The above errors occur if the Capability Access Manager Service (CamSvc) is disabled.



The Capability Access Manager Service provides facilities for managing UWP apps access to app capabilities as well as checking an app’s access to specific app capabilities.

On a default Windows installation, the CamSvc is set to Manual start.
