Getting E_FAIL in UWP after creating a new Xamarin Forms project

I created a new Cross Platform application with only UWP support and using a .net standard library.
When I run the application (in x86 or x64), I get an E_FAIL error.

`Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component.

at Windows.UI.Xaml.ResourceDictionary.put_Source(Uri value)

at Xamarin.Forms.Forms.GetTabletResources()

at Xamarin.Forms.Forms.Init(IActivatedEventArgs launchActivatedEventArgs, IEnumerable``1 rendererAssemblies)

at CoreBoard.UWP.App.OnLaunched(LaunchActivatedEventArgs e)`

It is failing on the line


I have seen a few other posts running into this error, but not a lot of solutions. What is the best way to troubleshoot this issue? Is it something on my machine or is there an inherent problem I running into?
