  1. i want to fix windowsapps.


    OS:Windows 10
    Version:about all of them starting with 1507

    hey i've been trying to fix the windowsapps folder without reinstalling windows again, i've tried xcopy with every permission,attributes, and about everything from a clean untouched folder copied straight from install.wim with the same version that i have, but for some reason, windows wont recognize the apps as i put windowsapps in, do i have to deploy everything? and everytime i try to register every app, it thinks appmanifest is located in c which is confusing and idk why
    when i use this command "Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers| Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}"
    but it kinda irritates me that it looks for c and im trying to find a way, with reinstalling causes me to be annoyed, cause then i have to get things from registry, try to what, and how many programs i have installed and try to get files from the user, redownload the bookmarks and everything from chrome and about everything that is cached and stored. it annoys me.
    also why does microsoft have this thing when you clean install windows 10 and then like msot of the apps have an arrow on them and later on doesnt get its icons back even when i reset the start menu layout, is it because i have to update microsoft store and the other apps? this is nonsense.

    :)

    WindowsApps folder says permissions are corrupted and need to be deleted, is this normal or critical?

    According to your description, I suggest you try the following steps:

    1. Navigate to the location C:\Program Files.
    2. Right-click on the WindowsApps folder, and select Properties.
    3. Turn to Security tab and click on Advanced.
    4. Click on Change and then type Users in Enter the object name to select area.
    5. Click on OK, then click Apply > OK. You can also add the TrustedInstaller to the users list and check if it takes effect.

    However, you might be still not able to access the files. The workaround is to go inside the C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\, and repeat the same way with the Microsoft.WindowsStore* folders.

    i want to fix windowsapps.

    System Restore fails: AppxStaging %ProgramFiles%\WindowsApp 0x80070091


    Steps taken.
    Part 1/
    Install W10. User -Test (No additional updates. No OEM drivers)
    Create Restore Point -"Pristine"
    Make a system alteration. ie; D/L and Install Google Chrome.
    System Restore to RP "Pristine". (Note: Chrome should be gone.)
    Successful. Chrome is gone and Edge reset. ??? Chromesetup file removed from \downloads??? Why???
    New Restore Point - "Undo Restore" created by system.

    Step 2/
    D/L and install KB3213986. Reboot.
    Make a system alteration. ie; D/L and Install Google Chrome.
    Create Restore Point - "Update 1 Chrome"
    Make a system alteration. Uninstall Chrome.
    System Restore. (Note: Chrome should come back but may not work correctly.)
    Fail. 0x80070091

    To me that represents a conclusive result.

    The next obvious thing to do was to roll back the Update, assuming that this will fix System Restore. However, rolling back the Update DID NOT restore the functionality of System Restore. So now my confident claim, above, is a bit shaky. If performing the update does in fact cause the issue, removing it doesn't put it right.

    So now, the next obvious thing is to perform the WindowsApps rename or deletion process, to apply the fix, and run a series of testing to see if System Restore becomes stable.

    Results.
    Performing the WindowsApps rename fix, instead of deleting it this time, once again resulted in System Restore operating correctly. I have been able to install the remaining updates and flip back and forth between Restore Points without issue.

    At this point I am done with it. My testing shows that:
    • It is update KB3213986 that causes the problem to occur in the first instance.
    • Rolling back the update does not correct the problem.
    • Performing the known fix returns System Restore functionality.
    • For how long, we don't yet know.

    Should you wish to rename the WindowsApps directory rather than delete it, the attrib WindowsApps -h command line can only be performed after the icacls command line.
