The Skyrim configurator tool is a Qt based GUI to edit the configuration files of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
If you really like this tool please donate:
Just unzip and run the application.
If an error shows up make sure to install the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable.(http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=5582)
What is it doing?
It reads the Skyrim.ini and SkyrimPrefs.ini files and re-writes them when you apply changes.
Before it re-writes these files it does backup the old ones, so you can easily revert changes.
Q: How does the Preview function work?
A: it's just showing screenshots with the setting applied
