    Store app broken


    The latest Updates, KB3074679 & KB3074686, seem to have broken the Store app, opens only to the initial screen with the swirling dots then immediately closes after about half the dots being visible. Can't update the Store if it doesn't open. Link to report to Microsoft also missing now.

    :)

    Try typing wsreset either in file explorers address bar, run dialog or command prompt to reset the store and all uni apps.

    I was able to catch a screenshot and this is all I get before it closes, as described:

    Store app broken

    You can try fixing the files by copy & pasting in an Admin
    Command Prompt:

    Dism.exe/online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup&sfc/scannow&Dism/Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth&sfc/scannow&pause

    And let it run through then
    reboot and run it again to check if it cleaned everything. It
    may take a while depending on your hardware(HDD or SSD), and it may
    appear to freeze at 20% on the third part, just be patient and
    let it run out.

  9. If the dism. sfc commands that Cliff S provided don't resolve the issue ...

    You might try signing-in to your MS account
    Sign in to your Microsoft account

    You could also try uninstalling those suspected updates - change your network to metered to prevent auto-install, reboot
    If the store is operable, go immediately to the store and check for updates. There was a Store app update that might unravel something.

    Same here, any help?

    PS: Windows Update is in "Notify" mode with the tutorial that I found here.

    When a Windows app from the Store will not load or open, it may just need to be registered again to fix it.

    This tutorial will show you how to re-register all Windows Store apps installed in your user account in Windows 8 or Windows 10.

    *SadI wasn't really sure if it would, because it's for an older build, but it was worth a try though.
