    it does not seem application related - other packages (f.e. Skype) fail as well.

    I could not find any usefull information regarding the error. anyone has some inside?

  • Hi,

    First I would like you to try following suggestions:

    Suggestion 1: Reset Windows store by run wsreset.exe.

    Suggestion 2: Register Store state:

    Get-AppXPackage | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

    Suggestion 3: If you get any third part security app installed on your computer, please try to install app under Clean boot since it will sometimes block the installation:

    How to perform a clean boot
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135

    Suggestion 4: Check if we can install this app on another user account, please create a new one and connect to your Microsoft account then.

  • 1: same result

    2: same result, new error code: 0x8E5E0407 (was: 0x8E5E0408)

    3: no malware/virus etc found (it's a fresh install)

    4: this worked, but the app now is only usable in the other account

    .... what's up with that?!
