Metro Style App Failure RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All --

    I'm having problems launching all Metro style apps (Calendaring, Maps, People, Messaging, etc).  When launched I just get a splash screen and then the application goes away.  It's very little data out there about these errors but I see some users have this issue in relation to anti-virus scanners.  The only AV I have installed is the built in Windows Defender application.  I'm running Windows 8 pro on a custom built PC.

    In the application event viewer these 4 errors are logged.

    Event 1: ID 1000

    Faulting application name: wwahost.exe, version: 6.2.9200.16420, time stamp: 0x505a9152
    Faulting module name: KERNELBASE.dll, version: 6.2.9200.16451, time stamp: 0x50988aa6
    Exception code: 0x00000004

    Event 2: ID 1001

    IDFault bucket -883335237, type 5
    Event Name: MoAppCrash
    Response: Not available

    Event 3: ID 5973

    Activation of app microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps_8wekyb3d8bbwe!Microsoft.WindowsLive.Calendar failed with error: The remote procedure call failed. See the Microsoft-Windows-TWinUI/Operational log for additional information.

    Event 4: ID 2486

    App microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps_8wekyb3d8bbwe!Microsoft.WindowsLive.Calendar did not launch within its allotted time.

    Any help on this would be much appreciated.

  • Hi George,

    The MSDN Windows Store apps Forums are for discussion by developers writing their own apps about writing those apps.

    For help with using Windows 8 please post in the Windows 8 forum on http://answers.microsoft.com . The Microsoft-Windows-TWinUI/Operational log should have additional information which may help track this down.

  • I had exactly the same problem:

    Still - If that does not work, try the following (it worked for me though):

    In an Elevated Command Prompt -> CMD.EXE (Run As Administrator):

    dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    Reboot the computer and then, in an Elevated Command Prompt:

    sfc.exe /scannow

    Best regards
