FlightSimulator.exe is now 16bit? "Unsupported 16-bit application" on startup

Thank you. That worked for me a s well.

That’s affecting all games I have on Xbox, I’m pretty annoyed by this since I reverted to the last update and it stopped working after a day again even without the update.

It is now working again after leaving anything related to Insider Program and after restarting the PC, hope this won’t stop working again.

Do you have the same issue if you follow the OP’s steps to reproduce it?

Hello everyone, unfortunately I have the same problem since yesterday. I downloaded the latest updates for Win 11 and now the Flight Sim does not start anymore. Supposedly because of the 16 bit variant. I have read that Win 11 x64 does not support 16 bit anymore, but the game requires a 64 bit architecture. Can someone help me?

Best regards Patrick
