After an hour of troubleshooting I realized what was making my projects not run. My family name has an ä character. Me, being a moron, used the character when making a profile on my computer.
The default path for VS projects is C:usersetc. thus including the ä character in the filepath. Took me more time than I'd like to admit troubleshooting this...
