Issue: Steam Version Not Working for You

Recommended Posts

Marak    27

Seems like they added some dependencies that don't play nice with Windows XP. :(

OK, yeah. It looks like we added a new dependency that has disrupted XP support. We don't have many XP computers laying about in the office for testing. It's over a decade old! :)

We'll take a look at the issue in the morning. Sorry about that, guys.

Hopefully they can cobble something together; I'd love to be able to test out this new update and see how things stand now with the Hounds and rebalancing and the Spacebar "auto-whatever-is-closest" command.

After the new update - it seems that i'm not on the test build and the game works perfectly fine. Thank you for the reassurance that this game will be able to play without restarting.

dwmapi.dll is a Windows Vista file - so if you are running XP you wont have it and it wont function properly.

Whatever you changed made the game work for me on my laptop! Hurrah!

My laptop runs windows XP and has an intel GM965 embedded graphics card, was able to run the Chrome demo, but not the game itself...until today. Now it works. Yay!!!

Thank you brave bug hunters and committed coders!!!

Thanks for the quick hotfixes! Game booted flawlessly (Windows XP 32-bit) the first time after the hotfix finished. It's nice to see you guys working so hard to squish bugs, even for the minority of us still using Ancient Windows. ;)

It still doesn't work on windows 8, sorry if I might be annoying, I know fixes take some time, but it could also be, that the devs didn't see that bug.

It has fixed quite a few people's problems:

Hello,

After this new update, I noticed that several people besides myself had many problems, one of them is the game close after it is opened.

For me it was resolved as follows:

1 -) Open the folder C: \ Program Files \ Steam \ steamapps \ common \ dont_starve \ VCRedist and install vcredist_86x (or other name) (*86x for me but my pc is 64x*).

2 -) Open the folder C: \ Program Files \ Steam \ steamapps \ common \ dont_starve \ DXRedist and install DXSETUP.

After doing these two steps run the game again * In my case it worked, not only my friend but also a *

Sincerely,

Mizu.

Wow. That fixed it for me too. Thanks everyone!

Some people have been having issues running the new Steam release of the Don't Starve Early-Access Beta. While there is one particular issue that is caused by having outdated video card drivers, that's not the case with everyone.

We'll be looking at any crash reports or issues with launching Don't Starve on Tuesday when we return to the office after the holiday. In the mean time, if you are experience problems loading or playing the new Steam version, there's a few things that will really help us out.

1) Make sure your video card drivers are updated MANUALLY. Sometimes the auto / windows update will say you are current, when you are not. Check your manufacturers website. This will fix some people's problems on the spot.

2) If your drivers are up to date, please let us know your full PC hardware specs.

3) Paste us any error messages or crash logs you encounter. If they're really long, you can use a service like
.

We'll still be doing our best to respond to any issues over the long weekend, and once we're back in the office we'll be able to push a new build!

Hi everyone:

My game does the same thing, although I have a dell inspiron m5030 windows 7. It worked fine until this recent update. Now when I try to play it says it is not responding but windows can never find a solution to the problem. Any known bugs or solutions would be helpful. Thanks

Tried the 2-step method with VCredist and stuff, tried uninstalling and re-installing. Still just goes to black screen with theme music. I'm on XP NVIDIA Geforce8800gt I believe. Worked before last patch, but not anymore. Any news?
