can't open enb.

  • I have installed enb from enbdev but can't seem to open it . Tried changing the input keys but still doesnot work. I have all the .DLLs installed so no problem there . I use mvga and reshade . Please help

  • @sabyasachi_seal
    Do you get an ENB related message top left of screen when you load the game?

    General ENB & Reshade Info:
    The '[PROXY]' part of 'enblocal.ini' needs to be set up correctly to work with Reshade.
    Mine looks like this for running ENB with an old version of SweetFX.


    You can try that^, it might work.

    Or maybe this:


    You sometimes need to rename .dll's to get them to work together also. It is a bit confusing I'll admit.

    Have a look about this forum, or maybe ask a question there if you can't find a setup similar to yours. Also have a read of the posts in this Google search.

    If you don't have any luck get back to me & I'll see what else I can come up with but do be aware I know of people that have never been able to get ENB & Reshade to play nice together. It's a bit hit & miss especially on Win10 & I have worries of upgrading to Win 10 (from Win7) for this exact reason.
    Best of luck :thumbsup:

  • Thanks man it worked . Using the 1st one worked . You are enb's saviour .

  • @a63nt-5m1th I can't open the enb menu. I tried shift+enter and shift+z. how can i open ?

  • @Y4HY4
    As long as ENB is working & displaying writing at the top left of the screen when you start GTA V, if you open 'enblocal.ini' & set the '[INPUT]' section like this:

    Default 'enblocal.ini' '[INPUT]' settings:

    KeyCombination=16 <!-- Shift -->
    KeyUseEffect=123 <!-- F12 -->
    KeyFPSLimit=36 <!-- Home -->
    KeyShowFPS=106 <!-- * (in the numeric keypad on right of keyboard) -->
    KeyScreenshot=44 <!-- Print Screen -->
    KeyEditor=13 <!-- Return/Enter -->

    The ENB in-game menu will open with Shift+Return/Enter:


    & toggle ON/OFF with Shift+F12.

    You can change those numbers above to whatever key combination you like by referring to a keyboard key code list like this. :thumbsup:

  • @a63nt-5m1th Thank you for your answer. First of all, I don't have the enblocal.ini file. I have an enblocal file. I tried what you said in the enblocal file but the enb menu still doesn't open.

  • @Y4HY4
    For the enblocal file, you likely have file extensions hidden in your Windows Explorer View settings:


    but that won't make any difference to your ability to edit & save it, just useful/safer to be able to see file extensions etc.

    Do you get an ENB message at the top left when starting the game?

  • @a63nt-5m1th only I get the message "17 mod pack installed" in the bottom left

  • @Y4HY4
    No top left ENB message means ENB isn't hooking into the game. How confident are you that it's installed correctly?

    How to install ENB:

    • Download the latest ENB from this page by clicking the down arrow part of the ':arrow_down: download' link at the very bottom left of the page.
    • Extract the contents of the 'enbseries_gta5_v0471.zip' to a folder of your choice
    • In the 'WrapperVersion' folder within, take the 'enbseries' folder & all these files:

    enbseries (folder containing 'enbhelper.dll' & '.ini' files)

    • & drag & drop them into your GTA V root folder (ie the 'Grand Theft Auto V' folder where 'GTA5.exe' is located)
    • Note: If you did anything different to the above when installing ENB previously, or installed to a different location etc, you'll need to find those files & remove them all.
    • Try loading the game to see if the ENB message appears at the top left & also check your in-game GTA V settings & make sure your game is set to use DX11 (not DX10 or DX10.1) & you do not have Frame Scaling switched on.

    If still no ENB message at startup:

    • What GPU do you have? AMD or Nvidia GPU? AMD GPUs have always had a lot of issues with ENB (not sure they are even officially supported, generally they can work, but no support from ENB if you have issues etc). A lot of the new RTX 3000 series Nvidia cards have random weird issues with ENB also.
    • Disable all overlays & such, including MSI Afterburner, Fraps, Nvidia Geforce/Steam/Origin etc overlays. Nearly everything comes with one now-a-days & a lot are hidden away & you may not know they are running etc. Basically, do your research & disable everything like that.
    • Disable Anti-virus or anything like that also.
    • Try uninstalling your current GPU driver in Windows Safe Mode using DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller) & then install the latest driver from a fresh download.
    • Try running check disk on all your hard drives. Then run a System File Scan & then after that perhaps run DISM & make sure your Windows image is good.
    • Just one copy of the game installed?
    • Windows 10 or Windows 11?
    • Download the free version of Windows Repair 4.12.3 & run it's repairs (read it's instructions tho, it steps you through the process & explains everything pretty well, including backups & what to run etc).
    • If you get desperate, maybe try a repair install/in-place upgrade reinstall of Windows (basics here) or even a complete reinstall of Windows.
