Windows 10 Settings doesn’t work anymore. You see the window opening but then it immediately closes.
In the eventlog you can see an error from DCOM:
Log Name: System Source: Microsoft-Windows-DistributedCOM Event ID: 10010 Task Category: None Level: Error Keywords: Classic Description: The server windows.immersivecontrolpanel_10.0.2.1000_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy!microsoft.windows.immersivecontrolpanel did not register with DCOM within the required timeout.
DISM won’t fix this, the scanhealth and restorehealth options didn’t help.
To fix this follow these steps.
Open a CMD with run as administrator (elevated priveleges) and type:
cd c:\windows ren ImmersiveControlPanel ImmersiveControlPanel.old SFC /scannow
After SFC is finished, the settings windows should work again.
