Windows Store won't load on Windows 8.1 Enterprise RRS feed

    In the past week I have been unable to launch the Windows Store app. It just opens and spins endlessly on the loading screen.

    I'm not sure if its related, but in the last week my company had DNS issues that they fixed, although I'm not sure what was involved in the fix.

    I have searched and tried numerous fixes at this point and no result and am close to doing a Windows Refresh and starting over but I'm worried about losing saved app data specific to games or apps that will be lost that I believe is saved locally.

    I have tried:

    Running the App troubleshoot for Windows app - Which it tells me Service Registration is missing or corrupt. Digging in it says the BITS is already started which is why it couldn't be restarted.

    Running the Windows Update Troubleshooter if found and fixed issues with BITS (service is already started) one with a RootCause of RC_DataStore and error code 0x80070057

    Running the Microsoft Account Troubleshooter - Gave me a "Can’t connect to Sync service" and "Rootcauses found and created logs" Although I suspect its because my work blocks MS sync which is why I am unable to sign into xbox live services at work. Store still doesn't work on home network.

    I have verified that I am not using a proxy server for LAN

    I have tried Wsreset.exe - Just spins still

    I have sfc /scannow - Told me it found corrupt files but was unable too fix all of them. Looking at the log file it says I had 1 CSI Payload Corruption which was not fixed.

    Repair failed: Missing replacement payload."

    Tried a different user, both microsoft and local as well as un-linking and linking the MS account to my domain account.

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

    Verified I have no Windows updates to install and tried to use the command line to install updates behind the scenes.

    Checked my date and time was correct.

    Anything in this list that looks suspicious or anything else I can try?

  • Hi MoneyShot360,

    We could run chkdsk /r from an elevated command prompt and restart Windows. When the disk check has finished, run again the sfc /scannow command.

    Please refer to the link below to get more information.


    Hope it will be helpful to you

  • Unfortunately the chkdsk /r, then restart then sfc /scannow resulted in the same "found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them.

    In the log file, among other things I found this, is this related, or should I look for something else in the log file?

  • Since sfc scannow didn't fix the problem, I moved onto the DISM commands and upon trying to run a -RestoreHealth I get error code 0x800f0906.
