    No i haven't uninstalled the apps. It started this morning.
    The last changes were from windows updates. Audio for the docking station and a update for win defender.

    Just want to make sure you've covered the basics, like rebooting first?

    Well if it was me... I'd try doing as suggested above, uninstall and then re-install and see if that fixes it. Hopefully it does!

    Also, if you have disabled UAC or the Firewall Modern UI Apps won't run.

    Another issue with Video Apps they are very sensitive to the Display Drivers, so if you've are using a Reference Driver that could impact as well.

    It was all working until this morning. Haven't made any changes. Wonder about the docking drivers.
