    Workaround for 15031 Non-responsive Action Center


    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

    DeviceFlows.DataModel.dll.zip

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

    I have no problem with the Action Center after having disabled all tiles and Action Center itself except that now I invoke it only with WinKey+A and everything works!

    Pretty nifty workaround, though!

    This is the first time I every tried to take ownership so I was a little nervous. To my surprise I didn't mess up and the work around worked. Thanks!

    Made a pot of coffee early this morning preparing for a boring hour of waiting as I had decided to go back to previous build 15025 because for me deal breaking devices and casting issue in 15031 (RE: this post).

    Luckily I saw this fix before I started! I always keep Take Ownership in context menu (tutorial) so it was a simple task to right click the DLL file in question, take ownership, rename it and replace the one from 15025.

    Thanks to @Dick I can once again connect to any Miracast device

    Worked like charm, pulled the file from MR backup and replaced it. Now just to remember not to use SFC.

    You can always just put it back! Glad it worked for you, Mike.

    Something happened, AC is acting up again, this time it took 3 or 4 messages to become translucent again. Before it was doing it after first. Devices are still working but shows all devices as "Not Connected" in "Bluetooth & other devices". Mouse etc. works OK.

    Seems it is polling around the system looking for connected devices. In old-school terms, it was sizing the attached devices. Rolled my mouse a few times up/down and all was there. All fine. Just a little jerky-jumpy while it takes inventory.
