  1. Can't reinstall Windows Store after attempting troubleshooting steps


    I was trying to fix an issue where my Windows Store wouldn't download or update any apps which was preventing me from opening certain programs. I followed the steps listed by Vijay_Verma's answer in this thread https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us...oad-apps/ed2e52f2-449c-4d62-af25-23e5d5f3ebdd and steps 1-4 didn't fix the issue.


    I went to step 5 to try uninstalling and reinstalling the store, and ran "Get-AppxPackage -allusers *WindowsStore* Remove-AppxPackage", which uninstalled the store, but when I tried running "Get-AppxPackage -allusers *WindowsStore* Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$$_.InstallLocation\AppXManifest.xml”}" to reinstall the store, it is giving me an error message:


    PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> Get-AppxPackage -allusers *WindowsStore* Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$$_.InstallLocation\AppXManifest.xml"}

    Add-AppxPackage : Deployment failed with HRESULT: 0x80073CF9, Install failed. Please contact your software vendor. Exception from HRESULT: 0x80073CF9

    Unable to update all user store with package Microsoft.NET.Native.Runtime.2.2_2.2.28604.0_x86__8wekyb3d8bbwe with error: 0x80070057

    NOTE: For additional information, look for [ActivityId] f5289a23-6961-0006-a53d-29f56169d601 in the Event Log or use the command line Get-AppPackageLog -ActivityID f5289a23-6961-0006-a53d-29f56169d601

    I now have no Windows Store, and lost access to several programs and games on my PC, and need help getting Windows Store reinstalled. I would like to avoid doing a complete reinstall of Windows because it requires uninstalling several hundreds of gigs of programs that I don't want to have to re-download due to ISP data caps. I have attempted a system restore, which failed due to running out of disk space, and now system restore is showing no available restore points.

    The tutorials provided are just a list of troubleshooting steps. Use only the steps which apply to you.

    Since none of the troubleshooting steps here worked, I'd suggest you do a Clean install.
