Windows 10: My run dialog box doesn't work

    My run dialog box doesn't work


    Just did a clean install on 10 and was researching another problem that required the run box but mine doesn't seem to work.
    I get a response that 'it didn't open in a timely manner'.
    Any suggestions, thanks

    I had this problem with Windows 10 version 1511, which is the November update. I didn't have this issue with the original release of Windows 10, which is version 10240.

    You should Google and download the ISO for that version of Windows, and make sure you download the correct edition. Home and PRO are combined on the new ISO. The old version, the editions are separate.

    Not sure when Microsoft will release fixes for these issues. Lots of bugs in the new version.

    Not sure what you mean about the ISO. Does it have something to do with the media creation tool?

    2 suggestions :

    1. Right click at Start button > click Command Prompt (Admin) > at the flashing prompt, copy/paste this.......
    sfc /scannow

    > press Enter.
    It will take quite sometime.
    When finished, it will give you one of the 3 reports...............(paraphrasing)
    1. No integrity violation.
    2. Found corrupt files and repair successful.
    3. Found corrupt files but unable to repair.

    If the report is #1, your solution lies elsewhere.
    If the report is #2, check if your problems have been resolved.
    If the report is #3, use this method................
    In the same Command Prompt (Admin) windows, copy and paste this command...........

    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    > press Enter.
    Again it will take some time.
    When finished, it will give you a report.

    2. If the above cannot fix the Run issue, do an in-place upgrade install, otherwise also known as repair install.
    Use the link below :
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows10

    Click the Download Tool Now button > then run the Tool .................
    Select Create installation media for another PC option > that will begin downloading the ISO to your computer.
    After iso is downloaded, RIGHT click at the iso file > click Mount > click Setup.exe.
    That will begin installation.
    You have the choice to keep your settings, files and apps, or keep nothing.
    No product key is required.
    Activation is automatic.
