    WPA closes instantly - upon launch


    I had some error causing Windows Performance Analyzer to crash upon launch. I did clean install and it worked, but now it doesn't work again (different error) LOL...
    Ofc. 3 search engines coldn't find anything about Event Viewer errors - classic... And I don't know how difficult it is to debugg application to find cause of an issue, I guess it depends... It worked on clean install awhile and now all the sudden again it crashes again upon launch... No idea why! No corruption both using (sfc/dism), no erorrs in Event Viewer... No one has any idea even Microsoft, which doesn't surprise me...

    I also found this:
    Windows Performance Analyzer (WPA) won't run. W10 Pro X64 17763.292 I installed it as performance toolkit. There is no option to install only WPR, in both cases when using ADKsetup, or Windows SDK!

    Finding my WPA key...

    With such new information, I think your router is not configured to use WPA, but another authenticating method which I not familiar with. Maybe if you use the username and password you use for your cellphone, you may be able to access your router.

    slyfox2151, I was not aware of that. I know WPA is far more secure that WEP just didn't know how harder it was to crack it. And yes, I knew he had WPA not WEP. I was suggesting based on my not-so-applicable knowledge.

  3. Unable to launch many gaming related apps/MS store/gamepass games

    • I am unable to launch game bar on my PC (appears to open but closes instantly) - it WAS working fine a few days ago.
    • I am unable to launch microsoft store on my PC (appears to open but closes instantly) - it WAS working fine a few days ago.
    • I cannot open xbox console companion on windows (appears to open but closes instantly)
    • Many gamepass games won't launch, some say im not logged in (but i obviously am logged into my gamepass account)

      I have tried a number of solutions I found on the internet from simple reinstall to running various command prompt and powershell commands, I have ensured I have folder and file permissions for the microsoft apps folder on this account.

      Because I cannot launch the microsoft store I can't attempt to reinstall some items.

    Finding my WPA key...

    Well, if you really can't reset, there's always hacking. I don't know about WPA protocols, but there are tons of hacking tools to WPE, for example. There is also a Linux Distro specially for internet hacking (although they consider it "security-check") called Backtrack. Even though I suggested it, I don`t think this goes against the rules since you'll be doing to yourself. I AM NOT suggesting you to hack other people NOR recommending it.
