Windows Metro Apps Open Store instead?

    General discussion

  • On my Laptop Opening the default metro apps (Excluding Internet Explorer) causes the app to fail and the Windows Store to open!


    I can no longer access Metro Apps. Although they still update their tiles in the start pane fine.

  • Are you domain joined?

  • What does it mean to be domain joined? I'm experiencing the same issue with only one user account. Others I have created run Metro apps correctly.

  • The following should fix the behavior. Go to Control Panel, General and select "Refresh your PC without affecting your files".

    We've seen a few issues where the licenses for a particular user don't get installed correctly -- this should fix that.


    Thanks for the feedback on the Windows Developer Preview.
