(SOLVED) Win10 apps dead after running Windows Repair
« on: November 19, 2015, 05:06:27 AM »
After a recent clean install of Windows some errors appeared already which were very annoying (SearchUI.exe crashing every minute), I found online this could be fixed with "tweaking.com windows repair" and it currently is fixed thx to that. But after running the Windows Repair most of the win10 apps seems to have died including the app store.
Does anyone know a way to fix all these apps?



I've tried to remove all these default apps in the PowerShell but that resulted in errors as did the command to install all default apps back on Win10.
Code: [Select]
Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers| Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}

While MS apps not working after the Threshold 2 update has been reported, other apps have been downloadable.

Open a Command Prompt (Admin) and try these cmds first -

net stop wuauserv

ren C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old

net start wuauserv

exit

Then reboot and retry downloading the apps.

If they fail then open the admin cmd prompt again and enter -

dism /online /cleanup-image /startcomponentcleanup

dism /online /cleanuo-image /restorehealth

This one tends to hang at 20% but does complete and follow that with a sfc /scannow to see all is well, but irrepairable files have also been reported following the Threshold 2 update which can generally be ignored.

The /restorehealth may also report that it cannot find the source file, but if the /componentcleanup cmd is successful, then that may do it.

If your ISO was the latest version, then it will have included the Threshold 2 update.
Tom.

Both of your suggestions didn't fix the problem. The iso I used didn't contain Threshold 2 but I did install it right after installing Windows, I used the MediaCreationTool to get the Win10 installer too bad they didn't update the downloads there.

This is what feedback I get when I try install the default apps in the PowerShell.

Re: Win10 apps dead after running Windows Repair
« Reply #3 on: November 19, 2015, 02:13:26 PM »
Have you tried that command line that it suggests, but if you can restore prior to Threshold 2 and check if you have the same problems, that could nail it to TH2, but unless you have enabled System Protection (as it's disabled by default in Win 10), you won't have any restore points.

Alternately, if you believe the WR program was responsible, then use the restore facility in that to revert to before you ran the program.

EDIT - Just been reading a Windows Secrets Newsletter and apparently you can revert to an earlier build prior to TH2 via Settings/Update & Security/Recovery, but I don't know the procedure from there as I don't have Win 10.

This is the feedback of the command line it suggests. It didn't seem to have made a backup or I have deleted it already so I guess I'll go look around for a Threshold 2 ISO.

I was thinking WR is responsible with the 28.01 and 29, is there any other Repairs that could affect the default apps then I can remember to unmark them next time I need the tool.

The ISO download from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 includes Threshold 2 but I was wanting you to try things prior to TH2.

Without any other means of reverting from TH2, you could reinstall with your original ISO - but I'll email Shane for him to have a look at your thread as he is better placed to answer your questions on WR and what it could affect.

Alright thanks, I'm open to more suggestions before I reinstall. I don't have much to lose with a reinstall since I just did a clean install of win10 2 days ago.

My repair app store does the same powershell command to reinstall the apps.

Looking at the errors it looks like files are missing ont he system for some reason, you also said searchui was crashing and was one of the reasons you used my program.

By any chance have you done a chkdsk on the drive yet to look for bad sectors? Its a long scan but I would like to see the results.

chkdsk c: /r

The latest ISo you download from microsoft is the new 1511 build so you can grab it there, then you should be able to do a
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

I think the command to use the iso image file is better, just need to find it.

The dism command should be ran first before doing a sfc scan.

I test all the repairs on a fresh install of each version of windows. The apps all worked fine for me on windows build 1511. So just like you seen the program does the same commands you tried, but because files where missing that it needed the apps didnt reinstall themselves like they should have.

Looking at more of the errors some are failing because it wants files from .net framework v1 which is part of the OS but it says it cant find them.

First thing is to get me the results of that chkdsk so i can make sure we dont have bad sectors that might be causing the problem. Then from there we will do the dism and then the sfc. :wink:

Is it the one in this article for when /restorehealth reports that it cannot find the source file ?

As TH2 is installed, the ISO may need to have TH2.

I bumped into the same problem after going through a full tweaking repair pass. When trying to reinstall microsoft store and all its minions, I got errors on registering certain apps, and it has something to do with localization. If I refer to your above log, no app with a language_nl (in my case language_fr) could register. All I have now when trying to start an app is "You will need an app to open ms windows store" error. Fyi those (on top of the app store) are beleaguered to the OTHER submenu (start menu) under their filesystem  name.

The sfc /scannow always returns perfect health without any errors. I'm running the suggested command with a newly downloaded ISO right now. Do you think I could have bad sectors on my Samsung 840 Pro SSD? The SSD still shows perfect health.

I fixed the image seems like Microsoft is doing some OneDrive maintenance or something.

The command has run successfully without any problems found and didn't change the problem.

I'll check again in the morning it's 1am here now so I'll have to call it a day.
Thanks again for the help and fast responses.

The bad part is sfc doesnt cover everything in fact it misses a lot. On my own windows 7 system sfc reported fine every time yet I had updates failing repeatedly and when I would check the log it was because of missing or wrong version files in the winsxs folder yet sfc didnt see any of those.

I ended up having the same version o f Windows installed in vmware with all updates, I then copied and overwrote the entire winsxs folder from that one and then exported out the components registry key and the packages registry keys and imported them over. After that all updates showed installed and no errors, I didnt even have to install the updates themselves and every update after has installed perfectly now.

The app store repair in the program is simple in as it deletes the registry key under the current user account for the installed apps (Only for the current user) as this is one of the steps by MS on it, then it loops through the apps in the install folder and installs them, the powershell command that is ran. All the registry keys are remade by Windows and the apps reinstall.

The repair doesnt delete ANY files, only that one registry location and thats it. I did just do an update on windows 10 today after the 1511 update and MS has already released a cumulative update for it already, looks like it had some bugs that it had to fix as well.

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3118754

It says that it replaces this update
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3105211

I will do another test run with the latest updates in 10 and see if the apps break for me. I always run the repairs in safe mode with networking, not sure if you have as well.

OK. did the test. fresh windows 10. updated to 1511. one pass of tweaking breaks the apps. Not all, but some. those won't launch and are in "other" under their FS name.

I am doing a test run now as well.

This is build 1511 with the new update from yesterday and all other updates.

First run is doing all the repairs and the first repair app store in the list. 2nd run will be all repairs and the repair app store total reset.

I also have a registry backup from before the repairs so if they do break I will restore the registry and see if it fixes it. If it does then I will know it is a registry problem. Will report back in a bit. Time for dinner :-)

Ok I tested it and yes it does break. You will see I get the same results.

Then I ran the full reset repair on it and most of the apps reinstalled fine. But a few failed including the store.

So checking the event log and errors the powershell command that calls windows to reinstall the apps is not correct. It is pointing to folders to older versions that are not there any more.

For each app that failed I checked and you will see in the screen shot the folders where missing. Looks like this is a bug in the newest version of windows build or a bug in the new app version for the ones that failed.

The paths to use to reinstall the apps are kept in the registry, but they are only pointing to old versions. The updated versions are not in there.

So I am going to see if I can manually add those correct paths to the proper versions and then see if the powershell command will install them correctly. Either that or I just run the powershell command to the folders themselves instead of having it look in the registry for the paths.

Yeap thats what it is.

Here is a screen shot of the registry location that the powershell command looks at to know what apps to reinstall. Notice it only has the one windows store version but from the earlier screen shot that folder isnt there and only the newer version is. So it never even runs the install on the newer versions since they are not in the registry.

So now I am manually going to add those missing ones to the registry location and rerun the powershell command and see if it installs them.

Holy Freaking Windows Bug Batman!!

So guess what is causing all of this. The actual powershell command

"Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers| Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}"

So I looked at the C:\Program Files\WindowsApps" folder from the copy of windows 10 I had in vmware, it had 97 folders including all the ones that where missing. So I copied them all back over. Then simply ran the powershell command "Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers| Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}"

Then I watched, soon the errors started showing up and I watched as the folders where deleted, it removed 12 folders all together and basically each one it had an error on it then deleted the folder. This is a huge bug in windows or the powershell command. I dont know if it is something in powershell or something in the xml files they added in the new app versions, but that powershell command is now very bad to use, but it is the only one I am aware off that would reinstall all the default apps in 8 and 10.

Not sure what to do about this, this isnt a bug in my program, this is a bug in the newest build of Windows.

What about the localization factor, any chance it has to do something with that ? Cortana would not work unless you assign the same language everywhere, I run an english w10 with some french keyboard region, so does that matter ?

Ok here are some screen shots to show it in action and that it isnt my program.

The first screen shot before.png shows all the 97 folders put back.

The during.png shows the command running from powershell and not my program and you can see the number of items has already started to drop.

The last picture, after.png shows the items went down to 78 and shows one of the needed windows stores folders for installing it is gone.

This is the only known way of reinstalling apps that I am aware of, so this is a big deal that MS has broken this.

The store is dead after running the powershell command, I havent tried putting the folders back and running the command directly on the folder. But the fact that it is deleteing the files means there is no way to reinstall the apps back, it isnt suppose to be doing that. So besides getting the files from another install I dont have an answer as this bug was never in the older windows 10 and this is something that is only a few days old. I wonder if MS is even aware of it yet.

It doesnt look like it has anything to do with the system as I am doing this in vmware with everything English.

Ok I am going to make an update and release it first thing in the morning. I am going to have the program check for the current build of Windows 10 and have it auto skip the repair app store repairs until this bug is fixed on microsofts side.

From the looks of it the app install thinks a newer version of those apps are install when there isnt and so deletes them. So it might be a bug in the apps themselves, not sure yet, but till then I cant have people thinking my program did it lol

Look for 3.6.5 to be release din the morning.

Alright thanks a lot you figured out everything already :O. In the meanwhile I've done a reinstall of Win10 Threshold 2 and tried to minimize getting errors once again but there will always be errors it seems :)
Great it'll get a update to prevent this in the future so nobody will get our problem when they're trying to fix Win10 ^^

I did actually run WR after the clean install of Threshold 2 because there was apps with errors already but WR fixed it while keeping the stuff that caused our trouble unmarked, neither did I need to reset them anyway.

Looks like Windows 10 still needs tons of bug fixes, just like this bug I reported which is still not fixed in Threshold 2 luckily it has a temp workaround

But I wonder if Microsoft is even aware of bugs we report here...

I dont think my little corner of the net has anyones interest over at Microsoft lol

But all I know is, that after each update they do all I have to do is run that powershell command and see if it continues to kill the apps. Once it doesn't I will re-enable it in the program.

Thankfully by having windows 10 in vmware I can just copy the image to run the test on and I wont have to reinstall anything :-)

I know 10 isnt going anywhere and the OS with the app store is here to stay, but I wont be switching from windows 7 for at least the first year so they have time to get these bugs worked out. MS has to many programmers, to many fingers in the pot and released an OS that wanst finished. So I will give it time before I switch to it.

Yeah I know they wont see this ^^ but I mean the answers.microsoft.com which they don't seem to notice too. Maybe the only thing they check is the Feedback tool.

For me Windows 10 atm sure is faster and has nice new features I actually wanted and use but is surprisingly instable compared to the Windows 8 release.

Btw thx for the fast help and great software I've bought the full version, I'm sure it'll be of great help.
