Windows 8 App Trouble RRS feed

  • Question

  • Okay so I downloaded the Windows 8 Dev Preview and The First day of use everything worked well, then all the apps started to not work. (When I opened the Apps it would just go to a green screen).  So I searched the Internet for solutions and then I changed my account to a local account and made sure I had the proper resolution.  But now when I click the apps on the Metro Menu  I get a error message saying the Following :


    Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file.  You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.   

    Could Someone Please Help Me Please?

    And Thank YOu
