Apps / Software :: Lenovo IdeaPad - Unable To Download Free Apps From Store

Feb 2, 2014

I tried downloading various apps from the store, but the message I get was I can't install this app.For example, I tried to install PDF Reader 8, and I get error code 0x80070032. Does the error code reveal what the problem is? I am running Windows 8, not Windows 8.1, on the Lenovo IdeaPad.

Apps / Software :: How To Download Free Apps In Windows Store

Feb 11, 2014

Is it possible to download free apps from Windows Store directly (without going through "Windows Store" icon/apps in Windows 8.1? I'm having a problem with Windows Store in my OS, whenever I try it, it just said no network connection, but I can surf no problem using FF/Skype etc. If I can go directly to Windows Store website and download the apps directly from there, it'll be awesome, but everytime I tried, it just goes back to my OS Windows Store.

Apps / Software :: Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 - Microsoft Office 2013 Will Not Install

Nov 1, 2013

Office 2013 will not install on my computer. It starts going and at some point it just says there's an error and quits. It doesn't give me an error number or anything, it just stops. Here's a little context though:

I have a Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13, and overall I've been very satisfied with the computer. However, it only came with a 128 GB SSD hard drive, so I decided to add another 128 GB SSD in the second hard drive slot. I got it in the computer and it works perfectly as far as I can tell.The only other thing I changed on my computer was to move the music library to the new hard drive. After adding the hard drive, I tried to use office some time later and it wouldn't work. I tried repairing it with the install disk, and it didn't work. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, and it didn't work. It always just stops at some point as I said above. Is there a reason adding a hard drive or moving a library would effect Office?

Apps / Software :: Unable To Download New Apps Or Run Existing Ones?

Sep 15, 2014

I can only run apps when NOT connected to the internet. Only pre installed apps becauce I can't download new ones. When connected to the internet I can use a browser, use email and go to the apps store. If I try to run any apps they try to open up and then I get the message "Can't log into Xbox" or something like that. I DON'T HAVE AN XBOX. Why do microsoft assume everyone owns all of their products. I have uninstalled everything mention of Xbox but this get the same problem.

I tried to download an app - three days later it was still trying. I just get a blank square on the home screen with some dots scrolling along the bottom of the box. I have tried various apps and nothing ever downloads.

Apps / Software :: How To Download Itunes Free Video / Audio Without ITunes

Aug 19, 2014

I have an online course where the audio/video files are in itune store, but everytime I click on the link, it said itmss protocol is not registered in Windows, so the only solution seems to download/install iTunes for Windows. I'm trying to use VLC for all my audio/video files, so if I can avoid installing iTunes and still be able to download and watch the course video/audio, would be ideal.

Here are my questions:

- how can I visit itune store and check which free video/audio files are available to download. The ideal would be just click on the link, but everytime I tried that, the FF responded that does not know how to handle it.

- what's the format used by apple for audio/video files in itune store?

- supposed that I could download the video/audio files from itune store, is it possible to play with VLC?

My environment:
- Windows 8.1 pro
- VLC 2.1.3
- intel i3 CPU

Lenovo Ideapad Y510p - Too Much RAM Usage

Jul 22, 2013

So I've recently bought lenovo ideapad y510p (notebook) and when i am doing nothing or just browsing internet it's RAM usage is somewhere between 25% which is 4 gb. I think it's too much for only google chrome, skype, antivirus and OS. When I go to task manager it is saying that I use 500 mb of memory. So where is those 3-4 gb used ?

Apps / Software :: Unable To Sign In Or Update Anything Within Windows Store

Feb 4, 2014

I am able to login to my computer using my Microsoft account but if I try logging into the Windows Store, installing any new apps or updating any of them I get random error codes that I have Googled and they don't lead to anything. I thought it might be related to security software (I use Norton Internet Security) so I tried disabling it and it didn't do anything. I have no viruses or any other kind of malware so why this is happening. I have updated my laptop to Windows 8.1 if that makes any difference.

Dell :: XPS 8700 - Unable To Download Windows 8.1 Upgrade From MS Store

Jul 9, 2014

I have a new XPS8700.  I have been unable to download the Windows 8.1 upgrade from the MS Store. My first problem was a lack of Windows updates, which I did, and now I can see the 8.1 upgrade in the store. I can also download updates to other aps.

My remaining problem is a continual notice every time I hit download that I need to first log into an account with admin access.  Best I can tell, this and other forums have shown me how to add Admin capability with the Command prompt.  I even created a second account and did the same thing.  Within the User Summary screen within control panel, both Users show "administrator".  Yet I still cannot get access

I have tried "net user administrator /active:yes" as well as tried same with swapping my name for administrator

The actual "administrator" user cannot do anything within the App Store.  That appears to be what is supposed to happen.

I'm another user with the same situation, it did not work, the direct download stated, does not work with this system.

Apps / Software :: Update Apps Of Windows Store For All Users With Local Account

May 19, 2013

It is possible update for all users the Windows Store apps with a local account belonging to the Administrators group? Then, I believe that the management of updating of the Windows Store apps can also be managed only by administrators. Right? If so, how do I do this?

Apps / Software :: Start Screen Apps Not Working Including Store

Dec 18, 2013

About three days ago, all new style apps stopped working. I click on the tile, get a deep blue screen, and nothing else. On the left side of the screen, I can see the app as if it is working (just the name of the app, not content), so I can close the window and get back to desktop. The same applies to the STORE app. The only tiles that work, are the links to desktop applications, which open correctly on the desktop. The fault also affects all windows system apps. For example if I search on the start screen for "windows update", I can access "Windows update" as it just opens a window on the desktop, but if I click on "Windows update settings" nothing happens. The same is true with all windows system apps that open in the new start screen system.

I've uninstalled two Microsoft updates that were installed over the past three days, no change. I uninstalled AVAST, no change, so I reinstalled it! I tried restoring the system, but found that I had only one restore, and that was corrupted. Very strange. Without access to many windows system apps, the computer is really limited. The desktop seems to be working OK. I can't refresh the PC, as firstly it is a system app that runs from the start screen, and secondly because I upgraded from win 8 to 8.1 online, this can't be done anyway, as I don't have a disc. I'm really trying to avoid reinstalling windows 8!

(Pavilion dv6, i7 processor, 6GB ram, originally win7, then I upgraded to win 8 and now 8.1. I've been running 8.1 for some months without problems, just occasionally on start-up from sleep, I get "error in non-cached memory" BSOD, and the system restarts.)

Apps / Software :: Windows Store Apps Doesn't Render Properly

Feb 20, 2014

I really like windows 8 and stuff, but ive been having problems with windows 7 so i decided to install windows 8.1 and never look back, but it appears that ive had an issue for the first time ever with windows 8.x

So I was trying to make this game called blacklight retribution run on windows 8 (it crashes for some reason)

And at some point i was installing some radio apps for the metro interface and trying to play the game at the same time (my PC is pretty weak -3.1ghz AMD processor, 4gb ram, 500gb hdd and a radeon 3300 hd integrated graphics card)

So my windows 8.1 (with the latest updates) crashed with the all-cool-new-bluescreen-of-death and after that my windows store app renders its content as if its broken, here's what it looks like:

I restarted windows numerous times, but the windows store app still appears to be "broken" but other apps seem to work as they should.

I am new to windows 8 and I couldn't find a way to restore windows to an earlier point, I know a very straightforward way - reinstall windows 8.1.

Apps / Software :: Show Windows Store Apps On Taskbar?

Sep 15, 2014

After installing all available updates of windows 8.1, my checkbox for "Show windows Store apps on taskbar" simply disappeared from the taskbar properties. Moreover, the on and off option from Settings -> Change PC settings -> PC and devices -> Corners and edges -> App switching also seems to be forever gone. In other words when I open an app I can't close it (Esc isn't working any more or X option) and I can't see it on the taskbar

Apps / Software :: Win 8.1 Will Not Complete Apps Install From MS Store

Jun 17, 2014

HP desktop, which is running Win 8.1.

Experiencing issues trying to download game apps from the Microsoft Store. He gets a message stating that the install can not be completed and the error code is 0x80070091.

I used Team Viewer to connect to his and attempted to do several different free games and all of them do the same thing.

I ran Malwarebytes and had some Mindspark pups which we eliminated. Did several of those scans and they have come back fine.

Checked his Windows Updates and there only 3 optional ones, Silverlight, bing bar and something else, can't remember which right now.

Ran the HP assistant to make sure that there were no HP updates that needed to be done.

Then, ran a sfc/scannow and the 1st run through came back with some corrupted stuff and, I guess, it fixed some stuff?

Ran that again earlier today and the log came back much shorter than the 1st run last night.

At this point, I don't know where to proceed from there... I am attaching the log ...

Apps / Software :: Win 8 Apps / Store Won't Connect To Internet

Jul 12, 2014

ASUS laptop running windows 8

I rarely use Win 8 apps, and run in desktop mode almost exclusively. Was having issues and was suggested I advance the OS to 8.1. That requires Store app. Store app gives a very generic "unable to connect" message with no options. I've done some research here and tried various things to no avail:

-refresh the store app
-a few cmd things
-turned off McAfee AND windows firewall

Some suggest doing some type of system restore which claims to wipe out all desktop system apps.That seems quite extreme for a program/connectivity issue.

I'm uploading the cmd details as graphics below.

Apps / Software :: How To Downgrade Windows Store Apps

Apr 25, 2014

when I bought my Windows 8 laptop, I liked the Windows photos app which was default to view photos.

The main feature I liked in that was a slideshow feature which shows collection of pics in a single frame similar to this.

Attachment 42179

(for better understanding I attached image of win 8.1 lock screen slideshow) Then I installed Windows 8.1 (i choose the option to keep old Windows settings, Apps) and I disabled auto update for store apps.

However after updating I found that photos app along with other system apps were updated to latest version and the feature which I loved was missing. When I press slideshow it just shows 1 image per frame.

how to downgrade my photos app to older version? Or how to install the old photos app in Windows 8.1 I have the files took from WindowsApps hidden folder.
