    %localappdata% is a shortcut to C:\Users\<your name>\AppData\Local. It is hidden by default - you need to enable viewing them. Hidden Files, Folders, and Drives - Show in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums. This isn't required though to fix this.

    To correct this error (as described in the link above) you need 3 accounts. I've assumed your original account is rostami here - you'll need to change where it is red it if it is something else

    • Create administrator account A and sign on and off.
    • Create administrator account B and sign on.
    • Copy the TileDataLayer database from account A to your original account. From elevated command prompt enter this:
      xcopy /herky "C:\Users\B\TileDataLayer\Database" "C:\Users\rostami\TileDataLayer\Database\"
    • Correct Authority. From elevated command prompt enter this:
      icacls "C:\Users\rostami\TileDataLayer\Database" /grant "%USERDOMAIN%\rostami":(F) /t
    • Sign off account B and onto original account.
    • If all OK, delete accounts A and B.
    Thank you very much.I solved it and it's great now.

    To Fix this, all you have to do is:
    Take ownership of C:\Program Files\WindowsApps
    Add "ALL APPLICATION PACKAGES" to C:\Program Files\Windows Apps

    Run the following in PowerShell (Administrator level):
    Get-AppxPackage -allusers | foreach {Add-AppxPackage -register "$($_.InstallLocation)\appxmanifest.xml" -DisableDevelopmentMode}
