    Apps starting to no longer launch.

    Apps starting to no longer launch.-explorer_0z6hsa9sdf.png

    I have started having a problem with apps that used to launch that will no longer do so.
    The problem started about 5 weeks ago.

    When I try to launch I will get a message like the one I have included above it started with one app that I had been having no problem with up until five weeks ago and now it has spread to five apps that I know about so far including some I just installed.
    So far it is only been noticed with apps I have installed from the Microsoft Store.
    It will still do it with the app if I uninstall and re-install the app.

    Since I am new with Windows and PC I have no idea what the message is trying to tell me or what the problem is.

    I would greatly appreciate if any one could tell me what it is meaning and what I can do to fix the problem before all of the apps quit launching.

    Thank you in advance for any help that can be given.

    I am running Winsows 10 Pro version 20H2.

    Hi, I have screen OCR'd your error text so it can be searched for.
    C:\Program Files\WindowsAp ps\31310EvgenyLachinov.HomeMediaServer_4.3.0.0_x64_7ng8j...\hms.exe The data area passed to a system call is too small.

    Please note: I can only give some pointers.. not seen this one before.

    Note the solution is not to hack C:\Program Files\WindowsApps and take permssion as some have tried.

    There are some results- e.g. see comments here:

    Problems with windows store app - The Spotify Community

    Some suggest it can be related to Microsoft SQL Server drivers.
