Q: Windows Store Opens, then closes immediately This thread is locked from future replies

I just updated to Windows 8.1 from a Windows 8 computer (Dell XPS 14)


Now the Store, where I actually downloaded the update, does not work.  I click on it, it opens and closes.


If a new "test account" is created, it works.


Moving my profile from the existing one to a new one seems extreme and way too much work which results in essentially reinstalling the OS.


Is there any way to fix this?


Many thanks.

Answer

A:

Had the same problem on several computers and found that this solution from MS worked quite well.


Open the Command Window as an administrator to re-register the Store app by entering the following command immediately after C:\Windows\system32 (you can right click and paste into the command window if you wish):


powershell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $Env:SystemRoot\WinStore\AppxManifest.xml

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.
