Hey...It seems I ran into an issue that's driving me up the walls, with SKSE. I've been following the STEP guide(STEP_v2-1-1b-11-2-1-1b) to the letter, modding Skyrim. Initially, I installed the latest version of SKSE ( Current release build (1.5.9, compatible with runtime 1.6.89.0 on 05 June 2012): http://skse.silverlo...skse_1_05_09.7z) for my 1.6 version of Steam Skyrim. When I finally finish modding, after 2 days, SKSE throws me an error, saying "your game is not supported". Now, had I installed an outdated version of SKSE, this would be self explanatory, but it says black and white that the version I downloaded should be compatible. I've modded SKyrim successfully once before, and got compromised because of an update later on. I'm not a stranger to following instructions, and this issue is just screaming stupid in my face - having fine combed every action from start to finish, I can't find anything wrong - this just shouldn't be happening at all... I've tried some suggested solutions, like deleting skyboost and/or script dragon files as a last resort...nothing works...The correct version of SKSE just pops errors every time. I can't even begin to explain why this issue even came up...has anyone ever had this happen or maybe has an idea what could have happened. I've set up Skyrim unplugged (http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/12744) before I did anything else, to avoid getting compromised by Steam, again... I only played Skyrim once a few months back for a few weeks, and ever since Steam destroyed my installation, I could not, for the life of me, complete an other STEP modding - it's gdamn impossible - and, at this point, it's seriously frustrating enough to make me wanna trash bin Skyrim on the whole...(sorry for the rant...this is just beyond unbelievable...I'm not new to this...I've been modding every game I own since I started gaming in 2003 - I can't picture what messed up)

Hmm, are you sure you're not registered for Beta updates for Skyrim? To make sure you're still on v1.6, right click TESV.exe -> Properties -> Details -> Product version. If it says 1.7.7.0 then you need to either install the v1.7 compatible SKSE (I've seen virtually no problems with 1.7 so far, it's fairly stable), or revert the game to v1.6 and lock it there.

To unsubscribe from the beta in Steam go to Steam -> Settings -> Beta Participation -> Change -> and select "NONE - Opt out of all beta programs". The game should then revert to v1.6 (check TESV.exe's properties). Next download stoppingby4now's Skyrim Unplugged app and follow it's directions to block Steam from forcing updates.

Thanks for the reply...I've double checked whether Skyrim got updated to 1.7 somehow, but it didn't it seems. As I've read on Steam news, you'd still have to sign up manually for 1.7 as it's still a beta at this point. And my Skyrim in steamapps, common and in Documents was completely wiped before reinstalling and starting to mod. This time around, I've used skyrim unplugged aswell right after vanilla was up at 1.6, validated and defragged. Right now, I'm scrambling to figure out what went wrong..I'd start again, but it's a 2 day process to install everything, I really wanna get to the bottom of this first. Could it be an outdated mod causing this issue.. It wouldn't make sense, but still..Nothing modifies the launcher or the exe itself.

what're your computer date settings and everything? have you manipulated them? i dunno what's causing your problem but try to de- and reinstall different versions of skse. also be sure to delete every loose file in your data folder. for checking, backup your skyrim folder and delete all the non-vanilla files, or everything except the skyrim bsa-archives and validate. then install skse (the correct version) and see whether it works or not. also don't forget to backup and delete your inis so they can be created anew. are you using enb, rcrn, or any other patchers/plugins?

If it helps, there's a guide on our wiki to get a completely vanilla installation without re-downloading the game: Link

Thanks ;) Restored my archived vanilla the other day - gonna give modding an other shot after I get back from vacation in 2weeks...maybe the next vs of the Step guide will be out by then, and Cliffworms will have sorted out the issues with sounds of skyrim.

I wouldn't count on the former but have fun!

Sorry for necroing this thread I made some weeks ago, but I figured out the issues I posted about. Maybe someone can avoid heartache in the future. It appears that my game failed to launch(saying the version is not supported) because of an optional feature of this mod Better Turn Animation Only One Pose http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/8080 The optional download Optional Martial Arts apparently corrupts something that causes that launch error. Apparently, a user mentioned in the comments section that they had tracked that error to that particular modification. Installing Only the Main files and the Updates will save you a lot of trouble. *Note* Now, I can't tell with 100% certainty that this is indeed the cause(no offense to the author or anyone) but after looking for the cause and stumbling across the only mod that has been tagged by an other user who had the same issue, I'm, fairly certain that that's got something to do with it...maybe more experienced people can do a proper testing.
