How do I fix SkyUI error 7?

Published on April 13th, 2022

Skyui Error 7 is an error code that can occur when using the modding tool SKSE64 with the mod Skyrim Special Edition. This error is caused by SKSE64 not being able to find the correct version of the Skyrim Script Extender (SKSE) in the game's data files. This can be caused by either SKSE64 not being installed correctly, or by the game's data files being corrupt.
