Metro Interface with Domain Signon

    Question

  • I installed the preview as a VM using Virtual Box.  I have used the Registry change to allow me to swtich back and forth between the metro interface and the traditional interface.  I then added the preview session to my domain.  This seems to turn off the Metro interface completely.  I stay in the traditional interface and can't run any Metro programs.  Is this as designed or just a bug in the preview?

    No, I've got a number of both physical and virtual machines connected to
    various domains and on all of them the Metro UI works just fine.

  • Your problem leads me to believe that a refresh of your PC is the best next course of action.
    The refresh may resolve the other issues, but it is most likely to resolve the   ... error message.


    Here is what will happen you when you refresh your PC:

    Your files and personalization settings won't change.

    Your PC settings will be restored to their defaults.

    Apps from Windows Store will be kept. All other apps will be removed.


    Follow the steps below to restore your PC:

    Enter the Start screen

    Click Control Panel

    Click General on the left column

    Under the Refresh your PC without affecting your files, click Get started

     

    Then follow the instructions that will be displayed on the screen.

    Once the refresh has finished, test to see if you still get the error. Try without the registry change first to see if you can access the Metro apps.
