I ran into the problem almost same like this on windows 10. I was unable to open system settings, network setting and other apps. When i tried to open settings using RUN commandms-settings:then i get the same error message. Tried almost every possible way written on internet.

You are watching: This app does not support the contract specified or is not installed

So, only the following thing worked. I Reinstalled and Re-Registered Windows Apps using powershell by following command.

To do this, open thePowerShell(just type “powershell” into the Start menu Search, then right-click it and “Run as administrator”) and enter the following command:

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

This app does not support the contract specified or is not installed
Problem: I have an issue developing my app on a VM provided by the project owner which is running Windows Server 2016. The problem I"m facing is when developing a WinRT application in Visual Studio 2015 and when working with XAML files - Visual Studio fails to open the visual ... Execute() I can start the app just fine, so the problem is only with the VS editor. Any idea how to solve this problem?
