Cannot launch Comsol 5.6 (unexpected error)

  comsol, windows

After installing Comsol 5.6 on Windows 10 build 20H2, when I try to launch it I keep getting an error saying "an unexpected error occured. see the end of log file for details"

the log file lists:

I can’t really understand what is going on here. searched internet with no luck. Has anyone encountered an error like this before?
