1. What is the "Uninstall this app now because it isn't compatible with Windows 10" error?
"Uninstall this app now because it isn't compatible with Windows 10" is a fairly common error on Windows 10. This message appears when you open an application on the computer, the user cannot use the application. Sometimes the system not only displays the above message, but also comes with the error code Error Code 0xc1900208. The cause of this phenomenon is that when updating Windows, from Windows 7 to Windows 10, for example, there will be some software that is not compatible with the new version of Windows, so it needs to be removed. The application that encounters this error is usually VirtualBox.


However, you have already uninstalled that application, or checked in the settings, you don't see that application but the error message still shows up, so what to do? The reason you don't have VirtualBox installed but still showing the error message is because this is virtual computer software, although you don't have VirtualBox installed, many emulator applications already use this software in the background so they can work properly.

You perform each of the following methods in turn, this method is not effective, then move on to the next method.
