I just bought a new gaming pc that runs windows 10. I then downloaded  X-Plane through the installer, and when I tried to run x plane, it didn't open and a windows notification said that x plane isn't compatible even though the x plane website says it is compatible with windows 10. How should I fix this issue?

Hi srk1234,

I am not with Laminar Research; just a flight simmer.

I think the version you have, according to the log file is 11.21 and not 11.0.21 as you have indicated.

When you run XP are you running it as the administrator?  If not try it as it has fixed your same problem you are experiencing as for others.

Move your X-Plane folder out of OneDrive folder and try again.
