Windows 8 Modern UI apps do not work
Posted on 2013-05-16
Hello experts. I have a Microsoft Surface Pro tablet that I really love. Several of us are test diving these to roll out to company users. However, I ran across an issue that is annoying to the point that I can't recommend this OS/Table to anyone.
In many cases, apps that are installed from the App Store and meant for the Modern UI side (Metro) simply do not work at all. The app downloads and installs with no errors but when you attempt to open it, you get a blue screen (not a BSOD) and no functionality.
Does anyone know why this happens and is there a remedy? Thanks in advance.
