    Issues with Windows Store and Store Apps, Unable to launch.


    Every since the last windows update none of the windows applications are working for me anymore. When I try to open the windows store it either doesn't do anything or opens for a second and closes. This is the error I get whenever I try to use something like photos,

    In case anyone suggests it, I already ran this command on powershell


    Get-AppXPackage | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}


    And it always has an error saying it can't install because processes are still open. I've tried doing it the second I power on my laptop.

    Microsoft is purging a lot of low quality apps from the Windows Store

    "Microsoft is sending emails to some Windows Store developers informing them that their apps have been removed from the Store for violating its quality standards."

    "Neowin reports that app developers have been receiving these emails over the past couple of days:

    In its latest review of the Store, Microsoft is evaluating if the published apps are good enough to be listed in the Windows Store. This includes publicly available apps as well as private beta apps. Additionally, Microsoft is also asking developers to delete any promotional campaigns for their apps to prevent advertising charges. Similarly, app name reservations are also being nullified; which means that if your app is unpublished, there's no guarantee that you'll be able to republish it under the same name.

    Officially, the policies for the Microsoft Store says that apps must have "distinct and informative metadata" and "provide a valuable and quality user experience". There are also some specific standards that must be in the apps, including having a name that is not similar to another app or device, along with offering a description that is accurate about its features and functions.

    There have certainly been many Windows Store users who have complained over the years about the large number of apps published that are clones of other apps or ones that are simply poorly made. Hopefully, this new move by Microsoft will help to curb these issues, at least for now.

    Windows Store Issue - Cannot launch

    Hi Zac,

    To be able to troubleshoot your concern with launching the Windows Store, kindly try the methods provided below and let us know if the issue persists:

    Method 1: Run the Windows store app troubleshooter

    • Type in Troubleshooting in the search bar.
    • Select Troubleshooting.
    • Select View all on the top left corner.
    • Click on Windows Store app.
    • Follow the on-screen instructions.

    Method 2: Create a new user

    If the issue still persists, we suggest that you create a new user account with administrator privileges and check if the issue is resolved.

    Refer to this support article for the steps on how to:
    Set up accounts
    .

    The corrupted user profile does not function normally such as not launching Start menu, Cortana, Search bar, Store and other Windows applications. In such cases creating a new profile and checking for the same will help in identifying if the issue is
    specific to a corrupted user profile.

    Keep us posted and we will be glad to assist you further.
