Try restoring, you know an earlier restore point which you won't lose your files, it reverts back to the last time you might remember that it did work, maybe something was installed under that account that made the calculator not work, this is infact the first time I ever heard someone having windows calculator drama..

maybe a virus / trojan thats inject into the Calc.exe and block it
or maybe windows 10 got a error
or your RAM IS DAMAGED that makes FILES CORRUPT ! try memtest

reinstall your windows 10
*repairing or resets affecting your PC health and performance.

Was your win 10 a free upgrade from win7? If so, you can go to tech support for windows. it's a toll free # and tech support is free. They will do a remote and find the problem and fix it.

If everything works on the other account, you can delete your old account, but remember to copy your personal files and documents to your new account. Also have to mention that even though you’re using a local account you can easily turn it into a Microsoft account so you’ll still have access to all apps that you used to have.

Hi @finefin
Make sure that you have administrator write/ access user write before trying to troubleshoot.

Otherwise, I think individual profile resource files may got corrupted/ not created properly. Kindly try to reinstall the calculator with administrative writes. It is the simplest solution. If no then you need to recreate your profile.

For windows 10:

I hope your issue will be resolved by doing that.

Hello, @finefin There is two ways to solve this problem if you are using Windows 10.

1. Create new user account - But it looks like you did that. Next!

2. Re-register all Windows 10 apps - Here's how:

a. In the Search Bar, type PowerShell. Right-click PowerShell and click "Run as administrator".

b. Type this:

Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppXPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

Press Enter. Now your Calculator should be working. Oh yeah, don't forget it's case sensitive!

I think it is not a big problem to reinstall the system. I can download other calculator apps.
