    Sticky Notes upgrade - cannot access C:\Program Files\WindowsApps


    Hi guys,

    Following the windows 10 upgrade, sticky notes was also upgraded to verson 3.0.118.0 however we are having a slight issue.

    Anyone who starts up or searching within the sticky notes app gets the error that is attached. This is for domain users and for domain admins. It looks like the only users who are able to access this path are local users and admins, not users on the domain. And the owner is set to trusted installer.

    When you click OK, the error does go away, but it pops up after every restart.

    Does anyone know how to overcome this and prevent users getting this error please?

    Thanks,
    Dan

    :)

    Retrieve and Install Sticky Notes via PowerShell

    Hi Matty,

    Reinstalling an application via PowerShell needs an administrator access to continue. If you have administrator access, you can follow the steps below to install Sticky Notes using PowerShell:

    • Open PowerShell with admin rights. To do so, type Windows
      PowerShell in the search box to see PowerShell in results, right-click on PowerShell, and then click
      Run as administrator option.
    • In the PowerShell prompt, type the following command and press the Enter key:

      Get-Appxpackage –Allusers

      Scroll down and locate the entry of the app that you want to reinstall and copy the package name. Since you are looking for the Sticky Notes app, locate the Sticky Notes entry, and then copy the package name of Sticky Notes.
    • Now, you will need to execute the following command to add the app:

      Add-AppxPackage -register "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\PackageFullName\appxmanifest.xml" -DisableDevelopmentMode

      Replace PackageFullName term in the above command with the copied PackageFullName information from step 2.

    If you do not have an administrator access to your computer, we suggest that you contact your IT admin to be able to install Sticky Notes via PowerShell.

    Should you need further assistance, don't hesitate to get back to us.

    Was this the WIndows 10 Upgrade from WIndows 7, 8 or 8.1?

    Check now for a C:\Windows.old folder that is created during an Upgrade. If that folder is found, you can

    Show Hidden Files and Folders in Windows 10
    and then follow the steps here:

    • To backup sticky notes in Windows 10/8.1/8/7:
    STEP 1. Type %AppData%\Microsoft\Sticky Notes in the windows.old folder Search box.

    STEP 2. Copy StickyNotes.snt to a safe location.

    • To restore sticky notes:
    STEP 1. Type %AppData%\Microsoft\Sticky Notes in start menu search box or run and press Enter.

    STEP 2. Copy the StickyNotes.snt file from your backup folder and paste it in the folder that opens. Agree to overwrite the old file, or delete it first before copying. If it balks then install and use the

    Take Ownership Shortcut
    on the folder so you can replace the .snt file.

    If you don't have Windows.old folder, do you have a backup image of your old install which we can help you mount to browse into the old files?

    If not then your notes may be lost. In the future use Notepad or Wordpad which can more easily save Files to your Documents, or back up the Sticky Notes file regularly following the above.

    Sticky Notes upgrade - cannot access C:\Program Files\WindowsApps

    Getting full access to C:\Program Files\WindowsApps


    Hey x509,
    IIRC ... it's not actually a corrupt entry, but a special permission/condition (Exists:WIN://SYSAPPID) for Users(Pc-Name\Users) and shouldn't be removed. If you must change permissions on the WindowsApps folder and/or sub folders/files .... I suggest you get familiar with ICACLS first and save the current WindowsApps Folder / Sub Folders / File permissions to a acl.txt file, so you can restore them in case you break something (which is very likely when messing with permissions)
