Launcher Crashes Immediately

So I actually posted about this yesterday, but because the search function has been removed I can't find the old thread that I had created.

I downloaded the swtor_setup.exe yesterday and tried to run the launcher to download the game client, but before the launcher opened up the entire process crashed. I know that some people have had the launcher crash but see it still running in their background processes, but in my case the entire thing disappears.

Today I got my CE in the mail and tried to do an install vis-a-vis the disks, but no dice. Once I installed the game and tried to run the launcher, the exact same thing happened. The launcher will show up in my task manager for maybe a second before completely crashing.

Just once I have gotten an actual error message from my computer saying that launcher.exe has crashed, and this is what it said:

I am no good with computers, so I can't make heads nor tails of all of this. I am hoping someone here on the internet can.

I really want to be able to give you guys my money, Bioware, but at this rate I don't think I'll even be able to.
