My windows 8 app store is not loading and the preinstalled apps don't load as well desktop is runing just fine, I upgraded to windows 8 pro from windows 7 and I have lenovo u410

It is really frustrating that the one thing I got the upgrade for is not working. Looking for less complicated solutions. I have checked UAC and ran it with both local and live account.

I seem to be having the same problem too. All I'm getting is either a white screen after the app icon goes full screen or the app icon full screen with the little loading circle up top. And it never loads for me either. The only app I've gotten to work is the Map one. I've been looking all day to find a solution and I can't seem to find one.

Exactly same here the map app is working and nothing else is working. I even uninstalled my antivirus and now it won't let me install it back windows 8 is a total flop I though it would be a smooth experience as windows phone mango but its just been frustrating experience.

Wow, I'm having the same problem as well. I thought for a second that I was the only one. My predicament is exactly like yours, tukt. All of the apps don't work except the map app, the camera app, and the reader app. Everything else just either goes to a blank white screen or I see the loading circle that oddly moves to the top of the screen. I, too, am also running a Lenovo laptop and upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 8 Pro. I hope someone can find a solution to this, because I don't want to have to go through the process of resetting Windows 8 if there is a simple solution out there to fix this problem.

I'm facing the same issue.

After upgrading from windows 7, not able to load any of the pre-installed app.

Not even able to open windows store.

Not sure how to fix that. Any suggestions?

 

Thanks

I have the same issue too. They "were" all working when I did the initial upgrade last night, but now nothing. I'm thinking somethings wrong on Microsoft's end as my other, non-MS apps (i.e. tunein) are working still , it'll be nice if they let us know what's up.

Same Issue, no apps after the install other than a Store tile, which does nothing when I click it.
Gone through all the recommended 'fixes' to no avail.

I am also experiencing the issues above.  Upgraded from 7 to 8 Pro, when I click on the preloaded apps I get a loading screen but nothing comes up.  This includes the store app.

 

Desktop mode works fine.

Has anyone tried refreshing or resetting their PC? That's the only option that I have not tried yet, and I want to know if that solves this issue that we all seem to have. I backed up all of my programs and applications last night.

Hi everyone, I sent an email to Microsoft support and they replied with suggestions, one of them is to refresh the pc. I tried it and now I can use the windows 8 app. I think it's interface is just amazing and beautiful :).

Anyway, what u need to do is to type refresh in the search box and prepare ur upgrade file (whether u bought it via downloading or the CD pack). It does not take such a long time. 15 mins in my case. Hope this helps...
