Help pleaaase, Rust Grey screen and facepunch logo

Hi, some days ago i installed Rust on my W7 64-bit PC but when i went to run it, i had this grey facepunch symbol error that everyone has and i didnt run, so like i always do when i have game errors i went to google… soon i found a video that showed that installing vcredist x86 fixed it, so happy because i thought it was going to be fixed, i installed it and and ran the game again, but not like others who had this problem and with this they fixed it, mine is still the same… ive tried compatibility mode,tried all the resolutions and settings, installed all the vcredist, putting the vcredist.exe in the game folder but still nothing, i installed the game too on my W7 32-bit notebook and had the same problem but when i installed vcredist x86 it got fixed. But sadly my pc seems to have no cure, the logo stays forever

Have you reinstalled .NET Framework? Someone else was having crashing problems that were fixed by doing that.

No, but ill try, you see the problem is that i cant even start the game

Well, yeah, that’s the crashing problems I’m talking about. The problem the guy was having was, Rust was immediately crashing as soon as he tried to open it. Reinstalling .NET Framework solved it for him.

It might fix it for you. But it might not.

What does your output_log.txt say?

Sometimes I have this after relaunching the game. Only restart works then (Maybe restarting steam could work too).

Also I won’t be able to terminate the process while it’s on grey screen. But I have this process ending problem with CSGO as well.

.NET Framework reinstall/update is what worked for me, hope it helps.
