I ran DynDOLOD several months ago when I had Skyrim installed on a standalone SSD for games (F:). Everything worked fine the first time I did this. I've now installed a much larger SSD, moved Windows and moved my games to it. So Skyrim is installed to C: now (at C:\Steam\steamapps\common\Skyrim). I'm trying to update DynDOLOD because I changed one of the mods DynDOLOD.esp made a master, but texgen and dyndolod both keep trying to read from the old file path for Skyrim and I can't find where it's saving this old information to change or delete it. DynDOLOD_settings.ini doesn't have any file paths listed in it.
 
It shows me this and stops.

Start the games launcher SkyrimLauncher.exe once, so it updates the path info in the Windows registry.

Well there it is. I thought Steam took care of that already since everything else has been working fine. Thanks.

Hey ! So I have the exact same issue, except starting the game launcher SkyrimLauncher.exe doesn't solve it for me... TexGen and Dyndolod still try to read from wrong path.

 

I have the same exact error message than the author.

 

And my game is in D:/

 

How could I change the path ?

You obviously do not have the same issue or the same solution would apply. Maybe post the log and what you did.

I also seem to have the same issue. Opening skyrim launcher didnt fix it. My actual skyrim install is  "C:\Users\ulfss\Documents\SteamLibrary\SteamApps\common\Skyrim".

I also seem to have the same issue. Opening skyrim launcher didnt fix it. My actual skyrim install is  "C:\Users\ulfss\Documents\SteamLibrary\SteamApps\common\Skyrim".

Here's my log:

I can not begin to imagine all  the errors and issues caused by executing programs from the documents folder. Why would you do that to yourself? So if there are file access/writing issue that would be the first to check.

 

Be that as it may. xEdit and consequently DynDOLOD, which is a modified xEdit, read the Bethesda entry in the Windows Registry for the game path. That path is obviously set to c:\program files (x86)\steam\steamapps\common\Skyrim\Data\

 

If the starting the launcher is not updating the Windows Registry it might be because the OS, UAC or anti virus are preventing the launcher from accessing the Windows Registry. It might have to with the fact that the Documents folder is supposed to hold data and not programs.

Thanks, I did another complete reinstall (third times the charm) of ultimate skyrim and now i'm on the DynDOLOD part again. Now my skyrim install is "C:\Games\SteamApps\common\Skyrim" and DynDOLOD is "C:\Games\SteamApps\common\Skyrim\Utilities\DynDOLOD". My ultimate skyrim install is "C:\Games\US\Ultimate Skyrim 4.0.3".

 

and yet still the same issue. "Error: Can not find DynDOLOD Resources core files required to create improved LOD.  RTFM DynDOLOD_Manual.html requirements section.  Verify the core files from DynDOLOD Resources archive has been installed completly.  Verify the game is starting in the desired game mode. Current mode: TES5 Current Data path C:\Games\SteamApps\common\Skyrim\Data\"

 

Heres another log:

Nevermind i fixed it, Mod Organizer was still using the old setup. Thanks for your patience. I had to edit the paths of managed game in mod organizer as well as for Skyrim and Skyrim launcher there as well.

To avoid problems I suggest to follow the installation instructions in the manual:

 

From the DynDOLOD Standalone archive copy the content of the 'DynDOLOD' folder, which contains the files TexGen.exe/TexGenx64.exe, TexGen.exe/TexGenx64.exe, DynDOLOD_QuickStart.html and the sub folders 'Docs' and 'Edit Scripts' with all their content into a new 'DynDOLOD' folder outside of special OS folders like 'Programs Files' or 'Program Files (x86)', the SteamApps or game folders and Mod Organizers virtual file structure. Do not mix with old versions or xEdit installation.
