    Try opening it from the source (steamapps)

    Sorry, how do you do that?

    for me it says "to run this application, you first must install one of the following versions of the .NET framwork: v4.0.30319

    For me it says (when I click play): 'Do you want this program to make changes to this computer?'
    When I click 'yes' It says: Installing Microsoft.NET Framework (step 1 of 2)
    It gets about a tenth of the way through the installation and says: 'Preparing to install' and then disappears. Then when I click on play again it does the whole thing again.

    Try updating your .NET framework

    Do you have a windows vista/7? Sometimes if you don't run files as an administrator these sort of problems can happen.

    I run Windows 7. Not sure if I'm an administrator =/

    Right click the terraria.exe inside your steam folder and choose the option "Run as administrator"

    Okay, I've tried that and it says I have to get a specific type of .NET Framework

    Then you might want to try updating you're .NET framework as well.

    Ok, I tried that and it says that 'Installation did not succeed.' It did the exact same thing as when I tried to play Terraria through steam.
