    If you have experienced the Action Center acting weird, the tiles going nowhere, All Settings not working, Night light not working....and crashing settings with clicking Devices I have found what looks like a quick and easy workaround.

    I noticed every time I clicked Action Center in the taskbar, this error was logged.

    Code:

    I took ownership of the .dll, C:\Windows\System32\DeviceFlows.DataModel.dll , renamed it to C:\Windows\System32\DeviceFlows.DataModel_old.dll

    Then I got a copy of the same .dll from a 15025 build, copied it into C:\Windows\System32.

    Without re-booting, I checked clicking on Action Center. ALL tiles worked correctly, including Night Light. All settings took me to the Settings Applet. And Devices did NOT crash!

    I re-booted and the setting stayed. SFC /scannow will, of course, undo this and put it right back.

    This is the 15025 .dll - x64 Pro

    I've noticed no ill effects. Just wanted to pass this along if you care to try.

    Thank you TC

    Even with Show Hidden Files un-selected in Folder Options, I get this. Shows the one I renamed and the one I copied.

    Make sure you are looking here: "C:\Windows\System32\DeviceFlows.DataModel.dll"

    Odd. Did you restart? And the .dll I posted is for 64-bit only.

    My system is Pro 64bit. I didn't restart. Will do that now and report back. Incidentally, Action Center reverted to its old broken self a minute ago but maybe trhe restart will remedy that also.
