    Weather and News App Crash when first launched


    I always have to open these apps twice because they crash when I first try to open them.

    I've tried running wsreset but it keeps happening.

    any ideas?

    Thanks

    Hello,

    I have the same problem too. In my case it's when I wake the computer from sleep, the first launch of Weather or News crash the app.

    I've reinstalled Windows 3 times because of this issue. Windows 10 makes me think everytime there is Something wrong with MY PC or my software, but it's not the case.

    So don't worry and just wait. Maybe Microsoft will release a patch, one day...

    Yes, I think it's another Win 10 thing that we just have to live with.

    Hello,

    After a little further investigation, it appears that sometimes, the processes "Microsoft.Msn.News.exe" and "Microsoft.Msn.Weather.exe" are not terminated when the Metro Apps "News" and "Weather" are closed by the user.

    As a consequence, when the apps are re-opened, I think that the "old" process must be terminated by Windows, but they're not terminated gently, causing an APPCRASH.

    You can download a tool like System Explorer to see what happens with the processes. Ending manually "Microsoft.Msn.News.exe" and "Microsoft.Msn.Weather.exe" after the apps are closed if the processes remain in Task manager, causes the application not to crash next time.

    Seems to be happening with the Money app, too. First run closes, second stays up. Seeing this on two different machines and it seems to have just started recently for me...maybe in the last week or so

    I've came across a homemade "fix"...

    Simply create a batch file with the following content and save it with the name you want (example : CloseApps.bat).

    taskkill /f /im Microsoft.Msn.News.exe
    taskkill /f /im Microsoft.Msn.Weather.exe

    Then, create a Scheduled task, to be executed when the Event ID 131 is registered (in my case, the issue occurs only after I wake my computer from sleep and Event ID 131 is the Windows Event registered everytime my PC wakes up). You should specify to run the Batch file you've just created.

    Voilą, problem solved (for now)...
