      Description

      The new launcher won't launch any profile of the game for me. Upon pressing "Play," the launcher either crashes or sits on "Preparing" and must be closed to try again.

      What I expected to happen was...:
      The game should launch when "Play" is pressed

      What actually happened was...:
      The launcher either crashes or displays a progress bar with "Preparing" which never advances (even after being allowed to sit for 15-20 minutes).

      Steps to Reproduce:
      1. Start Launcher
      2. Press Play
      3. BOOM

      This happens with both Vanilla and Optifine profiles which both worked up until the last time I played on this computer (a few days ago). I tried creating a new Vanilla 1.11.2 profile as well to test, and it still gets stuck at the "Preparing" progress bar. It seems like when I try to play with Optifine it just crashes outright, when Vanilla it sits and hangs.

      From the Launcher Log (Vanilla):

      If I do this from Optifine (I know you don't support it, but there's no 'errors' in the Vanilla log, so.... maybe the data will help):
