Friends can't open my packed games

I have sent my packaged windows game for both shipping and development to my friends. A few have been able to run it now problem, but most cannot. Their folder containing the everything looks nothing like that I sent them. They can’t open the .exe. It just errors out.


When you package it, it’s just a folder. How are you sending it to them?

It creates a folder called WindowsNoEditor. I upload that folder to my google drive to share. I also tried taking that folder and turning it into a .rar to compress it a bit. Both of those options turn out the same results.
