It seems if a user logs into our LAN/AD using their AD credentials, a lot of the built in user apps (MS Photo, PDF viewer) stop working.   It seems they only work when logged into the pc with your MS live account info.

Is there some way for a user to be logged in using AD and have the build in apps all work?

Thanks!

Jimi, can you tell us more about that?  Which Windows are you running? 

In the four years or so since Win 8.0 appeared, I've been logging onto my workstation with AD domain creds but logged onto the Store with a hotmail account and everything runs.

What exactly doesn't happen -- the icons disappear so s/he can't even start the app?  What if the user goes to the EXE in Program Files and double-clicks it... does it start?  Try to start and immediately disappear?

It'd be interesting to run Procmon while trying and failing to run an app.

That site describes the opposite problem, when the user logs off.  Look at the event viewer.

It's OS 10 on a Surface 4.  I'm asking for a friend, who is trying to help a friend of his.

I'll try to get more info.  But I'm thinking that the situation is that logging into AD is a not same as what Windows 10 wants for it's Live account apps.  If you log into AD, can you still access those built in apps?
