Adblock Plus Edge not working Win 10 anniversary update

Postby Cave Waverider » Tue Aug 02, 2016 10:54 pm

I've just upgraded to the Anniversary Update of Windows 10 64 bit (OS build 14393.10) and was really looking forward to use the Edge Browser with the Adblock Plus extension. So I installed it, but to my shock, it doens't work.
The Windows Store Adblock Plus page tells me "This app encountered a problem. Please reinstall it to repair." Whenever I click the "Reinstall" Button, it reinstalls it, to no avail.
It also isn't found in Edge under Extensions.

I tried uninstalling the extension via the app manager and installing it fresh, same problem.

I've tried this on four different PCs but just can't get it to work. Is Adblock Plus for Edge only compatible with the Insider preview and not the retail Anniversary update? Will you fix it? What's going on? What can I do to get it to work?

hey there

try this her

1) Close all open Applications
2) Go to Settings (control panel) —> System —> Apps & Features and deinstall all your installed edge extensions. (here i remove it)
3) Open Windows PowerShell and enter wsreset.exe and wait untill the Windows Store opens itself. (Took about 2 Minutes for me, don’t panic if it takes a while till something happens).
4) Go to Edge browser and download the extensions again (here install i it again)

it help me out
