It is more probably one of the mods you have installed that requires the ASI loader. Which, if you are using the mods folder, is pretty much every single mod. Disable/remove each mod individually until you find the problematic one.
As a first test, try renaming the mods folder to something else to disable it, then check if the error occurs. If it still occurs, try renaming the scripts folder to something else to disable, and check again.
If disabling one of these folders fixes the problem, go into the folder and disable mods individually.
If disabling these folders didn't fix the problem, try disabling .asi mods individually by renaming them.
