Download the newer Release Preview, the build is probably 8400 and that will fix the problem.

Hi

The Consumer Preview version (8250) no longer supports accessing the Windows Store.

 

Windows Store support for Windows 8 Consumer Preview ends on July 2nd: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_8-windows_store/windows-store-support-for-windows-8-consumer/5294a68d-c6aa-45a8-8d9b-368165b853de

 

To access the Windows Store, you will need to upgrade to the newer Release Preview (8400).
