How to bypass RadeonPro and make SweetFX work with ESOLauncher?

I've tried to make SweetFX work with RadeonPro but it simply doesn't - when I toggle it on and off in-game nothing changes.

I have and enjoy ESOLauncher and it's fog removing capabilities so I'd like to use that anyway, but I have no idea how to install it with ESOLauncher? Could someone who has ESOLauncher and SweetFX running aid me?

    Well, I've only tried GemFX in conjuction with the ESOLauncher but I don't see why SweetFX wouldn't work the same way...
    Move everything from the SweetFX_ESO folder in the folder where eso.exe is (in my case: C:\Program Files (x86)\ESO\Zenimax Online\The Elder Scrolls Online EU\game\client). After that it should work automatically (the ESOLauncher, as usual, doesn't have to be in the same folder, it can be wherever).

    To uninstall SweetFX delete the files you placed inside the client folder (it's a good idea to take a screenshot of the client folder before moving anything to it so that you know which files to delete).

    If you're on Win8, this thread might be related to your problem: https://forums.gamemodi.net/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=1964

    So I've moved all the files from the SweeFX_ESO file to my client folder, I've set the preset to a custom one in the SweetFX_preset.txt file. I go to launch through ESOLauncher and it starts to load but then fails and returns to desktop before the beginning company flashscreens.

    I'm not running windows 8, I'm on windows 7.

    Anything I'm doing wrong? What is this GemFX and will custom SweetFX presets work with it?

    Have you tried doing this?
    In case you immediately crash when starting up the game; go into \Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\liveeu or livena for americans I believe and open UserSettings.txt and change the variable SET GraphicsDriver.7 "D3D11" to "D3D9".

    I don't think sweetfx presets work for gemfx. There's only one eso preset for gemfx that I could find which is this: http://sfx.thelazy.net/games/preset/3010/, it has instructions on where to get it/how to replace presets on that page, after downloading GEMFXv1_0_8.exe, click on it and just extract everything inside the client folder.
    But GemFX has a bit more extreme settings as you can see (though my game doesn't look anywhere near as dark) and it might not be your cup of tea.

    I tried changing it to D3D9 but that didn't work, same result.

    Yeah that GemFX looks a bit too far from my taste unfortunately.

    I've switched to SweetFX and it still works with ESOLauncher, so I'm kinda out of ideas, sorry : (

    Just in case, this is how my client folder looks like with sweetfx in it: http://i.imgur.com/kRVs5Wv.png
    Also I have the esolauncher folder on my desktop, if that makes any difference.
