    How to reinstall Store.


    Well, it is a continuing issue. Over last two updates, I faced some issues with the metro apps. After the updates, some apps fail to work.

    Previously, when I installed the 10159 upgrade, some apps did not respond for the first time. I got the great help from Kari to fix it. The process that I followed was to uninstall the probleming apps using PowerShell and then install them back from store.

    Now, with the 10166 upgrade, the store itself was the problem, alongwith two other apps. So I uninstalled store itself too (using powershell) .... and I think that I have done something very wrong. *Redface No way I am seeing to get those apps back in this situation.

    Is there any way to get store back without performing a clean reinstall? Please guide me if there is a way.

    Thanks a great lot in advance. *Smile

    :)

    Try going to Ovi store through the web browser and logging in, then when requested to 'shop smart' download the app, it may overwrite. Assuming you cant remove the app from phone either in the applications folder using the 'organise' function to delete,
    or by removing from the Installed Applications folder in settings ! )

    How to reinstall Store.

    Arc, try this. Create a restore point first!

    Elevated PowerShell, you need first unrestricted script execution rights, command is:
    Code: Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted[/quote] Then re-register the Store:
    Code: Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $Env:SystemRoot\WinStore\AppxManifest.XML[/quote] Close the PowerShell, the store should work now. If it will not start, give this command in Command Prompt (not PowerShell!):
    Code: start "" "ms-windows-store:"[/quote] Come back to tell if we need to try something else or if this worked.

    Looks as if the Store really is completely gone. If you search for Store with Cortana / Search, is it shown?

    How to reinstall Store.

    Arc, if SFC /SCANNOW can't fix it then I would either use system restore, restore an image or refresh Windows.

    SFC did not find any issue.

    I am going to take the other options now. System restore first, and then (if it also dont work) refresh windows.

    I ended up with a reset, and now things are nicely responding.

    The only thing is ... I have to reinstall the programs.

    Thank you so much, Kari!! *Thumbs
     
  11. I got similar problem. There is no folder "Winstore" on my c drive. When i open Win Store immediately it force close. Same XBOX, Grove, TV (i did not check all modern program) They were working on my first win10 build, but after some updates its not. Im on nevest build 10240. Reset system its not option to me, beacause i got many of programs that i dont want reinstall and configure. I tried sfc / dism. Even i tried "update" via iso file but it shows that i cant update.

    It says 'solved' but is "format c:" really a solution or rather a bandaid? Just like realpinkman I'd prefer not having to reinstall windows.
    And like realpinkman I don't have a winstore on my c drive which results in the:
    .. error message from powershell.

    SFC /SCANNOW does absolutely nothing.

    I'm suspecting that doing an upgrade from Windows 7 (perhaps 8 as well but it had apps, right?) results in not having the winstore folder making it hard to reinstall the windows store.

    It's frustrating because all I really want is to play freaking Solitaire which is now an app!

    EDIT: Been looking around the web regarding windows store problems for windows 8 and lo and behold, they had the same problem upgrading from win7 to win8. Avira is also mentioned in one post and I do have Avira installed as I upgraded from Win7 to win8. Anyone else that has Avira antivirus? Just trying to narrow it down.

    @Arch @Kari @Brink I was having problems today with the Store(after a clean install) and tried everything to fix it, including uninstalling(planned to reinstall). Ha Ha on me!" How to fix the store is unimportant, what is, is how I finally got it back after trying different things & commands, all of which didn't work. Instead of going the extreme like Arc., I popped in my ISO USB and did an In-Place Upgrade and got it back(plus all the unwanted apps too*Sad). I was able to keep everything and just had to turn location back on and run Windows Update*Smile.

    I hope this information helps if it happens again or anyone else that searches the forums.

    Incidentally I just found the problem with store: After the clean install(and In-Place Upgrade being all settings were saved) my clock was set to the wrong time zone*Doh
