Still nothing.

It might be worth mentioning what I get this error if I simply start openmw.exe, but I don't think it's very relevant since it's not even properly set up. :?

So I searched google for that error in the screenshot you gave ("boost::filesystem::path codecvt to wstring error") and I found a link back to this forum recommending running system repair (viewtopic.php?f=8&t=3496&hilit=boost%3A ... g%3A+error)

Might be worth a try

Is system repair really the only option here?

Doesn't that mean I have to wipe my drive?

Stuff like chkdsk and sfc /scannow might be able to detect and fix things in-place.

Don't forget to open the command prompt as administrator "Command Prompt (Admin)" before running:

sfc /scannow

Leave the Command Prompt window open until the command completes, which may take some time.

Hmm, I looked at other forums and in most of them the error is actually that their file path uses characters that the application doesn't like, which has caused problems before. Do any of the folders OpenMW is in have punctuation, accented or non-Latin letters or any other symbol that might cause problems (easily checkable by clicking on the address bar)?

Check your home/user directory under "c:/Users/", the configuration files go there.
My opinions are my own. I am just a thankful user of OpenMW with no affiliation with the dev team.

The files are openmw.cfg and settings.cfg.
Should be located under: C:\Users\HERE_COMES_YOUR_USERNAME\Documents\my games\OpenMW (At least in my win 8.1)
