  1. Windows Store apps not installing


    So, I have to admit that this is the result of my own stupidity.


    I wanted to move over my C:\Users\USERNAME folder to a separate drive (D:\) to wear less on my ssd said and done, I changed the location of documents, desktop, music etc via properties on the folders in quick access in explorers sidebar, and per some source moved NTUSER.DAT and changed \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\S-1-5-21-[...]\ProfileImagePath to D:\ this resulted in a new AppData folder being created as D:\AppData, so to avoid conflicts i copied over everything from C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData to D:\AppData, and well then all hell broke loose. Basically all windows store apps stopped working for some reason and i couldn't set my desktop wallpaper to any image.


    So i sighed in resignation and changed ProfileImagePath back but that did not resolve the windows store issue fully, after re-enabling all applications via powershell i still can't install applications but get the error 0x80070005, which seems to be a generic error potentially connected to permissions. (It has also resulted in occasional issues opening the start menu and/or search function. but i believe that's semi-unrelated)

    I have tried making sure permissions on C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Packages are correct by comparing with a reference user account where everything works but that did not help.


    (For reference the re-enable command, Powershell run as administrator is: `Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers| Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml" -Verbose }`)


    I have also tried the methods suggested here: Can't install any apps from store windows 10 without luck, I have partially succeeded by going into settings "programs and functions" -> Windows Store -> Advanced and resetting the app there. Then running the above mentioned command to re-enable all apps. That seem to work until the next reboot.


    Also google backup and sync has stopped working, it instantly craches without any message on launch. I've tried reinstalling and clearing C:\Users\svant\AppData\Local\Google\Drive and \HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\Drive before reinstalling, without luck, it still crashes without any error message.


    Is there anything else I can try or some folder i have missed to clear or change permissions on, Or is my only remaining option to delete my acount on the computer and start anew? (I'm trying to avoid that because I'm not sure how that'd effect my remaining allowed installs of Microsoft Office 365 and Ableton Live)


    If nothing else let this post be a word of warning: DO NOT TRY TO MOVE ALL OF YOUR C:\Users\USERNAME FOLDER TO A SEPARATE DRIVE. It is a dumb idea and all hell will break loose.

  2. Windows Store to Pack "Mature" Games and Apps

    They announce this right after they said weren't going to carry any of it... Ya think some investors told them to stfu and take money? *Laugh :laugh:

    I wonder how long it will be before you can't install noncertified apps? The app store is the 1st stepping stone. Although, you'd have to be an idiot to give 30% to these clowns.
