    You either have 2 options.
    1. Fix your windows installation
    2. Wait for devs to release new patch to remove the requirements, but that may take some time.

    I'm curious as to how that would work, would it be that they have to redo the Pleased Giraffe update in a lower end environment?

    No idea - kyren said something about serialization of libraries, but I got lost after that.

    Ok, well I found out why my computer wasn't working properly. Its a school one so I only have semi-access to admin rights, all windows updates are controlled by the network admin and they havent allowed us to do a system update in quite a while. The command prompt solution didn't work either due to lack of privileges. I'll re-download Starbound on my other computer for now

    1. It's been fine since this update, there shouldn't be anything wrong with it.
    It's worked until the patch for colonization, and is bugging over a .dll i already have...

    As its been stated numerous times, the most common issue is the runtime environment the game is in. The devs upgraded the environment to allow for a better experience or something like that, it's got nothing to do with whats in the update, just the environment they use

    "Working fine" - may be the case. But the reason it doesn't install is because there is an issue with the windows installation.
    Remember the issue isn't with starbound, but actually a patch for windows which is required for starbound to function.
    If you read through the thread - a few users have found out what their issues were and were able to remedy the situation.

    So your best option is just waiting then until the dev's try to find an alternate solution.
    Though fixing the windows issue is always preferred since - you will also fix what ever issue is inside windows in the first place.

    HOW TO FIX THIS Error: The program can't start because api-ms-win-crt-runtime-I1-1-0.dll is missing from your computer.
    You repair these. Restart your computer.
    Then, after that is done
    go to command prompt. Your Runtime.dll may be corrupted, so go to (Win7)Start>AllPrograms>Accessories>Right click CMD and run as admin (Win8) Ctrl+W>CMD>Right click and run as admin
    and do sfc /scannow
    then restart.
    Then when the restart is done go back in the cmd(admin) and do /sfc
    that fixed mine :0
    I also repaired the visual c++ 2015 but that didn't really work so.

    I do Sfc/scannow and i have an error that said "La protection des ressources Windows n'a pas réussi à démarrer le service de réparation"

    There is a space inbetween sfc and /scannow
    (and idk why ur comp cant start the repair service, you may want to get an anti-virus tbh)
    make sure you run it as an adminsitrator

    Kyren is working on a solution that doesn't require installing the visual c++ runtime. We did not anticipate this many people having trouble with what should have been a simple install. We will push out a new version as soon as possible.

    UPDATE: Your Starbound install no longer requires you to install the Visual C++ runtime.
