VALORANT NOT launching After pressed "Play"

I wanted to play Valorant So I downloaded It with a old installer and then when i Installed it, a popup to update it to the newest version came, after I did it I pressed "Play" and it didnt popup and showed a compatibility error and then after I fixed it, I still wasnt able to play the game, I tried reinstalling Valorant and restarting the vgc service LIKE EVERYTHING on youtube STILL it wasnt fixed
