Steam Error 16 when subscribing to "larger?" mods
"Failed to download a subscribed file! Steam error 16"

Hi!
I have recently encounterd this error code when im trying to download mods through the steam workshop. I recive the message after it gets stuck at "downloading mod" for a min or so, "Steam error 16".

I have searched through forums and the discussion groups related to this, but I have noticed that smaller mods that only changes names etc works fine, but I get error 16 when trying to download "larger" mods that content like major graphics or adding large amount of new content.

I have erased and uninstalled whole steam and steam related files and redownloaded Steam + the game before trying this out, I was able to get 12 "smaller" mods but at the 13e ("Pure Waters") it got stuck and the error code showed up. I have also tried several other graphic mods and they all gets stuck.

I have followed all the paths to solve the problem I know about after reading all the posts about this but none mention that it only appears when encountering "larger" mods, so I hope someone here might have an solution! :)
Best regards!

FIX: go to skyrim nexus, get their modmanager and download your mods there...

Thanks for the links :D
(Same problem here. Need to learn to build a post-install so the mods can install themselves xD)
