How to run java based Dual Sheath Redux patcher in Vortex? Vortex is saying that I don't have java installed, but I know I have. The patcher runs outside of Vortex but unfortunately it thinks that the Skyrim.esm and update.esm are missing so I have to run it in the manager. Any help?

Sorry I've completely missed the FAQ. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction. That said, it unfortunately doesn't seem to help but I'm probably just doing something wrong.

I've added a new tool called Dual Sheath Redux Patcher

Target is the folder where java is installed, just like the guide told me to. Should I point to other exe when using win64

C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_181\bin\java.exe

Command line is

-jar D:\Games\Vortex Mod Installations\skyrimse\Mods\Dual Sheath Redux-34155-1-7-3\SkyProc Patchers\Dual Sheath Redux Patch\Dual Sheath Redux Patch.jar

Start in

C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_181\bin

So I guess it should be setup properly, but the patcher doesn't run. Does it matter that it is not on the same drive? Should I write something into the environment variables?

I've found out what I've been doing wrong. I've forgot/didn't know I have to use quotation marks in the command line. I'm never using command prompt so I had no idea. Maybe it could be added into the FAQ for noobs like me.

Instead of -jar c:\path\to\your\java\based\tool\tool.jar  there could be -jar "c:\path\to\your\java\based\tool\tool.jar" To make it clearer for people with no experience Which would save me some time. haha

The command should be

-jar "D:\Games\Vortex Mod Installations\skyrimse\Mods\Dual Sheath Redux-34155-1-7-3\SkyProc Patchers\Dual Sheath Redux Patch\Dual Sheath Redux Patch.jar"


Now the patcher window at least appears. Too bad it doesn't work.

Now when I run the patcher, the window saying "This patcher requires the following mods, please add them to your load order: Dual Sheath Redux.esp" appears. Well the  esp actually IS active in my load order.

When I click "OK" I can see another window saying "The application couldn't open the save file output stream. Your settings were not saved." And that's it.

I would change "Start in" to the game directory. At least worth a try. Everything else looks good to me.

Thanks! It does seem to help. The patch is running now! And to my surprise it didn't get stuck.

The Start in for my particular configuration in case anyone else would be trying to fix it is

D:\Games\Steam\steamapps\common\Skyrim Special Edition\Data\SkyProc Patchers\Dual Sheath Redux Patch

Now just deploy mods, apply changes, and then finally try to start the game to see if or more likely how much crashing I've caused.

It really works!
