    This has happened to me too. The only time it ever happened before was when I installed the Twitter Beta that leaked and wasn't supposed to be available to the public. It used to grey out for a while then start working again. I never found out why.

    Did someone found a solution? The same is happening to mine. Tried opening from app list and doing soft reset but it didn't fix it. I don't want to uninstall and lose my messages.

    Just like that, are you using it more than a year?

    I can confirm that Whatsapp is disabled, grayed out for my device. Even in the store, I cannot see an option to view or share the app, as you normally see for the apps that are installed. Everything else is working fine. Please see the attached screenshots. I hope there is a solution to it. It does not seem to be widespread problem. Additionally, I have been using Whatsapp for less than a year, so the renewal is not due yet.

    I couldn't wait anymore and uninstalled it. After that the options to install and share reappear and you can then install it solving the problem.

    So any progress on that? Having the same issue... Unfortunately I don't like the idea of reinstalling, I just got a new phone number and I don't know if WhatsApp wants to send me a text message after reinstalling, currently I can't receive text Messages under the number I'm registered with WhatsApp with...

    Yep, the only other time it happened before was with Twitter Beta but it used to give a warning. This app is completely unresponsive.. and store page does not show the view and share button either.

    Only solution that worked for me is reinstall. Since it backs up daily. Didn't lose much data.

    Its not a renewals issue. Plus I have a lifetime free account.

    The same happened to me a few minutes ago. Before i was using whatsapp without problem but suddenly it grayed out.

    So, the only solution for the moment is reinstalling? And the messages that are backed up will reappear?

    Ok,I reinstalled, and found that there is no back up for my msg, and a year of chat record is just gone. That really pissed me off and I've decided to leave windows phone.

    Mine is also didn't take backup daily, it takes daily backup's before the last week update, but after that update, automatic backup is not working and there is also no option in setting menu about it, I have to manually go to setting to take the backup. I don't know what's wrong with my version...

    a few hours ago the tile became active again by itself, so no reinstall was needed.

    (btw, the support did not answer my mail.)

    I had this issue with true caller and msn news. I reinstalled both and they were back to normal. No idea why this happened!

    Yes I am also having the same issues. Live tile disabled, cannot open Whatsapp App through the list, also WhatsApp on Market Store does not have have View button visible. Frustrating. Don't want to uninstall as I will loose all my data. Unfortunately have to wait for a possible solution. Whatapp support is useless as no reply to any of the emails yet.

    What a shame for Windows App store which is already not good enough compared to iPhone and Android apps and now things like these just let every windows phone user down... at least will try my best not to buy a Windows phone again in future.

    hi guys,

    i just had the same problem - also i could not start the app from the app list.

    after i manually startet a windows phone back up the problem was resolved. unfortunately i dont know, if it was just a coincidence.

    so let me know, if this hint works out for others, too.

    yours, robert
