    Windows 10 - release version: Some apps won't launch

    I had an update to windows a few days ago. Now some of the apps are not launching. The following work as normal: Settings, calculator, paint, hearts deluxe, witcher 3, Machinarium. Those not working include: Asphalt, flow free, hill climb racing, super golf land - all games from the store. I have tried reinstalling them but to no avail. When I click on one there is a brief flash and the screen reverts to what it was. I have no problems with other programs installed.
    I ran SFC - a few errors were found and reported as repaired.

    Ran SFC a second time "Windows did not find any integrity violations"
    Ran DISM - no problems reported
    Ran SFC a final time, no integrity violations.
    The problem with apps not loading remains as it was. The only other thing I have done in the last few days is to use disc cleanup to remove unwanted files on C drive, including "Old Windows"

    windows 7 64 bit

    Would you expect everything to work? Drivers and updates are needed for some hardware and software. That's why I will stay with win 7. It's to early to change, unless you like grief!.

    I have been using Windows 10 for several months now and most things HAVE worked. The problems started after an update. I use this forum to get help from others who have more knowledge or experience than me. Snide comments about the operating system are not helpful.

    Windows 10 Pro Release

    I am having this same problem, have you found any solution yet? In my situation, Calculator does not work, OneDrive does not work, Store does not work, Photos does not work, but Paint and Settings do work. I can run Edge, Cortana and Chrome just fine as well. I have tried The command:

    Code:
    Get-AppXPackage | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
    But it results in many errors, and they all seem generic (nothing identifying enough to search)

    Will continue to search, but trying to ask for help as well.
