    Possible solution for metro apps crashing at launch.


    After a long search, I finally found a solution to the problem where metro apps crash after briefly showing the splash screen.

    What did the trick with me was installing the "media pack for the N version of windows 8.1" (if your Windows version would be "N" - didn't know it was the case with my pc). Could also work for Windows 8 probably.

    Hope this helps!

Metro Apps Crashing
I installed Windows 8 but I never got to get the Metro Apps working... The screen with the logo comes up, but then it just goes to a green screen and then back to the home screen! I was suspecting that it had to do with the Video driver or Silverlight.. but I guess not! Anyway has an idea?
