Metro apps do not start? Not resolution error. - The program '[5048] WWAHost.exe' has exited with code 5 (0x5). RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've previously run metro apps, but at some point(even after a refresh!) they have stopped working.


    building an app in VS gives me "The program '[5048] WWAHost.exe' has exited with code 5 (0x5)."

    I've tried a few solutions described in the forums that have worked for other people.

    Refreshed OS, upgraded to Silverlight 5, updated gpu drivers. 


    Still getting the GSoD (Green Screen of Death :p) after the metro app logo hangs for a bit.

  • Still can't resolve this. Been searching through a bunch of threads on the forums. Any suggestions?

  • that error is access denied. Are you by any chance running explorer elevated? This can happen if you kill explorer.exe and relaunch it from an elevated command prompt.

  • Did you know what was happening? Procmon log might have told for what resource you got "Access Denied" and get more clues.
