RustClient.exe - Application Error

When I try to start Rust via Steam or Steam shortcut I am receiving this error.

I can go into the local files and run RustClient.exe no problem, but since it is not running through steam I get EAC disconnected when trying to connect to a server.

Any help would be amazing. Thank you.


Could you see if you’re able to start the game from Steam now? We’ve pushed an anti-cheat update that hopefully fixes this issue for you. Thanks!

If the problem still persists, could you add me in Steam Friends ( for troubleshooting it further?
