Issue title

Cannot Launch Game

Steps to reproduce

Try to Start the Game

Describe your issue

I bought Don't Starve off of steam, and i sent the copy to a friend and we both downloaded it, his worked fine, but when i tried to start mine using my desktop icon it would say (one of the pictures below), if i started it from the play button in steam it would just be a white box for a second and disappear, not to mention my desktop is a little earth when it is supposed to be Wilson's head, btw my friend showed me his screen of him playing it via skype, so i know it should work. So i got a picture of the icon, the message that pops up when i use the desktop link, and the property sheet for the link, if i replace the name of the shortcut to rungameid219470 (dont starve) it changes the symbol of the link to wilsons head, but it still doesnt do anything, i couldnt get a picture of the white screen though because it is to fast.

Note: Sorry, i cannot attach any pictures, it sais i donot have permission. Hopefully you can easily fix the glitch just by reading what i have wrote, or you will email me for further communication and i can send u the pictures.

I am also having this issue on my laptop, but I'm look for the right place to post this so I hope the devs see it.

I have Intel graphics, but I tried the glcrash version to no avail. I'm not sure if mine is a video or permissions issue, but if it matters, I did try running the app as administrator (win7) and under win xp sp 2 according to the suggested compatability settings. This is what comes up in the crash dump:

Seems like theirs an issue with Intel Graphics & Don't Starve. I hope they get it fixed Soon :/, hopefully the next update in 7 days will have the bugfix in it?, i hope they also do something about getting keys off of steam to, i think that you should get a key for playing online on Chrome if you buy it from steam.
