RUST WONT LAUNCH PROPERLY

I purchased Rust a while back. Once I decided to play it again, I began to get all this error - https://gyazo.com/2c33eb03050871388922e5053c8e2d25
If you don’t want to open it, it’s Launcher Error (50). There have been other members in the community getting this error - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OGBnVhYOGgY
Please help!

I’ve tried reinstalling and I’ve tried to turn off my antivirus (AVAST). I’ve verified cache but cannot get it to work!

Make sure you’ve done your Windows updates.

which windows update?

All of the ones checked by default.

wait is it the updates you can select under Control Panel > System and Security > Windows Update??

pretty much. and if you have heaps of updates queued there, it’s worth updating in the long term anyway for OS stability.
