    Windows Apps not working


    Hello,
    Since a week, I have trouble with Windows Photos and Windows Maps Apps. It seems that the calling link is broken.Windows Apps not working-pb-applis-windows-10.png
    Icon of Photos Apps calls "Microsoft.Windows.Photos_15.1026.13580.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbw" but program name in WindowsApps directory is "Microsoft.Windows.Photos_15.1001.16470.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe".
    I have tried to restore a previous state and to delete Photos Apps with Powershell but it doesn't work.
    Thanks for anyone who could help me to solve this problem.

    Try this in a elevated/Administrator Powershell:
    Code:
    Add-AppxPackage -register "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.Windows.Photos_15.1026.13580.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\appxmanifest.xml" -DisableDevelopmentMode
    Code:
    Add-AppxPackage -register "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.WindowsMaps_4.1510.2941.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\appxmanifest.xml" -DisableDevelopmentMode

    Thanks for your reply!
    Unfortunetly, it doesn't work. It tolds me that directory "... Photos_15_1026..." doesn't exist.
    I have tried to change with my directory reference "... Photos_15_1001..." but it tolds me that upper version is already installed

    Take a look in C:\Program Files\WindowsApps to find out what the version # is, always use the largest number if there is more than one.

    Hi
    In C:\Program Files\WindowsApps, upper version is ... Photos_15_1001... but icon link is ... Photos_15_1026...
    In fact, I've noticed that this problem happens after a system restoration. System files are certainly not completly restored.
    Lot of people seems to have this problem. I hope that Microsoft will correct very soon

    Yeah, when you system restore, it will delete anything after the restore point's date making it non-existent, I can get you 1026 if you want and you can try it and see what happens as all you need to do is extract to C:\Program Files\WindowsApps which you can download at the link below, make sure you click the "Download" button which shows the filesize a few times as the first time usually doesn't work...

    For Windows Photo

    Let me know if this works and if it does, we can then try the other app.

    Hi Almighty1
    Thank you for your help. After loading your program, I had a hope because I was told to go to Windows Store to repair the apps. After repair, name under icon was corrected. Unfortunatly, there is still a problem with the register.
    Before loading your program, I called Microsoft support. After taking control of my PC during 20 minutes. I was told that my session was corrupted and to create a new one. That's not really the answer I was waiting for.
    I will continue to search for correcting this problem. If I find a solution, I will let you know
    Have a good week-end
