  1. Windows 10 Calculator and other UWP apps crashing


    Currently having an issue when I launch either Calculator or the Photos app the only apps I really use on Windows 10 it crashes and force closes immediately. I tried resetting, reinstalling the apps using powershell commands following this guide here but to no avail. Also tried directly from Settings and doing a reset and complete reinstall from the Microsoft Store.

    I recently did a in-place upgrade for Windows 10 and the same issue occurs. I tried doing sfc /scannow, DISM repair, and using the Settings Windows Store Apps troubleshooter. I checked my event viewer and see these errors. I also tried making a brand new user account w/ admin privileges same issue. Tried safe mode same thing.

    Calculator App event viewer logs:

    Code:
    Photos App event viewer logs:

    Code:
    I also tried launching it directly from C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.WindowsCalculator_10.1908.0.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\Calculator.exe and I get these specific error messages.

    I've tried every other app and they work fine on my PC besides these two apps that I only use the most. Just for testing I've also tried searching for "@{Microsoft.WindowsCalculator" in my Registry Finder program and resetting / deleting all values to see if it would have any type of effect same issue. Of course I made a system restore point / backup before doing so just to see if it would help but still the issue is persisting.

  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.

  3. Error 0x2efd in XMLHttpRequests crashes Hosted Web UWP App

    Hi,

    i also posted this question in the developer forums, cause it is more appropriate there:

    [UWP][HTML]Error 0x2efd in XMLHttpRequests crashes Hosted Web UWP App

    But to give you the asked infos:

    • It is a self developed Hosted WebApp
    • The Windows is updated, Version in previous post
    • The issue started when i first tested the App offline
    • The troubleshooting steps are all described in my post
    • No Screenshot, cause the app crashes silently, when debugging the Exception comes from the WWAHost
    Greetings

  4. Windows 10 Calculator and other UWP apps crashing

    Calculator app crashing for one specific user on domain

    One of our domain users was having an issue with an unrelated program and, since we had very little information to go on, we removed her local profile from the PC and had her start over from scratch. Since then, her calculator app crashes as it's launching.
    It will open a blue window and then immediately close. It still works for other users logged into the same PC though. We have tried the following steps in this order trying to resolve this issue for her:

    • Terminated the app
    • Reset the app
    • Performed a Windows update to 1903 (I think it was 1809 previously)
    • Uninstalled then re-installed the app (uninstalling wasn't an option prior to the update)
    • We've tried re-registering the apps using this powershell script:
      • Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)AppXManifest.xml”}
    • Ended the Runtime Broker background process
    • Ran the built in Windows App troubleshooter and rebooted afterwards
    • Ran WSReset.exe

    These were most of the solutions I could find by searching. Is there any other possible solution? I don't want to remove and recreate her profile again since that would be a pain for her to do for the second time in two days and it's not guaranteed to
    work since that's what sparked this issue in the first place.

    Thanks for any help or suggestions you have.
