Preferred Solution: Windows 8 apps won't work on laptop

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Windows 8 apps won't work on laptop

can you think back to what was installed around that time?

video driver is a common culprit. so is installing a third-party antivirus or firewall. also, were any changes made to the router or network configuration? is this laptop able to connect to another network and have these apps/Windows Defender function properly?

I have checked everywhere online and I haven't found a single explanation for this I have user accounts Administrator initial user new user So the initial user is the one for work work one Apps don't Windows for others. but user, you are forced to create when first setting up Windows It's a local user meaning that I set it up without signing into a MSA In both the Administrator and the initial user all the WinRT apps tiles work Like the weather will show up and everything WITNESS Whether I change the Initial User to Standard or Administrator everything still works fine Of course the Administrator can't open WinRT apps which is standard and normal And the initial user can't use apps without signing into MSA But it all still works perfectly fine The problem is with the Windows Apps don't work for one user, but work for others. new user The new user is meant to be in Administrator mode because it's Windows Apps don't work for one user, but work for others. my main account But whether I set it up as Standard or Administrator it's the same thing None of my WinRT apps work WITNESS Even when I sign into my MSA with the new user Windows Apps don't work for one user, but work for others. it's still the same thing It synchronizes to my OneDrive online It recognizes that I'm completely signed in online Yet it's still the exact same thing with the WinRT apps None of them work Even when I try to open up the Windows Store It just continues to try to open but doesn't go all the way through So whether I'm signed into my MSA for the third user or not it still gives the same problem I ran Windows Update and it worked perfectly Everything is up to date

A:Windows Apps don't work for one user, but work for others.

I created a 4th account using an MSA instead of creating it as a local account. And it still has the same problem as the third account. Like I said, whether the account is created with an MSA or if an account was created as a local user, and signed into a MSA. It's the same extremely frustrating problem. I can't do anything like this.

I've got an old 16-bit Windows 95 game called "Pirates: Captain's Quest" that I want to play. It won't run in straight Windows XP, won't work with the executable set to Windows 95 compatability mode, and won't run from DOSbox ("this game must be run from microsoft windows").

Any suggestions?

The error I get trying to launch from XP is:

You could try right clicking and running it under a different compatability or 256 colors or something. The only program I remember using for old games was VDMSound... and something close to DosBox.

Hi there,

I just installed windows 8 yesterday. I've been able to use a few apps like mail, store and skype. But other apps like music or games don't work. most of the apps downloaded don't work either like wikipedia or IM+. I tried using fiddler, turning off my antivirus (trendmicro security), refreshed (which was a pain because i had to install all my stuff again). nothing seems too work. any suggestions?

And for some reason starcraft 2 couldn't work. Steam works fine.

Please help thanks

HOW did you get Skype to work!?!?

When I open the app it says it needs to be updated. So, I click it to update and it will either say pending forever or say downloading with only a tiny bit of green and won't move for HOURS. Did your Skype just automatically work!?

I've had windows 8 for a bit, but since I've installed the OS not a single one of my windows apps will work. I've tried a lot of options and none fix it. I will open up a app ( windows store app or PC settings for example) and it will open and display the icon and blown up screen then immediately minimizes and will not allow me to maximize it. I'm so tired of it! I can't download any new apps or update my old ones let alone use any of them. I ran a basic trouble shoot through Microsoft and it came up at one point saying I need a Microsoft account. which is crazy because I've put in my CD key like 50 times and registered it when I put the OS on this computer. Please help me because i'm getting really tired of windows 8.1's shenanigans.

I'm running version 1511, (OS Build 10586.318). I can't remember when it started, but it's a pain. I've looked up the issue online, but nothing seems to be the EXACT same problem with me.

Hi,

I have found that the Windows 10 app store disappeared from my system, apps like calculator installed through the app store do not start. The most strange thing is that all those apps has some strange strings appended in front of the original app names. By clicking those apps, they me to no where. For example, searching "Store" on the startup, the screen snapshot is shown below:
The other snapshot is below, where the red brick on the left corner should be the App Store tile. Applications not installed through the app store like OneNote still work.
I have tried a few solutions that I can find online. None works for me. For example, this one: Windows App Store doesnt load after Windows 10 upgrade! | OUC1TOO

A:Windows 8 metro apps do not work

This is the sort of issue that makes IT departments go absolutely crazy, and why most avoid new versions of Windows until the first Service Pack appears.

Since its such a mind-boggling oversight on Microsoft's part, I thought I'd take a look around, and see what fellow sufferer's of the issue had come up with. You've already covered quite a few of the strategies, but here are a couple more that some users have come up with.
_______________

Enable the Windows Update Service
It appears that the Windows Store and possibly other Metro apps rely on a network component of the Windows Update Service. For some users, enabling this service fixes the trouble with Metro apps not opening. For domain accounts, to make the fix stick, the policy would probably have to be altered to allow the service to run (as it is commonly disabled).

Clear the store cache
a) Press "Windows key + R"
b) Type " wsreset.exe" and click OK

Proxy issues:
---1--- A windows internal HTTP service might not be using the proxy settings defined in IE. Running the following command changes the service to use the IE proxy settings. For some users, this has then enabled the Windows Store to work.

Open a command prompt with 'Run as Administrator' and type:
netsh
winhttp
import proxy source=ie
Now go back to the store and try it and see if that fixed your issue.

---2---Or: Disable Proxy connection if enabled
(use this only if your network setup does not require a proxy)
a)Press ?Windows + W? and type ?Internet Options? and press enter.
b)Click on ?Connections? tab.
c)Click on ?LAN settings?.
d)Uncheck ?Use a proxy server for your LAN?.
e)Under ?Automatic Configuration? select ?Automatically detect settings?.
f)Click on ?Ok? and click on ?Apply? and ?Ok? again.

HyperV
I saved this weirdest of solutions for last. I have no idea why simply enabling the HyperV feature in the computers Bios (if available there), and adding the feature in "Programs & Features" in the Control Panel (under turn Windows features on and off), should make Metro apps work. But some users (at least in a couple of threads) have reported:

Quote:




Adding Hyper-V feature to the computer fixed the issue. I can now access store and add also interact with Modern (Metro) apps.




How crazy is that! They didn't add any virtual machines, they just enabled the feature. I'm going to keep an eye out for more information, in case a reasonable explanation appears (and I'll post it here).

Best of luck

What were you doing before all of this happened? What kind of third party Security software are you using ? Have you tried the Dism fix yet.

You will find that very few people even use the packaged apps from Microsoft, because they were not very well thought out to begin with and can be broken by just simple changes on the OS install.

My keyboard does not work within Windows Store and it's Apps. I cannot type anything in the search of the store, or within the Xbox App. I can right click and paste in information and click "Go" and that works just fine. But just no keyboard input works. Keyboard works fine everywhere else.

I've googled the issue and I can't find ANY other people have this issue. I think it might be related to when I completely removed Cortana and SearchUI, but I am not sure.

If I select Apps & Features under the system menu on Windows 10 I get the scrolling dots at the top of the window but no apps ever get listed, and eventually the window seems to time out and close itself. All of the other system menu options work fine and add/remove programs which I believe from reading around is linked into Apps & Features operates correctly.
I have run all the usual standard potential fixes like sfc /scannow and even utliised the Winfix for windows app on this very website, and nothing has been reported as being an issue. I tried re-imaging back to an early saved image of mine and the first time I clicked on Apps & Features it came up correctly but any subsequent selection went back to the same issue. I have literally tried everything and have so far come up blank (just like the menu option)!
Any thoughts?

I have been facing this issue from the day one since I installed Windows 10 on my laptop (Dell XPS L502x).

Native Windows Applications like all browsers, office products etc. anything that is not from the Store, works fine. I can use Touch Pad scrolling with no trouble. e.g. on Internet Explorer, Chrome, MS Word, etc.

But the apps that come out of store or the apps like those which come pre-built with Windows 10 such as new Settings UI, Microsoft Edge. Touch Pad scrolling just don't work with these apps. When I perform scrolling the scroll-icon appears but doesn't scroll the content.

This issue is only with Touch Pad. External Mouse works great with scrolling on any kind of app.

Hope to find a solution here.
Thanks

PS: drivers are all good on the machine and up to date with no warning or error.

A:Windows 10, Start Menu, Search or any microsoft apps doesn't work...

Similar problem only I could not get Windows installed apps to open properly. I have a Lenovo G560 with a Dynadock plugged into a USB port and two additional monitors connected to the laptop (one directly and one through the Dynadock. In anticipation of installing Win 10, I upgrade my RAM and replaced my hdd with an SSD drive. I am upgrading from Windows 7 SP1 Home Premium. I did the upgrade and not a clean install. The upgrade seemed to go just fine. The first thing I noticed was and Notices icon so I clicked on it and some notices appeared. I tried to click on those but as soon as I moved the mouse off of the notices icon the list disappeared. The same thing happened when I went to Start. I rebooted the computer and the above problems went away. So I began exploring around the Start Menu. I got cortana to recognize Hey Cortana and she even told me a joke. When I asked her to play Rock Paper Scissors, she started having problems. Again I rebooted, and she could tell a joke but no RPS. Then I asked her to open MS Edge but that did not work. Tried myself by clicking on the E icon and I got an error message saying it could not find Internet Explorer.exe. Went to Start Menu and tried to start Edge. It looked like it was going to but nothing appeared. I went to Task Manager and there it was running so I ended the process and tried again. No joy. Again reboot. First thing was to open Edge from Start Menu. That worked-- it opened. Tried to go to settings in the Start Menu but it acted like Edge above. It was running in Task Manager but not visible to me. Chrome, Lync, Word, Outlook, all worked. Cortana worked but when I tried other apps like Calculator, they did not work. My keyboard has a calculator launch button and that did not work either. I did notice that the apps that appeared not to work actually were running but closing them in Task Manager did not help. I could get the app to work if I rebooted and clicked on the app first before anything else. After about 2 hours of rebooting only to not have apps work and not really able to see what Win 10 could do, I restored Windows 7.

Hi,

I am using the SDLC Threat Modelling tool 2016 by Microsoft on a Windows 10 virtual Box 32-bit.

When I am trying to generate a final report, it discards all the different risk ratings for each threat, and instead of having the respective high, medium, low levels next to each threat, it produces a html report putting only high next to each
one of them.

Any help?

Hi . i have a windows 8 laptop and was woundering why i cant use a app like Pandora for my laptop . its in your windows phone app sotre but not for the laptop store?? . i don't understand why. both are the same . or is it the app itself only going for windows phone?? . plzz help i would love to get all access to all apps on windows phone for my laptop. ty

A:Why cant i have windows phone apps on laptop app store

This is intentional for a few reasons.

One, it's not nice to have an app on your Windows Phone simply blown up to a larger screen. The app has to be redeveloped for screen estate and size considerations.

Second is the fact that Windows Phone doesn't have the system contracts bar, or Charms bar, so that can't simply work that way.

Third is that the code itself is different, Windows 8 uses WinRT code, Windows Phone I believe uses the WinPRT coding structure, Xbox One I think uses WinXRT code. These are similar, but different.

The Pandora app probably won't come to Windows 8 anytime soon because... It's called a web browser. This is the thing about Windows 8 is that most developers probably aren't and shouldn't develop app versions of websites. It makes no sense to have a PC that uses typical Desktop web browsers, that have no settings of changing the site from being mobile or Desktop rendered, to have an app for ebay, or Amazon, or Pandora, or Facebook.

Also, who are you directing this at? We're not Microsoft.

I've had this laptop for about one week now and I must have hit or turned something off or changed something.

For the first number of days when I opened things I would get the black bar at the bottom of the screen to pin sites to and I would go to the top of the screen with my mouse to see everything that was open.

But as of yesterday even though I still have the Windows 8 Start Menu with the tiles, everything I open seems to open in desktop mode and with all the tabs across the top. And I no longer get the black bar along the bottom for pinning. I can only pin from IE buy clicking on the small tools icon in the upper right corner.

Has anyone else encountered this?

Thanks,

Christine

Hi KBHopper and welcome to Tenforums.
Sorry about your problems. I would suggest just doing a reset, or, if you've got the thing setup already and don't want to start from square one, do a repair install using an in-place upgrade. It's easy, and should resolve your issues. Basically, you download the ISO from MSTechBench, right-click and mount it, then run setup.exe. It will maintain all your programs and files, and fix everything else in the OS.

Hope that helps!

I was given a Windows 8.1 tablet that once had a detachable keyboard which the guy lost. he reset the whole computer and after I got my information on it instead. After the reset, Windows was no longer activated and I had to reactivate it. which neither of us knows why, it was activated before we did a data factory reset. after I created my user, I installed a bunch of exes. now I go to try to see if I could test out the Windows Store to search for apps. but I search "Windows Store" or "app store" and several other things that may bring it up, but it always says, "no apps match your search" like if the Windows store is missing or somehow magically removed with the reset process. How do I get it back?

I never tried sysprepping 10 but i have faced similar issues with 8.1. Turned out that you need to save the default app associations to an XML file using DISM (before Generalizing the image ) and later import it.

Export or Import Default Application Associations

Configure, export, import App File Associations in Windows 8.1

I have used "Setupcomplete.cmd" to auto import the app associations during the last face of install.

Add a Custom Script to Windows Setup
You may also need to disable the new app notification before generalizing the image.

Hi all, from some days I have a problem with my windows 8. The native applications (like Store, Music, Settings, etc) don't work. If I click on them, it show the corrispondent icon and after 3-4 seconds the app crash and I return on desktop. Same thing if I try to use the search function. I also noticed that inserting removable media (usb, hard disk etc) can not navigate inside (always crash), and if I go on Download folder, If I scroll down, crash and back to the desktop. All of this happened in a few days, before everything was fine. I didn't install strange application nor any other antivirus. What happened?

A:Win apps don't work (and not just)

If you are running an AV real time shield, turn it off to see what happens.

Post the result here before the next step.

I was using Windows 10 build 10316 normally until I use the Razer Game Booster.
After that, All Applications List in the start menu no longer shows any application...

I uninstalled the program but the problem persists.

Now, I update to build 10328 and nothing changes!

Any help?

Well, yes, it does.
Question is if there's any way to avoid this beside the a-b-c (sfc, powershell) and if there's not how to import all my settings and files to my new profile.

So I recently 'upgraded' to the very app-centric windows 8 and snagged a great Aspire U touchscreen all in one I thought would be optimal with it. Every app works outstandingly but I can't seem to get a normal browser like IE Firefox or Chrome to work for beans. I might get a homepage after 45 mins but forget actually accomplishing anything. I swore the browser worked the first day I got it?

Any thoughts?

I just installed 8 fresh on a laptop today. Turned UAC to bottom, rebooted. Obviously the Metro apps would not work.

So then I put UAC one level up from bottom. And now it has the same issue as you.

Moral of the story: Put UAC to default, reboot and then give it a try. I didn't bother testing because I don't really care either way.

My computer has suddenly (in the past 24 hours) started exhibiting a number of problems.

- When I run my regular browser (firefox) and search for sites in google, when I click on links, my browser is sometimes (but not always) redirected to other sites: network.dsidemarketing.com, freesearchquick.com, 109.goldwebsearch.com, and some others I think. (I can try and find more if that?s useful). It seems to do this infrequently ? Maybe 1 click in every 20 or so ? but consistently.

- It appears that at least some programs that could previously access the internet can?t access it anymore. Mozilla thunderbird reports ?Failed to connect to server?. Google chrome appears to have stopped working.

- I tried downloading malwarebytes anti-malware. It seems to have installed okay, but when I run it, nothing seems to happen.

Any suggestions for what the problem might be or what I should do? Happy, of couse, to provide any more info.

Thanks!

A:redirects in firefox, other net apps don't work

I was able to get malwarebytes to run, by making a copy of the .exe file with a new name and funning that. But I can't get it to "update", I believe because it can't get internet access (as mentioned above: If seems like all apps other than firefox are blocked from the net). I'm running the "quick scan" now and will post results...

Had my computer shut itself off and reboot for the first time as I was registering with this forum, but the setup problem seems to have taken place after an install of another program after the fresh install. I have re-formatted and reinstalled xp pro and now I was able to setup another program but not the one that it worked on before. Seems to be only exe files that it hates.

Microsoft Edge started not responding- couldn't turn it off and it wouldn't search. I can't open anything file wise. I can look in the file- just not open. Settings, Windows icon, nothing will open. I have done two hard resets. I was able to reach and run defender by backdooring through the search at the bottom. I clicked on it and found defender and ran it- it found nothing. I pushed CTRL-ALt-DEL to see if something was running on task manager- it wouldn't open. Saw at the bottom rt a power button. Hit it, and now BSOD.

This has to be a bug. The computer is new. Just got it in December. Mainly used for Internet browsing, photos and couponing. Please help.

One other thing,the carat at the bottom rt, for hidden icons when I hit it says defender- PC status protected and Outlook is closing.

A:Internet and Apps only work in Safe Mode

Welcome to TSG:
If everything works in safe mode with networking but not normal mode,my guess would be an application running in normal not running in safe mode.
So,I would take a look at the list of apps running in both modes and investigate the ones not running in safe mode.
This will probably be a bit labor intensive,but given your description,it seems to be the best avenue to pursue at the moment.
Listing running tasks in safe and normal mode.

Open a command prompt in normal mode and type the following command.

tasklist >c:\nortasks.txt
Do it again in safe mode with networking and use this command.

tasklist >c:\saftasks.txt

This will give you two text files in the root of C: that list the tasks running in each mode. Compare the lists and see what unique processes are running in normal mode.

I recently just installed Windows 7 64bit Ultimate for the sake of upgrading RAM. I read about it before deciding should I go with 32 or 64bit and I was convinced that there would be no compatibility problems with 32bit applications, however, it didn't turn out to be this way.

Some 32 bit applications work as I expected, however, some give me the "The version of this file is not compatible with the version of windows you're running. Check your computer system information to see whether you need an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program and then contact the software publisher."

This is extremely frustrating and while some of these programs are old (the games are new), they are definitely not 16 bit. It makes no sense. The same programs work for other people on 64bit windows.

I appreciate any help.

Hey, folks-in-the-know.

What's the best & most economical way to host / manage your own domain these days? Before I renew mine, I'm curious about what others are doing. I currently use Blogger (my site has five years of stuff on there), but it seems Google wants to force me into an Apps for Work account / deal (do I really need that now?), and I'm not totally happy with what Blogger allows. I'm comfortable with Wordpress, but unsure of dealing with them with your own domain. I hear / read you don't get much for free. I like a little flexibility, but don't need anything too flashy. Is there still an option to just renew my domain and use Blogger as my platform? Searching for help on Google's spaces hasn't solved my questions yet.

Thoughts?

I just got a new iPod.

I downloaded apps yesterday, then synced to iTunes today. The apps I downloaded yesterday no longer work...

Also, from in iTunes on my laptop, I can see my music library on my iPod. I try to, but am unable to, delete songs.

Suggestions?

Thanks
 

A:new iPod - old apps won't work, cant delete music

Did you have an old iPod synced with iTunes on that computer?
You downloaded apps where? In iTunes? Or on the iPod?
Was the sync today the first sync with the new iPod on that computer?
Did the sync complete or give you errors?
What does "no longer work" mean? You get an error? They're missing? They won't sync?
You're trying to delete songs how? If in iTunes, you delete them from the library and then sync. You can't delete music directly from the iPod in iTunes. If you don't want to delete the music from your iTunes library, then you need to change your sync options to not sync all music and then manually select which songs, artists, albums, or playlists you do want to sync.

Just wondering before I bother to install 7, if the apps I have will work with it? I pretty much just use Windows when I want to run my greeting card app, so would upgrading to 7 even be beneficial for me considering I don't use Windows on a daily basis?
 

A:Is Win7 compatable with apps designed to work only with XP?

Its hard to say for sure on any particular app unless someone has already installed and used it with success. Here is what I said for Vista when this question came up, this should work for W7 also:
Here is some good advice when installing programs in Vista, This is good advice even if the program was designed for Vista.

Here is how to install software or drivers on Vista that are for XP,2000,NT4,98,95

1. Download your program to a folder of choice, Right click on the setup.exe file for the software/driver you are trying to install and select properties, if there is an "Unblock" button on the General Tab, click it, then go to the compatibility Tab

2. Tick the "run this file in compatibility mode" box and then select XP, or whatever OS the software was designed for, in the drop down box, Tick "run as Administrator" if it is available, hit OK. If it was designed for Vista then skip compatibility and only use run as administrator.

3. Now double click this setup.exe file to execute the install process, hopefully all will go well and install the drivers/Software you need.

4. If the exe installs software for the device, or you have installed software only, you need to navigate to the program folder where it installed, then do the compatibility thing (1 & 2) again for the program executable(s). If the program was designed for Vista skip compatibility mode, just tick "run as administrator"

I do not guarantee all drivers or software to work in Vista, but a large percentage do..

Good luck.

I downloaded them (something like 15MB each) and then went home.
When I tried opening them, both apps say I need internet to download the filters and content. So what was all that 15MB for?
And how much data am I going to use up to download the filters? Am I going to keep downloading them every time?
I don't need backwardness like this from a simple app that has no need for internet. I've downloaded apps like fantasia, picsketch, pencil painter and others where no internet was ever needed for them to work

So Today,
when I used one of my Metro App(Asphalt 8), The game showed the Gameloft logo but right after that it crashed.
Then I used another app which was Weather.. but it worked fine.. Again I tested Facebook app and it also crashed...
So then I downloaded one app (Flappy Birds Free) and it also crashed.. So from my idea I think that the downloaded apps are getting crashed.. I tried several fixes like using another user, turning off Windows Defender and Firewall, Clean booting, Updating Video drivers, scanning for viruses, using Metro apps troubleshooter, sfc /scannow, and all sorts of things.. There is only one more option left and that is to refresh Windows. But I don't have 8 CD. It got broken.. and I can't afford to buy a new one.. What should I do now?
