Application launch error - D2R

Hello, hoping for some help. I have spent hours trying to get Diablo 2 resurrected to run. It’s installed but when i hit run, i briefly get black screen and then it crashes with “application unexpected error. ”

I have gone in circles. I have uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times, I have turned off all the overlays and extra services, run as admin. I have checked my system requirements. I’m well above except my processor which isn’t an i3, but is a xeon with more cores, just lower speed. Assume that should allow it to launch. Can anybody please help me?
