Your Microsoft Surface Go or other computer/Tablet may be setup with Windows in S mode, which is designed for exclusively running apps from the Microsoft Store. In order to run FlexiCAD and other apps that are not in the Microsoft Store, you’ll need to switch out of S mode.

  1. On your PC running Windows 10 in S mode, open Settings and open Update & Security
    Windows settings with Update & Security circled
  1. Select the Activation tab on the left side of the screen, and select ‘Go to the Store’ in the Switch to Windows 10 Home or Switch to Windows 10 Pro section. (If you also see an “Upgrade your edition of Windows” section, be careful not to click the “Go to the Store” link that appears there.)
