PC: Can't start the game

Recommended Posts


I bought a new computer lately (didn't play Don't Starve on it yet).I installed the game but when I launch it, the steam launcher window pops up, then after 5 seconds closes.

I verified the game file integrity, reinstalled the game, restarted the computer, no changes.

The game appear briefly in the task manager and the task bar, but closes before really startin

Hey there, sorry to hear that you're having trouble with the game. If you haven't yet, please check out our Don't Starve troubleshooting guide to see if these steps are of help.

I also notice that your version of Windows 10 is from November 2019. Could you try to update your Windows 10 to the latest version: version:  https://support.microsoft.com/en-ca/help/4027667/windows-10-update

You can also try temporarily lowering your desktop's default resolution from 3840x2160 to 1920x1080, when trying to launch the game on your computer.
