Have you tried opening the launcher Safe Mode with Networking or a Clean Boot? Does the launcher open in either of these modes.
Thanks for your patience.
Just tried booting in Safe Mode with Networking and running the game, no luck. Result is exactly the same = windows cursor changes to wait hourglass for a moment, then after 5-8 seconds the Launcher.exe process shuts down with no indication of what went wrong.
