Quick Assist app fails not working in Windows 10 Creators Update

Windows 10 Creators Update comes with new inbox “Quick Assist” App which shares a tablet or computer over a remote connection and allows you to help another person troubleshoot it, without emailing an invitation file. It is easy to use and available on all version, even on Home Edition. However, when I open it and sign in using my account on my Surface Pro 4, the app stuck at a blank screen and display “An error has occurred. We’ve run into a problem.
