    Windows Photos App crashes

    So since today my Photos App is crashing as soon as i open it. It goes into a blackscreen for about 2-3 Seconds and than crashes.

    Information about the error:
    This Crash is generating chrash dumps that contain the error code 0xC0000602 in module mrt100_app.dll or 0xc000027b in module twinapi.appcore.dll.

    I found two intresting facts about the error:
    - If I try a system restore to a point created 3 days ago, the App starts working again. A few minutes after using the system, the app starts crashing again.
    - I created a new local account and the app does seem to work on that new account until now.

    Steps I have tried:
    - Reinstall Photos app by uninstalling it using Powershell and rerisntalling it - did not change anything
    - Reregister the App - did not change anything
    - Scan the System with sfc and dism - no errors
    - Use System resstore - see above, did only work for a few minutes.

    Microsoft Support suggested reinstalling Windows, but I do non really want to reinstall the whole system just because one app is not working...

  3. windows 10 photo app crashes after approx 10 seconds

    Hi Dave,

    I do appreciate your efforts and time.

    Do you receive any error message before crashing?

    I suggest you to try the steps below if you have not yet tried.

    I would suggest you to reset Windows store.


    • Right click on start and select ‘RUN’.

    • In the Run window, type WSReset.exe and click “Ok”.
    If the Photos app is the only one crashing, it could be a problem with the Photos app database. To reset the database, perform the following:

    1. Press windows button + R

    2. Type: %appdata%\..\Local\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.Photos_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState

    3. Delete all the contents of that folder.

    Please get back to us with the required information to assist you further.
