SKSE64_Loader won't start the game



  • For some reason when I try to boot my game (which worked fine a minute ago), I get the following instead (also see image below):

    SHGetFolderPath 00000005 failed (result = 80070005 lasterr = 00000005)

    Assertion failed in E: \github\common\common\IDebugLog.cpp (64): SUCCEEDED(err) (code - FFFFFFFF80070005 (-2147024891))

    Can anyone tell me why this is happening, and/or what this means and (hopefully) how to fix it?

    What I have tried so far:

    • Checked the firewall and the antivirus software.
    • Run as admin.
    • Re-installed everything around 4 times, including the game and SKSE64.
    • Checked mod conflicts.
    • Disabled controlled folder access.

    PS when it started acting up, I had just wiped my keyboard real quick and I hit a couple of buttons and then the black screen came up and now it won't work.

  • This might indicate that the SKSE Loader does not or no longer has access to folders where it needs to write files (like E:\github\common\common\).

    Look for 'Controlled Folder Access' under Start (by opening the Start menu and typing in the words). Either turn it off, or give skse64_loader.exe full access by using the 'Allow an app through controlled folder access' option:

    What could have caused this is a silent update of Microsoft Defender.
