So I keep trying to manually deploy my mods for Skyrim Special Edition due to the fact that it isn't doing it automatically.... When I click on deploy as shown in picture A. I get notified that I need to select a deployment method first. 

(Warning: Picture is HUGE as I don't know how to reduce its size properly)
Picture A:



Once I click on 'fix' it takes me to the screen in picture B.


Picture B:



As you can see, the staging folder works fine, but I am unable to click the apply button in the deployment method area: The only deployment method it will allow me to select is "Move deployment (Experimental!)


And if you thought this was the only issue I have found, sit tight, it gets worse:


I also have clicked on the mods button in the game menu which I have found out too late that this is a BIG NO-NO if I want to properly install mods. Plus before I found this out I installed SkyUI by dropping it in the data folder which, as it turns out, is also a big no no. And When I played the game, I have to enable it each launch in order for it to load (or so I thought). It turns out that Skyui wasn't actually active because the game menus remained unchanged in appearance. So I downloaded it again via vortex. and launched the game again and got the 'menu is incompatible' error message. 


So I am not sure how I'm suppose to uninstall and reinstall SKSE and SkyUI if I had already put previous versions of them into the Data folder.



Can someone help me sort out this mess?

Your Mod Staging Folder needs to be on the same drive as your game

If your game IS on the F:\ Drive, along with your Mod Staging Folder, then the next thing you should do is check if your F:\ drive is NTFS, if it's FAT32 then Hardlink and Symlink aren't supported
