  1. Opening an app opens the app store instead.


    I am trying to open an app that I have on xbox ultimate but when I click on the app it opens the app store instead on the gaming services page. I have tried reinstalling gaming services.

    This appears to be intermittent as it's happened before and a couple of restarts fixed it. I dont want to delete and re-install the game as I've put in a few hours with it.


    The game is "Slay the Spire" but I am not sure that's relevant.

    :)

    Mail app will not open on 10041.


    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. Opening an app opens the app store instead. :)

    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)

  3. Apps keep opening store


    All of my system apps will only open the store instead of the app.
    Windows update - store opens
    Power options - store opens
    All settings - store opens

    Regular apps (weather, news, etc) open just fine.
    Anyone else encounter this?

    Mail app will not open on 10041.


    Hey Shawn,
    I did that to no avail, then I ran WSReset.exe; now I'm good on all 3, Mail, Calendar and People! *Confused
    Go figure!
