idea how to fix it.


Thanks in advance.

This doesn't sound related to Vortex. Try disabling any UI mods or if that fails, reinstall the game.
