Metro style applications will not open on a computer that was upgraded from Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Trek.


    The issue with the Metro Apps not running is different from the one caused by the resolution. The same pc (a Toshiba M750) has the Metro applications working fine on a new install but fails to load any after an upgrade from Win 7.
