Unable to install any Windows Store app. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have tried:

    1. Reset Microsoft Store app.
    2. Run Windows Store Troubleshooter.
    3. Make sure time, date, and region settings are right.
    4. Run SFC multiple times.
    5. Uninstall and reinstall Microsoft Store app multiple times.
    6. Deleted C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore and C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download multiple times by Starting Windows 10 in safe mode.
    7. Run Windows in clean mode by disabling all non essential services and startup apps.
    8. Did a repair install of Windows 10.

    Whenever I try to install a store app, I get two entries in the Event Viewer:

    First:

  • Accroding to your conditions,I will provide you with some methods:

    1. Make sure your filewall is disabled;
    2. You can change a network connection to see if it can work;
    3. Check your license is correct
    • Go to Windows Store
    • Press Windows key + C
    • Open settings
    • Select App Updates
    • Sync Licenses

    If these can't help you,I suggest you to reset your PC->keep my files->delete userprofile->create new account,and log on it to test.

  • Thank you for trying to help here, Charlotte.

    Nothing happens when I do Press Windows key + C while Microsoft Store is open.   Is there another way to open settings.  The Settings that I have found looks like the following:

  • Did you mean this one?

    If I select it, I get what I showed earlier with a screenshot. It does not have "Sync Licenses"

  • Hi,

    I'm so sorry for that...The method is applied to the older version.

    Could the method change another network or change another account work?

    And another is to disable the antivirus.

  • Hi,

    And you can open the PowerShell as Administrator,

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

    If it doesn't work,you can try it:

    You can fix it by taking ownership of folder "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps" and then I give my user and 'All Application Packages' full control and all apps return to normal.(I tried it but users can't get full control,users got it)

    Hope this can help you.

    Best regards,

    Charlotte Tang

    No thanks,

    Delete files in the 

    C:\Users(username)\AppData\local\Packages\Microsoft.WindowsStore_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache

    ->Close the app and log in again.

  • Thank you for the tip.

    I have just followed all the steps, unfortunately the problem remains.

    I should let you know that the same account works on other Windows 10 PCs of mine for downloading apps.

    I see apps are updated in the background successfully:
