I am unable to start any of the Windows 8 "Metro" applications anymore on any of the users on my system.
This includes the Store, and the PC Settings application. When I try to run these apps, it quits to desktop every time and two error logs are written:
Activation of app windows.immersivecontrolpanel_cw5n1h2txyewy!microsoft.windows.immersivecontrolpanel failed with error: This app does not support the contract specified or is not installed. See the Microsoft-Windows-TWinUI/Operational log for additional information.
And in Microsoft-Windows-TWinUI/Operational:
The app windows.immersivecontrolpanel_cw5n1h2txyewy!microsoft.windows.immersivecontrolpanel is not registered for the Windows.Launch contract or is not installed.
I am trying to run these apps as a administrator (not the local administrator, that account is disabled) with UAC enabled. So far, I've tried:
sfc /scannow- no issues detected
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth- completed without error
- Creating a new user and trying to run apps there - same result
- Updating Graphics Drivers
- Running Windows Update
- Ran the "Windows Store Apps" troubleshooter, it always says there might be an issue with my graphics drivers, even though I did a fresh insall of the latest GeForce drivers
Chrome in "Windows 8 Mode" works, however.
