  1. Store app updates over and over


    Since April’s feature update I notice some apps constantly offer a update despite obediently updating them. Phone, alarms and a few other useless ones. I never allow auto updating of apps preferring to manually check and update. Despite having this turned off I believe store still checks for updates without installing them as I go in and already see app updates offered. These apps seem to appear daily, I’ll update them and do a check and it says everything up to date but then a day or so later they are back. Bit annoying and wonder if others fight the same battle. Prob not noticed by many as I’d imagine auto update is left on by the majority. This happens for exact same apps for every single one of our PCs. Seems to be a nice intro by the April feature update! Launching the apps is no problem , they all work fine but just seem to constantly offer updates and their version number never changes (unless it’s a proper update)

    Mail app will not open on 10041.


    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. *Smile

    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)
