Music & TV – App Not Starting Potential Fix For Windows 10

Music & TV application on Windows ten quit working after a recent windows 10 update on November eight two thousand sixteen. Quite frankly I could care less if this application works or not as I do not use it. However, I thought I would try to fix this problem and found some potential solutions to fix Music & TV.

On my Windows ten computer Music & TV application tries to open, but closes after a few seconds. First item I tried, was to make sure that my system date and time were correct. Click on Windows start button, then select settings.

In settings choose "Time & language". Make sure that your time is correct. Also, make certain your day, month, year, and timezone are set correctly.

Now try to see if Music & TV will open properly. Second possible solution is to perform a file system check. Right click Windows start button and choose "Command Prompt (Admin)".

In a black command prompt window type in:

sfc /scannow

Hopefully, that will allow Music & TV to open properly, if not you can attempt to delete libraries from Windows file explorer. Left click a yellow file explorer icon in task bar. Look for Libraries on left hand side.

If you don't see them then click on "View" then "Navigation Pane". Choose "Show Libraries". Under Libraries you want to delete documents, music, pictures, videos by right clicking and selecting "Delete" for each one.

This step does not actually delete these items from your computer, just deletes these items from a libraries feature. Right click Libraries and select "Restore default libraries". Now try to open "Music & TV".

Another potential fix is to try clearing out your temp folder. You want to browse to C:\Windows\Temp folder. Select everything in this folder and delete those items.

None of these a fore mentioned steps worked for me. However, this next step did. Try to remove and reinstall Music & TV application using Windows power shell.

Click on a Cortana icon. Type in "Power Shell" in a search bar. Select first option "Windows Power Shell".

In a blue window type in or copy and paste following command, to remove Music & TV:

Get-AppxPackage *zunevideo* | Remove-AppxPackage

Once this command finishes and Music & TV disappears from both start menu and a tile, then type in following command to install Music & TV application:

Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers| Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}

Once again, wait for this command to finish and for Music & TV to show up in a Windows start menu. In order to add Music & TV as a tile again, I had to right click "Music & TV" from start menu and select "Pin to start". Music & TV application successfully opened up the first time I tried, after reinstalling.
