    MS apps screwed up after updates


    Anyone having issues with MS app updates tonight? Loads updated such as news, weather, solitaire. They all appear to launch ok but as soon as we switch to another user they refuse to launch. Store prompts reinstall to repair but that doesn't then download. Seems MS has royally screwed a lot of these up. And then in turn I go back to my user acc and they refuse to open. Did a system restore which got everything back as it was again and launching all these apps. But as soon as they updated again same thing happened

    Just to clarify - are you doing the fast-user-switch or logoff/logon to another user?

    Cheers, am logging out and then logging in.

    it might only become an issue if you have other user accounts on the pc. As it only flared up once I logged out and then my wife logged in. Weve got two machines, the other one also has user accounts and seems to of dodged the issue. Ive tried resetting the apps and reinstall but neither helps. I tried to go back to the system restore point again but that failed on the second attempt and now the machine claims there are no restore points!

    Okay, I have a second user on this rig. I'll logout, and log into it and see what happens. Let me first make sure the apps that just updated are working in this user account.

    Thanks - I am thinking I might have to head down the media creation/repair install avenue. But I do believe there may be something wrong with the way MS updates its apps. At least in this batch, weather, news and solitaire seem to be the ones that got hosed

    Okay, I updated those apps, (above), made sure they opened, then closed everything and logged out of this user account (a local admin user). I then logged into a standard MS user account and opened those apps - they all worked.

    Maybe you could try the Store troubleshooter and/or reset the Store. Then do the sfc /scannow and DISM commands?

    Actually, I recall having this problem a few days ago with some other store apps. I used Ccleaner to uninstall them, and then reset the Store, and reinstalled them. That fixed it.

    Ok thank you. Some good things to try out. I will report back on how that goes. Im curious about the ccleaner fix you employed. Were any of the apps giving you trouble Microsoft native apps? They seem to be a lot stubborn/flakey than other third party apps
