Not able to start/launch MSFS


Microsoft Store version

New install; empty community folder


New install; not able to run the program; error window poped up saying cannot access the file or path; see picture attached

i7 9700K
RTX 3090
64GB DDR4 3200
500 M.2 SSD
Windows 10 21H1

Any help is appreciated!

Is that trying to run from the start menu or from the file?

Tried from menu; tried from store…none works…

what’s interesting is that I can’t run anything which was installed from MS store…that includes my Forza 4 too. So I’m thinking the issue might have something to do with corrupted OS or MS Store.

Sounds pretty likely
