UWP application is not running on simulator

VaibhavMVaibhavM USMember ✭✭

Hello guys,
I have created UWP app. As I am going to run the application on the "simulator", it throws an error. I have attached the screenshot of the error window.
Please help if someone has solution for this.

Thank you.

    There is no "simulator" when executing an UWP app on Windows 10. It is executed on the host W10.
    Try to log on another account than the one you are using, it may be related to a known problem with built-in administrator account (see http://www.mynetworks.me/2015/08/02/windows-10-built-in-administrator-account-issues/ for example).

    I know it's been 3 years but I have this problem also, and running both VS and Simulator as Admin solved it for me.

    The message tell all thing you need. Run as Admins
    Right Click on Visual Studio shortcut -> Properties -> Advanced -> Check the box Run As Administrator.
    Then every time you double click on VS shortcut, it will Run As Administrator.
