Resolved No "_commonredist" folder in Program Files (x86) ... Stardew Valley

    I'm having the white screen on launch crash and I've tried everything except "Run xnafx40_redist.msi in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Stardew Valley\_CommonRedist\XNA\4.0" because that folder doesn't exist for me.


    I have:
    Uninstalled and reinstalled the game through Steam
    Deleted startup_preferences
    Uninstalled and reinstalled Microsoft XNA Framework redistributable in Windows
    Changed the fullscreen and windowed mode value in the config
    Pressed F12 while launching the game

    The only solution I haven't tried is running or repairing xnafx40_redist.msi because _CommonRedist is not in my (x86) file path.

    I have played hundreds of hours without a problem, took a break for about 6 months, and now the game won't launch anymore. I have attached my error log. Any advice is appreciated.

    Thank you!

      Steam changed how files are distributed, so the _CommonRedist folder no longer exists. Sounds like you're following an old guide; see these steps on the wiki instead. Try reinstalling the .NET Framework and XNA Framework versions linked from that section.

        Thanks for the reply Pathoschild! I tried the steps in the wiki but unfortunately it didn't fix it. Also, I found xnafx40_redist in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Steamworks Shared\_CommonRedist\XNA\4.0 and ran it but it didn't work either. Oh well, thanks again and I'll keep searching.

          Hi Pathoschild, I found a comment you left on reddit and advised to close RivaTuner. That fixed it! You're the best, thank you! :) Anyone having white screen on launch problem and running RivaTuner, close it (and MSI Afterburner too because it will just re-launch RivaTuner).
