Windows 8.1 Apps Wont Open after Corel Draw X14, Corel Draw X13 installation

All windows Apps stopped working. When I try to open any windows 8.1 App it will open, show up start App Screen and then close. I was able to see the app on my "Taskbar". I tried all the solutions given on different forums. i.e ran system file checker, tried system app troubleshooter. nothing worked for me.
I found that it happened after I installed Corel Draw X4. The Corel Draw x4 installation changed some permissions to the App store and apps.
  1. Open Registry Editor regedit.exe
  2. Right Click on HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT
  3. Click on "Permissions"
  4. You must have a "ALL APPLICATION PACKAGES" in "Group or User Names". If not present then it is the ROOT OF PROBLEM
  5. Click on "Add".
  6. Click on "Advanced".
  7. Click on "Find Now".
  8. You will see in the "Search Results" -> "ALL APPLICATION PACKAGES".
  9. Double click on it and in "Select Users or Groups" You will see it in "Enter the Object name to select".
  10. Click "Ok".
  11. Now you will see "ALL APPLICATION PAcKAGES" in "Group or User Names:" list. Click on it.
  12. click on "Allow" -> "Read". and Click Ok
  13. Close Registry Editor. No need to restart.
  14. Click on your apps All of them should be working.
Thanks and Enjoy.
