How to fix SE Error 193 in Skyrim?

Issue: Hello. After I downloaded some mods for Skyrim I cannot launch the game. I keep getting an SE Error 193. What should I do?

Solved Answer

Skyrim is a computer game released in 2011. Despite that, it still has a very active community and is loved for its action, role-playing, and most importantly, modding[1] abilities. Skyrim is one of the most modded games and that is what keeps users interested 10 years later. Mods allow users to add functions that are unavailable in the original game, change characters, or even improve graphics. Mods have become an increasingly important factor in the success of Skyrim, as they provide the ability for self-expression.

However, not everyone has a smooth experience with third-party mods. As they manipulate the original game, some errors are inevitable. Users report receiving SE Error 193 after installing some mods. It prevents them from playing the game. The full message says:

Last time you ran the game, one or more script extender plugins failed to load. This normally happens when you try to load mods that are not compatible with the script extender. To fix this problem you can check for an update on the mod page or disable the mod until it is updated.

Error(s) reported: StorageUtil.dll (Campfire – Complete Camping System 1.11): not a valid dll (code 193)

However, some users claim that they have updated their mods or tried to disable them but the error still appears. We previously wrote about SKYUI error code 1 in Skyrim which is also related to modding. Error 193 can appear for many different reasons but the main one seems to be that users install mods that are incompatible. For example, mods made for the base 32-bit version of Skyrim will not work with the 64-bit Skyrim SE.[2]

Protect your online privacy with a VPN client

A VPN is crucial when it comes to user privacy.

Even if you apply the most secure settings via your web browser, you can still be tracked via apps that are connected to the internet. Besides, privacy-focused browsers like Tor is are not an optimal choice due to diminished connection speeds. The best solution for your ultimate privacy is Private Internet Access – be anonymous and secure online.
