Build Apps Not Opening

Jan 17, 2016

I have received the free update from Windows 7 to Windows 10.My issues originally started when the start menu with the apps on disappeared I researched the internet and managed to fix this by using Powershell and copying and pasting in some instrucitons

My computer has recently done an update and I am on build 10240 and now my apps do not work at all. I wish I could go back to WIndows 7 but am over the month where it allows you to which is very annoying as Windows 10 seems very I am to get my apps working again I have researched the internet and tried some fixes (including Powershell again) but to no avail The apps do not work - not in the start menu or in the all apps section.

Windows Apps Not Opening After Roll Back To Previous Build

Dec 21, 2015

After experiencing difficulties with the last windows update I decided to roll back to previous working build (10240). Now some of Windows 10's apps are not functioning. If I open e.g. Calculator, Photos or Store, the app's window will flash on the screen for a second or two before closing.

The effected apps also take a different appearance in the Apps & Features section of the settings with the "move" and "uninstall" buttons greyed out and the names being less user friendly, I've attached a screenshot below. Is there are way to get them restored?

Apps :: Keep Opening On Their Own?

Aug 4, 2015

I have been using WIndows 10 since they released it and one issue has been plaguing me since then. Whenever I leave my computer and come back after some time i will notice apps are opened sitting in my taskbar. The main apps that do it are Photo and Calendar.

I don't use those apps for either photo or calendar things and I am not even signed into Windows 10 with a MS account.

But every hour or so, these apps open up and hang out in my taskbar. I have even removed them from default apps and uninstalled what I could but no luck.

Apps Not Opening

Dec 22, 2015

I know this has been asked previously. I am working on a single user Toshiba laptop. Recently upgraded to Windows 10. Now none of the apps are opening. Tried the fix listed. There was a link to install bUT I cannot get to the Internet so I am unable to use the link provided. This machine came with pre-installed software so I cannot downgrade back to Windows 7.

Three weeks after upgrading from Windows 7 to 10 from Microsoft a message saying "Windows 10 Home Build 10240" appeared in the right-hand corner of my desktop last night. As I like to have a completely clear desktop. no icons etc. this is a nuisance.

Apps :: Build 10586 Broke RDP Wrapper

Nov 12, 2015

I was using RDP Wrapper:

RDP Wrapper Library by StasM Corp.

binarymaster/rdpwrap · GitHub

It allows a Remote Desktop Protocol session to log in as a separate user independent of the user logged in locally. Worked perfect until the 10586 update. Now it is "not supported"

I guess I could look at Team Viewer, but I loved RDP Wrapper because it added the capability I needed completely transparently to Windows 10.

Updates :: Cannot Find Newest Build After Rolling Back To Previous Build

Jan 29, 2016

So, recently (after the November build release) I woke the next morning to find that my computer underwent a rather major update. After which, it seemed, my home network was thrown out of wack. I immediately rolled/reverted/recovered to previous build. But now everything is out of wack. Most of the time I have to restart my computer just so it'll communicate with my printer to start printing.

And restarting the computer is twice as long if it restarts at all. Most of the time It gets stuck in the "restart" progress animates (the rotating circles) and I have to press the restart button on the computer tower, with great regret and dread. Transferring files from one windows 10 device to another is a 50/50 hit or miss. I'm not literate when it comes to networking and was super happy how everything was.

But now, not only is my wifi home network out of wack, but my computer itself is wonky. I figure I might as well reinstall the newest build in hopes that it'll at least fix a fe of the problems. But anytime I check for updates, the newest build no longer shows up.

Windows Apps Are Opening By Themselves

Aug 2, 2015

Just did the Windows 10 upgrade. It's buggy to say the least. I'm having an issue where my XBOX, WEATHER, STORE, MAIL, CALENDAR, and FEEDBACK apps open up by themselves like every 10 minutes. They all open at the same time. They don't pop up on screen but appear on my second monitor's task bar minimized.

Apps :: Windows Programs Not Opening

Aug 7, 2015

I have recently upgraded from 8.1 to windows 10 after it finish installing I reset my computer(Via the recovery tab). I then started installing my programs and everything was going well, but when I logged in the next day I couldn't open Task Manager or the admin command prompt(the normal one works fine), my windows update also takes forever to search for an update and nothing ever happens. It seems to be something wrong with the programs that require admin(I am the only user on the computer so I have administrator functions). I have some error messages but there are a few more. Here are a few: 'This program did not respond in a timely fashion', 'The service cannot accept control messages at this time' and I will attach a screenshot of the longest one.

Apps :: Error Messages When Opening Word

Oct 18, 2015

Any way to eliminate the error messages below when my neighbor opens Word, Excel or Powerpoint.

Background: I upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10. All went well and there were no problems. They had Office XP with Frontpage (yes that is old) loaded on Windows 7 and it worked fine. When you opened it there were no error messages after the upgrade was completed.

About a week later they wanted a clean install on the laptop because it had been awhile since they ever did that. I do a clean install, Windows 10 Activated successfully so now it was time to reload the applications.

After we loaded Office XP on the machine we started getting theses messages at the point it was loading. Eventually you would get to the application and it was fully functional.

I put the screen shots in the picture included in this post......

Apps :: Errors By Opening Task Scheduler

Aug 7, 2015

When I open the Task Scheduler, I get many error messages, which mostly resemble to "Task Name: The task object version is either unsupported or invalid" along with a few "The selected task 'Name' no longer exists. To see current task, click Refresh".

One thing I noticed, the tasks were all/mostly (I haven't fully checked) outside the "Microsoft" folder under "Task Scheduler Library" based on my research into the Registry Editor. I have also deleted a few with a back up for each, but, if I try to restore the registry files with elevated rights, I get an error message: "This app can't run on your PC - To find a version with your PC, check with the software publisher". This includes the "regidlebackup" task which I shouldn't have deleted, but it does not want to be restored.

I don't think this occurred before I upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7.Also, I could revert back to Windows 7, but the problem is if this issue would be solved by doing so.

Computer Specifications:
Dell, XPS 8300. Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40GHz 3.40GHz.
12 GB RAM, 64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor.

I have tried listing the tasks (before the changes in RegEdit) into a text file. For privacy, I have replaced my name by "????".


Due to no one responding after 2 days or so, I took the risk of deleting the entries corresponding to the tasks' name in the registry after having exporting each entry. So far, the computer seem to work even after a restart and the Task Schedule shows no error after being opened and the logs/windows in the middle also work.

From my guess, upgrading to Windows 10 failed to delete the old entries after re-arranging them in the registry.
