Today I clicked the launcher, and it did an update then stopped working, I reinstalled both the launcher and java, changed folder for the launcher, changed compatibilities with all version of windows back to xp, and even modified some mumbo jumbo thing in advance system settings for java, nothings works

worse of all, there is no log file, when starting the launcher, it doesn't even show up in the task manager, there is just a little hourglass next to the pointer for a couple of seconds, then nothing, I am running windows 8.1 and yesterday it worked fine.
Somebody has an idea of the problem or how I can solve it ?
Ps: english is not my main language so I apologize for my bad writing

ok I found the solution after some digging, the problem was an old file back from the 2015 , where most of the people reported the problem, it caused the crash after N times that you start the launcher, you need to delete all the .minecraft folder, after a backup of the worlds, then reinstall the last version and it should work, I didn't count that I restarted playing just 3 days ago as a factor fro my problem.

Hoping that someone find a solution for their problem thanks to my post, I will not delete it
