Any time I format a computer or install windows 8 or 8.1 on any computer, I usually come across this problem of Metro Apps Crashing on start or when clicked. I had to endure it for a long time till I came across this fix using the registry editor (Regedit).
I know it will work for you also, just follow the steps below.
- Open Run Command (Windows Key + R)
- Type Regedit
- Right click on HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT
- Click on Permissions…
- Click Add…
- Type ALL APPLICATION PACKAGES
- Click OK
Chip in: I ticked Allow for Full Control and Read Permissions. (Use at your risk).
Did it work for you? why not drop a comment in the comment box.
