After patching to 1.5.6 today (11/24/14), upon selecting "PLAY" on the splash screen (ESO Launcher, BethesdaLauncher.exe), the game never actually launches. The play button goes grey, then lights back up becoming available again to select play. The game does not launch at all.
My resource monitor shows a start up of heavy disc activity after pressing play, along with some network and CPU activity - but no ESO process that would normally appear.
I have tried restarting, powering off for 10 minutes, and repairing (through the bethesda launcher), none of which resolved my issue.
What am I doing wrong that the game no longer opens after this patch?
