    Photo app crashes after a few seconds after opening


    Hello,

    After installing and enjoying Windows 10 for a few weeks, I am having problems with the Photo app.
    I was able to open it up with no problems and it showed me all my pictures but I few days ago, I opened it up and it quit after a few seconds. I kept open it with the same results: it opens , acts as if it is loading some pictures but it quits by itself after about 5-7 seconds.

    If this helps, I am providing with an error report from Windows 10.

    Any help you provide, it is greatly appreciated.

  2. Settings App crashes few seconds after opening.

    The DISM step includes how to do this. Please read it all.

    I'd go ahead and skip to the Repair Upgrade with latest media to save time.

    DISM is only needed if SFC cannot repair System files.

    What do I do?

    Should I replace .installlocation with a path to my C: drive or something?

    Thanks!

    Thanks for your suggestion but unfortunately it did not work. I did try other solutions like uninstalling/ reinstalling the Photos app with the same result; although now the app closes/quits after about 2-3 seconds.

    I really hope Microsoft works on a solution to this headache.

    Thanks again for your reply
