SkyUI - Troubleshooting
By snakster and 1 collaborators
Lists potential problems you may run into when using SkyUI and their solutions.
General issues
There are mods missing from the MCM list.

In general, it may take several seconds until all mods have registered at MCM, especially when starting a new game. If there are still mods missing, try running the repair script. Open the console and enter:
setStage SKI_ConfigManagerInstance 1
You may have to wait a few seconds for the configuration manager system to re-initialize.
There are dollar signs ($) in front of all words in the main menu and other places.

You may have accidentally deleted Data/Interface/Translate_<language>.txt.
To restore it, use Steam to verify the integrity of Skyrim's game-cache:
Steam → Library → Properties of Skyrim → Local files tab → Verify integrity of game cache.
There's an error message, reporting "SKYUI ERROR CODE X ...".

Follow the steps below for the corresponding error code.
Specific error codes
Error Code 1: The Skyrim Script Extender (SKSE) is not running...
Error Code 2: SKSE is outdated...
Error Code 3: SKSE scripts are outdated...

Different error causes, but the solution is the same: Install or re-install SKSE, either from, or directly from Steam.
Error Code 4: Your Papyrus INI settings are invalid...

One, or more, of your Papyrus INI variables are set to invalid values. There are several tweaking guides and INI generators out there that propagate setting these to out-of-range values. As a result, SkyUI or other event-based mods can start behaving erratically.

To fix this, open My Documents/My Games/Skyrim/Skyrim.ini with a text editor and reset the following values to their respective defaults
[Papyrus] iMinMemoryPageSize=128 iMaxMemoryPageSize=512 iMaxAllocatedMemoryBytes=76800
You may also have to reset these values in SkyrimCustom.ini, if it exists, which is in the same directory.
For details on the meaning of these settings, see

Also, in case you think you know better: See these recommendations from a developer who implemented Papyrus.[]
Error Code 5: Incompatible menu file...

There's another mod that overrides a particular menu file SkyUI is using as well. You'll have to pick one of the two mods. If you want another mod to be able to override certain menu files of SkyUI while keeping the rest, you can disable these warning messages individually in the SkyUI configuration menu (Advanced page).
Error Code 6: Menu file version mismatch...

The versions of SkyUI scripts and interface files are not matching. This could happen if you manually extracted the SkyUI.bsa archive. Remove any loose SkyUI files from your data folder.
Error Code 7: SKSE scripts have been overwritten...

Either your SKSE scripts have actually been overwritten, then just re-install SKSE (see Error Code 1). Or, if that doesn't fix it, there's an INI setting that stops SKSE and mods in general from functioning. For some reason it may have been set. Verify the following INI setting is set to 1, not 0:
[Archive] bInvalidateOlderFiles=1

Hi I have a brand new laptop with Windows 10 OS and I am having a hard time putting this mod on my Skyrim.
I purchased the Skyrim Remastered but realized it wouldn't allow my favourite mods. I purchased the regular Skyrim with its DLC and still I am having a hard time. Ive downloaded your mod before, twice now but on different OSs... is there a problem with compatibility with Windows 10 or am I missing something? I have Skript Extender running. Its the next step that is causing issues. Keeps saying I need an app to opn nxm and then there are no apps to find in the store.... help please?
