Game Crashes On Menu/Makes Windows Explorer Crash

Recommended Posts

Hey all! I'm having some trouble just getting the game to start, and I'm hoping someone here can help me, because I didn't get help anywhere else I tried.


The Issue: When I try to play Don't Starve it loads to the menu and then instantly crashes. When I make a desktop icon and try to right click on it to open properties it makes my Windows Explorer crash. Same thing will happen a lot when I try to browse the files of DS. FWIW, Don't Starve Together launches just fine.

What I've tried so far: 

- Uninstalling and reinstalling the game (including to an external hard drive)

- Verifying the integrity of cache

- Unsubscribing from all mods, deleting the files in the mod folder, and verifying cache

- Launching the .exe file with admin permissions (right clicking on the .exe file makes Windows Explorer crash so I can't elevate it to Admin....)

Specs: WIndows 7, i7-4790 CPU @ 3.60 GHz, 8gb ram

Anyway, I'm hoping someone here can give me an idea of what's going on. I've included the most recent crash file, the backup_log.txt, and log.txt in case they help.
