Default Skyrim Progression Bug, Ratway Warrens

Hey guys, the title pretty much sums up my problem. I was wondering if anyone else ran into the issue where Esbern won't open the door once you talk to him in the Ratway Warren in "A Cornered Rat"; and if you did run into the problem, has anyone figured out a way to solve it?

Thanks everyone. I hope there is a solution.

@pavtastic, no I guess i haven't installed the update. Is the latest 1.1?

@flexy123, thanks! Im looking over that right now. The simpler fix is the patch so I'm going to try that first though.

Update: So i finished the mission for entrance into the thieves guild where you rough up some people for money, and when i returned to Esbern's door and it was opened. He still doesn't say anything and he gets stuck all the time and wont move, but anytime that happens I just hit him or wait and it fixes it. Hope this helps anyone who has the same problem.

Theres an easy solution use oblivion or fallout mod manager and extract the sounds_extras.esp to your data folder it removes the glitch and allows the quest to progress normally it even gives esburn his voice back

from a different thread that worked for me.

"It took a while, but I found a fix on another thread and confirm it worked for me. Here's what you do....

-If you don't have it, download Oblivion Mod Manager and install.

-Find your skyrim's voicesextra.bsa and open with oblivion mod manager

-Extract it into skyrims Data folder. You don't have to drop it into a sub folder.

-Once its done, start it up and enjoy not having that bug.

No guarantees it will work for everyone, but I was forever stuck at the negotiation with esbern and this fixed it."

Not only does this appear to fix the bug its also worth it to hear Max Von Sydow voice the character

and if you don't have oblivion, use this program

Is there a patch for the PC? I didn't notice any updates. Does Steam do it automatically? I checked Bethesda's website and didn't see any patches listed for Skyrim yet.

Steam does it automatically for legitimate copies. There's also one on this site for cracked ones. Fixes TONS of issues for pc.

(and for the earlier comments, my wife is playing too :D she's a sucker for the elder scrolls games :)
