    Mail app will not open on 10041.

    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. Settings app crashing every time I open it :)

    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)

    Hearthstone open beta

    ... is now open!

    No wait, that's not the word.

    The word is ASS.

    Step 1. Download the client installer.

    Step 2. The installer connects to the server, or at least tries to, overnight during which it just stops several times.

    Step 3. Realize the installer is for the Battle.net unified launcher, and not Hearthstone as such.

    Step 4. Install the Battle.net unified launcher. This may take a few hours, even after it's been downloaded as such, it's still just slow.

    Step 4. Install Hearthstone. Wait for the app to crash a couple of times, wait for it to verify various stuff, then wait for the download to start.

    Step 5. Wait for the download to finish. It is pretty quick actually, unless it just crashes.

    Step 6. ASS

    And no, I still have no compassion for the people bitching about EA servers.

    Settings app crashing every time I open it

    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.
