  1. Photos app crashes

    I have had this same problem with Windows Photo App for quite a while now, on two different systems. I can open the app and import photos no problems at all, but as soon as I try and open a single photo after importing, the app crashes. It doesn't happen if I open the app and then try and open a photo without importing anything first. Importing is done from an SD Card in a USB Card reader.

    This has happened right from a clean install on my old Intel system and now the same happens on my new AMD system. I have tried repairing/reinstalling the app and it makes no difference. I have tried scanning system files sfc/scannow and this hasn't helped. I have tried different card readers and different USB ports directly on motherboard and other hubs. Not really sure what else I can try. Any suggestions?

    Windows Photos App crashes

    So since today my Photos App is crashing as soon as i open it. It goes into a blackscreen for about 2-3 Seconds and than crashes.

    Information about the error:
    This Crash is generating chrash dumps that contain the error code 0xC0000602 in module mrt100_app.dll or 0xc000027b in module twinapi.appcore.dll.

    I found two intresting facts about the error:
    - If I try a system restore to a point created 3 days ago, the App starts working again. A few minutes after using the system, the app starts crashing again.
    - I created a new local account and the app does seem to work on that new account until now.

    Steps I have tried:
    - Reinstall Photos app by uninstalling it using Powershell and rerisntalling it - did not change anything
    - Reregister the App - did not change anything
    - Scan the System with sfc and dism - no errors
    - Use System resstore - see above, did only work for a few minutes.

    Microsoft Support suggested reinstalling Windows, but I do non really want to reinstall the whole system just because one app is not working...

    This happens most often when I'm in the editing menu

    Sometimes it crashes on startup - Sometimes when I enter the Editing Menu - Sometimes when I attempt to edit

    Things I've attempted to do to fix

    • Contact Microsoft Support (cringe)
    • sfc /scannow
    • Restore Libraries to default
    • Created another local account
    • Clear the app cache
    • Check disk health (extremely healthy)
    • Add a Microsoft Account / Connect a Microsoft account
    • Put photos in a different folder / drive
    • The system Troubleshooter.


    Possible Causes .
    • My photos are located on another disk Photos app crashes :)G) - I have an SSD (128GB) for boot - A 1TB regular drive for Programs and another 1 TB drive for documents/photos/etc.
