      That's what I did it just told me the same thing - StardewModdingApi.Installer has stopped working. Honestly not sure what i'm doing wrong I followed all the steps. :(

        I can't = It was not created. I still use 1.4, because some mods not work.

          I'm having the same issue. I've tried the normal installer and It just instantly crashes. I tried doing a manual installation and that would have the same issue.

            @Laken and @Bob Mosses: can you both reply with a screenshot of the installer window when the error appears?

            @ShneekeyTheLost and @nirasa1957: SMAPI 1.6 has a potential workaround for your Steam launch issue. Can you try the attached preview version and see if the game launches correctly?

            [edit: file removed; see the latest version instead.]

              It appears to be in working order. Launching the game from Steam pops it up like it should.

                MM ok I'm not entirely sure what's up with mine, but I get as far as this and then the game just shuts down, it doesn't even load:

                I tried to re-install the unofficial CJB cheat menu, but I'm guessing something's wrong with it!

                  Hi @vulpiidae. You're using SMAPI 0.40 alpha, which is very old; try updating to the latest SMAPI 1.5. Also, you should move the CJBCheatsMenu folder into the "Mods" folder. Let me know whether those changes fix your issue. :)

                    Ah, thank you! Almost, although now the cheat menu doesn't seem to be working at all. Now I've got this--

                      No such luck! I'm certain I'm installing it right as well. Do you need to see inside any of the folders? The unofficial only had two files in it, I added the .dll file to the Mods folder, and the .json to the main.

                        @vulpiidae Make sure you keep the mod files together. Your folders should be like this:
                        Code:
                        Stardew Valley/
                           Mods/
                              CJBCheatsMenu/
                                 CJBCheatsMenu.dll
                                 manifest.json

                            gonna make sure my .NET framework is set up. I thought i had already done that but apparently not.

                            Shame on me. That got the installer to run properly.

                              SMAPI 1.6. alpha. It is still the same error. Manually it's work, but via Steam isn't.

                                Ask, Did SMAPI 1.6 compatible to play in offline mode?
                                Already played SV for 4 months and wanna try some mods, but most of my time used in offline mode due to bad connection at certain time. In the SMAPI 1.5, the error occur when load the save file in offline mode.
                                Thanks in advance

                                Sorry for my bad english

                                  SMAPI is offline compatible yes, if it doesnt work please post your log (See http://canimod.com/guides/smapi-faq.html#where-is-my-error-log-and-how-do-i-share-it for how to find the log)
                                  Without a log we can do very little for you. :(

                                    @nirasa1957 In the game folder, you should see a file named StardewModdingAPI.config.json. Inside that file, change "CheckForUpdates": true to "CheckForUpdates": false; does that make any difference?
