Windows 8 won't run application

By annem21 ·
Several times I've gotten the message "this app can't run on your PC" when trying to use downloaded programs like ad-blockers and music downloads on my Windows 8.1 tablet. Is there something in settings or a firewall that I can (selectively) disable to allow these apps to run? I suspect it is just Microsoft fascism. The music site I was using was e-music.com, which offers different content than the xbox music app that came with the device. I've used it on my xp computer, but wanted to switch to the newer one.

You won't have the capacity to run any applications from the Windows store. So incapacitating UAC for genuine has its downsides, yet recall that you can simply set EnableLUA back to 1 to run them. https://www.essaystigers.co.uk

I advise you to reinstall windows, because in many settings update may break the system. Of course this is not the solution to reinstall every time, but the example here - http://www.casestudywriter.org/ guy just disabled updates, and do not worry.

In my office of British Dissertation Writers, I've been using Windows 8 since it was first released. Despite what you might have heard, it works just like Windows 7 but with only one big difference.
