Unable to setup storage point

I have AoE DE on Steam but every time I launch the game I get this error popup along with about a dozen other similar messages.

I tried uninstalling, reinstalling, running as administrator, verifying game cache, installed to a different drive, reset windows store cache. Nothing worked.

I have no problem running any other game (including the new AoE 2 DE). My computer is up to date and greatly exceeds system requirements as well.

Can anyone help with this?

@keet1xbox Would you please post a screenshot of the error you are receiving when launching Age of Empires: Definitive Edition?

There are about twenty other popups that follow…
