Can't Join Or Create A Home Group

Sep 4, 2015

I'm having problems a PC that I upgraded to win 10. All seemed to work well until I did a clean install of Win 7 on my second PC and tried to reconnect the PCs via homegroup.As I began to setup the fresh Win 7 PC, I discovered I couldn't join the existing homegroup. Seemed reasonable, so I left all homegroups but found that the new homegroup on Win 7 couldn't be joined by Win 10 and I can't create one on Win 10. Network discovery is enabled on both but when I checked running services on Win 10, I found that Peer Network Grouping could not be started "on local machine" Error Code 1068). Network Discovery and IPv6 are enabled, etc.

In Network view, Win 7 can access the NAS as can Win 10, but they cannot access each other. I don't want to revert back to Win 7, but the thought of having to manage all file transfers through my NAS as an intermediary is undesirable. I should have added that I had run the troubleshooters on both PCs and no problems were found by either the network or homegroup troubleshooters. PC 1 is running Windows 7 Home Premium and PC 2 is Win 10 with all updates.When I first upgraded to Win 10 on PC 2, I was able to connect to homegroup, However, when I did a fresh install of Win 7 on PC 1, I have had this homegroup problem. As I recall this also affected my ability to share printer on Win 10 PC.

Cannot Delete Or Create A New Home Group

Aug 13, 2015

I have recently upgraded my workplace systems with windows 10. all the PC's except for one have been flawless.The last PC who created our homegroup has come up with an error. At first no matter what i did i couldn't get the other computers on the network to discover the PC even when connected to the homegroup. So i decided i would disconnect all the PC's from the homegroup and start again....

Once i had every PC left from the homegroup it now says the problem PC which created the homegroup in the first place is inviting me to join a homegroup!!! i now cannot connect even with the correct password and all the other PCS cannot connect to this ghost homegroup that no longer exists (or even the PC to that matter).

I have tried various fixes on the internet to no avail and i have used the method where you delete the files in C:WindowsService Profiles Local Service App DataRoamingPeerNetworking also to no avail... i now have every PC out of the homegroup and turned off and just this one PC.

Why Can't Start Native Apps While Having Account In Admin Group

Feb 5, 2016

I have a strange issue in Windows 10 Pro (Dutch). With my account (in Administrator group) I cannot start apps like 'Control panel', 'Paint', etc from the start menu. When I click just nothing happens: no window, no message, nothing. Only via desktop As Administrator works. Also apps like Bit Defender Security doesn't start automatically.

I tried to create a new account, but same issues. But, when I startup with the build-in Admin account (I enabled it temporarily) and switch to my own account (with Admin account open) everything works well! I expect that the issue is related to access controls or something.

My system: Intel Core i7-6700K; Asus Maximus VIII Ranger motherboard, Corsair Vengeance LPX Black 16GB DDR4-2666 CL16 kit, Geforce 980Ti, Samsung 950 Pro 256GB (NVMe m.2 SSD). Windows is installed from scratch, no update, on the 950 Pro SSD.

Apps :: Tile Apps Not Working

Aug 12, 2015

System restore fixed my problems,and now I am back to a almost fully functioning O.S,except the windows store is not able to download anything, I will probably not try to fix it on my own, the error code was and is the same(0x80070005)

I think the problem is related to the registry keys in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftInternet ExplorerMain being locked,I cant use regedit to change permissions(with admin too),regdelnull did not find the key so its not with embedded-null characters.

This key is preventing me from installing Skype and fixing Microsoft office,and some windows updates are failing because of it,saying I have no permissions.Well after lots of permission tikering I have managed to gain ownership of the registry and now office is able to install which means it works,sadly windows store is STILL not working... means that it is something else...

my first two installs failed,and this one was working,I managed to get all of my old personal files and it was fine and dandy,until I noticed that the windows store was not working.I spent 3 hours fixing it and it started opening, great!, but... I noticed it couldn't download anything ,and by trying to spam commands into cmd to fix the store,. I went into safe mode,did a system restore,booted up win 10 - blue-screened. (I have the logs,dmp files). Went into built in troubleshooter and did everything,and then... from the troubleshooter did system restore,from the same point AGAIN!

Now I booted up windows,desktop starts slower and usually requires me to run explorer.exe manually ,I was happy that it had finally seemed ok,until I found out that every single tile app was not working... Only mail,calendar and groove music works...How don't they work?Well the store closes in 1 second,the other apps say they can't open and redirect me to seek info in the store,oh and the tiles are grey.

How To Reinstall Mail - None Of Apps Will Launch From Start Tile Menu

Jun 20, 2015

I am running Windows 10 Build 10130 and none of the apps listed above will launch from the start tile menu or the all apps list. It appears that most of the apps that came with Win 10 won't launch but the apps that I pinned to the start menu work fine. Since I rarely used these apps I don't know how long this problem has been going on. I restored back to an earlier restore point but the problem is still there. I know it is something I screwed up but I can't figure it out.

Apps :: Weather Live Tile Works Properly But Opens Blank?

Jan 6, 2016

I am using Windows 10 Professional edition. Following some random Windows Update a few months ago, my default Windows 10 weather app (the one that can be pinned to the start menu) displays the temperature properly and updates regularly, however, if I click to open it, it opens blank....basically, the window is just the blue background with the little icon of the sun in the center.

This app used to work 100% before.Lastly, I remember my calendar app not opening at all when Windows 10 was fresh. It would immediately close upon opening the calendar app. However, following some random Windows Update, the calendar app started working properly.

I "upgraded" to Windows 10 from 8.1, but I did a FULL install and chose to "save nothing" from 8.1, so it is about as legit as it can get to being a full installation and not an upgrade.

PS, it doesn't seem to matter if I enable to disable background data for the Weather app in privacy settings. I have tried it out both ways, and either way, on or off, the live tile for the weather app still updates, but opens blank and won't show me the large view when I click on it.

I don't use any other apps, I have not downloaded any other apps from the app store, and I have deleted some of the apps that came with Windows 10. I prefer to use my web browser for most things.

Apps :: Cannot Create A New Event In Calendar App

Aug 31, 2015

My calendar app opens fine. I did the setup with adding accounts and I can view the calendar perfectly in any way I want (by month, day, etc.). As far as I can tell, everything is working except for the New Event button.

This is what it looks like:

The New Event button looks highlighted, even though my mouse is nowhere near that window. When I do mouse over it, nothing happens. If I mouse over the numbers on the calendar below it, they do get highlighted, but the New Event button does not. It's as though there's nothing there at all.

A calendar's useless to me if I can't put events on it. If I wanted to just see the chart, I'd just click the time on the taskbar.

Or perhaps if there is an app in the Windows Store (for free) that functions like this one should? I tried to find one, but they were all "view-only" calendars.

Apps :: Outlook And Word (Could Not Create Work File)

Sep 18, 2015

I'm getting two similar error messages when I try to open both Outlook and Word....

(Outlook / Word) could not create the work file. Check the temp environment variable.

Outlook is not opening at all, and Word will open at the second or third "OK" click on the error message.

I've spent the last 24 hours editing the registry, for both programs based on advice found online, but nothing has worked.

I'm using the Office 2013 versions of both programs (version 15 Outlook). How the registry should look for both programs, as this is preventing em from working (I'm self employed and use both programs all the time).

I saw that there's a workaround using IE, but it's not on my computer (only Edge). This keeps crashing when I try to open it, and I can't seem to get a download of IE, as Microsoft assume I have it already.

I tried a system restore several times but for some reason it won't work - I was even so desperate to fix it. I tried resetting the OS, but this also failed.

Add this to the problems of saving files in Word caused by Windows 10, and I have to say that for me, it wasn't a good choice to upgrade.

Apps :: Nitro Reader 3 Create PDF Locks Print Queues

Aug 4, 2015

From my experience on 2 Win 10 machines, beware of creating a pdf using Nitro Reader 3. On both machines the print function hung, and all print queues got stuck. Even a restart did not fix the problem (because, I presume, the issue was in the print queues themselves). The only way I found to resolve the issue was with a System Restore..... and this option is apparently turned OFF by default in Win 10.

For now, I suggest uninstalling Nitro Reader 3, and using the built in Microsoft Print to PDF instead. (Also turn on System Restore!) For reading PDFs, if, like me, you don't like Adobe Reader, Edge works fine!
