    hello I'm having trouble getting my game to start since the update, I run windows 10 and it will not boot up from steam it goes through the first run setup and thats it, also I've tried to install the latest visual studio C++ 2015 but it tells me another version is already running so I can't seem to install it, anyone else having this problem with windows 10?

    I purchased Starbound for my wife and I on the 30th, but are experiencing this issue. Seems I picked an interesting time to grab a couple of copies.

    A new patch was pushed to unstable to see if its working.
    I suggest downloading unstable and see if its fixed resply here, and then it will be pushed to stable.

    @xxswatelitexx, I just posted on the steam forums (since they don't think to come here) for everyone having issues to install Unstable and try it. Then linked this thread for them to report. That way, CF will know if it does work or not.
    Hope you don't mind.

    My wife and I just tried the unstable version and it works - I didn't need to do ANYTHING with vc2015 or Windows. It looks like this patch fixed the problem. We'll keep playing to see if there are any resulting bugs.

    ...That's odd. I don't have a 'prereqs' folder, nor the vc_redist exe files.What's really weird was that since getting the Pleased Giraffe Update, my Launcher worked just fine, but the hotfix suddenly rendered the launcher 'crash-on-start'... I can run the game directly, no problem... but the convenient launcher now has barely half a second to have a choice selected before it crashes.

    That issue is unrelated to this then.
