I think I've found a workaround
I just TWD from Steam on the summer sale and sadly, when I tried to open it, "WalkingDead101.exe has stopped working" slapped me in the face. After trying all the fixes I could find in the forums, nothing was working.
Go to your common game folder (i.e. C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common)
You should see all of your games listed there in the form of folders. Find The Walking Dead.
(this may vary depending on your OS, I'm using Win7 64bit)
Right Click on it and go to properties.
Click on the Security tab
Click the "Edit" button (under Group or user names)
Click the "Add" button
In the "Enter the object names to select" box, type "everyone"
click the "OK" button
Click the OK button again
Click the OK button one more time
Now, open the walking dead folder.
Right click the "WalkingDead101.exe"
select "Run as administrator"
It still doesn't open for me from steam, but at least I can play it. Hopefully you will have some luck with it as well.
For ease of use, do the following:
Navigate to your walkingdead101.exe
Right click it and select properties
Select the "Compatibility" tab
Under Privilege level, check off "Run this program as an administrator"
Now create a shortcut to the exe on your desktop
