Unable to launch the game, stuck on an infinite loop of launcher

Content of the article: "Unable to launch the game, stuck on an infinite loop of launcher"

(This is my first time dealing with Skyrim modding, Skyrim on pc at all, for that matter, and this sub, so I apologize in advance if I'm a little slow here)

So I'm on windows 10 and I've got Skyrim Legendary Edition, or Oldrim, or classic or whatever you wanna call it for steam, but I'm a bit stuck. When I first installed the game, I was able to launch it and play it no troubles. Then I went and got Nexus Mod Manager and Skyrim Script Extender and commenced modding. Got everything configured, everything in what I think was the right load order, and I go to launch the game. Launcher boots up fine, then when I click play, it asks if Skyrim can have permissions. I click yes, launcher closes, and then just opens again. I try again, this time clicking no, and it asks if SkyrimLauncher.exe can have permissions. I say yes to this, same thing. Try again, say no to both, just stays on the launcher. Launch it with Script extender, same thing. Launch it with the mod manager, same thing. Run as administrator, same thing. Disabled all my mods, same thing. Disabled the dlcs, same thing. Pretty sure I tried every way to launch the game but was just greeted with the launcher > permissions > launcher infinite loop every time. What exactly is it that I'm doing wrong here?

Mod list is, not in load order: (some of these seem to be lesser known, if that makes any difference)
