git clone https://github.com/BlueprintCoding/SillyTavernSimpleLauncher -b main
Then once the repo is cloned, open the "SillyTavernSimpleLauncher" folder and run the "STSL GUI Launcher.bat" file. It will ask for adminstrator permissions to download and install all of the dependencies. (During initial install you may need to run this bat file twice in a row to ensure all dependencies are installed and activated)
If you don't have GIT installed you can go the GitHub latest releases and download the most recent release zip file.
Then once the zip is downloaded, extract the "SillyTavernSimpleLauncher" folder where you want SillyTavern to be installed and run the "STSL GUI Launcher.bat" file.

Support the Development of STSL
In my spare time, alongside my regular 9-5 job and my 3D printing shop, I work on STSL. If you'd like to show your support directly, you can become a subscriber on Patreon. My main aim with STSL is to make it super user-friendly for people who aren't tech-savvy, allowing them to easily install and utilize SillyTavern and Extras. I'm also working on including a bunch of extra features for those who are more experienced, such as profile management. Get exclusive access to rewards for supporting.
SillyTavern Simple Launcher is in active development, we are constantly fixing issues and adding new features. The features below are our wishlist for the next few months, in no particular order.
