    dual display lost after removing appx package


    Good day,

    Recently I discovered online about removing appx package with PowerShell or something anyway I followed the instructions and it was successful I put all commands properly and the software is gone.

    Other thing is I turned off Windows Update for 30 days because it kept returning an error code and the install constantly failed, I tried rebooting in safe mode to delete a temp file and a few other things but just decided to turn it off for 30 days.

    ANYWAY I used to run this machine - Lenovo ThinkPad T440p (awesome unit) with a HDMI cable to my TV and now I'm just getting a "no signal" pong game even though the TV itself recognizes a device is connected to HDMI port and offers to switch the signal isn't delivered and the laptop screen stays on even during a restart.

    Main question is did I accidentally delete something important for "multiple displays - show only on 2" to disappear from my OS????

    Question 2 is can someone walk me through the correct troubleshooting to repair this issue without having to reinstall appx package?


    :)

    Remove appx package for all users

    The "Remove-AppxPackage" only removes store applications for the logged in user, even if you pipe it from Get-AppxPackage -AllUser

    I've had trouble updating apps in the past because another user had logged in and the app had been updated in their profile, it's also a known issue when using sysprep.

    You can identify if that is the case using this script:

    In the output of this last cmdlet, check the users for whom the package is showing up as Installed. Delete these user accounts from the reference computer, or log on to the computer by using these user accounts & remove the Appx package, as you have been:

    If that still doesn't work, you could try removing the provisioning and installing it again from the Store.

     
  3. Force-remove a Windows 10 Appx package, skipping any errors that might occur

    I bought the pre-order version of Forza Motorsport 7 in September. During installation of the pre-order, an error occurred which left the installation mostly installed. Forza Motorsport is delivered via the Windows Store, and is distributed via the Appx App Packager.

    Now that Forza Motorsport 7 has "gone gold", I'd like to install the full version of the game. Typically this automatically occurs when you run the pre-order "stub" application, however because of the problem during the initial installation, the full game is not downloading.

    My first thought was do a simple "uninstall and re-install", however attempting to uninstall the app using the "Apps and Features" page in Settings results in this error:

    Not helpful. Next I used Get-AppxPackage *Apollo* (Apollo is the code name for this game) via PowerShell to obtain the Appx Package Name for the game, then used Remove-AppxPackage "Microsoft.ApolloBaseGame_1.0.2.2_64__xwekyb3d8bbwe" to uninstall the app. That doesn't work with the following error:

    As recommended in the output above, I ran Get-Appxlog to see the actual error:

    Error: 0x80070002 seems to indicate a "file not found" error. Although the messaging doesn't show which file was not found. So helpful.

    Next, I tried using DISM.exe to remove the package:

    Relevant content from the DISM log file:

    Using the command-line, I can verify that C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.ApolloBaseGame_1.0.2.2_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\AppxMetadata\AppxBundleManifest.xml does not exist. However, I cannot create the file, nor can I copy a file into that location. Even if I run cmd.exe as system, via PsExec:

    Is there some way to manually get rid of an Appx package that cannot be uninstalled? Alternately, is there some way to manually trigger a re-install of an appx?

    I could boot from a Windows PE environment and create a fake AppxBundleManifest.xml file, but I feel like a fake xml manifest will likely just make things worse. Presumably that manifest file typically contains dependency information that is needed by the uninstall process.

    Do I have to format C: and re-install? Really?
