    System specs:

    • Fresh Windows 10 installation
    • Intel i5 3570k CPU
    • AMD RX 480 GPU
    • 8GB DDR3 1600MHz RAM
    • 128GB Samsung Evo SSD / 1TB Western Digital HDD
    • Asus P8Z77-I Delux/WD motherboard


    Reinstalled Windows 10, downloaded and installed Adrenalin 2020 Edition 21.2.3 graphics card drivers. Games from other sources work totally fine, ie. Team Fortress 2 installed through Steam.


    Whenever I launch a game Minecraft for Windows 10, Roblox, Cities Skyline through the Microsoft Store, the game opens for a couple of seconds and then closes without any explanation.


    I've tried all the basic troubleshooting steps like reinstalling the games, clicking reset on the apps in the Microsoft Store, but nothing has worked so far.
