    Have you completely disabled User Account Control? If so, my understanding
    is that will cause all Metro apps to fail and is by design.

  • Are you talking about Build-in administrator? Paul is correct I had issues with Metro apps not working  properly when UAC is disabled.

  • No,  not disabled UAC in Super Admin account. But  completely disabled UAC in regular user account and Metro apps works fine.

    Again, there's no such thing as a Super Admin account.
