Workaround: Edge Crashing With Roaming Profiles Enabled

Jason[MS] started on

Hello Insiders!

As you may have noticed in today's blog post for the 14279 PC flight, we've fixed an issue from an earlier build where you may have experienced crashes with Edge and possibly Cortana for roaming user profiles on your PC.

This fix will prevent any additional occurrences of this bug, but may not fix an already broken roaming user profile.

For users with affected profiles and who are handy with PowerShell, you can run the following commands to bypass the issue:

reg delete "HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppContainer\Storage"


Get-appxpackage -packageType bundle |% {add-appxpackage -register -disabledevelopmentmode -ForceApplicationShutdown ($_.installlocation + "\appxmetadata\appxbundlemanifest.xml")}


$bundlefamilies = (get-appxpackage -packagetype Bundle).packagefamilyname


get-appxpackage -packagetype main |? {-not ($bundlefamilies -contains $_.packagefamilyname)} |% {add-appxpackage -register -disabledevelopmentmode -ForceApplicationShutdown ($_.installlocation + "\appxmanifest.xml")}

Note:  This fix may cause minor data or settings loss, such as your Edge customizations. 

We're looking at potential resolution steps for users who may not be familiar with PowerShell.  I'll provide updates should they become available.

Thank you as always,
