Hello, I think this error is related to the fact that PhysFS had issues with windows 1809 (https://icculus.org/pipermail/physfs/2018-October/001273.html).
Since the library was updated to fix this, maybe updating PhysFS's DLL in Colobot would fix this issu.

I am having the same issue. How can I update the PhysFs's DLL?

While the physfs people have prepared a fix, they have not made a stable release since so the only option is compiling physfs from source. We'll probably have to provide our own version soon.

Actually somebody on the Colobot discord provided a hotfix which worked in my case. It's just a zip to extract in Colobot's installation directory.
Thank to this fix I can now run Colobot on my Windows 10 1809

This is compiled from dev branch, it contains changes prepared for upcoming release, so it's more than just hotfix.

New version is now live, both release and dev builds are patched against this error, so IMHO this issue might be closed.
