I had exported my VN in Novelty and under the "build" folder where the exported file was stored, I created a shortcut to open the game. This shortcut works fine on my computer. It's just when I try to send it to others it doesn't work.
P.s here is the link that my friends tried to download. https://ashleighkate.itch.io/arcadia-test

For this, you could just tell them to put the folder in their desktop (making sure the Build folder is in a folder named Novelty Dantae Game and that folder is in a folder named Novelty1 (Dantae Game)). Either that, or have them make their own shortcut to Play Game.exe (or have them just open Play Game.exe).
For those who are freelance VN staff and also for those who are VN team leaders, please read this. Inform yourselves. Thank you.

While I wait for it to download, I'll offer this bit of advice. I'd recommend you give serious consideration to reducing the size of the files in your visual novel. Music files often take up a huge amount of file space. You can use a sound file editor to shorten the playing time of music files, and then tell Novelty to 'loop' them.
EDIT: I downloaded it and looked at the unzipped contents. It's what firecat said, I suggest you create a new folder on your hard drive and export the game to that folder, and then zip it.
I'd recommend NOT including a shortcut file to the zipped file.
