  • Whenever I try to open Rust from my Steam menu, I get an error for "RustClient.exe" that says "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000005)..." Does anyone know of a fix for this? I tried reinstalling Rust to no avail. It's been a good 5 months since I've played and I've never had this problem playing Rust in the past. Any help is much appreciated!

  • Uninstall your game, delete the leftover files in your steamapps directory. Install install the game again and check if it worked.

  • I did do that already. Uninstalled Rust, deleted "Rust" folder in steamapps and still have the same problem. Thanks for the reply!

  • in the steam directory there is a EasyAntiCheat folder, open it and run the exe. Select rust and click reinstall.

  • mmm, you may need to check if all the prerequisites are installed that is needed to run the game. Install the stuff in the _CommonRedist folder manually. also check if your PC drivers are up to date.
