Power Apps Player won't load apps

Hello,

 

About a week ago Windows Power Apps Player started saying, "This app didn't install correctly. Please try again."  I can see the apps, but it won't install them.  It's worked pretty much flawlessly for the last three years.  My iPad version works.

 

I tried logging out/in and re-installing the app, but to no avail.   I tried creating a new app without any connections, but it didn't work.  

 

Desktop Version: 3.18054.42 Session ID: 6a669bd6-bbda-4923-ae4e-fa9592388f4b

Power Apps Studio Release: 3.21041.29

The iPad version of Power Apps matches the Studio version.

 

Thank you.

The Windows Store PowerApp player has been pretty much retired.  You have to really search around to try and even find it any more.  Hasn't been updated in years and rumor is that Microsoft will remove it from the store at some point.

The preference on the PC is to run the app in the browser.

 

I hope this is helpful for you.

I guess I was living on borrowed time.  Thank you.

Yes, it still "works" but it doesn't support most of the new features of the platform (my understanding of where it is now).  I still have it installed, but haven't fired it up until you mentioned it here.  It still seems to work, but I'd not trust it for anything any more.
