Updated to Win 10, now game won't start. Originally was looking for 2 missing dll files, but running in compatability mode got it past that. Now says "Application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b)." Tried running as admin, and setting compatability as Win 7 and Win 8. This is with the Steam version, tried deleting local content and re-installing as well.
1. Download this program called "Dependancy Walker": (external link removed - pevergreen)

2. Use DW to open your game's .exe file.

3. Any of the DLL's that you are missing are highlighted in red on the top left of the program. Download these DLL's and place them in your game's folder.

4. Run your game.

And voila! That did the job for me anyway :)
