    Short of resetting Windows 10, you could use a new account instead, and copy over any files you wanted from the old account. *Sad

    I managed to get this to work again by deleting the files in %USERPROFILE%/AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\Assets and renaming the files in %USERPROFILE%/AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager_cw5n1h2txyewy\Settings then restarting.

    Hey Nick, *Smile

    The .bat file deletes the files in both those locations, and then re-registers Windows Spotlight for good measure.

    Did the .bat file not help?

    Strangely I tried the batch file, unblocked it and ran it but it was still the same. Manaully doing it worked.

  9. This is exactly my situation.
    All these are empty in my registry, and nothing I do seems to fix that. I've tried re-registering the app several times.
    I had content in the assets dir, that I delted, and nothing comes back, assuming because the registry is empty, so ContentDeliveryManager doesn't know where to put the files.

    I will now check the data for those registry values on my sons' computers, and see if I can manually set them and get some reaction from my system.

    Test running it from the desktop to see if that may be the issue.

  14. The answer is simple, once you know it! After trying all the fixes to resurrect Spotlight (Win10 Pro / 1709) which all resulted in failure, the simple answer was found: Settings > Privacy > Background Apps: Edge & Settings must be set to ON. Spotlight still doesn't work perfectly - but - another Win10 reset should fix the registry issues primarily with LockScreen > Creative which is basically empty. This is what was done:
    Completely deleted: Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager (must have permission - easy way TakeOwnerShip Pro App) > restored (using PowerShell Admin. approach) Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager (no errors) > turned ON Edge & Settings (which had been set to off > clicked Win Key + L > Spotlight. Now, it's not perfect: Preview Blank, Options (Like What You See, etc.) don't appear on the login Spotlight but do appear when the Win Key+L is used to view Spotlight. Disclaimer: This worked for me...but...every user setup is different. Additionally, Spotlight appears to have been coded by the Mad Scientist featured on Robot Chicken!!!

    Wow. This fixed everything. I turned on both Edge and Settings to be running in the background, then ran bat file and switched it to Spotlight and in a couple of minutes, Spotlight is working again.

    Thank you all.
