  2. Unable to install apps from Windows 10 Store

    I'm unable to install / update / repair any app from Win10 Store.
    I couldn't find any solutions, hence posting here.

    This keeps happening despite repeatedly resetting Windows.
    Once I reset my PC, Store seems to work for about 1~2 days and then starts showing the following error msg:

    [Image of error msg while installing any app through Windows 10 Store]

    I followed what Microsoft suggested:

    1. reset Windows 10 Store app through cmd and gui [both failed unable to update or install apps via Microsoft Store, please help, i have tried many tips... :(]
    2. almost every link suggested by Google (windows 10 store not working - Google Suche)
    3. Also contacted Microsoft Support as a last resort, but to no avail.

    Lastly, I thought this was because of my University's restrictions on Win 10 education; however, other PCs & laptops [with same version of OS] don't seem to have this problem.

    It is able to update Windows apps like Microsoft Office 360 and other system apps distributed through Win10 Store.

    Has anyone else faced this problem before in any dist. of Windows 10? Did you find any solutions?

    PC config details:

    • Alienware Aurora R7
    • Win10 Education V1809
    • Intel Core i7-8700K @3.70 GHz
    • 32 G installed RAM
    • Nvidia GTX 1080Ti

  3. Apps won't install in Microsoft Store

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    We understand your concern as you are unable to install apps in Microsoft Store. In order to get clarity and to assist you accordingly, please reply with the answers
    to the questions below:




    • Do you have any non-Microsoft antivirus program installed?

    • Does this issue occur for all apps from the store?
    • What is the date and time on the PC and ensure it is correct?



    Meanwhile,
    we would suggest you to perform these steps and after every step check if you are able to install the app.



    Step
    1:
    Reset the Windows Store Cache: Press the Windows
    Logo Key + R
    to open the Run
    dialog box, type wsreset.exe, and then select OK.



    Note:
    A blank Command Prompt window will open, and after about ten seconds the window will close and Microsoft Store will open automatically.



    Step 2: Run the Windows Store Apps Troubleshooter: Select the
    Start button, and then select Settings>Update & Security
    > Troubleshoot, and then from the list select Windows
    Store apps
    > Run the troubleshooter.



    Step 3:
    Refer the troubleshooting steps and mentioned
    in this article: Fix
    problems with apps from Microsoft Store




    Step 4: If you have any non-Microsoft security/antivirus software installed, disable it temporarily and
    then try installing the game.



    Step 5: If the issue persists, then we would suggest you to create a new administrator user account and
    check, refer this article to create
    a local user or administrator account in Windows 10
    .

    Unable to update App Installer in Windows 10 Pro Microsoft Store

    Thanks for your reply, I tried all above steps but nothing worked. the strange thing is in Microsoft Store shows that App Installer is installed and an update is available, but during Troubleshooting process It goes through reset app process and opened
    App & features menu but there is no such App Installer app is listed. It looks like App Installer in not even installed in my system but then why Microsoft Store is showing an update for this app?
