Turns out what you said regarding the conflicts between the trainer and editor are accurate. I restarted the game and only started up the trainer and everything worked fine.
Could this be the problem?
the current .exe's file version is 188.8.131.5211
and current product version is 184.108.40.2064907
so the trainer is for the current borderlands2.exe...
you should check your .exe by right clicking on the .exe and looking at "details" to make sure you have the current one.
In details for borderlands2.exe, the File version is 220.127.116.1111 and the Product version is 18.104.22.1684907
