I've just tried installing the Adventures of Shuggy demo on Steam, but unfortunately it crashes immediately after launch with the message

Shuggy has stopped working

Here's a screenshot of how the crash looks like:

shuggy crash

Upon examining Windows event viewer logs, I see that a .NET runtime error was reported:

Application: Shuggy.exe
Framework Version: v4.0.30319
Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception.
Exception Info: System.IO.FileNotFoundException
at Shuggy.Program.Main(System.String[])

My usual approach for launch errors of Steam games, validating the local file integrity, didn't help. Does anyone know how to address this issue? System is Windows 7 64-bit.

I had the same issue, and installing the redistributables from the install directory fixed it for me.

Unfortunately, this does not solved the crash I am experiencing. – Oak Aug 13 '12 at 19:42
