Windows 8 "This app can't open" ...help please?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, this only occured this morning, been trying to fix it all day with no luck.

I have attached a screenshot of the error for you to look at, this happens with all apps, even the store, so there's no way I can find of reinstalling the apps to fix them...

No idea what could have caused this, nothing has been installed or changed between today and yesterday, everything was working and then today all apps have this same error message...

I don't really want to refresh the PC or reinstall Windows as I have a LOT of games (150GB+) and programs (around 20GB) that I really don't want to re-download.

Any ideas how to fix this?

Maybe reinstall the "store" app?

I'm not sure, any help would be really appreciated.

Do you have a separate that you could move your Apps/Games to? I personal keep everything like that on a different HDD so if I do need to rebuild it doesn't take me long and the work is minimal.

Also maybe you could just capture an image then refresh. If something goes awry you could load the captured image.

I have all my games (except team fortress 2) on my hard drive, all programs are on the SSD, but it says that it removes the programs when it refreshes so I'm guessing that would include games and save data (possiby?) thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif
Is there any way to go about this without having to remove hard drives/move programs around?
Ideally I'd like to just reinstall the store app, is that possible? I only really use the mail app, but it's nice to know I can get more if wanted...
Or is there a good mail application/program out there that is as basic and easy to use as the mail app that I could get?

I don't see why you would not be able to re install what you need to. Just check out Programs in the Control Panel. You may also just try right clicking the box in the tile screen and see what options become available. Also have you checked to see if there are an Windows updates you are missing?

Because I don't want to re-download 20ish GB of programs and set them all up again.
And yes, tried Win Update with none available

Fixed the problem without doing a refresh or anything else, I made a new admin account on the command prompt (because no metro app could open and user accounts in control panel are considered one)
Logged into that account, opened up the metro app store, updated all of my apps, including the store, logged out, logged back into my main account and it was all working.
So that's is how you fix the error message of apps not able to open in Win8 for anyone who may stumble upon this from Google or anything else smile.gif
