  1. System32 Files deleted leading to some apps not opening


    Hi.A few days ago I tried to permanently delete the System32 Folder to free up space in my computer, but Windows did force me to keep certain files. Most apps in my computer seem to still open normally, but I can't open Axure XP anymore. The app won't just respond when I open it. The Windows startup is now much slower than before.Is there anyway to fix these issues other than resetting Windows?I'd add that I once reset Windows and keep the old system32 folder in an external drive. Should I copy that folder into the current one, will it solve the problems?Thanks

    :)

    Mail app will not open on 10041.

    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. System32 Files deleted leading to some apps not opening :)

    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)

    System32 Files deleted leading to some apps not opening

    Can I customize the list of suggest apps in the "Open with" menu?

    Hi, FWIW, I found that Atlantis Word was already added to the Open With list for .pdf's - although it is incapable of opening them.
    (Is that so with Word?)

    It did show in the Open With list, and when clicked stated it could not open the pdf except as a text file (or similar). I.e. it gave a sensible warning message.

    I therefore chose to delete it from the Open With options for pdf. Why it was added I don't know.

    In your case it seemed Word had been successfully added - you add an item, click to Save it, and then should see this confirmation:

    Perhaps if a program not registered to handle an extension is added to the Open With list for that extension, it doesn't appear in the menu- would have to test that.

    ** Well, I tried adding Wordpad to the OW list for png, and it appeared in it, and attempted to open the file- garbage of course.

    I wonder if Word might have appeared in the Choose another app list..

    Example of a lot of options being presented (png)
