For the record, I definitely had the same problem with Ultimaker Cura 4.8.0 (3D printing slicing software) and was able to resolve it the same way. This indicates to me that this is really a Microsoft problem or an NVIDIA problem. Hopefully something one of them patches soon.
Stumbled into a solution - in Control Panel > System > Display > Graphics settings, under Graphics performance preference, I was able to add Blender to set a preference between "performance" and "battery life", which as near as I can tell is really just setting whether a given program uses the GPU or onboard graphics. I set Blender to "Power Saving" using this way, which specifically noted it will run on Intel UHD graphics instead of my RTX 2070 card. Blender now launches and seems to run.
May end up needing to try some previous version of the graphics drivers.
