Metro app problems?

    Question

  • I've been having some problems with a few of my Metro apps, and was wondering whether Microsoft or someone else could create a "reinstallation package." all it would take is finding out where the Metro apps are stored on the disk, and then zipping them all up :/ I would really appreciate it. If you could, here's the basic steps you'd need to take:

    1. Find out where the Metro apps are stored
    2. zip up all the Metro apps
    3. upload the zip file
    4. post reply with link to zip file
    5. make me happy :)

  • Hello!

    Very few of my Metro apps are working, here's a list of some of the ones that ARENT working:

    Socialite

    Twitter

    News

    Weather.

    When I launch, say, Weather, it get's stuck on the loading part. When I launch Socialite, it displays the black patterned background, but nothing else. I really have no idea what's going on...is there any way I could reinstall those?

  • MAScodes, your best bet is to reinstall to get those apps back. The Windows Developer Preview is not set up for app installation the way you describe. I find VMs to be very handy for these kinds of things.

  • You could also try the new Windows 8 reset feature.

  • Mark Tim's reply as answer. VM won't be the right approach...
