Just bought game - Crash to desktop on fresh installation of MSFS

Hello guys,

I just bought the game via steam and I am not able to open and play the game. This is really frustrating I don’t know what to do, please help me.

My current configuration is: Windows 10 Pro, all updates are up-to-date.
HP pavilion gaming laptop, AMD Ryzen 7 3750H 2.3GHz, graphics GTX 1660 TI 6GB with Max-Q design, 16GB of RAM, all drivers are up to date.

When I try to start the game from steam, it opens a window, there is this logo XBOX Game studios coming up and then the window minimizes and I can see the desktop and I hear a starting sound… then the window closes and that’s all. How can I make this to start?

I just bought today this game and really wanted to give it a shot.
