CTD only when using ENB files


I am in the process of installing step, and I have gone through quite a bit of it tonight and I tried to launch the game but I get the Bethesda logo and then it crashes. I played around with this for a while thinking it couldn't be the mods or load order. I kept removing factors until one combination showed the ENB overlay at startup. So I figured maybe it was something with the graphics settings, maybe my .ini files, so I created fresh ini's and still had the issues.


Finally I removed the ENB files from my Skyrim directory. The ENBhost.exe the d3d9.dll and enblocal.ini + enbseries.ini. When these are removed from the directory the game launches fine through Mod Organizer and I can use scripts etc. But if I add them back I get the CTD's again. Thus far I have tried setting back up the Nvidia settings for the game, and recreating the Skyrim.ini/skyrimprefs.ini with no luck. It has to be the enb interactign with one of these ini files but I cannot for the life of me figure out which one it is or which value to change. 


I do not have alot of experience with this or with step at all so I am reaching out hoping someone can help me out. I really appreciate it. Thanks in advance

You sir are a gentleman and a scholar. Thank you so much! It worked!Though I now have somethign across the top in red that says something is enabled in the enb ini file and that graphic modification is disabled. Do i need to change that?

      STEP does not recommend downloading the Skyrim Nexus version of ENBoost due to incorrect settings for STEP.
      Grab the latest binary from ENB Dev: https://enbdev.com/download_mod_tesskyrim.html
      Boris's VRAMSizeTest Tool for ENBoost: https://enbdev.com/download_vramsizetest.html
      For Skyrim run the DX9 version. For Windows 7, subtract 170 from the value the tool gives. For Windows 8/10, subtract 305 from the value the tool gives. Set VideoMemorySizeMb in the "Enblocal.ini" file to the resulting value.

      Looks like Boris has pretty much figured out his memory fix and released it on the nexus. I believe you still need ENB and then the file on the nexus is an extra INI that is dependent on your videocard.
