    Why Do Apps Still Work After Reinstall


    Hi,

    I reinstalled Windows awhile ago. Formatted and partitioned the system SSD ahead of time. I have a secondary HDD with media that I left alone.

    After the install I tried running a game from the secondary HDD and it ran. My question is how? I thought if I install a program even if it is off the OS drive that the installation would still have made alterations to the previous Windows' registry, settings, files, etc. I don't see how this can run under a new OS install without errors.

    :)

    reinstall store app windows 10

    Did not work for me. I troed it 3 times, allways got an error.

    Hi Fernando,

    These are the steps to resolve the issue with Windows Store app itself. For better assistance, we suggest creating a new thread about Windows 10 apps installation.

    Regards.

    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)
