    Hello everyone.

    Updating certain apps in Windows store (and downloading new ones) always results in Error 0x80073CF6.

    I tried every solution I could find, nothing worked. Specifically, Microsoft Photos and Groove Music are the ones causing problems, not to mention a lot of new apps I can not install on my laptop.

    Anyone managed to solve this?

    Yup; same here. I just left the Insider Build, though, so maybe that caused it. Yeesh, a bundle of problems this Win10 update makes.

    This is error in Event Viewer:

    Activation of app microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps_8wekyb3d8bbwe!microsoft.windowslive.mail failed with error: The system cannot find the file specified. See the Microsoft-Windows-TWinUI/Operational log for additional information.

    Why can't it find the files? How do I reinstall the files?

    Let's hope Anniversary update deals with all those problems.

    I had the same thing happen as the store, camera and mail wouldn't work. I created a new account and everything worked. I original accounts profiled had become corrupt. Updates didn't fix it because the profile was corrupt.
