1. Download the latest v0279 binaries or higher from enbdev.com
2. Open the "Wrapper" folder included. Copy & Paste only the d3d9.dll and enbhost into your main Skyrim folder as shown below:



3. Download one of the presets from the files section of my mod page. There are 3 versions of the preset and you only select one of them. Select the option that suits your game by reading the description of each version. For example, if you use the lighting mod ELFX, pick that version, if not, pick Vanilla lighting, etc. 

Once downloaded, copy & paste only the "enbseries" folder, enblocal, and enbseries files into your main Skryim folder as shown below:



4. Open up the enblocal file as a txt. and adjust the videomemorysize= under [Memory]. There are a few ways to configure this and I highly recommend watching my Tutorial video to properly set this up. For 32 bit OS users with less than 8GB of RAM, use this formula [VRAM + SYSTEM RAM] - [2048]
or
For 64-bit, If you have 8GB RAM or more, use this formula [Total Available Graphics Memory] - [170] for Windows 7 users
For 64-bit, If you have 8GB RAM or more, use this formula [Total Available Graphics Memory] - [350] for Windows 8/10 users

To figure out your Total Available Graphics Memory, use quick guide that takes less than a minute.

 There is also an autodetect setting in here as well if you are really unsure how to do this, which is the easiest way but not recommended.
Watch my tutorial video or check out the S.T.E.P. Wiki on ENBoost for more information.

5. If you want the custom ENB Snow FX as seen in the videos and screenshots, now is the time to download the optional ENB Data files from the files section of the mod page. This is Nexus Mod Manager compatible for simple installation. It contains a single ESP you can activate for Mindflux's amazing falling snow FX to work. 

6. Make the following adjustments in your Skyrim pref inis: (You can find this under Documents/Games/Skyrim) 
If these values are not there, you can write them in yourself as long as they are under the [Display] section.

[Display]
------------------------------------
bFloatPointRenderTarget=1
bShadowsOnGrass=1
bTreesReceiveShadows=1
bDrawShadows=1

7. Turn off hardware anti-aliasing & anisotropic filtering. ENB handles both of these.
You can also do this in the Skyrim Launcher OR the Skyrim Pref files as well (recommended)
You are better off doing them while you are in the Skyrim Pref inis anyway.

[Display]
-----------------------------------

      iMultisample=0       (Antialiasing)
                    iMaxAnisotropy=0   (Anisotropic Filtering)



8. Launch the game and enjoy. I'd love to see your lovely screenshots :).
