Also add what you already tried so far.
I have attempted to completely remove and reinstall FiveM, but with no success. I run into the same issue. Restarting my PC does not help or fix anything. I have even attempted to explicitly run FiveM without admin privileges (by using a registry entry that adds run without privilege elevation as a dropdown menu option), but I am met with the same error.
