Windows 8 Metro Apps Open then immediately Closes.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
As the titles states, whenever i try to open a windows 8 app it opens then closes.


Ive already tried sfc /scannow and dont reallly want to refresh my windows 8 programs cuz I have alot of stuff installed. Any help?


Ive checked event viewer and this comes up "App microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps_8wekyb3d8bbwe!Microsoft.WindowsLive.Mail did not launch within its allotted time."

Keep in mind its just not the mail app its also almost every other app that was installed when i installed 8 pro.

How did you setup your SSD with your user profile?

I know this thread is a bit old but I was just getting this issue now and found a fix that worked for me. If you have FXAA enabled in the nVidia control panel, shut it off and then trying launching the app again and it should load just fine. That is what worked for me.
