If it hasn't been suggested before. Do this.
Delete the contents and directory of \SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\7 Days To Die
Install a vanilla copy of 7D2D
copy the contents of \SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\7 Days To Die somewhere else.
Download the Client install on page 1 of this thread.
Extract the contents of that zip file and copy it into the folder where your copy is. If you don't get a windows replace files warning --- you are doing it wrong. The zip file has the same folder structure of where it should be. You will see the same directory names in the extracted file that are present in your copy of 7D2D.
Double click on 7DaysToDie.exe to run the game. It should work.
I run a standalone server for my friends and I. Its not neccessary --- but there are some good advantages to that one of which is performance and not relying on someones machine to be running the game.
