A lot of metro apps had problem when my PC was running Windows 8.1 - some apps don't have sound while others, e.g., the built-in Movies&TV, just quit after clicked. Now the problems remain the same after upgraded to Windows 10.

The following is the event log of "Movies & TV" crashing. How to resolve the issue?

  • Create a FULL crash dump (msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb787181%28VS.85%29.aspx), compress the dmp and share it. I'll take a look at it and maybe I can see the cause. – magicandre1981 Jul 31 '15 at 4:24
  • I've created a full crash dump and zipped it. It still has the size of 68MB. How to share it? – Flou Jul 31 '15 at 4:48
  • I looked at it and I can only see that a module is missing. But I can't see any details because the PDBs miss some data. I've asked my Microsoft contact and I'll reply here when I get an answer. – magicandre1981 Jul 31 '15 at 15:25
  • my contact was also not able to see which module is not found. Run ProcessMonitor when you try to launch the app. Now stop ProcessMonitor, filter for Video.UI.exe and NOT FOUND entries in the Result column and look if you see what is not found.channel9.msdn.com/Shows/Defrag-Tools/… – magicandre1981 Aug 1 '15 at 5:33
  • I used Process Monitor captured and filtered all Result column containing "NOT FOUND" for ProcessName of Video.UI.exe. It found 443845 events. The detail of the these events are, for example, "Desired Access: Query Value", "Desired Access: Read",... etc. The operation are RegQueryValue, RegOpenKey, CreateFile, .... etc. – Flou Aug 2 '15 at 4:55

If you are using the N version of Windows 10 - try installing this

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/confirmation.aspx?id=48231

It resolved a similar problem for me.

The N version of windows doesn't have any media related technologies installed. For more info on this, check

  • I'm not using N. Can I still try the approach? – Flou Aug 6 '15 at 0:43
  • @Flou - If you don't have the N or K edition of Windows then you already have the Media Pack installed. The Media Pack of course has NOTHING to do with Windows Store applications. – Ramhound Aug 6 '15 at 1:34
  • Thanks very much. This finally resolve the issue on my PC since Windows 8. I don't know how my Windows become N version. – Flou Aug 6 '15 at 3:15
  • No Problem - I'm glad it helped :) – Thomas Aug 6 '15 at 7:48
  • ok, my guess with the N Edition was correct. Nice to hear that it was fixed by installing the Media Feature Pack. – magicandre1981 Aug 14 '15 at 15:40
