What app is that? Try to run that in the Compatibility Mode. Go the properties of the Application Executable - Go to Compatibility tab and set that to run in Legacy Mode. For Eg, Set that to Windows 7 and see if that runs.

What's the App to do Job? In which code is it written? Has that ever worked? If yes than on which Operating System?

Awaiting for your response.

Do you logon with a Microsoft account or a local admin account?

Most apps will only run if you logon with a Microsoft  Account.

I would agree "some" apps. I have two Windows 10 computers here: one with a Microsoft Account and one with a local account. Most apps work under both methods.
