    Having the same problem in Linux. Won't start with the executable or from Steam. Just no response at all.
    Arch Linux 3.12.0
    Nvidea GTX 570
    I deleted all local data and reinstalled, still having the same problem. Getting ready to leave for work. I'll just assume it'll be working by the time I get home. If not, I'll dig deeper and see if I can help debug what's happening.

    Actually, was able to resolve my issue by installing libpng12. I had libpng installed, but needed 1.2. For Arch Linux it was a simple pacman -S libpng12. Hope that helps someone else!

    Be sure to check whether your antivirus program does mention something about a virus alert when you try to start Starbound.
    Mine did suspect a virus in one of the launcher dlls (Qt5WebKit.dll). After setting an exception for this file in my antivirus software, Starbound launched just fine, whereas before nothing propted.

    Hope, this may help a few of you guys!

    I have the same situation. Well steam icon turns green then goes blue. Nothing. Win 7 64. Turning off overlay or setting exes as admin do not work.

    I'm new to Linux here, can you explain HOW that fix works, or what to do? Or what that IS? :rofl: I'm literally lost

    EDIT: Ohp, nevermind. Figured it out. Terminal n' all.

    I'm learning things.

    I have a friend with this same problem on Windows 7 with an AMD HD7470m. Both the launcher and the game executables refuse to run with no errors. Disabling antivirus and all the usual workarounds (running as admin, verifying files, running DirectX installer manually) did not help.

    Apologies for double posting but I want to make sure everyone who's watching the thread gets a notification.

    After some googling, my friend was able to fix the game and can now play! A possible solution for Windows users with this problem:
    Copy Starbound\win32\libeay32.dll to Starbound\win32\launcher\

    well you are right that fixt it
    looks like IIS 7 is messing with starbound..

    well issue resolved !

    Resolution. Copy libey32 and sslibey32 dll from w32 to the launcher folder .. this way they will get found by the game and it will start. looks like the way those 2 files are found by is wrong since he was looking for them in my IIS 7.5 express isntalation folder .. the way i now that is becouse after i copyed the first file i was getting errors taht the sslibey32.dll was not found in my IIS instalation folder ...
