Steps to reproduce

On some computers only, the msLaunchUri API does not work (nothing happens after calling the method, no success or error callback).

  1. Register a custom URI scheme in the system
  2. Use the msLaunchUri on Edge to launch it, adding a trace to the success and error callbacks
    Expected: a prompt (Yes|No) is displayed to the user, asking whether he meant to switch app. Or the error callback to be called on failure.

  • As James M. from the MS Edge Team said in #6761763, the problem with the success callback needs to be treated in a separate bug, which is this one => reopening.
