"failed to get a handle for file"

Issue: Citra “fatal error” when attempting to start up game
When I tried to initially install Pokemon Ultra Sun, the file was using the extension “.3ds.crdownload”. I went into properties, and removed the .crdownload from the end of the file. The game then appeared in the citra app. However, when I tried to start it, it gave me a fatal error.
