Okay I'll give the full rundown. I bought a new SSD last week and reinstalled my OS (Windows 10). PSO 2 refuses to work now. I have tried literally everything I can think of and nothing works. I have tried:
Installing via tweaker (I have used every troubleshooting option available and checked the files multiple times, same thing always happens game will not start)
Installing vanilla on a different drive other than primary (will not let me. Doesn't give an error or anything, I choose another drive from the drop down menu and hit the install button and nothing happens)
Installing on primary drive and then moving to another drive after install (gives me an error code "0x80070005" says "the operation did not complete successfully")
To say this is extremely frustrating is an understatement. Everytime I try to start the game a pop up box comes up and asks if its okay for this program to run and make changes to your system (I'm assuming this is the same as everything that runs as admin), then after that NOTHING. No error code, nothing running in the background thats in task manager or anything. I thought that maybe an old installation of the game could be mucking things up but I nuked all other instances of the game files from my system yesterday and still the game refuses to start.
