Funny when Cortana was activated and no longer works at once. The error appeared with us and other users previously under Windows 10 Pro after signing in Microsoft accounts. Cortana then requires the location and activation of the position detection in Windows 10, even though it is already on. Restarting well as deleting and creating accounts do not help in general.

UPDATE: Cortana has been operating since Anniversary update for Windows 10 even if you have not activated the position determination.
