In the Silent Hunter 4 directory we all have

MODS\* (we all created this one - JSGME will create if it does not exist)
JSGME.EXE (we all downloaded this and put it here)
JSGME.EXE is the program that manages and installs mods

Everything is relative.
Data\everythingthegameusesgoessomewhereunderdata\*
MODS\weputallourmodpacksundermods\*

If a MOD changes Data\Cfg\Commands.cfg then it is packaged as

MyUooberMod1.1\Data\Cfg\Commands.cfg

and placed in MODS so you have
MODS\MyUooberMod1.1\Data\Cfg\Commands.cfg
MODS\SomeOtherMOD\Data\otherfiles*

When you use JSGME to Install "MyUooberMod1.1",
MODS\MyUooberMod1.1\Data\Cfg\Commands.cfg
is copied to Data\Cfg\Commands.cfg
(after the original is backed up).
So, the mod is now active the next time you play.

Using JSGME, you can then later uninstall the mod.

Download JSGME (Generic Mod Enabler) here

Hope this helps.
