No, it is meant to run on all systems. However this seems to be a common problem and i'm working on a solution. I'll update as soon as i found out how.

I'm having no end to the problems I think I may have selected the wrong files when I downloaded it and now it's just not working at all it won't let me re-select anything also does it need to be 4.0 for .Net or can it be 4.5?

It should run fine on .net 4.5

Try this to fix the problem:
1. Download this .bat file in to your FTL folder and execute it. This should unpack the .dat files.

2. Delete the settings.xml in the folder where you put the FTL Ship Creator.exe.

3. On start, the dialog where you select the folders should reappear. Select the second option and choose the two newly created folders in your /FTL/resources/ folder. They are called "data.dat-unpacked" and "resource.dat-unpacked".

Skip step 1 if you already unpacked them on your own.

Thanks for testing

This didn't work for me. I can't reselect the folders. It just jumps straight into the creation screen.

That is indeed strange. In the newest version (yet to be released) the selection windows pops up every time, unless you specifically tell the tool not to. You can also open it from within the program in the "tools" section".

I thought the way it works now would be a good idea, but it causes way more problems than I anticipated.

Sorry that I can't help you for now.

I'm having the same problem. Otherwise ur software is awesome, and user friendly.
Anyway, I wanted to test my ship so I created a folder with my ship like u said, then I zipped it and renamed it to have an .ftl file, but it still won't work: after using the GMM, and clicking on "New Game" in the main menu, the game crashes.

PLEASE HELP ME! I would love to play the ship I created!

Its Giving me an error on grognak's mod manager that it doesn't have permission to get the images, I tried downloading ftldat and McAfee removed it because it said it was a Trojan virus, and i used a FTL unpacker program and unpacked the DAT files and it still gave me the same error. By the way i have the steam version of FTL. I used the crystalline cruiser image. I figured out when i used a image of the rebel flagship or Rebel elite fighter it worked.
