Why are all the apps on my nokia lumia 630 including some native apps not opening at all??

Question: Why are all the apps on my nokia lumia 630 including some native apps not opening at all??

I did a hard reset to check whether or not the above stated problem would be fixed but in vain . The problem at hand here is that apps such as WhatsApp , all lumia apps , newly downloaded apps off of the store, even some settings like copy contacts and messages to SD card, backup, motion data etc. Even some native apps like news feed , pic art , weather, one drive etc. Apps that work are MS exchange , calendar , contacts , alarm etc. The symptom is the app keeps returning to the start screen ( home) . The specs are:
Nokia lumia 630 dual sim
Software: windows phone 8.1 update
Os version: 8.10.14234.375
Firmware revision number: 02040.00021.15053.36003
Hardware revision number: 4.0.4.0

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi I am not sure if this belongs on this thread and I have seen possible solutions but I don't know if they are what I need for my issue.
I have a Windows 8.1 Desktop (HP) and not an upgrade from Windows 8 (I don't think so at least).
Every so often I can not open the tiles.
Instead it tries to open and maybe the top bar appears then it will return to the home page where the tiles and apps are. T
he Mail tile (Hotmail) is usually the one I open and that will either attempt to open but won't work or just not open.
I can get onto the desktop from the desktop tile and I have noticed the mail tile icon is on the task bar of the desktop. When I click on the icon it won't open.
I then try other tiles, including the live ones which are updating the news etc but they will not open. These icons also appear on the desktop tool bar.
I have only found that restarting the PC allows me to get the tiles/apps open.
Luckily each time I have restarted the tiles work as expected.

I have seen problems others have with tiles not opening and the issue seems to be something to do with going from Windows 8 to 8.1 and I bought the PC with 8.1 installed.
The issue occurred again on Sunday 9th November, the day before it was fine.
Before I tried to open the tile, there was a java update required and I ran that - not sure if thats connected to it.
With the icons appearing on the desktop although still not opening I am not sure whether the tiles are opening but not completely or it is something mor... Read more

Last night my Lumia 925 randomly locked up (which it seems to do quite often) so I did a soft reset and then noticed a bunch of problems.
First I noticed a bunch of my app tiles were blank or only displaying the app name. That happens from time to time when apps are updated or decide to lose track of the day. So I tried to go in and refresh them. But a lot of them wouldn't open. Others will open but crash immediately, and others still will open and display their info but won't update their live tiles. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling some of them but it has had no effect.
In addition to apps not behaving, various settings windows won't open. I thought maybe my phone updated and the update was buggy, but I can't check because Extras+Info crashes before opening.
Also, in my app list the first 4 apps are things I did not install, and don't look normal. @{Miscrosoft.BingTranslate, @{Microsoft.MSBatterySaver, @{Microsoft.MSCalendar, and @{Microsoft.MSPodcast. Pretty sure none of those are supposed to be displaying that way.
I didn't attempt to install anything. I've been running 8.1. I don't know if there was an update pushed out last night that I didn't notice installing.
But my phone isn't working and I am frustrated.
Anyone know what's wrong or have suggestions?

In past few days, I witness that many apps have stopped working for Windows Phone. This is the worst thing. Messenger app is no longer working for Windows Phone. Amazon shut down their app on windows phone long ago. Many other apps are showing a message that very soon they will shut down their app on windows phone. What the hell. No one will buy your older windows phone even. It is the complete loss of the windows phone user. Microsoft should say something on this. Even they are not releasing windows 10 build for the windows phone 8.1 users.

To set up My Family so a child can download apps and games On your computer, go to My Family on the Windows Phone website. Sign in using the parent's Microsoft account. If the parent doesn't have a Windows Phone, that's fine?you can still set up My Family. If the parent doesn't have a Microsoft account, you'll have a chance to create one. On the My Family setup page, click Get started. (If you've added a child to My Family before or have set up a family using another Microsoft service, you may not see Get started and can just click Add a kid.) To add a child to My Family, click Go. On the sign-in page, enter the Microsoft account the child uses to sign in to their phone. Now the child can download apps from the Windows Phone Store.NotesCreating an online account for a child under 13 with the country/region set to US requires adult verification using a US-based credit card. For more information, see My Family FAQ.If your child has a Windows Phone 8, you'll also need to accept the Windows Phone Store Terms of Use on the child's behalf for them to download apps and games from the Store. On the My Family page, next to the child's name, click Accept Terms of Use.

Try a reboot, then a soft reset before attempting other fixes.
This is abnormal behavior, in any case.

Had you turned your phone off or something while updating? Also, go to the store and check for app updates. See if there are any.
Also, try reinstalling one of the apps. Let me know if that worked.
If all of this doesn't work, then you might have to prepare yourself to reset the phone using recovery tool. :-\

Try a soft reset.. check if it solves it > if not; move to hard reset (button combo) and check >if not; download the Windows Device Recovery Tool and reset the phone using thatSoft ResetThe soft reset is the same thing as pulling your battery (on devices where that is possible). This method will not remove anything at all from your phone and is completely safe to attempt in any problem situation.You perform the soft reset by having your phone turned on. Then press and hold the volume down + power buttons until your phone vibrates and restarts. Note that you should not touch the device screen during the process (not even when the 'slide down to power off' prompt appears).
Hard ResetThe hard reset will bring your phone back to factory settings, the same state as when the device was first turned on. All apps, messages, media, personal settings, etc will be removed from the phone. If backup is turned on under Settings, you can restore your apps and settings after performing a hard reset (as long as you initialize the phone with the same Microsoft Account). Note that resetting your device will not remove any OS or firmware updates. You will remain on the same version of Windows Phone after the reset.If you can TURN ON your device you can reset your phone under Settings: Settings > about > reset your phoneIf you can't open your device because of a forgotten PIN (or similar), you can use the button method: Press and hold the power-, volume-down- and camera buttons until ...

Another option you have is install the apps manually, via .xap files
If anything else fails maybe a hard reset is needed but that would erase everything in your phone.

Question: Native apps

Is it just me, or do all of the native apps on WP suck? I am using the browser and Outlook for everything. VLC still sucks, Twitter sucks, BS Player does not exist, and so on and so forth.
I can't prove it, but I think Video is caching duplicate copies of my SD card videos to the phones memory. I can't see why it needs to be 1.18 GB. But Video is the only app that works consistently, and I can say the same for Music.
When I say native, I'm not referring to the Microsoft, Nokia, and MSN apps. I'm referring to official first party apps from developers, not HTML 5 workarounds.

Answer:Native apps

It's you.
Email is great to me, VLC is not even finished, it says its a "beta" argh... This is why they shouldn't have made it public.
Sure, its not the best app situation, but don't issue a blanket statement since its kinda not-bright.

I installed many apps locker they all work fine but I can still access apps from the all apps list.

Answer:My apps locker work fine but apps can be accessed from the all apps list, how can I prevent this?

Yes. There is no such thing as a real app locker app in Windows Phones. This is because third party apps are not allowed to interact or interfere with other third party apps due to Windows Phone Sandboxing technology.
If the developer was careful with his app, he or she would have indicated the limitations of the "app locker" he created in the app description. Otherwise, if there is no such disclaimer about the limitations of the app in the app description, the user is encouraged to report the app to Microsoft as a fraudulent or misleading app.

I did an OS update last night (Developer Preview for 8.1, OS Version 8.10.14147.180 and a Nokia Lumia 822) and now my apps will not open. I get the following error message:
"Problem with app
There's a problem with [insert app name]. First, try to buy the app. If that doesn't work, you'll need to uninstall the app and then install it again."
Anyone else having any problems? Any advice? It is happening on almost all apps. I didn't try them all yet, but haven't found one that works...
I've reinstalled an app twice and it still doesn't work....

Answer:Non-native Apps won't open.

Check if your time and date is correct, manually adjust them if you have to.
If that doesn't work reboot your phone
If that doesn't work try hard resetting by going to 'about' in the settings and going to reset my phone.
If that doesn't work do the same as above but don't restore your backup
If that doesn't work roll back to 8.0
If that doesn't work then I'm afraid your Smartphone... is now a Dumbphone :o

Hello guys, I have a problems with my Windows 10.
The native application icons do not appear on the toolbar (like calculator, e-mail, Edge, settings, etc):
I'm using the build 14279, but it has happened since the first (I am Insider)
I tried reinstalling the applications but not solved, any solution?

Thanks!!

Answer:Native apps toolbar dont appear

Hi, found this, but just shows reinstalling doesn't solve it (MVP solution).
Taskbar icons of universal apps not - Microsoft Community

Besides which, the powershell command breaks apps since build 10586 in November - I've not seen anything to show any updates have corrected that.

So....
My immediate reaction, given you've had this problem a long time is to suggest

a. Create a full disk image (defensive backup) as the next step is major (but should be safe).
(Everyone should use disk imaging and update the image anyway - so much safer and really fast with SSD and USB3)
b. Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade - Windows 10 Forums

The in-place repair
- leaves all your programs and most settings in place
- reverts your build to 10580 ('cos that's the version of the iso)
- turns off system restore
- creates Windows.old
- means subsequent Win updates need redoing

So what can we look forward to seeing on Surface Pro/RT with MS grabbing the mobile section of Nokia??
Will any of the apps from Nokia get a re-brand and jump to Surface?
I would be interested in the movie maker from Nokia on RT......any chance?

Answer:Microsoft and Nokia deal....did MS licence any of the Nokia apps?

This is a really interesting question. I'm not sure whether MS bought out Nokia's apps to be honest. I know the main crux of the deal is hardware related but I'm sure its been discussed how Nokia's exclusivity on their apps will most likely be dissolved, which can't be a bad things for the platform, as Nokia's apps really do stand out among the crowd. No matter if it's Nokia that's developing them or if it's MS developing them, as long as they do keep getting updated I think we're in a good position.

Went back to WP8 just to get Cyan and when the phone rebooted it installed a limited number of apps. As far as I can tell these are the standard ones installed on any new Windows phone. Checking my backups it told me I had zero backups! So this means that everything I had before has gone. Start screen settings, apps etc. A lot of those apps were paid for and as far as I can see there is no way to get them back!
Never had a problem like this on Android...didn't matter how many times I wiped a phone...my apps were always available in the store.
Microsoft....this sucks big time! Anybody else see this...have a solution?

Answer:All backups gone including APPS I paid for!

Anything you have downloaded/purchased will be in your Purchase History, ready to download again at the press of a button.
If you downgraded then the whole phone gets wiped. The restore apps list thing doesn't work in 8.0 so they wouldn't show anyway. But they are still there in purchase history/my apps in the store.

Before I installed Windows 10, I was using Outlook for my calendars and contacts, sync automatically with iCloud. I like the functionality of Outlook for my everyday tasks.
After I installed Windows 10, my calendar and contacts only appear in the native app, and I am "unable to open (iCloud) folders" in Outlook. When I check the settings in iCloud control panel, it is set to sync with Outlook.
How can I get my calendars and contacts from iCloud to sync into Outlook (or at least sync Outlook with native apps)?

Answer:Windows 10: Can I use Outlook for Calendars and Contacts vs. the native apps?

Try uninstalling and re-installing iCloud app. That fixed other problems for me and your problem for others.

Exactly the same problem. Good to know I'm not on my own ( see my post: Icons missing for Calc/Edge/Mail etc after last update - Windows 10 Forums - I must have missed your one )

I have a strange issue in Windows 10 Pro (Dutch). With my account (in Administrator group) I cannot start apps like 'Control panel', 'Paint', etc from the startmenu. When I click just nothing happens: no window, no message, nothing. Only via desktop As Administrator works. Also apps like Bitdefender Security doesn't start automatically. I tried to create a new account, but same issues. But, when I startup with the build-in Admin account (I enabled it temporarely) and switch to my own account (with Admin account open) everything works well!
I expect that the issue is related to access controls or something.
My system: Intel Core i7-6700K; Asus Maximus VIII Ranger motherboard, Corsair Vengeance LPX Black 16GB DDR4-2666 CL16 kit, Geforce 980Ti, Samsung 950 Pro 256GB (NVMe m.2 SSD). Windows is installed from scratch, no update, on the 950 Pro SSD.

About three days ago, all new style apps stopped working. I click on the tile, get a deep blue screen, and nothing else. On the left side of the screen, I can see the app as if it is working (just the name of the app, not content), so I can close the window and get back to desktop. The same applies to the STORE app. The only tiles that work, are the links to desktop applications, which open correctly on the desktop. The fault also affects all windows system apps. For example if I search on the start screen for "windows update", I can access "Windows update" as it just opens a window on the desktop, but if I click on "Windows update settings" nothing happens. The same is true with all windows system apps that open in the new start screen system. I've uninstalled two Microsoft updates that were installed over the past three days, no change. I uninstalled AVAST, no change, so I reinstalled it! I tried restoring the system, but found that I had only one restore, and that was corrupted. Very strange. Without access to many windows system apps, the computer is really limited. The desktop seems to be working OK. I have been searching for two days for ideas on line. In a few places I've seen similar problems, but no solutions. I can't refresh the PC, as firstly it is a system app that runs from the start screen, and secondly because I upgraded from win 8 to 8.1 online, this can't be done anyway, as I don't have a disc.

I haven't installed creators update yet but I have seen a few disturbing accounts of people saying the native app tiles and start menu entries are screwed up after the update for other user accounts on their machines. The apps such as store, mail, calendar etc look ok for the main user in which the update was run/installed but logging into other user accounts once the update has finished the problem exists. As a family that relies heavily on separate user accounts this is worrying. I want to establish if this is widespread or whether these are just sporadic and isolated reports. What are other people seeing on their other user accounts? Someone posted a powershell fix helped them but the whole process is unpredictable and akin to playing Russian roulette with your pc as it can easily destroy the native apps too. If this is a true side effect of installing the creators update then it's an awful oversight and something QA testing should easily of spotted especially given the relentless insider releases that MS throws out. Are multiple user accounts really so rare that MS wouldn't of noticed the issue?

Answer:State of native apps on multiple user accounts after creators update

I would hope the described situation doesn't mean each user has to log in and do the update individually to get the same effect as the main or first user.

Hello Windows Phone users, I'm due for an upgrade on September 30, and would like to know a few things. Firstly, before HTC announced the HTC One M8 for Windows, I had made up my mind that I would go with the Lumia Icon (I'm on Verizon), but with the introduction of this phone from HTC, I'm second-guessing myself. Obviously it's just been released so none of you can tell me about any hands on experience with it though. I bought a cheap GoPhone from Walmart to play around with the Windows Phone environment, and fell in love immediately. One of the features that I enjoyed playing with was the Nokia Cinemagraph camera app. Very neat. Can you install this Nokia app on an HTC phone? I looked in the Windows app store and found it listed, so I'm guessing you can, but I'd like to hear from more than just myself.
I haven't compared the two phone's features side-by-side yet, but I will tonight. I think in the end I'm probably going to end up going with the Lumia, but if anybody wants to talk me out of it, I'm listening. Is there any reason I should go with the Lumia Icon over the new HTC One M8?
Thank you, and any other helpful information that I didn't ask about or might not be aware of would be much appreciated, too.

Have the lumia 520, great phone, wit ha great os, especially for what i paid.
Noticed the 8x for 150 dollars, spec wise for the price this goes toe to toe with the moto g and wipes the floor wit the 620. My only problem is updates and nokia apps. What's the situation for htc devices?

Answer:Why are my updates on my my Nokia apps?

No Nokia apps obviously, but on the plus side you do get some HTC stuff.
Updates are more cloudy, official ones are still in flux, they just issued an update enabling more updates on the Preview for Developers.
but its a nice piece of hardware though.

Hello everyone,
I am new to this forum and hope you can help me with this issue, thank you very much for any help.
I just received a Nokia Lumia 925 and would like to use my backup settings from my Lumia 635, thought it was an easy process but I can't get the restore option to work properly in the new phone (obviously trying to use the backup made by the other phone).
I have the backup properly done as it shows in the 635 model (Manage backups-Settings backup/App backup --Using 548,37kb/18GB from OneDrive), but then when I go to the 925 model (resetting the phone, using my Microsoft account, etc), it doesn't show any backup made from the 635 model, it shows nothing. Then, if I make a new backup of this 925, it does work but obviously it is not the information from the 635, it is what in the screen in the 925 model after resetting the phone to factory.
Perhaps the two systems are not compatible and the information can not be transferred to one phone to the other??
-- Nokia Lumia 635: Windows Phone 8.1. O.S. Version: 8.10.12397.895.
Firmware revision number: 01061.00066.14235.36004
-- Nokia Lumia 925: Windows Phone 8.1. O.S. Version: 8.10.12393.890.
Firmware revision number: 3051.50009.1424.0012
Both of them are up to date.
Probably I am doing something wrong, so thank you for the advices.
Cheers,
Jordiet

For clarity...
You have signed into the 925 with the previous MS account that was used on the 635?

So I purchased a nokia 6335 from At&T, but whenever I try to download apps it tells me my SD card is not found and nothing downloads. I have 4gbs of free space, and when I go into storage sense I find that all my settings are for phone, not for SD. Do I need to buy an SD card? Or can I download apps to my phone memory?

You should be able to download to your phone just fine if all apps are set to download to the phones memory. Try a soft reset by holding the volume down and power buttons simultaneously for ten seconds. If that doesn't work you may have to perform a hard reset as a last resort.

Hi all
I have 2 apps (SMH and The Age) on my old phone (Nokia 925) that I wish to use on my new Nokia 1520 however neither are available in the store anymore.
Is there any way to be able to transfer both apps from my 925 to my 1520?
Thanks!

Answer:Transferring old apps from my Nokia 925 to 1520.

If the app isn't published in windows phone , sigh you can not move/download that app on your phablet (but I am not 100% sure about this one )
