@kuzu420 I've split your post into its own thread, since the previous thread is a few years old.
Please make sure .NET framework 3.5 is enabled on your computer; it's often off by default in Windows 10. To check, hit Windows key-R, type "appwiz.cpl" without quotes into the box, and enter. On the left of the File Explorer window that appears, click on the words "Turn Windows features on or off." You should see something like this:
The .NET frameworks are in the first red box. If 3.5 is off, enable it, and try to launch the game.
If this doesn't help, try temporarily disabling your antivirus/firewall, just long enough to see whether it makes a difference.
If this doesn't help either, please run a dxdiag and attach it to a post here.
