1. ENB Setup: Install The latest ENB to the Skyrim installation directory.
In short: you just need the d3d9.dll and enbhost.exe from the wrapper directory.
Copy those two files to your skyrim Main Directory

2. Vividian 6.0 Main install:
1. Install The Vividian ENB files with your favorite Mod manager
2. After the installation is completed the installer created a new Directory for you in
your Skyrim/Data folder called "Vividian ENB Install Files"
3. Copy all content from that Folder to your Skyrim Folder.
If you are using Mod Organizer you will find this folder in your:
modorganizer/mods/Vividian ENB - Weather and Lighting Enhancement/ folder

3. Skyrimprefs.ini Please make sure you have all nessesary Skyrim Prefs set correctly in your skyrimprefs.ini
[Display]
bFloatPointRenderTarget=1
bTreesReceiveShadows=1
bDrawLandShadows=1
bShadowsOnGrass=1
fGamma=1.0000
iMultiSample=0 // turns off the game's multi-sampling AA
bTransparencyMultisampling=0 // turns off transparency AA
[Imagespace]
bDoDepthOfField=1
iRadialBlurLevel=1
Also disable Antialiasing and Anisoptric Filtering in your Skyrim prefs that are accessible via the launcher.


...for your OPTIONS. and WEATHERS.

VANILLA USERS:
Please select the Vanilla Weather patch as install option during the install.

CLIMATES OF TAMRIEL USERS: (optional but recommended!)
If you are using Climates of Tamriel please make sure you had it installed at Default values for night and interiors.
Install the COT Weather patch when asked in the Vividian Installer.

Do you want to use the Diverse weathers from our extended weathers?
you will need this Expanded Snow Systems for COT
Optional for Supreme Storms users: Supreme Storms for COT

PURE WEATHER USERS: (optional)
Pure Weathers
Use Main Files and required files and "WEATHER - Pure Weather Edition" in "Special Editions" Folder

RCRN USERS: Realistic Colors Realistic Nights 2.1.4 (optional)
RCRN
1. Install Vividian with the RCRN Option
2. Install RCRN, it will recognise that a enb is installed and will change the enblocal.ini and d3d9.dll files accordingly.

If you installed RCRN before and now want to have a ENB you need to rename the d3d9.dll that comes with RCRN to rcrn_d3d9.dll
Install the enb and edit the enblocal.ini like this:
EnableProxyLibrary=true
InitProxyFunctions=true
ProxyLibrary=RCRN_d3d9.dll

If you are using ELFX:
Disable the Dragonborn DLC plugin of ELFX as well the exterior and enhancer esp's - they are not compatible with RCRN.
Also load ELFX after RCRN.

Mod Organizer users install guide can be found Here

Users of RCRN should set their settings according to this for the best look.
