there's a work around for the problem you're seeing.
Navigate to the following directory:
Locate the following file:
Open this file in Notepad or another text editor
Search for and change the "WindowStyleFinal=1" option to 0 or 2.
0 = Windowed
1 = Fullscreen (default)
2 = Windowed Fullscreen
0 and 2 should both allow the game to start.
