I dont know if it was adding each EXE in the folder to my allowed apps list or what, but its finally working. Thank you for your advice

Have you set your "steamapps" and/or "PHANTASYSTARONLINE2_NA_STEAM" folder as an exclusion in Windows Security? Even if you have it deactivated, Windows Security (and any other anti-virus or firewall) can sometimes kill Gameguard.
When i checked, it looked like it did that automatically. Is there a specific somewhere or something i havce to do for gameguard in particular? would it be under a different name? I've already allowed the whole folder past my AV
I just downloaded the game on steam, but it wont let me on. The launcher starts, it updates any everything, but when i hit Start Game, it shows the GameGuard window for a split second and closes outright. I've tried deleting the windows store version, i've tried messing with settings, but i dont know why it keeps failing to launch.
