They Bleed Pixels

.NET first time install, but installs every time I play the game.
Btw, needed to report a problem. Everytime I start the game it installs .NET 4.0 and states it's installing it for the first time. The game still works but it's an annoying error. The main problem is that since it's installing it each time, it is kicking off my Norton Ghost 15.0 Backup system which I have triggered to do a backup anytime new software is installed. If there is a quick solution, I'd love to hear about it. Otherwise I'll have to disable that feature until this is fixed or I stop playing the game on a regular basis.

Happens to me as well. I've just been disallowing the Steam Client Service whenever it wants to run and it seems to work.

If the game plays but you find that it keeps trying to install things then go to your TBP subdirectory in steam, typically here:
"C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\they bleed pixels"
and rename the following three files:
to *.OLD or something - doesn't matter. Could also delete them.

Let me know what happens.
I deleted those Files and it worked thanks for the help

Sorry, but this only sort-of works for me.
If I rename or delete those files, Steam still wants to go through the first-time-setup routine (each time I launch the game), asking me for admin rights to do so (it then doesn't find the installers and goes on starting the game).
The only thing that works for me is double-clicking "They Bleed Pixels PC.exe" directly instead of launching the game via Steam.

@rubregg - you need to give Steam and TBP the correct permissions, otherwise it can't write to the registry and doesn't remember that it's installed the setup files the next time it runs.
