    I got the same issue and had no idea why.
    However, I found a workaround to pass this test case.

    1. uninstall "Application Verifier x64 External Package-x64_en-us" in Settings -> Apps -> "Apps & features"
    2. delete HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE-> SOFTWARE-> Microsoft-> Windows NT-> CurrentVersion-> Image File Execution Options -> WUDFHost.exe
    3. reboot and retest
