    Hi everyone,
    I can't seem to access the Steam Workshop. Apparently I have to go to File then Manage Projects, but Manage Projects isn't there.

    You might have loaded the stand-alone version, and not the version on Steam, as it won't exist on the stand-alone version.

    you can install both on the same computer (I used that years ago to have both german and english version at the same time), you just need to remember which shortcut launches which one.

    If you forgot that, you can always get the steam version to launch if you launch steam and then run from the list there.

    @MushroomCake28 Yes I purchased RPG Maker VX Ace through Steam. I used to be able to see "Manage Projects" on File, so I'm not sure why it's not appearing anymore.

    @Andar
    Sorry, I'm still confused. I opened up Steam and this is what it looks like:

    Could you show me how to open the Steam version of RPG Maker VX Ace?

    Should just be as simple as hitting launch in that command. From there, you might want to close out of your project first, then see if the option appears.

    If not then for some reason it's running the stand-alone version. Did you ever buy the stand-alone version? A couple users reported that the OS can get confused and launch the wrong one due to an icon misassociation. You may have to deinstall and reinstall the program to fix that.

    Okay I figured out the problem. I had to switch to from "original - Original non Workshop version" to "NONE - Opt out of all beta programs".
    Thanks everyone!
