Possible fix for Microsoft Teams crash at startup.

My case seems unique.

The error was:

Faulting application name: Teams.exe, version: 1.4.0.8872, time stamp: 0x5e851aee
Faulting module name: LocationApi.dll, version: 6.3.9600.18302, time stamp: 0x57097bd9
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x000000000002fa35
Faulting process id: 0x1104
Faulting application start time: 0x01d73b25ca14950b
Faulting application path: C:\Users\michael\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Teams\current\Teams.exe
Faulting module path: C:\Windows\System32\LocationApi.dll
Report Id: 10957e93-a719-11eb-80ee-54bef73d236c
Faulting package full name:
Faulting package-relative application ID:

So, the fault appears to be in relation to LocationApi.dll.

This is on a Windows 8.1 system.

My eventual solution was to take ownership of that file, and rename it. I’m not sure what it will break yet, but time will tell. Mine was 338kb from 11/8/2016
