Alright, I have spent a few hours trying to fix this problem, looking at other peoples posts who got the same error message and have still been unable to find the problem.  I installed a mod a few days ago and ever since then this error message appears when I load in.  Even after getting rid of that mod it still appears.  I have downloaded a new PapyrusUtil file as well as SKSE and SexLab to no avail.  SexLab is one of the highest priority mods in my lineup so I am unsure if their is a problem there.  I am open to any tips or advice, when it comes to this part of technology I am not very tech savvy.

 

I will upload a screencap of the error message as well as a screencap of my mod load order (or what is visible).

Install PapyrusUtil into your data folder manually instead of NMM to make sure it gets installed, then check and make sure the file in your data folder SKSE/Plugins/StorageUtil.dll is there. There's nothing else really to it, the error can't be a false positive as it's a pretty binary pass/fail, you either have the file and at the correct version, or you don't.
 
If you're positive it's there and the most recent version (3.1 available here: http://www.loverslab...4-papyrusutil/)than goto your My Documents folder and navigate to My Games/skyrim/SKSE/ and post the contents of the file skse.log

SexLab is one of the highest priority mods in my lineup

No, it's not. It's doesn't matter for this particular error,  but SexLab.esm is actually one of your lowest priority mods according to your screenshot. The highest priority is the mod at the bottom of your load order, not the "highest" on the list.

I'm having the same problem. I've followed all your above instructions, and I still get an "X" after StorageUtil.dll in the SexLab Framework MCM menu. Everything else reads "OK."

 

See the attached screenshot of My Games/skyrim/SKSE/.

 

Thank you for being so kind as to address my problem, and thank you for all your hard work.

 

Edit: nevermind. SOS was overwriting SL's StorageUtil.dll. Duh. It's registering with an "OK" in SL's MCM now. Sorry to bother you.

I have the same issue,  even instaling the PapyrusUtil_v32 from LoversLab,  Scholongs doesn't any problem,  only CampFire in my mod affects StorageUtil.dll and jasonutil.pex  but even uninstalling this the error persist,  I guess it is a bug From SexLab framework 1.62

Hmm, I put Sexlab Framework after OSA and SOS and I get the error when I load a previous save, does it mean I should start a new game?

messing with load order then trying to load a save is never a good idea. yes if you plan to move around your load order, be prepaired to make a new game. non-esp mods typically can be moved around in the load order without issue, but if it had an esp and u move it about it can throw a hissy fit and straight die.

 

if u want a better illustration of what im talking about download wryebash and look at the save collum. if its purple ur set, green is good but some minor issues are present could kill the game 40 hours later for example, or could last a good 100 before u ever saw an issue, orange prolly means ur game is guna die a slow lingering death id be suprised if u make it more than 20 hours in orange b4 crashing out, red means ull be lucky to even load into the game. moving one file with an esp from one slot to another in your load order typically will jump u straight from purple to orange if not red. purple to green typically seems to happen when u get an autosave/quicksave corruption. orange and red like i said typically mean u messed up ur load order. now to be fair if its a minor change and skyrim is able to reorder your load order in game and complete a clean save its possible that while u may have loaded a orange save file the next save could be rendered as a purple or even green. i dont fully understand it enough to teach though so ull have to do some research to find the limitation of skyrim and rebuilding the load order in a new save. ill go out on a limb and guess that script heavy mods are a no go to reorder since they may be between drawing from the script when u save and i duno might just cause the whole skyrim universe to burst into flame.

 

one final tip for load order and this certainly isnt any hard rule. i tend to load all my nexus mods first. your frameworks, skse, ui stuff first sense everything plays on those kinda mods. then your nexus mods follower,armor,weapons, w/e. those tend to be fairly stable and if you run into an issues its typically a simple fix. loverslab mods i run last starting with sexlab, arousal, and zaz. loverslab mods tend to argue and bicker over master load order that your going to have to manually fix with tes5edit. also if your going to have a CTD issue, its likely going to be one of those loverslab mods that just wasnt correctly packaged or is conflicting with a nexus mod they never tried before. so add em 1-3 at a time and if u hit an issue stop, remove them, and readd one at a time to find the trouble then find the conflicts and resolve them.

 

best of luck.

Greetings and sorry to dig out this old thread, but I downloaded a few new mods and have now the same error message. I am using Mod Organizer, downloaded the newest PapyrusUtil (3.3), extracted it with MO, ticked it for being active and copied its contents in the Skyrim/Data Folder so the newest StorageUtil.dll is definitely there: storageUtil.png
 
MO says, there are two mods conflicting with PapyrusUtil, namely 0SEX (newest version) and SexLab (which is 1.62 - the newest version). But I did not change these mods in any way. In fact, the new ones I downloaded were the Updates for SD+, Devious Devices Expansion and Deviously Enslaved.
 
I redownloaded SOS just in case.
 
My skse.log says this:

Spoiler

 

And my Load Order is this:

 

Spoiler

 

It would be really great if somebody could help me solve this issue.

Do they all use the same PapyrusUtil if not then that could be the reason. So make sure 0SEX (newest version) and SexLab and anything else you installed all use the same PapyrusUtil as sexlab comes with it's own PapyrusUtil version in the mod never used 0SEX so no clue what is contained in that one.

Thanks for your input. :) How would I make that sure? As I said before: I did not change any of the PapyrusUtil Mods in the first place. Why would that pop up just now?

 

And strangely enough when loading an older save the error message does not pop up. I don't really get it.

Because one of the mod in your list is overriding papyrus util with an older version just download the latest papyrus util and put it lowest in your list and that should solve the older version message from papyrus from happening.

I get that part, but none of the mods I have updated are in any way  related to PapyrusUtil. It is very strange.

 

How can I load PapyrusUtil latest? It does not have an *.esp to load latest and is thus not really in the modlist. And I downloaded the latest version ever of often.

 

Also that does not explain why the error message would not pop up in an older save - loaded with the same mods now that caused the error in the first place. Shouldn't it be a sort of universal thing? That leads me to the conclusion that the save is bonked.

People make the assumption that everyone uses ModOrganizer.  If you are using MO, then you need to move PapyrusUtil in the left hand pane a high priority.  Not sure how the newer NMM handles installation order vs load order, but you just make sure that PapyrusUtil (the individual mod) is installed last.

Thanks for trying to help me. :) That first, I really appreciate that, but when did I make the assumption that everybody uses MO? I simply stated that I do, but before that I had NMM. I don't know about it now, but when I last used it one could also only change the load order of *.esps. I am also aware that MOs shell policy causes some problems, but I don't want to change again. I think it is only natural to ask for help about my current build and there seem to be a lot of MO users around.

 

PapyrusUtil is installed last for what it's worth. That does of course not mean that it is loaded last. To my knowledge one cannot influence when mods that are not really mods are loaded in MO. Maybe one can meanwhile in NMM, but I wouldn't be aware of that.

 

If you cannot help me with that program that is totally fine. I am still grateful for your effort. Maybe somebody else has figured out how to deal with MO in this situation and how to tell it which mod should prevail if there are conflicts.

 

Or I ignore the error, because as I said - on older saves the message does not appear. And I have lots of them to fall back.

Wasn't talking about you.  D_Man said:

- THIS is the assumption that you had MO.  And this is the what my comment about people assuming everyone has MO was referring to.  And then you responded:

Which gives the impression that either you don't have MO, or you are using MO but have no clue how it works.  Either way, my answer is correct.  INSTALL THE SEPARATE PapyrusUtil MOD LAST.  In other words, in whatever mod manager you are using, install it last and let it overwrite.  In Mod Organizer, you can handle this by moving the PapyrusUtil mod in the left pane as a higher priority than other mods (and you can check to see any conflicts and make sure nothing overwrites it).  As for NMM, I haven't used NMM since NMM went the profile route, so I don't know how it currently handles install order vs load order (the esp order).  But in the old version of NMM, all you had to do was install it LAST and let it overwrite all.  So again, install it last.

 

As far as why it "suddenly" started doing what you are seeing, I don't know.

No, I am using MO alright, as stated in my first post in the topic, so D_Man did not assume anything. :)

 

Saying I have "no clue how it works" is a bit strong isn't it? ;) I was indeed not aware that one could also shift around the load order in the left pane, but that doesn't mean that I cannot use the program. Normally I get my problems solved on my own.

 

Long story short I did everything you said - about installing it last. That was the first thing I did before posting in this thread. Did not help then.

 

What I did in the meantime, was deleting all StorageUtil.dll files from mods that use this file, too - MO kindly gives you this info. That solved the problem also for the time being - and removed the error message lastly from the save it started to turn up.

 

Thanks for your help, tho. I learned something new.
