Windows 10: Does windows 10 calc.exe need the MS Store to function? Solved

    Does windows 10 calc.exe need the MS Store to function?

    When I attempt to run 'calc.exe' I get message- "You'll need a new app to open this calculator". I have downloaded another calculator and can use that, but like the conversions that the Win10 built-in 'calc.exe' offers. Believe that when I disabled the MS Store that this may have stopped 'calc.exe' from being able to start. Have changed permissions and ownership but to no avail. Anybody got an idea?

    Ahhh, nevermind, the Windows Store is hopelessly broken on this machine, and I'm not going to backup or restore just for the Win10 calc.exe . . . giving up on this one.
