Repairing broken apps in Windows 10 Bug.
« on: December 10, 2015, 06:22:56 PM »
EDIT: in windows 10 Version 10.0.10586.318 the Powershell command works!!! Finally Microsoft fixed it! So that means the next version of windows repair will have it back on  :cheesy:

Currently in Windows 10 (1511) 10.0.10586 Powershell is having issues with this command it is a bug that is affecting and deleting apps Shane already removed the command from running when it checks which version of windows you are running. This bug is only known to be on windows 10 with the newly released update.

Here is the command That is causing this issue please be weary when running this command I recommend not running this until there is a patch for it.
Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml}
I'll be updating this when I know for sure Microsoft notices that there is a bug in the "Get-appXPackge" and patches Window's 10 so that this issue no longer exist's
here are the snapshot's of what it looks like.
(side note this command is a built in command to Windows)

Even with a fix the broken apps will stay broken. What are the chances MS will fix it to recover the apps without requiring a clean install? Would a reset be the proper way to fix it and what is the best procedure to make it easy to restore settings and devices?

okay so if you do it individually each app it looks like it will work so far. here is a command to fix just the start menu if the start menu is not working on windows 10.
Code: [Select]
Get-appxpackage -all shellexperience -packagetype bundle |% {add-appxpackage -register -disabledevelopmentmode ($_.installlocation + \appxmetadata\appxbundlemanifest.xml)}

I have been struggling with this issue for some time, most of my Microsoft apps have failed, plus some others. I have tried a variety of fixes, none of which have worked. I have been hoping Microsoft would soon issue a solution, I am very reluctant to attempt a refresh/reset/reinstall. So I am relieved to have found this forum and thread, as I feel if I keep returning here I will eventually see the answers I need.

I came across this --- I cant remember where. Simple, but doesn't Refresh remove many of your programs / apps? I don't want to do that.

 If someone has the same problem do the following:
 Open CMD as Admin
 Then Type in:"shutdown /r /o"
 Wait about 20sec
 It will now get you to the Advanced Recovery of Windows
 After That click on Troubleshooting and click on Refresh my PC.
 Wait for it to do its thing about 10min.
 And your apps should work now.

Unfortunately, I ran the command that made all the apps not work anymore before I saw this posting.  I went to run the "all in One" repair tool to fix it and saw the message display in that window.

Is there any way to bring the apps back?  I tried taking the "Get-App" command for shellexperience and changing it for other apps and it did not work.

Only way as of right now is to do a refresh in Windows. I am still really surprised that this bug is still there after all this time and there hasnt been a word from MS.

I agree with you entirely, about the absence of any reaction from Microsoft to this issue since November. I have been hoping for a fix this month ie. January. There seems to be no sign of it, in fact I have discovered another problem which may be related, the freezing of the link to Windows Gadgets in the Control Panel and my inability to install new Gadgets.

Hi, It seems that microsoft has the knack of making auto updates to upgrade all the system to windows 10, which has so much bugs, especially for older machines. As one says the window updates are still coming for windows 7. I think windows 7 for sometime is the best choice.
                           wherever i browse, the forums are full of questions on this OS, with no solutions given on most of the problem.
                            My question to Julian! Will the machines that do not have requirements also would be auto upgraded to windows 10 or that would not be alerted by its auto scan ability

So since I upgraded from an i5 to an i7-3770K windows 10 start and apps worked on first clean install, they then broke and even on clean re-installs they don't work from the first boot to the desktop, and nothing I have tried makes ANY difference. I am convinced it is the processor as that is the only thing that changed. Please help...can a faulty processor cause this? Windows 7 works like a charm so don't see any issues with my proc.

Shane posted on Jan. 17 that the only way, at present, is to do a refresh in Windows 10 to recover the lost apps.  When I go to the advanced Recovery for Windows, it only has a reset option, with and without removing files and apps.  Is that the same as a refresh?

Hi,

I have this very same problem on Windows 10 with latest build. Is is the recommended solution a system reset but save data or does creating a new windows profile help?

Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Regards
Kevin
