I recently went to start using MV through Steam and found it wouldn't launch. It would sort of just hang, half loaded, steam detecting it, but having to dig deep into Task Manager to find and kill the process. Okay, I thought, whatever. I'll just reinstall. No dice. I'll install the newest beta, then? Still no dice. I just went into the folder and noted there are absolutely NO NewData folders of any kind in my Steam RPG Maker MV folder. Is this maybe why it isn't working? Or is it some other issue? To me it's not the end of the world; I can use the standalone version. But this doesn't seem like a good thing to me. :\

Mine has been telling me the executable is missing a time or two before it loads up ultimately (sometimes I actually see a loading splash from steam itself) Maybe some ninja patching going on, other than that my project is fine. No missing data.. that I know of. I have been having problems with getting DLC to download on all my machines, but that is probably something on my end meow.

Recently I've had a problem with MV as well. It was stuck in an endless update loop, but never really downloaded necessary files. I solved it by reinstalling Steam and installing the game in a different directory.

Reinstalling Steam? Geez. Well. If I can't get anything else working, I may have to try that tomorrow. But it's definitely looking on my end to be missing files. Not awesome. =\

If you people are about to reinstall steam though, first create a backup of the already installed games you got, except MV, then you clean things up, then you reinstall. Tell me if this solves the case so I can pass the knowledge through the Steam forum.

Well, I didn't need to reinstall Steam for it (have more than one hard drive), but it looks like uninstalling and then reinstalling MV in a different location did the trick for me.
