    The folder the launcher is located should not effect it at all as its not the actual game. It auto-places in that folder so steam will automatic run it.

    It should work on 64 bit machines (my PC is 64bit and it was developed on my laptop which as 64bit too).

    It maybe because its trying to run a 64bit OpenGL starbound (which performs the best), but your computer may not be able to run. In that case, you would need to edit the settings to tell it to launcher another version of starbound.

    In the launcher.config, you will see 2 settings:
    Code:
    path_launch = win64\
    file_launch = starbound_opengl.exe
    
    These settings determin which .exe of starbound to use and in what folder. As you can see, on my settings it defaults to win64 version of the openGL starbound. if your computer cannot run it because of the OpenGL, change the following line to this:
    Code:
    file_launcher = starbound.exe
    
    If that still doesn't work, try making it run the 32bit version of starbound (32bit will run on 32bit OS and 64bit OS. The 64bit version will only run on 64bit OS though):
    Code:
    path_launch = win32\
    file_launch = starbound.exe

    Upon downloading the launcher, my game has become very laggy. I still chat just fine, but moving is problematic.
    I am using it on my laptop which is 64-bit, idk if that helps.

    The launcher goes grab the 64bit of starbound that usually has better performance.
    On the launcher click Settings, on the text file it opens check:
    "
    path_launch = win64\

    file_launch = starbound_opengl.exe

    "

    You can edit win64 to win32 (and restart launcher). 64bit starbound only work with opengl, but if 32bit you can edit file_launch to starbound.exe as well. See what fits you better.

    it means it cannot locate your starbound. It tries to run the opengl.exe version which for some reason a) does not exist or b) is not in the expected path.

    Can you please post your settings file? Clicking on "settings" should open it up into a text editor. If not, try opening it manually (located here) (replace {USERNAME} with your username:
    Code:
    C:\Users\{USERNAME}\AppData\Local\StarboundLauncher

    because its a .config.... window's does natively recognise this file. I forgot that as I have assigned windows to recognise it ages ago and I assumed people would know how to sort it out... sorry (I have a bad habbit of assuming :p )

    Okay, how to fix....

    Step one:
    Go to the file, right click -> Open With... -> choose default program...

    Step two:
    Pick your preferred text editor (like notepad), then press okay

    Step three: Profit.


    Windows shall now open it like a normal text file.
