Microsoft FLight Siimulator Issue when opening it up

I purchased the Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 (Premium Deluxe Edition).

When I try to open the game it crashes with the following error:

C:\Program Files\ WindowsApps\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_1.11.6.0_x64_8wekyb3d8…\FlightSimulator.exe

The request is not supported

However, when I run it as administrator it lets me get in the game but then crashes right away.

My specs can run the simulator, I have an Nvidia 2070 and dan Intel I7 9th Gen

Please help!

That sounds like something that needs to be reported to Zendesk.

Here are two of the articles from the Support website (support link in the top bar):

Thanks, guys for all the help but I realized it was probably an issue with the Microsoft store. SO, I ended up getting a refund from them and purchasing the app from Steam. Now, the app works like a gem! Once again, thank you!
