Lockpicking won't increase
For some reason when I successfuly unlock a lock I gain no experience. I do gain experience from breaking picks though. Anyone know of a solution or a mod that patches this?
EDIT (1/31/15): Breaking the picks will give me XP, but actually unlocking the lock will not grant any XP. My game did fix this glitch at one point to where I could level up by unlocking, however I am having this problem again. Is there some mod that fixes this or any general workaround?
I also have all the DLC installed.

You probably do and miss it. I get that a lot. Either that or your skill is so high that picks don't work as well. What is your skill at?

I think I am between level 50-60, and it is not that I miss seeing the experience. Read some post of other people having this problem but couldn't find a solution.

Sorry for reviving my old thread but I am still having problems with this dang lockpicking glitch. Breaking the picks will give me XP, but actually unlocking the lock will not grant any XP. My game did fix this glitch at one point to where I could level up by unlocking, however I am having this problem again. Is there some mod that fixes this or any general workaround?

Concidering the time between your posts and the fact that nobody has answered I would assume that the problem can't be solved. Do you have the Unbreakable Perk from the lockpicking tree?

Also do you have or have you used any Lockpicking mods?

I haven't unlocked any perks and haven't used any mods for lockpicking.

Have you checked the wiki or googled the problem under Skyrim: Lockpicking? Sometimes they list bugs/glitches and thier solutions.

From the UESP Wiki: In the Thieves Guild Headquarters, you can find a training room that contains a series of locked chests of different difficulty level. While all but the novice-level one will reset, they are subject to the same restrictions as other chests and your Lockpicking skill will not increase by re-picking them except for the small amount gained through any broken lockpicks.

It could have something to do with the script related to this somehow being corrupted or maybe overriding the normal lockpicking script.

You know that could very well be it. If it is just some script I would assume that could be relatively easily fixed with a mod (or maybe even console commands) I will try the Unofficial Skyrim Patch and see if it fixes it. Thanks for the help.

I just installed the unofficial patch and it seemed to fix it. Thanks for the help.
