    Help with this result using Powershell to fix start button


    I run the Powershell command that is supposed to fix the Start button fail (as well as Cortansa etc) and I got this message that I don't know how to interpret.

    I made sure that Windows Firewall was running too.

    'Windows cannot install package Microsoft.NET.Native.Runtime.1.1_1.1.23118.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe because it has version1.1.23118.0. A higher version 1.1.23406.0 of this package is already installed.
    NOTE: For additional information, look for [ActivityId] 04071f03-7b98-0002-d492-0904987bd101 in the Event Log or use
    the command line Get-AppxLog -ActivityID 04071f03-7b98-0002-d492-0904987bd101
    At line:1 char:38
    + ... | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.I ...

    + CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (C:\Program File...ppXManifest.xml:String) [Add-AppxPackage], Exception

    No idea what that says lol

    Hi, since build 10586 / 1511 (November update) the Powershell commands typically used for that break apps. (Typically users see an @ sign in the Win 10 start menu before each app name after running the command and they don't work).

    Hence the usual solution for the initial problem you report is this:
    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade - Windows 10 Forums

    This will keep all your programs and most settings, leaving system restore off.

    Before such a major change (= installing the November version of Win 10) you are strongly recommended to create a system image at least using Win 10's Backup and Restore (Windows 7) and preferably use a 3rd party imaging program e.g. Macrium Reflect (free).

    Disk imaging has so many advantages as a backup and allowing you to restore your system without tech help.

    Has this repair install been known to work though? to get the Start button to work properly?
