MUI apps not launching

    Question

  • When i click on an app in the new Windows 8 interface, it loads the splash screen of the app but then just shows a deep green screen.. the apps don't launch.. Does anyone else have this issue and have they figured out how to resolve it?

  • 1. apps need a resolution at least 1024x768 to run

    2. some apps crash if you're using a "live ID" account". Revert to a local one, or create a new one.

    3. Try reseting the machine or reinstalling windows.

  • Hi JustinBussel,

    I have the same Issue, with any application, also with new Metro application created with Visual Studio.

    Dear Sztupy...

    1- the problem related to the resolution is deeply explicated on the web, and that problem takes the app NOT to open (nor the splash screen).

    2- the account type has nothing in common with the problem, because ALL applications has the same problem!

    3- Reinstalling or resetting is the UNIVERSAL solution, like change the pc, or change job!

     

    I noticed also that building a new app with Wisual Studio throws me an Error:

    System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException
    Server execution failed (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80080005 (CO_E_SERVER_EXEC_FAILURE))

    I think it is related to our problem. I'm going to study that error.

    Tank you millenovanta.
