Testing a new surface pro 3. After the device was added to the domain, the metro apps will not open when a domain user is signed on. The error message is "this app can't open. There's a problem with XXX. contact your administrator about repairing or reinstalling.

How do I allow some apps to run, mail for example?

Also ensure your account has an Microsoft Account associated with it,
