ID:	24748I've had this problem for a while and with every build it doesn't get fixed. When I open the start menu the tiles don't appear. Screenshot should say it all. If anyone can tell me what to do to get this problem solved I would appreciate it

    Have you right-clicked on an app in the Most Used List and clicked on Pin to Start? It's improbable, but maybe the Start Menu didn't get built right but adding something may open it up.

    I've notice display drivers are causing a lot of issues with 10240. Maybe a full uninstall & reinstall of the drivers are in order.

    Other than doing a reinstall, the profile will not fix itself as it is based on a existing file that will not get replaced.

    The correct way to do it is create a new user account, look at the start menu to make sure the tiles look right, then logout.
    Login back to the admin account, run task manager, go to services tab and stop the tiledatamodelsvc service, it might take several tries as the service will restart and the PID is the same as StateRepository as you will notice they will either be stopped or running at the same time when you stop the tiledatamodelsvc.

    What you want to do is then delete all the files in C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\TileDataLayer\Database where <username> is the user's Start Menu that needs fixing.

    Then you just copy C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\TileDataLayer\Database\vedatamodel.edb and put it in the above folder. The <username> here is the newly created account you just logged out of. After this, just click on the start menu as it will restart the service you just stopped earlier.
