Someone's bound to have posted this somewhere in the forums, but after 3 hours of poring through forums, I'm super-done with doing more research.

I was on Windows 8, and League functioned fine on my computer. Yesterday, I updated my OS to Windows 8.1. Ever since, League has refused to launch. I'd double-click the launcher, and it would give me the LEAGUE OF LEGENDS banner, but never launch the PvP.net window.

I've tried compatibility mode.
I've tried restarting the computer.
I've tried running it as administrator.
I've tried deleting the launcher folders to force LoL to re-make a new one.
I've re-installed the game, using compatibility mode on the installer.

I'm out of options. Hopefully someone here knows the answer.

Default to failed trial #1.

Riot, please. Look into this problem. Quick-fixes are good for some, but there are structural issues with this game's compatibility with some operating systems that are denying those that love League access to the game.

I Run Windows 8.1 just fine so your argument is invalid.

There's a distinction between Windows 8 and Windows 8.1

If you're going to make my arguments invalid, at least have some absurd photo like a goose that looks strangely like Will Ferrell to supplement your post. At least then you'll be funny if you're not helpful in the least.
