Problem installing Windows Photos app

Recommended Posts



We recently rolled out a bunch of Windows 10 1607 machines, but during the TS we had removed the Windows Photos App.  We have since realised that this was a mistake and want to reinstall it on the affected machines.

I have spent the past week trying to figure out how to do this using Add-AppxPackage & add AppXProvisioned package, but to no avail.  Get-AppxPackage does returns a list of apps, but Photos isn't one of them, so I cannot pull the install location of the package from there (as is suggested by most of the internet).  I have also reied using the location in C:\Program Files\WindowsApps, but I have getting some sort of prerequisite error.  VCLibs appear to be installed, so it cannot be that.

Does anyone have any idea how to do this?

Many thanks
