Skyrim crashing to desktop is the most common crash and there are many different reasons for it i know.
I play skyrim using a mod called Skyrim Redone, an overhaul of the game. When trying to update skyrim and add dawnguard, I cant load the specific save file that I use, but can load my old character from 6 months ago and create new games. I dont want to do that.
I deleted skyrim, completely and re installed. I installed dawnguard and the update as well. I deleted all my mods. I also tried to open it with the new version of Skyre for dawnguard. Yet I cant open the character I want but can still create others.
