World of Goo keeps crashing on startup (w/ crash log)essential01/15/2009 - 18:17

I bought World of Goo a couple days ago when it was a amazon gold box special.  I got it today and installed.  The install was fine, but everytime I double click the icon to run the game the screen changes and looks like it's loading, but as soon as I touch my mouse it closes and goes back to my desktop.  Any ideas?

I just installed that v1.30 patch and it didn't do anything to help my issue.  I installed to the same directory I installed the game so I assume it overwrote stuff, was that correct?
