    Please help with installing Store app via Powershell


    I have been trying to download and install Gears of War 4 via the store but it always fails and or never completes downloading the game for me.

    So I went ahead and used fiddler to download the full game file directly and install it using Powershell method. The file downloaded to my "D:" but I want to install the game on my "C:" drive, but when I add package with powershell the game always seems to get installed to my "D:\WindowsApps" directory. I have changed the default save locations in system settings to "C:", but still the game always only installs to my "D:" drive.

    So I then tried to copy and paste the fully installed folder from the "D:" to the "C:\ProgramFiles\WindowsApps" directory but then I get some error message "your organisation does not allow you to place files here"

    Can anyone body help me here, is there one way or another I can have the damm game installed to my "C:" drive. Thanks

    :)

    Mail app will not open on 10041.


    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. *Smile

    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)

    Please help with installing Store app via Powershell

    Cannot open mail app settings


    OK, my next suggestion was going to be uninstalling Mail and Calendar and reinstalling from the Windows Store. You can have a go at this by following these steps.

    1. Open the Start menu, type Windows PowerShell.
    2. Right click on the Windows PowerShell and select Run as administrator.
    3. Enter the below command to remove the Mail and calendar app.

    get-appxpackage *microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps* | remove-appxpackage

    After performing the above steps, install the Mail and calendar app from the Windows Store.

    Hope this helps, you will, of course, have to add you accounts back again.
