    Windows 8 Tiles - None of the tiles will respond.


    I have attached an image with the problem i have, I don't know what has happened but every icon there without an image won't open. I.E Weather App and other Microsoft apps that where previously installed? Has anyone else had this problem and knows how to fix the error?

    Hello t3rr11, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Syncing the app licenses may be able to help with this.

    Thanks for replying, i did that and there where no problems but the apps still don't open they now display there names as Microsoft.WindowsLive.Calender and such. (As attached file displays)

    I am waiting for updates to download and install that i hope will fix the problem but any other idea's while we wait?

    (EDIT)

    The updates didn't fix the problem. So yeah still stuck with the Microsoft.WindowsLive.Calender Issue.

    If you like, you could try switching your account to a local account, then switch it back to your Microsoft account to see if that may toggle them to work again without losing anything.

    Local Account - Switch to in Windows 8

    Microsoft Account - Switch to in Windows 8

    I'm not sure what else to suggest other than to refresh Windows since you've already tried everything above.
