  1. Microsoft Store and apps don't open. Nothing works to fix.


    Hi. I've read just about every discussion and suggestion how to fix this, but none of them help.


    I had no problems until 2 days ago when I attempted to install an add-on for MS Edge. Install was unsuccessful, it downloaded several times but gave an error that couldn't install. While doing this in MS store I saw I had several updates for Windows apps. I clicked to update all. Some of them updated, and others gave the same error as an add-on I tried to install. The store kept trying to redownload and install apps continuously, each time with a pop up error message.


    I restarted the computer (Surface Pro) and ran MS Store Apps troubleshooter and then reset it. Since then I can't open MS Store and a lot of other apps like calendar, calculator, Edge, maps, skype, etc. Store is not even listed in All Programs list.


    I made sure Windows has the latest updates. The location and time zone is set correctly. Proxy server is not checked. I turned off anti virus.

    I reset Store cache several times (wsreset.exe).

    I can't re-register Store in PowerShell as admin.

    I can't add another user account. MS Account window pops up black and disappears in a second.

    I can't install the Store from my account from the browser. When I choose to install to this PC it doesn't do anything. I restarted computer many times.


    What can fix this other than a total Windows reinstall?

    :)

    Mail app will not open on 10041.


    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. Microsoft Store and apps don't open. Nothing works to fix. :)

    In this Windows 10 build 10041, the Mail, Calendar, and People apps may be broken due to a licensing issue with the Store Beta. To get these apps working again, you need to follow these steps:

    • Open powershell as administrator
    • Run the command Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like “*windowscommunicationsapps*”} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online
    • Re-install Mail, People and Calendar from the Store (green tile)
