    Had the same problem with the Weather App, (no Libre Office installed) Don't really use the Weather App anyway but it still bugged me but I am tired of tracking down bad MS Updates. Purchased this wonderful desktop 18 months and the only problems I have ever experienced were caused by MS updates, Thanks MS

    I don't know who comes up with these fixes but the one discussed here worked for me.

    Thanks Much, Whoever you are.

    That about sums it all up for me to. A great OS 'spoiled' by all the problem updates and W10 compatibility stuff.

    After changing configuration_3.0.4.336.sqlite to configuration_3.0.2.258.sqlite to get the weather app working a few days ago, configuration_3.0.4.336.sqlite returned today on a couple of machines. Although I now have two sqlite files, the weather app still seems to be working....at least for the time being.

    Anyone else notice this on their machines?

    I'm thinking about deleting the 3.
    0.2.258.sqlite to see if this new 3.0.4.336.sqlite works. Unfortunately I'm short on time today and will probably test this out on the weekend.

    Edit: I should mention that I downloaded 8 optional updates yesterday, so I don't know if that had something do with the above mentioned issue.

    Cheers.

    Yeah, I had that pending file, which then lost its pending state. Now I had two files, the previous file and the new one. Checking that the app wasn't running, I moved the previously renamed file (configuration_3.0.2.258.sqlite) elsewhere, then checked that the app still worked, which it did, then restarted the machine and checked again, which also worked. I had those eight updates, too, and one of them did, in a roundabout way, suggest to me that it might be a fix for this issue, as it dealt with Windows apps and login issues (https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/kb/3091297).

    Edit: Made it clearer that I had, for a moment, two sqlite files.

    I renamed the file back to 3.0.4.336. this morning and then applied the updates. Result broken. Following something I read on the MS thread I then deleted the three files, Configuration, BootCache.json and Instrumentation Data, opened the app and it all works OK. The config folder has not reappeared.

    Just an update to the weather app issue.

    Well, that "Configuration" folder where those two sqlite files were located is now completely gone. Weather app appears to be working without that folder and the two files missing.

    Hopefully we all can move forward from this tragic event.

    Just checked, and you're right, the folder's gone but all works fine. Ah well, pesky sqlite files, you won't be missed.

    Yes, its all working well at the moment.

    (I thought I'd marked this as resolved... I'll do it now. And then it will be time for a new thread next month... Why me, AGAIN)
