Description
Launcher cannot access game data. Game cannot save, crashes to desktop (butler v2.8.1 dfce)

Game Version
butler v2.8.1 dfce

What version do you use?
Steam

What expansions do you have installed?
Synthetic Dawn, Utopia, Leviathans Story Pack, Apocalypse

Do you have mods enabled?
No

Please explain your issue is in as much detail as possible.
The launcher states that he cannot access game data and mod data, and the game crashes immediatly when I try to save a game. He displays the "save game"-message, the mouse-button rotates, and then I'm back at the desktop. When restarting the game, no save-game remains. There are also no autosaves in the saves-folder.

I've reinstalled, verified the game cache, deactivated windows firewall, virus scan, ransom-protect and made exceptions for stellaris, and I deactivated read-only restriction on the game folder. I also reinstalled the launcher and downloaded beta-launcher, and tried with and without steam-cloud. Nothing changes.

Tried to launch EU4 over steam, launcher now shows similar problems, but game works perfectly.

Steps to reproduce the issue.
Launch game. Start game. Try to save game.
