    Windows 10 Apps (Mail, Store,Weather, etc) fail to launch


    Not a single Windows 10 App works (store Mail Weather Goove etc.) Every attempt is followed by this in Event Viewer for System:
    The server microsoft.windowslive.mail did not register with DCOM within the required timeout.

    and for Applications:
    Activation of app microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps_8wekyb3d8bbwe!microsoft.windowslive.mail failed with error: The app didn't start. See the Microsoft-Windows-TWinUI/Operational log for additional information.

    this is from a fresh re-install (my System previously failed due to bad memory left Windows in an unusable state i formatted teh system clean replaced teh Ram w/ known good sticks and installed from a Disc made by the Media Creation Tool (10 Pro)

    System Specs:
    Gigabyte F2A88XM-D3H Rev 3.1 (Bios version 10a)
    8GB DDR3-1333 Kingston branded Ram (i dont reeeealy feel like pulling teh case apart to get Model #s etc for the Ram. )
    MSI TwinFrozr Series GTX 760OC
    OCZ Modular 700W PSU
    WD 1TB Black HDD
    Generic Samsung DVD+RW Burner
    Windows 10 Pro (Digital Entitlement from upgrading from 7 Ultimate which that copy of 7 was obtained in 2009 at the "The New Efficiency" Seminar they had around teh world.)

    (ahh crap thought i still had the right Forum sectin open when i hit New Topic, can a Mod Move this please? )

    The first fixes are to uninstall / reinstall the offending apps then run the Apps Troubleshooter. Many people with this problem have had to do a repair install.
