  1. Problems with Groove Player


    After a recent Windows 10 update my Grove Player no longer works. Every time I try I keep getting "Error Message -2147219195:. I have tried all the Windows 10 repair programs and still nothing. I have tried to even do a System Restore but for some reason it lo longer works either. With Windows 10 there seems to be one problem after another.

    Groove Shows Unknown Artist & Unknown Album


    I solved it by doing the following! I'm not sure which step cracked the problem.


    • Set indexing to index the content of my music files by right clicking on the top level folder, setting the option and applying to all files and sub-folders
    • Rebuilt the index via the Control Panel Indexing options
    • Deleted the folders watched in Groove
    • Deleted the Groove database at C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.ZuneMusic_<random>\LocalState\Database
    • Started Groove
    • Reassigned the folders to watch

    All songs now appear with the right artist & album but some album art was missing in Groove and Media Player despite being displayed correctly in iTunes. I manually updated the missing album art in Media Player and Groove then synchronised to match the Media Player album art.
