  1. Cant update apps!

    Helloe again!

    So one day, my calculator app stopped working, I looked up how to fix it, and I found out that I needed to get into a folder called WindowsApps

    In order for me to make changes, I needed to change ownership of the folder, and I did that

    I was able to fix the app, but I never changed the ownership back, thinking that it should be fine, but I was wrong

    I go to update some apps, and I get an error Code - 0x80070005 I looked it up, and it was the Access Denied code

    I am the Admin, in fact, I own the computer that I am using, I knew that it had to do with changing the ownership of the folder, but I didn't know how to fix it...
    I changed the owner to SYSTEM and then to TrustedInstaller, but nothing really worked, that's all I did, I didn't really try any steps, because I feel I would just screw up the folder more

    I would just like to know how to get the original permissions back on the folder, and update apps again

    once more, I own the computer we are talking about, and I am using an Admin account, I run Windows 10 OS

    Mail app will not open on 10041.

    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. Cant update apps! :)

    In this Windows 10 build 10041, the Mail, Calendar, and People apps may be broken due to a licensing issue with the Store Beta. To get these apps working again, you need to follow these steps:

    • Open powershell as administrator
    • Run the command Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like “*windowscommunicationsapps*”} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online
    • Re-install Mail, People and Calendar from the Store (green tile)

    Windows Updated(16299.309).KB4088776 Restart is required to complete.

    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond Cant update apps! :) Best regards.

    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.

    • Using the Themes app, apply the new theme.
