HI, I just upgraded to Windows 8 pro from Windows 7.
The upgrade went well, and all my previous Win 7 applications are working. However the new Win 8 apps (the ones launched from the start screen) are not working. Clicking on the tiles brings up the splash-screen for that app, and then it just closes. All of
them appear to do this, except for "Maps".
I did a search but couldn't find anything. There appears to have been a similar issue with the consumer preview, so I tried out those suggestions. Because my user profile was the one I imported from win7, that was an admin so that might have been the issue.
I created a local admin and switched my account to a normal one, and signed in with a Live ID, but that didn't work. UAC is turned on, so that can't be it. I'm running a HD (1920x1080) display, so that can't be it either. My windows experience index is at
6.2 (it's a laptop), so I don't think hardware/driver issues could be it.
