Local Mandatory Profile breaks Metro Apps

I'm not sure whether this is the right section of the forum; tell me if i'm wrong. Also I apologize for my English, I'm Italian.
I want to setup one PC with a "self-resetting" user profile so that every time the user logs out everything he's done is deleted. In Windows XP I used Windows Steady State to achieve something similar.
I tried with software like Reboot Restore RX (freeware alternative to Deep Freeze), but they're not what i need (they reset all changes to the Hard Drive, which means that antiviruses and Windows itself cannot save upgrades).
I followed an howto in order to setup a Mandatory Profile on Win 8.1, because that seemed exactly what I need. My steps:
1. Create a standard user TEST. Log in that user and log out
2. Go to "Advanced System Properties" -> "User Profiles" and copy "default profile" to
C:\Users\MandatoryTEST.V2 allowing "\Everyone" to access it (with "Copy to" button)
3. Open "lusrmgr.msc" and assign C:\Users\MandatoryTEST
as Profile Path for user TEST
4. Log in TEST and start customizing things. Up to this point, everything works. Settings and files are preserved between logins, as expected
5. Rename the file NTUSER.DAT to
NTUSER.MAN in C:\Users\MandatoryTEST.V2 directory. This should "freeze" the profile
Those steps works well until i log into TEST
the second time after "mandatorizing" the profile. Default Metro apps like Weather and News suddenly disappear, and i can't access either Store nor Settings (they crash at launch). Am I doing something wrong? Or maybe there's a better way
to accomplish what I want?
Thanks in advance for your replies.

Hi,
In my opinion, whether temp file could use Store APP depends on Default Profile. However, default profile doesn't contains Store APP, such as, weather, finace, Bing Map, etc. If you want to use these Store App, you need to customize the default profile firstly,
make sure these app componments cotained in Default Profile.
To customize Default Profile, you can refer to the contents of the link below for more details:

  • Adding a domain user to the admin role within the local user management breaks all metro apps for all users!!

    Hi,
    I have posted this in another large thread under the "Windows 8 General" group but have not had any appropriate feedback from MS.
    After hours of testing and working with other users I have managed to isolate a simple situation that breaks all metro ui applications within Windows 8 for all users on the machine. Here are my exact steps and notes.
    Before continuing if you are running Avast then your solution may be to turn of the behaviour shield functionality as this also breaks metro apps. This is NOT the problem we are having!
    I have performed 3 cleans installs after isolating the problem and am able to reproduce the issue every time using the same steps on two different machines. 
    First thing to say is that for us it has nothing to do with simply joining the domain, domain/group policies nor does it appear to have anything to do with the software we installed, the problem here is much more simple but the result is pretty terrible.
    Here are my exact steps of what I did to reproduce our problem:
    Complete format of HDD in preperation for a clean install
    Clean install performed
    Set up the machine initially with a local account
    Test metro apps - all working fine
    Open control panel from the desktop, click on System, change the system to join the domain, click reboot
    Log into the system using my domain account
    Test metro apps - all working fine
    Here's were the problem starts. I need my domain account to have admin rights on the local machine so I can install programs without the IT men having to come over and enter their password every 5 mins.
    I go to control panel via the desktop and click on User Accounts. From with here I then click on "Manage User Accounts". This requires the IT guys to enter their details to give me access to such functionality. This is fine
    In the dialog box that opens I can only see the local user that was initially created during setup. The "Group" for this local account shows as "Administrators" - Image included below (important to note that metro apps are working at this point)
    I click add and then add my domain account - also giving it administrator access
    Sign off or reboot to ensure the new security is applied
    Sign back in to the domain account
    Test metro - ALL BROKEN
    Sign out
    Sign in as local account
    Test Metro - NOW ALL BROKEN FOR THIS USER ALSO
    So as soon as I add my domain account to the local user accounts and set it as admin it breaks all metro apps for all users. This is on a totally clean install with nothing at all installed other than the OS.
    Annoyingly if I go back and change the domain account to a standard user or if I totally remove the domain account from the local account management system the problem does not go away for either user. basically it is now permanently broken. The only fix I
    could fathom was a full re install and not giving the domain user admin access to the local  machine.
    Screen one - this is the local user accounts window AFTER joining the domain and logging in with my domain account (All metro apps working at this point)
    Screen 2: User accounts AFTER joining the domain and AFTER adding domain account to local user management (METRO BROKEN)
    I have isolated my machine from all group policies so nothing like that is affecting me. Users I have spoken to in different companies have policies that automatically add users to the local user management. This means that metro apps break as
    soon as they join the domain which leads them to wrongly think it is group policies causing the error. Once they isolate themselves from this they can reproduce following my steps.
    Thanks

    Hi Juke,
    Thank you for the response and apologies for the delay in getting back to you. My machine was running a long task so I couldn't try your suggested solution.
    I had already tried running the registry merge suggested at the top of the thread to no avail. I had not tried deleting the OLE key totally so I did that and the problem still exists. I will post all the errors I see in event viewer below. For
    your info, since posting my initial comment I have sent out my steps to 7 different people and we can all reproduce the problem. This comes to 10 different machines (3 of them mine then the other guys) in 3 different businesses / domains. We see the same errors
    in event viewer.
    Under "Windows Logs" --> "Application" : I get two separate error events the first reads "Activation of app winstore_cw5n1h2txyewy!Windows.Store failed with error: The app didn't start. See the Microsoft-Windows-TWinUI/Operational log for additional
    information." The second arrives in the log about 15 seconds after the first and reads "App winstore_cw5n1h2txyewy!Windows.Store did not launch within its allotted time."
    Under "Windows Logs" --> "System" : I get one error that reads "The server Windows.Store did not register with DCOM within the required timeout."
    Under "Applications And Services Logs" --> "Microsoft" -->  "Windows" --> "Apps" --> "Microsoft-Windows-TWinUI/Operational" : I get one error that reads "Activation of the app winstore_cw5n1h2txyewy!Windows.Store for the
    Windows.Launch contract failed with error: The app didn't start."
    If you require any further information just let me know and I will provide as much as I can.
    Thanks

  • App-V 5.0 SP2 with Mandatory Profiles

    Hi,
    We are having some issues with App-V 5.0 SP2 with HFX2 and HFX4 on our Windows 7 x64 Clients
    We use mandatory profiles and delete the local profile on logoff,
    HFX2 Issue:
    The AppData\Local\Microsoft\AppV\Client\VFS\<GUID> is only created once, subsequent logins don't have the folder structure created for the package VFS and all folders have read/write access for the user, when they should follow the base OS folder permissions
    We have found that a registry entry is created in HKLM\Software\Microsoft\AppV\MAV\Configuration\Packages\<GUID>\UserConfigEx\<USER-GUID>
    if we manually delete this registry key then appv will re-create the VFS folders in local app data
    AppV seems to be setting key's saying its created those folders and expects them to be there on the next login, is there a way to tell AppV that we are using mandatory profiles and to re-create the folders?
    HFX4 Issue:
    Hotfix 4 is a bigger problem in that a registry entry for <USER-GUID> is created in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\AppV\Client\Virtualzation\LocalVFSSecuredUser
    The first time appv is used for that user, it works, all subsequent times appv packages fail to load unless that registry string is manually deleted.
    Is there any way to fix App-V 5 to work with mandatory profiles which are deleted on logoff?
    Thanks!

    Hi Nicke,
    The registry key's are located in HKLM, which causes permission problems as our uses are all standard users
    the HFX2 issue sort of works, the
    UserConfigEx key is created with the logged on user having read/write permissions, so as long as that user successfully runs a logoff script then the key is deleted, if the desktop crashes without running the logoff script and a new user logs in, then they
    don't have the rights to delete the sub keys and all future app-v localappdata VFS permissions are broken on that client,
    The HFX4 issue registry keys are all write protected from standard users,
    I'm not 100% sure these are the only area's which are causing problems (they are just the ones I've found!) and that just deleting the registry entries completely fixes the problem.  I didn't go down the path of deleting HKLM keys as a user as it seemed
    a bit of a brute force hack to me which I was trying to avoid :)
    If I give users rights to delete HKLM\Software\Microsoft\AppV\MAV\Configuration\Packages subkeys
    then I think they could break published applications if the <GUID> folders are somehow deleted?
    I was actually pretty surprised to find out that App-V 5.0 stores permanent information about user's in the HKLM hive, I would have thought all of this should live in the HKCU hive!
    I've not been able to find any documentation on how App-V uses HKLM keys to keep track of processes its already performed on a user and doesn't want to do again,
    Thanks!

  • Adding security principles for metro app local data

    I accidently replaced all security principles on my user folder. Now my metro apps are not opening as I replaced security principles of their local data folder located at %UserProfile%\AppData\Local\Packages. How can I reset these security principles.
    Note:
    Adding "ALL APPLICATION PACKAGES" to security principles is working. But I want to replace it with individual metro app id for security reasons.
    What are needed:
    1-> individual App's uid 
    2-> adding to folder using powershell or cmd as GUI may not work.
    See image for clarity.
    Thank You

    Hi,
    Generally speaking, system restore would be an efficient method to resolve this problem, please have a try.

  • Sysprep and Windows 8.1 -- missing Metro apps after reboot?

    So, I'm trying to figure out an issue with Sysprep and a clean-install Windows 8.1 64 Enterprise system:
    When I sysprep the computer from my admin account with my unattend.xml file, when it reboots, I'm only getting 7 Metro apps at the start screen and
    14 Metro Apps at the "all apps" screen -- things like Weather, Maps, Calendar, Mail, etc are missing -- and actually look like they aren't installed
    as searching for something like "People" -- gives no results.
    From what I've been able to gather, the behavior of the start screen should controlled by an appsFolderLayout.bin file, but when I first set up the initial
    account (not "administrator", but the initial local admin account), that file does not exist anywhere.
    I've tried creating the file manually by running:
    Export-StartLayout -As Bin -Path C:\Temp\appsFolderLayout.bin
    and either putting it in \Users\<myadminaccount>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows
    or \Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows
    and sysprepping again (after restoring a snapshot to the pre-sysprep/post-clean install state), but this isn’t making any difference.
    When I run sysprep /generalize — the .bin file is deleted and replaced by some other default one — that I’m not sure where it is generated from.
    Does anybody have any suggestions here?    Windows 8.0 just worked with my unattend.xml file without having to mess with appsFolderLayout.bin, so I’m not sure what I’m missing.
    Thanks!

    If you are still having trouble, this is an outline of the full process I use that seems to be consistently producing good results:
    - Install Windows 8.1 Enterprise with autounattend.xml, in particular, blank administrator password, add user account test, auto-logon as Administrator, run "net user test /delete" immediately after logon to get back to just having the administrator account.
    There should be no reason why all that has to be done in autounattend.xml, but it is the way I do it. There are a few other mandatory settings if you want a fully-automated setup.
    - At this point in time the Administrator account only shows a few tiles on the start screen, all actions are performed using the Administrator account.
    - Run Schtasks.exe /change /disable /tn "\Microsoft\Windows\AppxDeploymentClient\Pre-staged app cleanup" before the task has had a chance to run.
    - Install all applications, updates and settings as you want.
    - Run Sysprep, in particular blank administrator password, add user account test, auto-logon as Administrator, run "net user test /delete" immediately after logon to get back to just having the administrator account. Also importantly we set CopyProfile to
    false under Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup specialize pass. I don't know because I haven't tried it, but I imagine that if you run this and copy the Administrator profile to the default user profile then the default user profile may be missing some apps. We
    do all customization of the default user profile explicitly by loading the registry hive and editing it directly.
    After the image is deployed the Admistrator account has all the standard tiles present, but two of them report errors (I think it is Music and Videos). Any other profiles have all tiles present and all apps work.
    The full sysprep XML is included below in case it is useful to anybody. The company-specific settings and passwords have been blanked out, but otherwise it is the full one we use and fairly generic apart from the Australian settings. Note that this one is
    for a 64-bit image.

  • Metro Apps All Crash On Startup - I have read the other threads on this

    UPDATE: I AM UPDATING THIS FIRST POST AS PEOPLE KEEP INCORRECTLY MARKING OUR ISSUE AS ANSWERED WHEN THEY HAVE NOT READ THE THREAD PROPERLY. AS SUCH I WILL START BY SAYING IF YOU ARE COMING HERE AND USING AVAST THEN YOUR SOLUTION WILL BE TO TURN OF THE BEHAVIOR SHIELD
    FUNCTION. MORE INFO IS CONTAINED ELSEWHERE ONLINE ON THIS MATTER. THIS THREAD IS ABOUT DOMAIN USE OF METRO ON CLEAN INSTALLS WITH NO 3RD PARTY SOFTWARE. SORRY FOR THE CAPITALS BUT 5 TIMES HAVE PEOPLE MARKED AVAST AS THE ANSWER TO OUR PROBLEM WHEN IT IS NOT
    EVEN INSTALLED AS DESCRIBED IN THE THREAD. I HAVE POSTED AN EXACT STEP BY STEP TO REPRODUCE MY PROBLEM LOWER DOWN
    I know this question has been asked several times but there seems to be no-one that has a fix for it and it's becoming very frustrating.
    I have installed windows 8 on my work computer as part of a test group to evaluate how the OS runs in our corporate space. The answer currently is not very well. The desktop side runs lovely but the whole metro experience is currently broken. This is the
    same across all the people in our test group, not just my machine.
    Scenario:
    All users running windows 8 within our domain are unable to launch any metro (sorry - new style) application with the exception of PC settings.
    I will describe how I set my machine up and the errors I receive.
    The install is Windows 8 Pro that was a totally clean install. Installation went fine and very fast which was great. When required during setup I created a local Microsoft account - we wanted to see the experience for the majority of users who
    do not have a live id. This all worked fine and everything worked as expected - including the metro apps.
    Now that everything was up and working we joined the machine to the domain, this went fine and I was asked what local security level I would like the account to have - I selected administrator as I need to install all my software / dev tools etc.
    After reboot I log into my domain account and start to install all my applications. I didn't retest metro apps at this point as it never crossed my mind that I would need to.
    All normal desktop apps / programs installed I try to show a colleague the news metro app. The splash screen flashes up and bang straight back to the start screen. I proceeded to try every single other metro app and all have the same result, including
    the store. Strangely they are all displaying notifications and updating the tiles.
    So now I start to search the issue online looking at my event logs for clues to track it down. The following is what i find in the event viewer, I will use the store as an example:
    Under "Windows Logs" --> "Application" : I get two separate error events the first reads "Activation of app winstore_cw5n1h2txyewy!Windows.Store failed with error: The app didn't start. See the Microsoft-Windows-TWinUI/Operational log for additional
    information." The second arrives in the log about 15 seconds after the first and reads "App winstore_cw5n1h2txyewy!Windows.Store did not launch within its allotted time."
    Under "Windows Logs" --> "System" : I get one error that reads "The server Windows.Store did not register with DCOM within the required timeout."
    Under "Applications And Services Logs" --> "Microsoft" -->  "Windows" --> "Apps" --> "Microsoft-Windows-TWinUI/Operational" : I get one error that reads "Activation of the app winstore_cw5n1h2txyewy!Windows.Store for
    the Windows.Launch contract failed with error: The app didn't start."
    I have tried the following to resolve this with no success:
    Updated the registry as per a moderator suggestion on technet
    Linked my domain account to my live id account
    Tried changing permissions on C drive to allow all application packages full control
    Install all latest updates
    Tried to run from the local none domain account - same issue now occurs there
    I am not willing to do a repair or re install after spending the best part of a day installing my programs and arranging my start menu too my desired layout. Also each user in our test group has the same issue with totally different software installed. The
    only common item between the 5 systems is .net 3.5 has been installed in order to run a piece of custom software (a simple exe).
    I need to try to find another spare machine to test if simply joining the domain is the root cause. If so this will surely be a big issue when it is actually release later this month as we do nothing special here in terms of our domain config. If it is something
    to do with the domain Microsoft should be much more specific about what can and cant be done on the group policies if you want metro to run. There is no way we could roll this out to our users if as soon as they join our domain their entire start
    screen stops working.
    HELP!!!

    Kevinio04, 
    We have been experiencing the same error in our environment; however today I have found a solution for this.  I have included my theory too, as to why this was happening.  Let me know if this solution works for you:
    If you have recently installed Windows 8 Enterprise on a machine, put the machine on a domain and then used Active Directory credentials to log in, then you may have
    experienced all Metro Apps to crash.
    Theory for Metro apps crashing: Once the machine was put on the domain and an Active Directory user would log into the Windows 8 machine group policy kicked in (depending on what OU that machine was in).  Group policy writes to the Windows registry;
    therefore if you put that same machine in a different OU after previously being in a different OU, there are still traces of the previous group policy in the Windows registry.  In summary, a new OU needs to be created in group policy specifically for
    Windows 8 machines.  The machines that are going to have Windows 8 installed on them, must start with a clean Windows 8 install. You can find details in the outline below:
    GROUP POLICY CHANGES
    Create a new Windows 8 OU with no policies enforced
    Once that OU is created, create the following Policy:
    Location of Policy: Computer Configuration / Policies / Windows Settings / Security Settings / Local Policies/Security Options / Audit: Audit the access of global system objects
    This policy needs to be set to: Not Configured
    Audit: Audit the access of global system objects
    Default: Disabled
    Description of this Policy
    *This security setting determines whether to audit the access of global system objects. If this policy is enabled, it causes system objects, such as mutexes, events, semaphores and DOS devices, to be created with a default system access control list (SACL).
    Only named objects are given a SACL; SACLs are not given to objects without names. If the Audit object access audit policy is also enabled, access to these system objects is audited.*
      INSTALL WINDOWS 8 ENTERPRISE
    Administer a clean install of Windows 8 on a machine
    Create a local administrator account
    Log in with the location admin account to put the machine on the domain
    Do NOT log onto the machine with Active Directory credentials yet!
    Put the machine in the new Windows 8 OU
    Restart the machine
    Now, log onto the machine with Active Directory credentials
       TADA!

  • Can't open secured documents on windows 7 domain client with mandatory profiles.

    While opening certain PDF files we have the problem that the user is presented with a message that he does not have the rights permissions. This happens twice, after that the users gets an empty page with the message the Adobe version might not be up to date. We use Acrobat Pro 10, but this also happens while using Reader 11.0.8. On our windows 2008 terminal services machine this could be fixed by giving the user rights on c:\ to create and remove a file. :O. On windows 7 this doesn't work probably because of UAC. But we've tried every solution to that available on the internet, disabling uac, changing uac options, changing rights on userprofile folders, changing rights on c:\ but to no avail. When using process explorer we can see it wants to create a temp file p328hkl.tmp or something like that on C but it can't and immediattely after is shows the error on screen.
    Anyone who also has this problem or solved it? There are no problems with simple self made pdf files/scans but only with certain types of pdf files for which it tries to create a tmp file.
    Thanks,
    Peter

    Hi Brogers,
    Thanks for your reaction. We do have AppData redirection in place. We redirect AppData to a share on our data server which works perfectly fine for all other applications. The weird thing is that Reader/Acrobat try to write to C:\ which to my knowledge should not happen, is this maybe a fallback because it can’t write to a different location? Users have full control on their own roaming AppData but not on their local AppData that is made by windows itself while copying the mandatory default profile to C:\.
    I might use the wrong term while saying secured documents. I’m talking about a document created by Raet/Youforce a web application for personal administration. The documents can be opened by other viewers than Acrobat/Reader but then only contain the background and not the text. In Acrobat/Reader they do open normally when Acrobat/Reader can create the .tmp file. Otherwise it will not display the file at all. I would attach such a document to see but since it contains certain info I am not allowed to do so.
    I hope we can work out a solution for this.

  • Metro fails completely after system restore - can no longer access either Metro or Metro Apps

    Following a system restore, Metro no longer works - The windows button on the keyboard does nothing and clicking the start icon doesn't do anything either. Attempting to start Metro Apps results in failure - they cannot display on the screen and I see the
    outline flash up briefly, then the app crashes. All non-metro programs work fine and aside from Metro, there are no problems.
    How can I re-install Metro or solve the issue? This seems a pretty major failure in the preview - If Metro fails it causes major disruption - kind of like it used to be when explorer.exe failed. No menus, no access to system functions - updates etc. 
    Any suggestions? How can I re-install ( or fix ) Metro without having to scrap the entire OS and rebuild from scratch?
    I thought the store beta not working was a major problem, but it's nothing compared to this. 
    Rolling back the system restore, or choosing another restore point does not correct the problem - 
    Thanks
    David

    Hi,
    Are you using the built-in administrator account? Have you tried to create another user account then check whether the issue persists?
    You can follow the steps below to troubleshoot this issue:
    Run wsreset.exe to clear the Windows store cache.
    Re-register the Windows store apps by the following guide (also applies to Windows 10 Technical Preview):
    http://blogs.msdn.com/b/notime/archive/2013/10/18/fix-store-app-in-windows-8-1.aspx
    If you're using the built-in administrator, then please navigate to control panel\Administrative Tools\Local security policy\Local policies\Security Options\User Account Control: Admin Approval Mode for Built-in Administrator account, enable this option,
    then run gpupdate /force to update the policy, logout then login again to check the result.

  • Win 8.1 Metro apps re-installing after being removed from the reference image

    Scenario:
    MDT 2013 - Build reference image for Win 8.1 on hyper-v executing the following commands removing all metro apps.
    Powershell.exe -Command "&{Get-appxPackage -AllUsers | Remove-AppxPackage -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue}"Powershell.exe -Command "&{Get-AppXProvisionedPackage -online | Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage -online -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue}"
    Install windows updates and perform sysprep and capture wim task
    Import Wim into Sccm 2012 r2 and deploy with standard mdt task
    Problem:
    After deployment all Metro apps are reinstalled or reinstalling.
    Notes:  Setting Copyprofile True is ignored and have tried various methods and it is always ignored.
    If I use the wim from sources\install.wim and I either dism /remove-appx... or powershell in win PE get-appx -path | Remove-appx...
    If that wim is modified and used then it deploys without the Metro apps but it doesnt have any windows updates.  If I use that wim to build the reference image it will have no metro apps but after capture and deploy through sccm the metro apps start
    to re-install.

    Yes as I've removed it both via get-appxpackages | Remove-appxpackages and via the dism commands.
    I have found also that wasn't getting a good sysprep.  Problems with copy profile lead me to try doing a manual sysprep where I found I was getting failures in my sysprep. The problem was that I was disabling the windows store service in my reference
    image.  
    I was very hopeful that was going to be the resolution but it appears that is not the case.

  • Windows 8.1 update 1 - users with domain mandatory profiles cannot open windows 8.1 Store

    Hi,
    After the update 1 on windows 8.1.  All of our domain users get "you cannot access the windows store because you're signed in to this pc using a temporary or guest account......" while opening windows 8.1 store.  All my users use mandatory
    profiles.  Could some one guide me onto:
     -how and what changes should I make on my base image of 8.1?
    -how/where what changes should I make on the domain in Group policy to make my profiles work?
    -I also run sccm 2012 R2 if that makes the things easier I can use it for deploying store apps, but I prefer to make a base windows 8.1 image throw all required apps on it.  I would like to make sure that my domain user can open up windows store after
    that I can capture this image and deploy.
                                  Need help thanks
                                  Note: Before this update 1 of windows 8.1 things worked great.

    Thanks Kate Li,
    Domain profile is not corrupt.  I have checked the registry settings.  In my question I am mentioning that I am using mandatory profiles for domain users.  Need help.
    I am on update 2 now and the same error for domain users with mandatory profiles.
    Also error 1001 is generated every time the user tries to open the store(the user with mandatory profile)

  • Mandatory Profile via GPO

    Hi Dear,
    I have a requirement to configure couple of terminal servers in Windows server 2012.
    However we do not want any user to save anything onto their local profiles. Around 200 users will be using this terminal server for their use with multiple applications that will be installed in the server.
    Is it possible to configure user mandatory profiles via Group Policy. Really appreciate of someone can provide me the steps preferably in the easy mode. However to test it I have created a test server since I am not that good at registry values would not
    do any harm to the environment.
    I am using Server 2012 as a test terminal server and active directory is 2008.
    Thank You in Advance.

  • Sideloading metro apps for all users

    I am having problems with my sideloaded metro app…… Doesn’t seem to work anymore on any of my machines.
    For the first few months, I originally installed my Metro app by first installing the app’s signed certificate to the local machine root store (All OK), then running the following command logged on as the actual user I wanted the app run
    under.
    Add-AppxPackage
    -Path "MyMetroApp.appx"
    -ForceApplicationShutdown
    While this method sort of worked, it had two problems:
    I needed to manually renew the developer licence every 30 days running
    Show-WindowsDeveloperLicenseRegistration
    and I had to do this logged on as the user on the actual console, couldn’t to this using remote PowerShell.
    I want to install the app properly for all users without needing to keep renewing the developer license. I have now run the following to install the app for all users:
    #Allow Trusted Apps
    New-Item
    -Path "HKLM:\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Appx"
    New-ItemProperty
    -Path "HKLM:\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Appx"
    -Name AllowAllTrustedApps
    -PropertyType DWord
    -Value 1
    #Install the app for all users
    Add-ProvisionedAppxPackage
    -Online -PackagePath
    "MyMetroApp.appx"
    -SkipLicense
    This method – even though it seemed to complete successfully, a couple of issues:
    there’s no shortcut added to the start screen on one of my machines, so I can’t open the app
    I am getting a message popup upon opening my app “The app can’t open: There's a problem with {app name}. Contact your system administrator about repairing or reinstalling it. [Close].” on another machine
    Can someone please point me in right direction to get my app working again? I don’t think it’s anything major, I think I’m on the right track.

    The main steps are detailed here:

    It sounds like the app needs to be un-provisioned on your troublesome machine ?

  • Windows 8.1 MUI Deployment vs default metro app language

    Hi,
    I try to deploy a Windows 8.1 Enterprise image with 2 languages, but when the Windows is deployed, the language of the metro apps (Bing news, ....) are not in the correct language.
    I have start my GOLD IMAGE with a Windows 8.1 x64 Enterprise French.  After that, I have added the English Language Pack.  I have make a sysprep to the windows 8.1 with the two language (original language is french).  I have import the .WIM
    in SCCM to deploy it.
    When I deploy the WIM image to a new computer with the default language french (set in unattend.xml), the first time a user open a session on the computer, the metro apps are in english (Windows Store, Bings News....).  I'm unable to have the metro
    app deployed with the corresponding language.
    When I deploy by default in english, no problem!  I don't know what is wrong, normally, the initial OS is french and i'm unable to have metro app in french!
    Thank you,
    Steve

    Hi,
    Considering that it's related to local or language settings.
    By the way, I would like to know which part in your Windows store or Bing app display as English, the settings and UI or only the content in these apps.
    I recommend you change all local or language settings in the unattended file as French to see what's going on.

  • Metro apps not installing

    I just reinstalled windows to 8.0 pro. I went to the store and told it to download and install the updates for the apps. in downloads them but says, "this app wasn't installed." I've since re installed windows twice. Even tried the 8.1 update
    that worked but put an X in the lower right corner of all of the apps. Any help would be appreciated. TIA

    Hi,
    First, please install all available update in Windows update.
    Then, to fix this, run the following in a Command Window (CMD) to re-register the Store App in command:
    powershell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $Env:SystemRoot\WinStore\AppxManifest.XML
    Make sure that you have no proxy settings in Metro app.
    To clarify if the issue is related to user profile, please use another user account to see if the same issue persists.
    Since to update Store app is related to Windows update components, please try following fixit to reset Windows update components.
    How do I reset Windows Update components?
