First Time Setup Fix
Other people were having this problem and I burried my reply in another thread, so I wanted to give this some visibility:

windows key + R -> type "regedit" (no quotes) and then enter.

Navigate to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Valve\Steam\Apps\217690

Right click, add:

DWORD (32 bit) call it "VCRedist" with a value of 1.

32 bit systems should be in a similar location, try searching for 217690

Basically, you can have a look in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Anna\installscript.vdf" with a text editor to see which registry keys are missing.

So, seeing something like:
"VCRedist"
{
"process 1"
"%INSTALLDIR%\\redist\\vcredist_x86\\vcredist_x86.exe"
"command 1" "/q /norestart"
"description" "Microsoft VC Redist Package 2010"
"NoCleanUp" "1"
}
means that I need to add "VCRedist" to the redistry as a 32-bit DWORD because it was missing.

For my system I needed to add the registry value "VCRedist" to the:

"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Valve\Steam\Apps\217690"

key, with a value of "1" - this fixes the current first time startup issues.

Sweet, it works. Thanks for that. :-) Maybe you should include "regedit" in your previous post. I'm not sure everybody knows how to get to the registry.

.. edited for clarity.

or you could open the installscript.vdf with a notepad delete everything, set it to read-only and you're done

Thanks a lot, your solution really works, but Anna still checks if Directx is intalled. I am running the game in Windows 8.1 64 bits.
