    Having issues with ALL metro apps


    Something happened with the Release Preview's app on my end. Everyone of them will not start up. They all continue to have live updates, but none of them will initialize and launch, except for IE10.

    I've tried switching to a local account from using my Microsoft account, and then going back to the Microsoft account, no go.

    I thought I could reinstall an app, but the Windows Store won't open either.

    Right now, I'm sfc /scannow and hopefully that could work.

    Is anyone else having issues?

    Hello Andy,

    Double check to make sure that you have a screen resolution of at least 1024 x 768 to be able to access the Windows Store and to download and run apps.

    Hope this helps for now,
    Shawn

    I got it fixed, sfc /scannow and a reboot somehow fixed.
