Microsoft Edge Crashing on Launch

EdgeI have no idea what I did, but this week Microsoft Edge started crashing on launch on my Windows 10 Desktop. It worked for other users, but not for me. Here’s what I did to fix it:

  1. Delete the contents of the folder C:\Users\jsmith\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe, where jsmith is replaced by your user name.
  2. Hit Ctrl+Shift+Esc to bring up Task Manager.
  3. In Task Manager choose File > Run new task.
  4. Type in Powershell and make sure the Create this task with administrative privileges option is checked.
  5. In the Powershell window enter this command.

Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers -Name Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml” -Verbose}

After running the command you should be able to launch Microsoft Edge again!


Move KiGB Saves to New Mac / KiGB Save File Location

Pokemon Red in KiGBDo you use KiGB? Did you get a new computer? Surprised to see that just copying your ROMs over wouldn’t suffice? I know, I was. It took some digging, but I eventually found where the ROM save files are stored.

/Users/[username]/Library/Application Support/Bannister/KiGB/Battery RAM

Quick note: Save files have to have the same name as their ROM file. Hope this helps!
