People were saying that a couple anti virus programs were causing that error. Though that could be an issue with network discovery being disabled by default on win 10

I did what you said and I get a bit farther before it locks up. I see press enter to start, the copyright and version but then it freezes again.

I've heard people are also freezing where the game updates the server version due to an antivirus issue, kinda sounds like that may also be your problem
