Lightbulb Fix: Stopping Steam from running First Time Setup for VC Redist

Does your copy of the game keep trying to run first time setup every time you launch it? I found a fix. Someone mentioned it in passing before but I had a hard time finding it with Google so I thought I'd record my solution here.

Basically the installer doesn't correctly register that all of the redistributable packages have already been installed.

Look for this file: C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Super Street Fighter IV - Arcade Edition\45760_install.vdf

This is a text file that tells you what packages should be installed, in particular this section:

	"Run Process"
			"HasRunKey"		"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\Software\\Valve\\Steam\\Apps\\45760"
			"process 1"		"%INSTALLDIR%\\redist\\directx_Jun2010_redist\\DXSETUP.exe"
			"command 1"		"/silent"
			"NoCleanUp"		"1"
			"HasRunKey"		"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\Software\\Valve\\Steam\\Apps\\45760"
			"process 1"		"%INSTALLDIR%\\redist\\vcredist_x86\\vcredist_x86.exe"
			"command 1"		"/q"
			"NoCleanUp"		"1"
			"HasRunKey"		"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\Software\\Valve\\Steam\\Apps\\45760"
			"process 1"		"%INSTALLDIR%\\redist\\Gfwlivesetup35.exe"
			"command 1"		"/q"
			"NoCleanUp"		"1"
Now run regedit (start -> run -> type "regedit") and manually check that all three keys are present + an extra one named "Installed" are present. If not (in this case my vcredist was missing) create a new DWORD (rightclick -> new -> DWORD) and give it a hex value of 1.

This problem seems to affect multiple games and the vdf file should be checked on a case by case basis. If this doesn't fix your problem, it may be that your drivers or redistributable packages are out of date. Uninstall all copies of the related programs and manually reinstall the most recent version.

Hope this helps!
