hi there, ive just come back to modding skyrim and have recently switched from NNM to MO2, however when installing SKSE i moved the rar files (excluding the data folder) into the game folder (which is outside program files and program files x86) even steam itself is downloaded into its own folder, i should mention this is still in my C drive as i dont have any other drive at the moment, the files went into the folder but when dragging SKSE into MO2 i get an alert saying 'the contents of <data> does not look valid',then before downloading it a pop up .......well popped up saying 'this mod was probably not set up correctly, most likely it will not work, you should first correct the directory layout using the content tree', as an amateur with this manager i have no idea what ive done wrong, i ignored this even though it was slightly different to the tutorial i was using to get used to MO2 but i brushed it off since i did exactly as they did on every step from completely reinstalling skyrim and starting off fresh, after downloading it and installing it another alert poped up saying 'data is missing, use query info' so i did and noticed small red X appeared next to the mod saying 'no valid game data' yet the download in the downloads tab is telling me theres game files present
my game is a legal copy bought only a few months ago via steam, and the SKSE version is up to date as i redownloaded it just the other day, with no other SKSE files on the site for SE i assumed they wouldve kept up to date with that
any help around this?
for additional info im using the AI cave tutorial so you can see exactly what ive done
