Error when install PlatformIo in Visual Studio Code

I’m getting this error when tried to install it in Visual studio Code.

Error: Traceback (most recent call last):
File “C:\Users…platformio.cache\tmp.piocore-installer-73w43ygo\tmp2w25yt9o\\pioinstaller\”, line 199, in find_compatible_pythons

subprocess.CalledProcessError: Command '[‘C:\Users\…\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WindowsApps\python3.exe’, 'C:\Users\…\.platformio\.cache\tmp\…

What cause this issue?

Do not use Microsoft’s fake python3.exe version to install PlatformIO. Already discussed in I can't install platfomio in the last version 2.3.0 and related.
