Running a Conan Exiles Dedicated Gameserver on Windows

Running a Conan Exiles Gameserver on Windows is pretty easy (in comparison to linux). But it requires a few steps.

  1. Download SteamCMD from: https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/client/installer/steamcmd.zip
  2. Extract the contents of the zip
  3. Install SteamCMD to a directory for example: c:\steamcmd
  4. Run SteamCMD once to start the self update
  5. Run SteamCMD with the following command to download the dedicated server: steamcmd +login anonymous +force_install_dir c:\conan +app_update 443030 +quit
  6. Now the Conan Exiles Dedicated Server is available at c:\conan\ConanSandboxServer.exe

The configuration files are available in the folder: c:\conan\ConanSandbox\Saved\Config\WindowsServer
The primary configuration file for the server is serversettings.ini.
engine.ini contains the Servername and the Serverpassword:

[OnlineSubsystemSteam]
ServerName=YourServername
ServerPassword=YourServerPassword

You can use one of these configuration files as a base for your server configuration:
