    Hi Brink et al.

    I get an error indicating that the app I'm trying to fix/reinstall is currently in use.

    I'm assuming I need to close this before executing the PowerShell command. However, as soon as I exit the app, it just starts up again! Do I need to run this from Safe Mode or what?

    Add-AppxPackage : Deployment failed with HRESULT: 0x80073D02, The package could not be installed because resources it
    modifies are currently in use.

    Hello fnanfne, :)

    This is a normal error to get when trying to re-register an app currently in use.

    If you are not having any issues with Cortana, then you can safely ignore it.

    If you are having issues with Cortana, then you might try again after restarting the computer, or try in safe mode.

    Hi Brink, thanks for the swift reply.

    Yes, I have issues with Search (Cortana). Windows 10 Search (Cortana) Not Working - Windows 10 Forums

    I made the unfortunate mistake of upgrading a few select users to Windows 10. Each one of them has numerous issues and 90% of them all share this Cortana Search issue which is beyond annoying. The one thing it's supposed to do, "search", it fails at miserably so my confidence in this app is dwindling.

    I'm guessing I need to try this (re-registering or re-installing apps) from Safe mode? I'm thinking this as the app just opens again each time it's closed.

    Hopefully, running the command in safe mode will help. If not, then you could also do a repair install to fix it without losing anything.

    When I try to use Option Two for Calculator (for example):

    PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Command "& {$manifest = (Get-AppxPackage *WindowsCalculator*).InstallLocation + '\AppxManifest.xml' ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest}"
    I receive the following error:

    Add-AppxPackage : Impossibile trovare il percorso 'C:\AppxManifest.xml' perché non esiste.
    In riga:1 car:94
    + ... fest.xml' ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manife ...
    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo : ObjectNotFound: (C:\AppxManifest.xml:String) [Add-AppxPackage], ItemNotFoundException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : PathNotFound,Microsoft.Windows.Appx.PackageManager.Commands.AddAppxPackageCommand

    Can you help me ?
    Thank you,

    Hello Claudio, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    That error message indicates that Calculator is missing which usually means that it as been completely uninstalled.

    If you like, you could do a repair install to restore it without losing anything.

    Am not sure, but removing apps using the powershell command works fine, but can be tricky once a you want to restore an app.
    example: I want to restore the Appconnector and maybe also Commsphone (after removing these apps outlook.com on my tablet does not work anymore, so I wish to check if these apps may have something to do with it)

    the elevated command gets me an error

    ==
    Code:
    PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Command "& {$manifest = (Get-AppxPackage *AppConnector*).InstallLocation + '\AppxManifest.xml' ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest}"
    Add-AppxPackage : Cannot find path 'C:\AppxManifest.xml' because it does not exist.
    At line:1 char:89
    + ... fest.xml' ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manife ...
    +                 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
        + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (C:\AppxManifest.xml:String) [Add-AppxPackage], ItemNotFoundException
        + FullyQualifiedErrorId : PathNotFound,Microsoft.Windows.Appx.PackageManager.Commands.AddAppxPackageCommand
    
    With me, Settings->Apps and Features->Get Started->Advanced Options is missing

    Hello tfwul, :)

    If you had uninstalled the "App Connector" for all users, then this would be why it's not being found now. If this is the case, then yeah, you may need to do a repair install to restore the app.
