Windows IDE v2.3.1.542 Runtime v2.3.1.409 won't run game after Windows update

I updated Windows recently and now no games from any project will launch for test runs. All projects that I know worked before the Windows update and it is not like I am getting a compile error. Pressing play or hitting F5 seems to have no effect on game maker. These are projects that were started in a previous version of GMS but have run them successfully since updating IDE just not after updating Windows. Screenshot of GMS right after I hit F5.

Any help appreciated.

How about Debug?

What are the contents of the output log when you run the game?
Thank you so much for your help. Nothing happens with Debug but here is the full output when I run via Build on the menu.

I unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it) can't see anything "obviously wrong" in the output log.

One thing I noticed, though, is that the project name contains a space. This has caused issues on some systems in the past, so I suggest removing the space and trying again.

Please also try to temporarily disable any security software (antivirus, firewall...) that may be preventing the game from running to see if that is the cause.
Given that this stopped working after a Windows update, please make sure to also check the default Windows security components (Windows Defender, Windows Firewall) as these may re-enable themselves during an update in case you had them disabled prior to the update.
Make sure to turn these back on after temporarily disabling them, because even if they are the cause, the ideal solution is not to disable them, but to add the relevant programs to their exclusion list so that they don't falsely prevent them from running anymore but are otherwise fully functional.

If you haven't tried it yet, please also try performing a fresh install of GameMaker Studio 2. We've had topics of Windows updates messing with the installation - or even outright force-uninstalling the entire program - after an update, and a reinstall was all it took to fix those.

2.3 works fine with the latest Windows update (using it myself) so I would take an educated guess that the update has re-enabled /changed something that is causing this issue.

Does your user account have Admin rights?
Does this happen with a fresh empty project too?

Also check that GMS2 and all it's related folders are still active in whatever anti-virus / system protection software you use - especially the built in Windows Defender as this could have been updated in the overall Windows Update.

Easiest way is just to disable the AV / protection software completely, reboot and test GMS2 again - if it then works you know what it's related to whatever you disabled so have narrowed down the possible culprits.

If none of the above apply try doing a full uninstall and clean any old files, then re-install again and see if that fixes the issue.
