    Can't get Edge Browser on New Hard Drive Trial Period Expired!


    As I had a spare copy of Win 7 (upgrade version)

    I decided to configure a new Hard Drive (Which I have on swappable pull out trays)

    So to make sure there were no bugs or glitches, this is what I did.

    (1) Formatted the Drive

    (2) Clean Install of Win XP

    (3) Clean Install of Win 7 (To Upgrade XP to Win 7)

    (4) Using an Iso Disk I burned I then installed a free upgrade to Win 10 (which was accepted and registered by MS)

    Everything was fine except for one thing.

    When I try and use MS Edge, I get a banner on the Screen which says 'This App can't open, your trial period for this App has now expired.

    Visit the Windows Store to purchase the Full App

    Then there is a Link to go to the Store but there is no sign of an App for MS Edge!

    I don't understand what's going on here, so need some advice what to do.

    I've still got Edge on this Hard Drive but not on this other New Drive.

    Try this that I found it may work for you as I have had no trouble at all


    ***YOU MUST HAVE THE WINDOWS FIREWALL SERVICE RUNNING FOR THIS TO WORK***

    1. Find C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe
    2. Right-click and Run as Administrator
    3. Copy this line:

    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

    4. Right-click in the Powershell window to Paste and then press Enter.
    5. There is no need to restart. The fix should implement right away.

    If you have previously disabled Windows Firewall or do not have it running, the above steps will result in errors. Use the steps below to enable Windows Firewall and the reverse if you wish to turn it off again afterwards.

    1. Right-click the Start button -> Click Run
    2. Type Services.msc and press Enter
    3. Scroll down to find Windows Firewall
    4. Right-click then click Properties
    5. Under Startup Type dropdown -> Select Manual. Click Apply
    6. In the top left portion of the Services Window, Click Start this service.
    7. Now follow the steps in the first section, and it should work.

    These steps worked for this guy
    They have no guarantee to work for you
    Also worked for the other person as well.

    Please do the following in the order they are listed :

    1. Right click at the Start button > click Command Prompt (Admin) > at the flashing prompt, copy and paste this. ( Please use copy/paste method to avoid typo).........................

    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    >press Enter.
    This will take quite a while. When finished, it will show you the report.
    If it says operation is successful, proceed to #2 below.

    2. At the same command prompt (Admin) > type powershell > press Enter.
    At the flashing prompt, copy and paste this............
    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers |Where-Object {$_.InstallLocation -like "*SystemApps*"} | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

    >press Enter.

    Check and see if you can run Edge without issue this time.

    If the above 2 methods do not fix the problem, create another user account with exactly the same privileges > logon to it and see what happens when you open Edge.

    That worked great! many thanks but there were 3 power shell options to choose from, which did confuse me a bit

    Windows Powershell
    Powershell X86
    Powershell ISE

    That didn't work (for me) but the Powershell idea did.

    Thanks for trying anyway.

    For your future reference only.
    Not that it matters now that you have the problem resolved.

    My reply was a 2-step method.
    The step 1 Dism restorehealth is to make sure your system is clean. If it is not, step 2 might not work.
    Once the step 1 is done, then step 2 is to actually fix the Edge browser issue which was what you needed.

    Hi I did try you 2 Step Method but it just seemed to hang there forever, with no signs of anything happening, which is when I tried the Powershell method, which worked in an Instant.

    Maybe I didn't wait long enough 10 minutes? but with no signs of Progress, I thought that I would give the Powershell method a try.

    Dism........ restorehealth does take sometime to run. It will show a % and appears to stay that way for ever. It's actually running.

    It does not matter now. Your problem is fixed. Only thing that matters.
