Windows 8.1 will not install using Windows Store if you have moved your User folders


  • A lot of people have moved their Windows "Users" folders to another hard disk as the size of the C drive is smaller (typically using an SSD). I used the following process to move my user folders (using audit mode) -

    4275-user-profiles-relocate-another-partition-disk at website under tutorials.

    Now when I went to install Windows 8.1 it comes back with an error that the application wasn't installed with an Error code of 0xc1900102.

    I can install normal Windows 8 programs with no issues, so I am not sure why this is happening.

    I saw a post from someone installing a preview version that also had the same issue but I couldn't find a solution/fix or workaround. Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem and are looking for a solution or have any ideas on how to solve this.

    I was thinking about re-creating the moved folder back on C drive just to see if it tricks it into work...
