How to repair the new “Store (Beta)” in Windows 10 Technical Preview

The latest build of Windows 10 Technical Preview contains a new version of Windows Store, called “Store (Beta)”.  If I’m having problems launching the new Store, how can I repair it?


As you may be aware, the current build of Technical Preview contains two Windows Store apps – the old Windows 8.1 Store (simply called “Store”), and the new Windows 10 Store, called “Store (Beta)”.


Throughout the forums, you can find troubleshooting methods for repairing the Store app – for example, this Wiki article provides an excellent compilation of these methods.  Unfortunately, these techniques will generally only repair the older version of the Store in Technical Preview.


If you are having problems launching the new “Store (Beta)”, we recommend running the following PowerShell script to re-register the new Store:


  1. In the Search box, type CMD

  2. Right click on Command Prompt and choose Run as administrator

  3. In the command prompt, enter the following command:

PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Command "& {$manifest = (Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.WindowsStore).InstallLocation + '\AppxManifest.xml' ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest}"
