Unable to open lenovo metro apps

2014-03-11, 17:23 PM


I recently installed a FRU SSD drive into my Thinpad t540P to use as a cache and program storage drive. I changed the default install location of programs and metro apps to the SSD drive and all worked well for awhile. Very recently, however, none of the lenovo metro apps (companion, settings, etc.) will open. They briefly open, and then close automatically. I have tried deleting the windows app folder on the ssd and changing the windows app install directory back to the default setting. I also tried manually deleting the lenovo apps from the windows app folder, but nothing has worked. When I try to reinstall the app from windows store, I get the error code 0x80073cf0.


Hopefully someone can help me out!
