Nope, didn't work. The game is still requires dwmapi.dll, which is a part of Windows Vista. (And newer versions of Windows)

well i guess they will fix it for us or will xp users not be able to play it anymore

[ATTACH]517[/ATTACH] Kevin, I do not have any of those files except for a log file from my game from yesterday, I'll attach it though.

I hopefully am wrong.

Also some specs:

Windows Xp

SP3

log.txt

No good. Re-installed both of those (VCR and DX) and the same thing is happening: the game won't even attempt to launch. Running the .exe from out of Steam still gives the "missing .dll" error.

Yeah. Unless launching the game through Steam on XP works around the issue of needing dwmapi.dll somehow, I'd say that's most likely the problem.

Steam is not capable of imposing files from newer versions of Windows over earlier versions.

To the Devs: The game now requires files from Windows Vista or newer. The game is 100% unable to start on Windows XP machines, and therefore cannot give an updated log.txt file. Any log.txt files you receive from players who have Windows XP will be from the previous update when the game did work.

EDIT: This is not meant to sound harsh, but re-reading it makes it seem that way. That isn't my intention.

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.

It may be a decade old, but I would say that it is the most proven of all Microsoft products. There is a reason why most financial institutions use it.

That being said it is an old system, so I would understand if you dropped support for it, but that decision should have been made prior to saying you support it.

I meant something more along the lines of a command that disabled whatever it was that required the .dll file, but it apparently didn't anyway, so it's kind of a moot point. :-P

They can't really drop it right now if it was already stated that it doesn't support XP from the beginning XP users wouldn't have bought the game

Issue title

game crashes on Windows XP

Steps to reproduce

My game doesn't work on windows XP

Describe your issue

I already played the game in my pc and it worked very well, but when i updated the game (11/25 or 26/12 update), it simply doesn't want to start because Windows XP doesn't have a functional dwmapi.dll version.

Please help me.

Thanks for reading.

good. I was really sad because I'd heard of this game and bought it, loved it, played it two days then this. I thought I'd messed up somehow. I guess it's just a waiting game now...

Running Windows 8 Professional right now. I am having a similar issue to those running Windows XP. When I attempt to start the game (steam), It brings the window up, then displays the "dontstarve_steam.exe has stopped working" dialog box. I've attempted to delete and re-install the local content several times, to no avail. Let me know what additional information I can get for you to resolve this issue. I located a log file in the common files, and pasted it below, but I don't know if it's relevant to this issue or not. Thank you.

Additionally, this only occurred after the most recent update.

Same here. My operating system is Windows 8 and this dialog box shows up:"dontstarve_steam.exe has stopped working". Already tried re-installing but I've got the same issue again and again.

It would be cool if you guys can fix this problem, but I know you also got other issues to fix. :)

The main Windows XP crash should be fixed in revision 69781 which has just been pushed live.
