Creation Kit DLC master file load fix

##Last update was just to update Steam Item image. File has not changed.

That is not me. Kudos go completely to him.

This is not a mod for the game. It is a workaround for the CreationKit. Loading CreationKitDLCfix.esp into skyrim will not work!! That file can be safely deleted or keep it around to update this if it is needed after Dragonborn comes out.

What this does: Enables Creation kit to load multiple master files without crashing. This will stop the Creation Kit from crashing when attempting to load dawnguard or hearthfire to mod.

The file CreationKitDLCfix.bsa in this mod entry is actually the corrected SkyrimEditor.ini file. First, backup your original file. Subscribe to download the corrected file. (you will need to let the skyrim launcher download it). After subscribing and allowing the Skyrim Launcher to download it, you'll find the file in your Steam/SteamApps/ common/Skyrim/Data Directory. Then simply rename CreationKitDLCfix.bsa to SkyrimEditor.ini. Now, open the file and remove any text that occurs before [General], save, and move it to the skyrim root directory. (**\common\Skyrim\). REMEMBER TO BACKUP YOUR ORIGINAL FILE FIRST. Or if you are not comfortable with that, follow the mod screen shots / youtube instructions above to fix the file your self.

*remember to answer yes to all to any warnings that pop up.

I used this on a computer that had windows 7 and it worked perfectly but I have since gotten a computer with windows 8.1 and this is not working for me at all. I was wondering if you could tell me if it's 8.1 causing the issue or possibly something else?

It's ok, I found another way to load the DLCs weeks ago.
