Launching Microsoft Apps error “0x80070102” on Windows 11 – Microsoft Simulator

Helping a friend with an issue on a new computer with Windows 11 and getting the “0x80070102” error when launching Microsoft Simulator.

After doing all the normal steps like resetting the app, Microsoft store app reset, Xbox app reset I remembered an issue with the time being off from another computer where chrome was giving website errors. And sure enough the computers time was off. I set the time to automatic time in the settings and the game came right up with no trouble.

So in the end check on your date and time settings when dealing with the 0x80070102 error or any error with Microsoft Store or games.
