  1. Windows 10 1909 x64 Windows Search and UWP Apps quit working


    So, here's the deal; this started a few days ago. Haven't had any problems up til now with any version of Windows 10. However, recently, there started to be an issue where I can't search on the Start menu, can't search in File Explorer, Search in Settings still works, but nowhere else. Mail will crash after clicking an email, Calculator won't even launch, and if I click on the clock in the System Tray, nothing happens. Just about every UWP app installed fails to launch, and even 32-bit and 64-bit desktop applications start to hang.


    I've tried troubleshooters they can't find any problems, I've done the DISM scans No system component corruption found, I've tried resetting the affected UWP apps Does nothing, and I've even tried suggested MSU packages. Those just tell me that they're not able to install due to Windows version. 18363.836. Restarting helps for a time, but the problem eventually comes back. It's gotten to the point where I have to reboot my machine at least once per day.


    I'm currently getting ready to install the latest slow ring build of Windows 10 version 2004 to see if that helps with anything, as I read about the 19013 build having fixes for at leastsome of the issues.. If that doesn't work, I think I'm going to have to do a complete clean install. Again. For a total of twice in the past 6 months. The last time was my fault; I went screwing around with audio settings and couldn't get it back, so I had to resort to a refresh.


    This is getting extremely frustrating.


    If it helps anyone, my rig is set up thusly:


    CPU: AMD FX-8350 4 Cores, 4 Threads @ 4.00GHz

    GPU: XFX RX 580 8GB

    RAM: 24 GB

    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 rev 5.0

    Boot Drive is a 256 GB SSD

    Storage is 2.66 TB spread across 4 drives, 1TB, 1TB, 500GB, 160GB

    I have a CD/DVD burner/BD-ROM combo drive

    :)

  2. Microsoft Adds Ability to Block Win32 Apps from Install on Windows 10

    Yes, UWP is an interpreter, an app running in UWP can't function without the interpreter. Only the UWP core has access to the actual hardware, the app does not.

    By not having direct access to the hardware, they perform slower. UWP has to translate everything and make sure it passes safety and security checks.

    If UWP has issues, all of the apps running on top of it also will. I've seen that in early release of Windows 10 where all UWP based, Windows-included apps broke (Edge, Calculator, Mail, etc.). Granted, it was only broke in one user account.

    As you may already know, Windows 10 (as well as Windows 8) allow you to log in with a valid Microsoft account, instead of creating a local account that only works on your machine. However, you may prefer to keep a local account for privacy reasons. If you do, though, some Windows 10 features—like Cortana—may not work. Despite the default behavior, the Windows 10 Store is not one of them. You can still log in to your Microsoft account for just the Store without switching to a full Microsoft account. The process, however, is not terribly obvious. To do so, follow these steps:

    • Launch the Store from your Start menu.
    • Click the user icon next to the search box.
    • Click “Sign-in” from the menu that appears.
    • Choose “Microsoft account” and log in like normal.
    • When the “Make it yours” box appears do not enter your password. Instead, click “Sign in to just this app instead.”

    Windows 10 1909 x64 Windows Search and UWP Apps quit working

    Weather App not working windows 8.1

    I have no problems with the weather app... on my pc, tablets, laptops, or windows phones.
    Must be regional/local problems.

    Or, your store/app data files may be corrupt.
    Might want to try the apps troubleshooter.
