    Windows.MiracastView Error?


    I've started getting the Windows.MiracastView error shown below after the FCU. Have you any ideas what this is due to and how to fix it?

    Yes getting it here as well, found it yesterday while checking event viewer.

    Ran Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth last night and no further entries since.

    I had this error too, and running the RestoreHealth command made no difference.
    All attempts to uninstall Miracast manually all failed too.
    I eventually got rid of the error messages by going here -
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Appx\AppxAllUserStore\Deleted\EndOfLife
    There was an entry for the Miracast app there, which showed just how many times the system had tried to remove it, so it looks as if the system was trying to delete it on boot as "End of Life" for some reason.
    I deleted its entry, and the errors went away.
    Why it's trying to delete Miracast I have no idea, I can only assume it's because my system doesn't support it.
    Anyway, although it appears in the apps list when viewed with Powershell, and says it's OK, there is no installed folder listed (it should be in C:\Windows\Miracast, which doesn't exist on my system) so I've no idea what its status actually is.
    Anyway it doesn't seem to be doing any harm, and at least the error messages have now gone away, let's hope they stay that way!
    Cheers, Dave.

    Good tip. I had those entries and deleted them. I'll check what happens.

    Miracast are used to connect to devices such as a smart TV or other devices via Wi-Fi!

    It has been supported by Windows up to the Fall Creators version. There are other ways of connecting wireless to devices.

    Only mobile phones or smart TV's that need Miracast, will be in for a problem, if it's not there!

    I have made a back-up of the Miracast folder and the shortcut in start menu, just to be save.

    Finally figured out how to remove Windows.MiracastView and get rid of the error.

    Download the required files here.
    https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Qr...HnvdzB5RXmFQop


    Extract the Zip file and then move the entire MiracastView folder to "C:\Windows"


    Use Powershell to complete the uninstall

    you must log into each user on the system and run the following command:
    Code:
    Get-AppxPackage *Windows.MiracastView* | Remove-AppxPackage
