Windows GMS2 desktop closes while trying to launch

I just bought GMS2 desktop through steam, and after installing, I had to log in. I also linked my steam with yoyo-games website.

So, after doing all that, I launched the game, and it got to a point in the "installation" within the game, and it suddenly just closes the program.

After that I restarted my computer, and I downloaded the game through yoyo-games also, and the very same thing happened. The program just closes without any messages.

I'm running Windows 10.

Any ideas?

Best regards

Ilari

It supports DX12, my drivers are up to date. It's so frustrating, since it just exits the program when doing that "installation" thingy in the launcher. No error messages or anything.

Whoops. Was meant to write.
"Check that you have DX11 installed"

I don't know what DirectX11 version would be needed to be installed for it to run, or if it's even necessary since you have DX12. Best bet would be just to install the latest version of DX11 (If it even gets updated?)

I think this might be the right link.

Edit: I realised this is probably pointless. Steam should've already done that task for you (I think).

If it hasn't automatically installed the files, you can do it manually:
Go into your steam apps folder -> common -> Game maker -> redist. (iirc)
There, you'll find files required to run game maker I believe. (Well, this is the case for games)

I don't own GMS2. This is the process I'd do if a steam game wasn't working.

dxdiag shows what dx is supported, and it includes 11.
