Windows 10: Falied to logon to the Spotify desktop client.

June 22, 2015

I recently experienced a issue with the Spotify client on my Windows 10 Build 10130.

I wasnt able to logon using my Facebook account and recived the following message.

image The only thing that worked was the tip “If you have a Facebook-connected Spotify account, you can also login using your Facebook email address and password as your Spotify username and password. (These won’t be stored.)”.

This is how you do that.

facebook-app-password1

  1. Go to Security Settings: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=security&vie​w
  2. Find App Passwords and click Edit
  3. Click the Generate App Passwords
  4. Click the Generate App Passwords (again 🙂 )

    FB-AppPW
  5. Enter a friendly name for the app, for instance: Spotify
  6. Click Generate Password
  7. Log on to Spotify using your Facebook Email as username with the password you just created.

Happy listening..


And so it begins…

Replace Command Prompt in Windows + X

April 13, 2015

If you haven’t already I would suggest that you change the Command Prompt to use PowerShell instead.

WinX

The replacement process is really straight forward, Right-click on Taskbar and select Properties option.

Choose the “Navigation” tab and check “Replace Command Prompt with Windows PowerShell in the menu when I right-click the lower-left corner or press Windows key+X

WinX-2


Fix broken Mail, Calendar, and People apps

April 13, 2015

I updated my Windows 10 build to Build 10049 a couple of days ago and realized that my Mail, Colander and People apps had stopped working again. The same happened with the 10041 update and a quick reinstall of the apps from the Store and the App was functional again.

This time I received an error message.

To uninstall the app you need to use PowerShell,

Run PowerShell as Administrator and type the following command and then install the App from Store again.

Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like “*windowscommunicationsapps*”} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online


Another Windows 10 fix

March 27, 2015

iFrmewrk.exe
The program can’t start because MSVCR110.dll is missing from your computer.
Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem

I looked in the Windows 10 feedback database and saw that at least one more has the same issue that I had after upgrading to Build 1041. I added my solutions off course to the issue but that isn’t visible (as far as I can see)

Well this issue is related to the Intel Wireless driver.

I use my work laptop a Dell Latitude E7440 so i downloaded and installed the Windows 8.1 version of the driver package and the problem was solved.


SOLVED Couldn’t install Windows 10 Technical Preview

March 19, 2015

Well today is two blog posts in a row 😀 Both covering Windows 10.

After my first issue I ran into another that had me stunned for a while.

WTF

“Couldn’t install Windows 10 Technical Preview.  Windows can’t be installed because this PC has an unsupported disk layout for UEFI firmware.  Please reboot and change the PC’s firmware to BIOS to allow Windows to setup to continue.”

I then looked into the log C:\$Windows.~BT\Sources\Panther\setupact.log

There I found the cause to this error:

CONX ConX::Compatibility::CSystemAbstraction::HostIsUEFIDiskLayout: Boot disk has ESP partition.
CONX ConX::Compatibility::CSystemAbstraction::HostIsUEFIDiskLayout: Boot disk does not have MSR partition.
ConX::Compatibility::CSystemAbstraction::HostIsUEFIDiskLayout: Boot disk does not have UEFI disk layout.

I didn’t seem to have a MSR partition. https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd799232%28v=ws.10%29.aspx#MicrosoftRecoveryPartitions

A quick look using diskpart confirmed this. So i opened up some space on the disk using Disk Management and created the partition.

That sorted the issue and I’m writing this blog post from Build 10041
