If the Windows version of game won't start but complains about missing
libraries or "incorrect application configuration", check that you have
Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 runtime (x86) installed.

Passing '--systemerrors' command line argument to astronautics.exe
enables duplicate but more informative system error dialogs that might
help in diagnosing missing library errors.

In some Linux distributions you may need to install libXaw, libGLU and
libpng12 -packages from package manager.

The game creates an application.log -file in user data directory, which
likely contains more information. When asking for help, please include
the application.log -file if it was created.

The location of user data directory depends on the operating system, it
is typically one of these:
/home/<username>/.astronautics (Linux)
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\astronautics (Windows XP)
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\astronautics (Windows Vista, 7, 8, 10)

If you change system settings and the game won't start anymore,
try passing --video-fail-safe
command line option to the executable. You can also delete configuration.xml in
the user data directory to reset all settings.
