paint.net 5.1.8421 from Microsoft store fails on startup

My paint.net continues to fail on startup.  I've tried rebooting, and updating the program from the Microsoft store.  Was running 5.0.8410 which also was failing in the same way based on the "event viewer".  I don't know what else to do since I'm running Windows 10 S so I can only load apps from the store.

Unfortunately, because I am running in S mode, I can't run any program that isn't loaded from the store.  See attached screenshot.  I could turn S mode off but it is a one-way switch.  Once off, no turning back on.  Paint.net used to work until recently, and I would expect anyone else running windows 10/11 in S mode will have the same problem.  I like the extra security of S mode and I might have to get another computer just to get paint.net working if no one has a solution since I really need paint.net for work.
