Problems with SkyUI and the SKSE
I have the 1.8.151 version of the Skyrim script extender, but it is not being recognized by SkyUI. I've tried reinstalling SKSE and reactivating the mod, but it didn't work. I have the mod through Steam. Any suggestions?

Are you running SKSE through its .exe or are you using the regular Skyrim launcher?

If its the later, thats the problem. SKSE has to use its own exe or it won't load.

I have been lauching the game through the skse exe, and it was working fine until a day or two ago, when it said that SkyUI wasn't finding the extender.

Well the other 'obvious' check is then to see if you have SKSE's dll files in the right location (Skyrims root folder, not the data folder like for mods)

Also,Make sure you are launcher the game from the SKSE Loader file in your skyrim directory.

I installed it under steamapps>common>Skyrim. It has the original Skyrim Launcher in it. Is that the root folder? I'm pretty new to modding.

I dont know if this would make a difference but there was just an update for SkyUI.

I'm looking over the installation instructions that came with the SKSE download, and I noticed it said to copy some .pex files into the data>scripts folder. I did not do this when I originally installed the game, but I can't find the scripts folder to put them it. Any chance this will help?

yes thats the right folder , the latest skse is 1.06.05
maybe watch this to make sure your install is correct

and by game, I meant the SKSE, somehow.

I was able to fix it by adding the pex files. Thank you so much for all your suggestions!

you'll need to make the scripts folder if it doesnt already exsist in the data folder , before you get in too deep you might want to watch a couple of the gopher vids and do a little reading in the nexus skyrim wiki , personally i wouldnt install mods from the steam workshop ,but rather from nexus . the steam workshop controlled mods ties your install to them too much ,it adds anouther layer of steam thats really not needed , forcing you to suscribe/unsuscribe to mods ,requires an active online connection to install or remove , with nexus its all done through there manager ,you have alot more control over your game , its easyier to adjust your load order ,and functionality , i bet someone else could explane it alot better that i

SkyUI was causing my game to crash. I uninstalled Skyrim and reintroduced each mod at a time. It was when I was trying to interact with my Fish Hatchery at my Morthal home in Hearthfire. That stinks because I really don't want to play without that mod. If someone wants that save file, just ask.

Does anyone know of any alternative?

I'm actually having a similar problem with my SkyUI. Current version of SkyUI is v3.1 and current build of SKSE is v1.6.6. I believe I have installed SKSE correctly because the GetSKSEVersion console command works. However, SkyUI refuses to recognize it.

I should note that I am trying to use an outside mod manager (Skyrim Mod Organizer) to install SkyUI.
