Windows GMS2 won't start after update

So, I have the same problem again, that I had when I bought GM2 from Steam.
When I launch the program, I will get the "installing runtime" thingy, and then the program just hard crashes. No error messages or anything. It just closes.

Any suggestions? I tried to "verify integrity of application files" in the property section, but it doesn't work.

I provide an image of what the screen looks like before it crashes.

Might be that the IDE pulled down the most recent runtime incorrectly.
Try deleting the runtime folder, located here: C:\ProgramData\GameMakerStudio2\Cache\runtimes. This should force the IDE to fresh install the runtime :)

Unfortunate enogh, it did not work. Have tried to install the non Steam version, but it still just closes. I'm glad that I'm not a professional game developer atm :O
