    Have tried running this code in Powershell as admin (found it here):

    Code: Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}[/quote] The code fails after a while due to the Powershell Window is open (doh!). It doesn't matter if I try with the x86 or x64 bit version of PS, neither does it work if I save it as a script and then run it.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks a million for any help.

    :)

    Windows 10 apps not installing/loading - including Store

    I've recently installed Windows 10. All of my apps from Windows 8.1 have moved over and seem to be fine. However the standard Windows 10 apps, such as the Store, aren't working. They appear to be greyed out, as though they haven't downloaded. When I press
    them they flash up then close down instantly - even if I use the white Store button on the bottom bar. I have a picture included displaying the Windows apps greyed out, my other apps just fine.

    Under my "day-to-day" group, you can see Edge and Cortana are coloured and those work just fine. The Calendar, Mail, etc are greyed and they don't work and won't download. It's been like this since yesterday so they're not just slowly downloading...

    Store Apps Auto update greyed out

    Brand new clean install of Win10, setup as a personal laptop so no domain involved at all. Locally installed everything and on a standard home network.

    Most Apps are greyed out, there is only 1 account and it's just a few hours old which is full admin.

    The other thing worth noting is that on installing office 2013 (full) pro plus you need to run SFC in order to make it work. It seems all to be broken out of the box. Further more we've witnessed this same behaviour on 6 to 8 individual devices. So clearly
    by design ?? I think several KB fixes are required MSFT.

  5. I had the same problem, but found a solution:
    1. Open Command Prompt as administrator
    2. Type "sfc /scannow"
    3. Once it is complete type " dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth"
    4. Restart your PC
    5. Open Powershell as admin
    6. Type "Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}" and press enter - when finished all tiles were no longer greyed out and all apps could now run

    Although steps 5 and 6 are the same as in the first post, doing steps 1-4 first fixed problems allowing step six to properly work

    Hope this helps

  6. Thanks, Redgeneral!

    Unfortunately I had already reinstalled Windows 10 when I got your reply, so I haven't been able to try your solution but hopefully someone else will benefit from it *Smile

    Before reinstalling I tried to make a system recovery, but that messed up things even more: not only did it not solve the initial problem, it also broke the Windows search function completely.

    I updated to Windows 10 directly from Windows 7 without making a clean install, maybe that caused the error in the first place...

  7. I had the same problem as described in this forum and came across this whilst trawling the net...I followed redgenerals steps and all worked for me without having to reinstall windows 10 over the top of the original installation...overall i would say the process took about an hour to complete...Also highly advise if anyone else attempts this to copy and paste redgenerals commands to cause any confusion.

    Much appreciated for the post!

    Standard apps + Store app are all greyed out

    Can someone elaborate on Redgeneral's steps, specifically #6 as I get error messages such as:

    Unexpected token '$(' in expression or statement OR
    Unexpected token '\AppManifest.xml"

    Please explain with an example how to complete the following:

    Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}"

    I spent hours over the weekend. I know I am missing something. I upgraded to Windows 10 Home from Windows 8.1
