MSFS will no longer start

up until the other day MSFS was working fine but as of yesterday it will not start at all.
When I try to start the sim with any of the shortcuts, menu, desktop icon or task bar…
I get nothing… the pc doesn’t do anything, not even the cpu temps change in the slightest. Its like the game is no longer installed which isn’t the case as it is indeed still on my SSD.

I find this quite coincidental that this issue arose on the day of the supposed “update”
Maybe Microsoft has broken the game.

Anyone else experiecnce this issue? I have tried repairing the game, resetting the sim, running it from the store… nothing works.
Should I attempt a complete wipe and reinstall?

Have a try with this one
