Windows Simulator can't run pdx files on a different drive

Several people in the Discord have run into an issue where the Windows Simulator presents a generic "Error" when trying to run a compiled pdx project. Based on what others have said, the issue seems to be that the Simulator (and by extension the PlaydateSDK) must be located on the same drive as the pdx file or it will not run on the Simulator. I have recreated a simple example, showing the error and console log when running the same FlippyFish pdx on both my C drive and my D drive.


Thanks for the report.

See earlier report Error loading game .pdx from another drive to see that this is already being dealt with.
