Have a look at this solution.

I deleted the pictures you attached because they revealed part of your RealFlight and InterLink serial numbers. But what they showed of the error messages was very helpful!

The good news is that RealFlight 7/7.5 will absolutely run on Windows 10. It sounds to me like one of two things happened: either the Windows upgrade process deleted some files it shouldn't have, or an antivirus program incorrectly viewed some things as malicious and quarantined them. The latter has certainly happened on occasion.

Your best bet is to contact RealFlight Technical Support. They are very practiced at helping people who are not especially PC-savvy, and I expect they can work with you to get in there and solve this problem. (If they get really stuck they'll come to me, but by then they'll have a lot more details about the situation.)

Though written for RealFlight 8, the "Problem #1" portion of the post asj5547 linked to may be helpful to you if you want to tackle it on your own. The "Problem #2" portion would not apply to RealFlight 7, however, and can be completely ignored.

RF 7.5, 8, and 9 are all working for me on Win 10 and it's updated to the latest June 2020 release (2004). So follow what Ryan said and if you still have trouble call the support line at the number below. They do a great job getting people up and running.
