Cant install skyrim creation kit
I get an update error, googled it everywhere, nothing works.

So how do you install it?

Couldn't find it on here so made a new thread.

Ok. Well thanks for all the help. Wonderful community here.

One would think Steam and Beth would make something that actually works.

Well thanks anyway. I decided to pirate a copy instead. At least that works around here. Pirating, gods gift to mankind.

It would've been more helpful had you told us what your error message said =/

It should self install from: Library-> Tools -> Creation Kit.

But it's a moot point since you found a copy elsewhere.

Good luck with your modding :D

I get an error message when installing it to update it from Steam. It installs, then says update, but when I update it wont do anything, I get an error message. As I said, ''can't install Skyrim creation kit''.

Can't install Skyrim, or can't install Creation kit? The thread implies the Creation Kit, your last post implies Skyrim.

Anywho, the Creation Kit shouldn't need to update, which is odd. This may be why nobody could help, since I don't recall ever seeing this =/

If you're talking about Skyrim not being able to update, then that seems like just a Steam problem =/ Those are finicky beasts XD Often they right themselves after enough time passes. *shrug*

Some general suggestions - which probably wouldn't work but are worth trying - is to verify the game cache of anything that's bugging out. (As well as reinstalls.)

It was creation kit, typo, my bad. Won't install. And yeah, some update to it is required, but won't install. Creation kit won't start with out it. Don't ask me, I can install anything else from here but that. Not the first person to have this problem after googling it either.

Don't know how to help ; ; sorry
TMAN 1 Mar 23, 2014 @ 12:51am 
Yeah, well, no worries. Pirating seems the way to go with some things. At least that works. Rather have it from here, but hey, what can one do? I reached my limit with this after 3 days of trying and googling.

If you have Skyrim installed, creation kit should be there under ''chivalry'' something or other. But it's there.

Having the exact same issue. Verified integrity, uninstalled CK and reinstalled, and every time that I click "play" nothing happens to load the creation kit. I am unsure what is going on with the downloads but wanted to try my hand at tweaking some of the other mods which aren't working to my specs but now it seems CK won't start. Just wanted to clue others in on this issue as well.

If anyone does have some suggestions on how to get a working copy of the CK I would greatly appreciate it.
