Every time I try to open 'Yandere Simulator' Theres always an error. It always says:

Data not found. There should be 'YanSimJune3rd_Data'Folder next to the executable.

I've tried redownloading and extract to different files but this didn't help. Does anyone know how to fix this?

  • are you running this game on steam or as a standalone? – Krazer Jun 11 '15 at 4:50
  • As An StandAlone. – Pitexch Jun 11 '15 at 6:13

You probably changed the name of the launcher. For example:

There will be 2 things after you extract it, the data folder, and yandere launcher, it has to be the same name:

YandereSimulator.exe and YandereSimulator_Data


It was the same thing for me. It was because I extracted the yangere simulator files with IZArc2Go. It makes it wrong and put a mess in the files. So I used another extractor (try version of WinZip) and now all is working perfectly... Good luck...

  • To anyone reading this, please use 7-Zip instead. It's free software (I mean, really free), and overall better. – Ealhad May 4 '17 at 8:29

you need to look for a folder named YandereSimulator_Data (it should be in your downloads folder) and move both the launcher and folder onto your desktop.


I know it has happened to me. But all you have to do is move the YanSim data folder to the desktop.
