  1. I removed Microsoft Store through Powershell- Need to Restore


    Hello,


    Due to a recurring issue with the Store/Xbox on Windows, I followed troubleshooting advice and removed the Store through Powershell. I was not able to follow through on restoring it due to a consistent Access Denied response in Powershell that I have not been able to resolve. I have also tried reseting with WSReset but that does not help.


    I do not wish to restore all of Windows for a variety of reasons. Is there anyway to bring back the store?


    Thank you

    :)

    Restore Microsoft Store application in Windows 10

    After multiple attempts, I managed to get Store open by enabling Developer mode (as suggested by one of the posters here) and running the command "Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers| Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}" in Powershell. Not sure if is exactly the solution since I've tried different steps suggested by different users in different forums (including uninstalling Store separately) but hey, I am not complaining!

  3. Microsoft Store > Apps > iMobContact > version problem

    Hello Yann,

    Thank you for the reply.

    I suggest you to follow below mentioned steps and see if that helps.

    Step 1: Check updates in Microsoft store:

    1. Open Microsoft store.
    2. Top right hand corner select ‘Downloads and updates’.
    3. Click on updates for ‘IMob contact’.
    4. Once all the updates installed, restart the computer.

    Step 2: Uninstall the application using PowerShell command.

    1. Click on ‘Start button’ and type ‘PowerShell’.
    2. Right click on ‘PowerShell’ and select as ‘Run as administrator’.
    3. Once you see a ‘PowerShell Window’, copy paste the below mentioned command line:
    Get-AppxPackage *Imob* | Remove-AppxPackage

    1. IMob application will be uninstalled successfully.
    2. Restart the computer to effect the settings.

    Note: If the package full name is too long, you may use wildcard selectors to uninstall any application found in the wildcard.

    For example: Get-AppxPackage *officehub* | Remove-AppxPackage

    Step 3: Once after following
    step 2, try to download the 'IMob contact' application from store and see if that helps.

    Hope it helps.

    Microsoft store.

    Hi Monty,

    The error message Windows cannot find ‘ms-windows-store: PurgeCaches’. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again means that your Microsoft Store is not registered. For us to assist you, we suggest that you follow the steps listed below
    to re-register your Microsoft Store:

    • Press the Windows button + X.
    • Click on Command Prompt (Admin).
    • In the command prompt, enter the following command:

      PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $Env:SystemRoot\WinStore\AppxManifest.xml
    • Restart your PC and see if the issue persists.

    Let us know how it goes and if you need further assistance, feel free to post back.
