PC Terraria not launching on new PC


Steam or GOG
Single Player/Multiplayer
Operating System
Windows 10
Terraria Version
Controls Used
I got a new pc about a year ago and decided a few days ago to play terraria on it, so I installed the game and for some reason when I try to launch it, it asks me if I would allow steam to make changes to my computer. when I press yes it tries to download Microsoft XNA 4.0, which I already have along with the .NET framework. Then the installer closes and steam goes 3 seconds of saying the game is running and stops. I have no idea why it does this. There is no error message. I also have never launched the game on my current device, so there is no config file. (also this might not contribute to the problem but I'm running windows 11)

Processor AMD Ryzen 5 3600 6-Core Processor 3.59 GHz
Installed RAM 8.00 GB
System type 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor


Edit: I found a video with files that made the game run after doing the XNA thing, and I am glad to be able to play again. Hope the video I found helps!
