    Need help reinstalling metro apps


    I was installing this new game and it had errors, part of the troubleshooting of said game was to nuke the app data folder. I have deleted things from this folder in the past on previous OSes just fine with no issues. However after killing this folder the start menu did not work nor did cortana or onedrive. I did find a solution to partially fix it as it restore some of the apps. However its not working specifically for the Windows store. My thoughts is because the guides I found on this were made before the fall update that the name of the apps have changed slightly or something else is different that I have to do. Is there any guide that is updated for the fall update that shows how to reinstall the Windows Store? I have already done the dism restorehealth thing too before someone suggests that.

    Hello Mansome,

    I'm afraid that there's currently a bug in the latest Windows 10 that when you use the usual PowerShell command to reinstall and repair apps, it will delete the folder and break it instead now. Microsoft is working on it, but there's no fix yet.

    Usually when this happens, it may take doing a repair install to fix them without losing anything.

    At least now this makes sense why some stuff didn't come back when I ran the powershell scripts. What I might do is wait for the next insider build and upgrade from that. Any news on if there are any builds on the way?

    There's a rumor one may be released on the 18th, but we shall see.
