Hi so I'm really new to modding. I've used the Creation Kit a little bit a few months back and even created my own really simple mod for personal use but have since then deleted and not touched the CK until now.

 

I re-installed it through Steam and it downloaded perfectly without any problems. I can start it up and it works fine. I click "File" then "Data" to load my stuff. I double click another mod's .esp file (Lustmord Vampire Armor by AmethystDeceiver http://www.nexusmods...im/mods/25852/?) to mark it with an X. Then I set it as the active file. Its master files are "Skyrim.esm", "Update.esm" and "Dawnguard.esm" so I know those will load as well (and I've tried it again actually double clicking all those files to make sure they load). Then I click "Ok" and it starts to load. The first dialog box that comes up says:

 

"Assert

 

File: C:\_Skyrim\Code\TESV\TES Shared\misc\BGSLocalizedString.cpp

Line: 2871

 

LOCALIZATION: Error opening or reading strings file."

 

[Abort] [Retry] [Ignore]

 

I know a lot of these come up sometimes so I just click "Ignore" and continue on.

The next thing I see pop up is:

 

"MASTERFILE: LOCALIZATION: Zero entries or empty block size read from strings file STRINGS?Dawnguard_ENGLISH.STRINGS. Strings will be missing.

 

"Yes to all" will disable all Warnings for this context."

 

[Yes] [No] [Yes to all]

 

I click "Yes to all" but regardless of what I choose, the next box that pops up is from Windows and tells me:

 

"Creation Kit has stropped working

 

Windows can check online for a solution to the problem."

 

[Check online for a solition and close the program]

[Close the program]

 

Having worked with the Creation Kit before, I know it's probably still working, just not responding and you have to give it time and it will start responding again and you can continue using it. But Windows won't let it finish because it recognizes it as "not responding" and whatever option I click, Windows quits the program.

 

I have tried verifying its integrity on Steam: it's valid.

I've tried running it as administrator from my desktop: same thing happens.

I've tried running it directly from Steam: same thing happens.

I don't think it's a problem with the CK; I think it's the fact that Windows jumps in to close it down. How do I stop Windows from doing that?

Read and follow the "Additional one time step" in the following tutorial

http://www.creationk...ds_in_a_new_ESP

 

In essence what those steps do is allow you to load more that one master file.  By default the CK will only load Skyrim.esm and Update.esm as masterfiles.  Since the mod you want to work on has Dawnguard.esm as a master file, you have to instruct the CK to load it as well.

Thank you so much! This solved it.

 i realize this post is quite old but i am having the exact same problem. However when i click the link provided it takes me to the landing page where it asks me to choose which game i have (fallout or skyrim) to then provide me with the wiki with multiple ways to go.

Unfortunately, they cleaned up the Creation Kit wiki site and removed many of the tutorials. This was one tutorial that got cut. So even if you did get to the tutorial page, it isn't there any longer.

 

Perhaps some information in this thread may be of assistance: https://forums.nexus...n-creation-kit/
