    If you are trying to run Starbound from steam and it does noting at all, no windows or anything, try this;

    Copy Steam\steamapps\common\Starbound\win32\libeay32.dll to Steam\steamapps\common\Starbound\win32\launcher\

    This should fix the launcher not launching. Be sure you copy the file, and not move it.

    If you still get an error, e.g. ordinal 4540 not found in libeay32.dll, I got it to work by installing OpenSSL from http://slproweb.com/products/Win32OpenSSL.html. LIBEAY is part of OpenSSL (some stuff for secure data transfer).

    You might only need the Win32 v1.0.1e Light version (1MB installer), but I installed the 64-bit version as well.

    This is specifically for the launcher not launching at all, not giving any crash or error message to you, and instead immediately exiting.

    Neither of the solutions work for me. I still get no window, no error, no nothing. Also tried admin mode for both launcher.exe and starbound.exe, to no avail.

    Note: This fix is still necessary for me in the latest build.

    Im running Vista and I can pull up the launcher window, yet when i click "launch Starbound" nothing happens. No errors, or messages. Just clicking what seems like an empty button.

    For those who hit launch star bound in the launcher and nothing happens replace the starbound.exe with the starbound_opengl.exe fix. your copy the starbound.exe to a back up folder then rename the starbound_opengl.exe to starbound.exe. this fix worked for me
