Steam Error : 15
Everytime i start Skyrim (LegendaryEdition) it comes with this pop-up Error:15

"Failed to get details for a subscribed fill ! Steam Error 15" ... that is the text popup.

I push "OK" to close the popup and start the game normaly.

The thing is, i have no Mod (unsubscribet and deleted them all).

Another problem ...
Where are my xyz.esm ?
I miss :
The only thing i see on the screen are those :
HDTexture.esm (1, 2, 3)

What to do ?
Thanks in advance.

Now i'm verry disapointed.
I uninstalled/deleted all Skyrim data, from all my hard drives.
I reinstalled Skyrim (LegendaryEdition) from CD.
Same problem occure ... noting works, now i even cannot play the game, it just loop on the start screen.
When i push "start" it ask me if i want to play it, when i say yes it comes again to the start screen ... lol.
With the Creation Kit the same problem, cannot start it becouse of "missing" files ... i have all files in the right directory, what the hell do the CK want more ?

I played over 200 hours with the first Skyrim CD i bought at the release of the game.
At that time i had another PC with Win-32bit and only one hard drive C: where my game was on (under Steam of course).
Now i have another PC with Win7-64bit and i have more hard drives so i have C: for the important things (system and so on) and E: for the games and Steam to.
I bought another Skyrim CD, the Legendary Edition, that contains also all DLCs (Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn).

Now i thought it will work, with a new installation of the game ... but it doesn't.
All other games run perfectly.

Try the following.
- Exit Steam
- Go to your Steam folder, usually under C:\Program Files (x86)
- Remove folder named appcache
- Close your computer

- Start the computer
- Start Steam. It will now load a bit, while building a new appcache folder
- From Steam client Library view, select "All games" and right click this game.
- Select Properties -> Local Files -> Verify Integrity of Game Cache.

- From Steam client Library view, select "Tools" and right click Creation Kit
- Select Properties > Local Files > Verify Integrity of Toll Cache.

*1 file will always fail to validate. It is related to how Steam detects your graphic card configurations and does not any effect to your game.

Ok, with all your help here on the forum, i managed to run the CreationKit and now it works.
It works while i did what you all recomand me and i installed Skyrim in english.
Becouse everytime i installed Skyrim in german the CK do not work.

The problem with Skyrim is still a nightmare.
I still have this damn "Error 15", i still cannot start the game.
I have no Mods and no other program like Nexus or what else.
In my load data folder i have only those HDTexture_1/2/3.esm DLC.
No Master.esm, no Update.esm, no Dawnguard.esm/Hearthfire.esm/Dragonborn.esm ... all those .esm should have been there becouse the Skyrim_LegendaryEdition comes with all in one.

If i go to the "shop" i can select the DLCs but when i click them it doesnt tell me that i allready have those ... like with other games i have, where i get a message that i allready have specific DLCs.

You could have set the Creation Kit to German as well.

Right click on Skyrim in your Library and look under the tab of DLCs under properties. Are they active ?

CK cannot run in german, at least not any more.
In my Library under Skyrim DLC tab i have only the HDTexture_DLC, nothing else.

I think there is a problem between Steam, Skyrim_LegendaryEdition and my PC.
Becouse all other games are running werry well, only this damn game does not.

Some mounths ago i had another PC where i had only one hard disc C: and the running software was Win-32bit, where my Steam was there and the game vanilla_Skyrim (original CD also).
Now i have another PC with Win7-64bit and Steam is on E:\Steam\ ... , not on C:\ProgramFiles(86)\Steam\ ...
I played Skyrim before and i had it in german and also CK was in german and all was ok.
After buying the Skyrim-LegendaryEdition CD and install it the problems start.

When i first installed the vanillaSkyrim, it asked me for a Key and i wrote it down.
Now, after i installed Skyrim_LegendaryEdition (from CD) it didnt ask me for a new Key (that i have on the Box).

Dont know what to uinstall and delete more than i did and reinstall more than i have ...

Go to games, and press activate steam product. It will ask for your key then.
Apparently when going form Skyrim to Legendary Skyrim you have to do it yourself. It will not ask for the code by itself.

OK ... some good news.
After i activate the product, now i have all DLCs active.
The fu** "Error 15" is gone/disapeared.

The bad news ... i still cannot start the game.

Unofficial Skyrim Patch.esp
Unofficial Dawnguard Patch.esp
Unofficial Hearthfire Patch.esp
Unofficial Dragonborn Patch.esp
[Your other ESM files]
Unofficial High Resolution Patch.esp
[The rest of your mods]

............................. 02.esp

Thats all i have.
Grathagis Aug 9, 2014 @ 8:01am 
Getting the patches is always a good idea:
Unofficial Skyrim Patch by Unofficial Patch Project Team

Also make sure they are loaded before you press play. At the bottom of the launcher it will say something like Completely Synchronized

Ok, now i d/l Nexus, SKSE and LOOT ... the game run perfect, but only when i click on the SKSE_Skyrim.
If i try to start the game from Steam_Library_Skyrim then it loops and cannot be started.

Now another problem :
Again i cannot start the CreationKit, becouse it tells me that i have to many Master_files.
What to do to get the CK to run again ?
Grathagis Aug 10, 2014 @ 6:47am 
Add these lines to your SkyrimEditor.ini


SResourceArchiveList2=Skyrim - Shaders.bsa, Update.bsa, dawnguard.bsa, hearthfires.bsa, dragonborn.bsa

Well, i think i give up with the CK ...
I will use the TES5Edit, its easy and it function w/out problems.

Thank you all for your help.
