Wrye Bash is the most powerful mod-management utility available for Elder Scrolls IV. Use it to fine-tune your load order, manage saves, install mods and more.

If you've already installed Python or will need to install Python to run PyFFI, etc...

  1. Download the latest executable version of Wrye Bash.
  2. If you haven't already done so, also download the latest Wrye Python package.
  3. Run the Wrye Python installer (if necessary).
  4. Windows 7 and Windows Vista users, right-click on the Wrye Bash executable and select Run as administrator. Windows XP users can just double-click on the executable to run it.

If you are not interested in installing Python (or tools dependent on Python, such as PyFFI)...

  1. Download the latest stand-alone installer for Wrye Bash.
  2. Windows 7 and Windows Vista users, right-click on the Wrye Bash executable and select Run as administrator. Windows XP users can just double-click on the executable to run it.
    • Requires the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package. Download this if it is not already installed.
      • The C++ runtime installation is quick and will abort if it has already been installed, so nothing harmful should come of trying to install it (again).

Users planning to install BAINBAsh INstallers can see BAIN Tutorials for more configuration instructions and tips. Bash's installer BAINBAsh INstallers, takes patience and a some knowledge of mod packaging to learn how to really make use of it. In contrast, OBMMOblivion Mod Manager's installation and configuration is simple. However, BAINBAsh INstallers's uninstallations are cleaner, installation status is more visible and accurate, and it inherently affords prioritized installation.
