Problems with Exe and how to launch game on low settings

Hi guys. We have launched on steam early access. We have an issue. When on steam setting up the path to fire off the exe after the client has downloaded the game and hits the play button on his steam client an error comes up and says cannot find exe. We worked for 18+ hours on this issue. Nothing worked.

But you could go in manually after the game downloads and launch it directly from the exe.

Any idea why this is?

A quick fix we did by the way we have 4.1.1 was we created a small launcher and had that launcher direct it to the exe. That Works!! The problem is only high end PC’s can run it after hitting the play button at the launcher starts up. The half that cannot the launcher runs than closes. But those people can still go in and launch the exe manually from the downloaded game.

So any help would be great. I guess my main question is how can we get steam to recognize the exe and get rid of that launcher so everyone can play it,

and also a quick fix might be if I can package the game with the graphic settings to low, this might take care of this issue on the launcher side.

Would like to know both solutions mainly why the exe does not fire off.

Thanks guys
