    DISM Error: 1812 - Can't run DISM or SFC, Win apps won't open


    Hello,

    I've run into a problem where my windows apps will not open.
    Calc opens with a gray screen just showing the calculator logo...calendar opens to a blue screen only showing the calendar logo, etc.

    I can't run SFC /scannow due to error "Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair service"

    To fix SFC, I've tried to run DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth
    I've also tried: Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:J:\sources\install.wim:1 /limitaccess

    this gives me "Error: 1812 An initialization error occurred, for more info review the log"
    dism.zip
    CBS.zip

    I ran a chkdsk /r earlier today, but didn't stick around for the results -- did not resolve the issue
    Using an 840 EVO SSD which makes me slightly skeptical for any disk errors, but tried it anyway

    Windows 10 64 bit [10.0.10240]


    I've researched the this error as much as I can to no avail. All I've found is a Microsoft employee stating to reinstall windows...and that is currently not an option for me.

    Thank you for your help

    Hi nuclearmage, welcome to Ten Forums.A repair install /in place upgrade may be the fastest way to fix the problem. This is from the tutorial forum. Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade - Windows 10 Forums. This is not a clean install it is like the upgrade process. You can choose to keep your programs and files.

    I don't have 10 running right now so I don't remember the exact message, but did you run SFC in an Administrative command prompt?

    Why are you still on 10240? Have you run any registry cleaners?

    Problems have been seen with some apps if there was a problem with the configuration settings... Namely, a few weeks ago the MSN Weather app had the same type of situation. I will have to check your two apps to see if they have the same type of configuration. Until then, if you can uninstall the apps you might try that. They should reinstall normally and if you try this, keep track of what happens on the first time you try to run the app.

    Kyhi,

    Thank you for the quick reply.

    I've extracted it to c:\image_health
    mounted the ISO, and I also happen to have a USB drive plugged in with a bootable windows 10 ISO installed on it
    there is no unblock option for me on image_health
    right-click->run as admin->1

    error,
    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
    Version: 10.0.10240.16384

    error: 1812

    An initialization error occurred
    for more info, review the log file

    log file is the same as provided in original help request. I found your post on someone else's thread and attempted this same fix

    Thank you for the idea, JohnC.
    I will look into the repair install (in-place upgrade) right now

    ...
    I'm not sure why I'd be on 10240...I've run every update Microsoft has offered me, including manually ran an update check.

    I have not run any registry cleaners -- does this appear to be a registry issue?

    I will try a reinstall of the apps after I give the previous suggestion of an upgrade install a try

    you need one 1 source - either mounted ISO or USB media.... Not both....

    right-click the .cmd file and unblock

    Just before 10586 came out folks were having a problem with Bing Weather and a couple of other apps. You might check the following path and see if you have anything in the LocalState folder. If you find some type of configuration.sqlite, let us know. The AppData folder is a hidden folder, so you could just copy the path and then paste in Explorer. You will need to change YourUser to your actual user folder name.

    C:\Users\YourUser\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.WindowsCalculator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState

    If you are not being offered the update to the next release, it might be you have recently upgraded from Windows 8.1 or 7 to 10. If that is not the case, something may be blocking your updates and you may need to work on that.

    Saltgrass, LocalState is an empty folder, that includes no hidden items in said folder.


    kyhi, Great program -- was looking at how it works -- but the sad news is...no change. Hope the screenshot can give you some info

    Downloaded windows 10, English, x64 from the source you provided.

    Burned the image to a USB drive

    Using image_health under c:\image_health as administrator

    Option 1 -> does not run, error 1812
    Option 2 -> does not run, error 1812
    Option 3 -> no change from previous screenshot

    Did not run further tools from your program.

    JohnC,
    I downloaded win 10, burned it to a flash drive, attempted to run setup->install->and do the in-place instal...at 38% in I get "Windows 10 installation has failed"
    I did notice some fancy new $SysReset, $WINDOWS.~BT, and $Windows.~WS folders if that means anything....Read in a post somewhere about a problem in ~BT causing their installation to fail

    cleaned up dism.log

    Thanks for the suggestions
