Need some advice here for my Pro installation. On my ordinary user account, 5 apps simply stopped working. Nothing happens when I try to start them, nothing in the Event Log either. In my admin account one app is dead. I have tried just about everything to get them going but no luck. I created a new user account and everything works fine in that one. I changed the failing user account to an admin account and tried to re-register the apps. Process went fine but the apps stayed dead. This time, I got errors in the event log from the registering attempt. The errors were for some of the faulty apps but not for all; instead I got some errors for some other stuff than the apps, like the immersive control panel, miracast, devices flow and print dialog. They could of course be related to some settings. From an error I now get when starting windows, it seems that the path to the calculator is incorrect, so I guess the file system is involved in the problem. I strongly suspect the problems have been caused by a Windows update.
Anyway, I am at roads end and need to do something more drastic and is looking to make a repair install with an in-place upgrade. I am still on build 10240, which means I should be able to use the original purchased USB installation stick for this. I noticed build 10586 went public in November and 11082 was released to the fast ring somewhat later.
Anybody heard these later releases fix the problems with the apps and restore them to functionality again? If so, perhaps it is a better option to install 10586 (or 11082 if necessary) than to make a repair install. If no-one heard of this, probably better to make the repair install, as I otherwise have to go through all the trouble with creating installation media for the new build to be able to repair install. Thoughts?
