Hi to the community

I'm sure this matter has been exhaustively discussed, not only here on BleepingComputer but almost everywhere as this is a known issue in Win10, but I couldn't find a thread completely related to this here.

If there is a good thread relating to this post in which I should be posting this, I will be glad to.

Anyway, I run a Windows 10 64-bit and performed the anniversary update just yesterday, which saved a computer that was almost dying with a 2015 version of Win10 (audio service was shutting down for no reason, NTFS BSOD errors all the time preventing from booting, needing startup fix, non-working start menu and other goodies)

After the update, everything was fine, except for metro apps. These were working previous to the update, but now, opening them, including the Windows Store app, just make them flash for a second and close, with no error message.

I researched this deeply, and found lots of fixes. The most comprehensive compilation of fixes for this issue can be found here:


I've tried all of those. None worked. I had the same errors as the first person who answered on the link I posted (answer by user

Does anyone knows a fix other than those posted on that link? I can't perform a clean install or restore the system just because of these apps, as I have roughly 300GB of software installed, a lot of which I don't have the installation media anymore, but I sure need the calendar and calculator apps running so... bummer.

I thank in advance anyone who might provide an answer.

P.S.: I can provide logs if needed. Just tell which ones I need to track down.

Best regards,
Lucas Almeida

As stated before, I don't get error messages. Opening the Metro/Modern Apps (Windows Store, Weather, Email, Calculator, etc.) just make them open for a few seconds and close automatically, without error message.

I noticed that I posted the wrong link on the OP. This is the link with the solutions I tried: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/insider/forum/insider_wintp-insider_store/troubleshooting-windows-10-pc-metro-apps-not/29fb735f-1511-442a-a1c7-eb081e7524d9?tm=1455316080246

Thanks again.
