Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Can you tell us which App did not start?

If System File Checker does not resolve the problem, then try a Windows 10 Repair. Nothing need be lost.


Click on Upgrade to Windows 10 (even if Windows 10 is running), click on the Download button, select Open (Run) but NOT Save. It is possible you may need to go to the download location and run the program - it depends on exactly what MCL does (it changes from time to time). Allow the program to run. Allow drivers to update. Then select Keep Everything.

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.
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
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.
