So, as many PC gamers are probably aware by now, or will be when they get home, there's a patch for Skyrim.
It encrypts TESV.EXE so you can no longer enable the LAA flag. What does that mean? Done any texture modding? Crash to desktop and purple no textures galore! What's it supposed to do? Curb piracy. Thanks!
I found this on the official boards. http://forums.bethsoft.com/index.php?/topic/1284506-how-to-use-falloutnv-4gb-launcher-with-skyrim/page__pid__19387100#entry19387100
What you're essentially doing is making a symbolic link; the New Vegas 4 gig enabler will launch what it thinks is New Vegas, but is actually Skyrim. 72850 is the number Steam associates with Skyrim.
As a side note, I haven't tried this myself. I'm stuck here at work on my Macbook, my Windows install is via Parallels, and my SSD is pretty much full. That, and I've seen videos of Skyrim working well on 13" macbooks. I don't need that temptation...
