If you're unable to launch Celeste on Windows, please try the following:
- Make sure you have XNA Redistributable 4.0 installed (you can also download it from itch.io by selecting itch-redists-xna-4.0.zip from the list)
- Make sure you have .NET Framework 4.5 installed
- Make sure the game is being run from a location that has Read/Write File access. (ex. if you unzip it in Program Files or something, it may not be able to write save data, error logs, etc).
- Make sure the Folder Structure looks like this (ie. keep Celeste.exe and its Content folder together!)
- If it still doesn't launch, try the OpenGL Windows Version instead
- If neither versions of the game run, check to see if there is an "error_log.txt" in the game directory, beside Celeste.exe, and post it here.
