  • Now click on Change Settings to grant the required access
  • Allow Skyrim all its related application in both Public and Private networks
  • Make sure to check that you’ve allowed Steam
  • Save these settings and run the game now.

Even after granting firewall access, the SKSE64 is still showing the same issue; you can try turning off your antivirus.

Turning Off the Antivirus

You need to turn off your installed antivirus because sometimes the antivirus software’s like (Avast, AVG, McAfee, Bitdefender, Kaspersky AV etc.) are the main reason behind such problems. Check to see whether it solves your problem or not.
