Aurora R8, Nvidia control panel not functioning

I have a new Aurora R8 with i7 9700K, 32GB and Nvidia 2080 OC video card. The Nvidia control panel does not function. When selecting it in the task bar, it does nothing. At Startup I get a message to set up the video card with the control panel but it is non-functional. Cannot find in drivers to fix or repair.

Solution was to re-install the app from the Microsoft Store.  It is a free app.

Thanks.  Nice article but the NVidia Control Panel is not present in any of the areas shown on the Web Page but it shows in the Task Bar.  This is a brand new R8 machine and this issue started first thing.  I'll contact support.

That does not work at all on my rig.  Just bought a new Aurora 8 and re-installed countless times.... same error message.
