Rust Luncher Error, Error Code: 100

So a friend of mine is getting those errors over and over again. We tried everything that we found on the web:

  1. Updating Directx
  2. Re-install Microsoft .NET
  3. Deleting EAC and installing it again
  4. Unistalling Rust and downloading it again
  5. Restarting PC 1273410471 times

This is the first time he is trying to play Rust after two months of break.

Best thing is, legacy works with no problems.

Help. I’m out of ideas.

No one? :frowning:

Are you able to start the game, if you run it from Steam\SteamApps\common\rust\RustClient.exe? Which Windows version do you have, is it 32bit/64bit?

We did try Rust.exe and RustClient.exe - both of them have the same problem. It is Windows 7, 64bit.

Then it must be something about missing dependencies that the game needs to run. You already mentioned DirectX and .NET, those I would have suggested otherwise to install.

I would check if there’s a crash dump folder in Steam\SteamApps\rust, or anything in rust\RustClient_Data\output_log.txt that could give hints what went wrong.
