Crash on startup, won't attempt to even open a window

When i click on the exe/shortcut nothing happens. The mouse pointer seems to "load" a little bit but nothing happens after.

Win 10 64-bit (19041.vb_release.191206-1406)
i5-4460
16 GB DDR3 RAM
GTX 1060 6GB (latest drivers)

List of things I've tried:
1. Rebooting (several times)
2. Running as admin, both Steam and the .exe directly from the folder
3. Running in compatibility mode
4. Disabling all security sofware
5. Updating GPU and Windows drivers
6. Making sure the game is using dedicated GPU in Nvidia control panel
7. Uninstalling and redownloading from scratch
8. Moving to SSD
9. Veryfing game folder
10. Crying
11. Clearing %appdata%temp
12. Running DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command in cmd
13. Running sfc /scannow command in cmd
14. Installing the latest Visual C++ 2015-2019
15. Manually putting ucrtbase.dll from system32 to game folder
16. Deleting videos from the game folder
17. Disabling my sound devices
18. Booting Windows into safe mode with networking and trying to launch it from there
19. Manually checking every .dll connected to the .exe in Dependency Walker and making sure I'm not missing any
20. More crying

It was caused by a non standard ASCII character in the Windows account name. Either make a new Windows account using only standard characters or wait for a fix.
