Cannot Play Game - Getting Warning!

  • Closed

Hello - When I start the game I get the below error with only two options:  Exit Game and Forum button.  I do have the Don't StarveDon't Starve Reign of Giants, Don't Starve Together and Don't Starve: Shipwrecked.  I've attached a screenshot of the error I am getting.  This error started appearing a little over a week ago.

Thank you for your help.


Steps to Reproduce
On Windows 7, double-click Don't Starve icon. Select one of the Don't Starve CD key (I have 3 different keys for DS). Click on the Play button. That's it...I get the above error. I don't ever get to the Don't Starve UI, I immediately get the above error. I have tried restarting my computer as well.
