  1. Microsoft ToDo crashes with event id 5961 - Error 80040904 and 80040905: Activation phase:...


    Hi,

    One of our users has a new Win 10 20H2 laptop and all is working OK except Microsoft ToDo crashes on launch. We've tried re-installing it, updating all the store apps and restarting but no change.

    In the Microsoft-windows-TWinUI/Operational log it logs error event ID 5961:

    Activation for Microsoft. Todos_8wekvb3dBbbweApp failed. Error code unknown HResult Error code 80040904 : Activation phase: COM App activation


    Also some with error code Error code 80040905 as well.


    Can't find any help for this specific issue and it is a new laptop with other store apps working.


    Any ideas on how to fix this?


    Thanks,

    Nigel

    :)

    Event ID 10016

    Solved Numerous event id 10016 errors win 8 pro 64 bit

    Here is the basic outline ...

    1. Search the registry for the CLSID
    2. Make note of the Default Value, which is the name (ex. ShellExperienceHost, RuntimeBroker) you're going to look for in DCOM
    3. Change the Owner to Administrators
    4. Give Administrators Full Control
    5. Repeat steps 1-4 for the APPID
    6. WinKey + s > type in component services > click on Component Services in list
    7. Component Services > Computers > My Computer > DCOM Config
    8. Change the View to Details
    9. Find the name from step 2 (ex. ShellExperienceHost, RuntimeBroker)
    10. Right Click on the Name > Properties
    11. Select the Security Tab
    12. Launch & Activation Permissions > Click Edit
    13. Look for the offending user from the 10016 (ex. System, Local Service) and make sure it has the activation requested (ex. Local Activation). If the offending user does NOT exist, you have to add it and give it Local Launch and Local Activation
    14. Click Apply
    15. Close DCOM and Regedit
    16. Reboot PC

    Note: Make sure you understand the steps before doing them Microsoft ToDo crashes with event id 5961 - Error 80040904 and 80040905: Activation phase:... :)

    Event ID 105 from source Microsoft-Windows-Immersive-Shell cannot be found

    My friend's computer has this entry in the TwinUI Operational log:

    Event ID 105

    The description for Event ID 105 from source Microsoft-Windows-Immersive-Shell cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component
    on the local computer.

    >How can I install or repair the Windows Immersive Shell?

    >Can this be done with regsvr?

    The log also contains multiple event ID 5961 entries, e.g.

    Event ID 5961

    Activation of the app Microsoft.Windows.Cortana_cw5n1h2txyewy!CortanaUI for the Windows.Launch contract failed with error: Invalid value for registry.

    In addition, I have already found the following KB article, and will try it the next time I get access to the computer.

    Win8: App: Modern: Apps fail to start if default registry or file permissions modified
