Hi,

Having an issue on Server 2016 RDS servers where the start menu; action center etc do not work. Fail with error
"ActivateApplicationForContractByAppIdAsUserWithHost of the app Microsoft.Windows.Cortana_cw5n1h2txyewy!CortanaUI for the Windows.Launch contract failed with Package could not be registered.."

Steps taken so far
re-register all windows apps - worked for a little while before failing again
Run through latest set of updates
sfc scan and repair
dsim repair
Test on cloned server excluded from group policies

I see this is a fairly common issue, but i havent seen a solution as yet.

any help would be greatly appreciated at this point
