    I click an app and nothing happens


    Hello, I have updated my windows yesterday and ever since then I have been having some issues opening certain apps, when I click “app”, nothing happens at all, not even an error message. I have read that the reason could be file corruptions after the update so I tried restoring but it says that there is no restore points found. I also am not sure if this problem happens with apps other than the one I am trying to open because I tried opening a few others and I had no issue whatsoever, but this certain app is not opening for some reason, to be more specific, the app is a cracked version of the game “Sims 4”. It worked perfectly fine before the update, now I just can’t figure out how to run it.

    :)

    Mail app will not open on 10041.

    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. I click an app and nothing happens :)

    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)
