Apps / Software :: Store Won't Open Also After Fixing With Cmd

Mar 13, 2014

I've got a problem of mass scale. My Windows 8.1 Store refuses to load. Whatever I do, it doesn't start up. I had to get to an app with compatibility problems and get to the store in that way, but also that doesn't work anymore.

Other than the one putting a big line in the cmd (one of the first & only real solution I could find).

Apps / Software :: Windows 8 Store Won't Open

Apr 9, 2013

! Obviously many users can NOT access the Windows Store, let beside no other 'App' starts, not 'Finance', not 'Weather', nothing. The best one can expect is to not break the system completely. Do not try any of this, it does not work. The problem lies much deeper and is not fixable by registry editing, dll-register, new user account, fonts,...

Apps / Software :: Windows 8.1 (with Last Update) Does Not Open Store?

Apr 9, 2014

I've got windows 8.1 with the yesterdays update but the problem comes before this update.

Wen I open the Windows Shop, it always on the green screen and does not advance. I've done the following steps:

1 - I did WSReset.exe as administrator but the store is always like this. If you close and re-open the store, I get the same green screen;

2 - I downloaded the tool Windows 8 App Troubleshooter which tells me that I have an outdated graphics driver. Is not true because I have installed the latest version.

3 - UAC is turned on but without success;

4 - I've turned my account as a local account and tried to open the shop but with the same result. I've reverted my account as linked to Microsoft.

5 - I created a new user account and with that account the store opens. I returned to my account and nothing.

6 - Finally I ran the SFC / SCANNOW and gave me this picture.

Apps / Software :: PC Settings And Windows Store Won't Open?

Jul 31, 2014

I just built a secondary new work computer. Unlike my main rig which I just do a fresh install of 8.1. On this one I put Win 7 then Win 8 pro upgrade, once that's done I upgrade to 8.1 through store. thing is once I upgrade to 8.1 I notice pc settings and store wont open, if I click on them they flash and just return to desktop.

I found this solution here:

All Modern apps fail to start after Windows 8.1 upgrade - Microsoft Community

But it only seems to work on admin account.

I noticed same thing is happening with regular user account and the above fix does not work, in fact when I try and set permissions to system in registry step it mentions I get "Unable to set new owner on packages, access is denied"

Apps / Software :: Acer Aspire V5 - Store Will Not Open (Crashes)

Feb 12, 2014

My Computer: Acer | Aspire V5 | Aspire V5-552G-X412 | Overview

As of a few days ago, none of the apps in the "windows" menu will open. My Store also will not boot. It opens, animates, and closes. I've tried many solutions, none of which have worked. *Note*: My resolution has not changed. It is still 1366x768.

Solutions I've tried:
1. Changing resolution: fail
2. Running "sfc /scannow" in CMD in admin mode. Result: stops at 53%, says it it unable to fix corrupted files
Also tried opening the .log file. Says I'm not an administrator, when I have set my profile to admin. (I am the only user)
3. Clean boot, attempted to "sfc /scannow": fail
4. Using Microsoft account and local account. (I used a local account originally and tried switching to an MS account. This did not fix it.)
5. System "Refresh": says it is unable to complete refresh after reboot.
6. UAC was not changed, although I tried playing with the settings. Did not work.
7. My Anti-Virus has not been modified in any way. No firewall should be affecting this.
8. This happens on any internet connection.

I really do not want to resort to restoring the computer to factory settings.

Apps / Software :: 8.1 Update - Windows Store And All Other Applications Won't Open

Oct 19, 2013

Attempted to update to 8.1 yesterday and the store just won't open. Every time I click on the Store tile it doesn't get past the green introductory screen before just disappearing (crashing).. Have restarted several times and used the link-through on the Windows 8.1 site. Also, I have since discovered that all apps won't open either (such as news and sports).

Apps / Software :: Splash Screen Displayed But Fail To Open (including Store)

Aug 12, 2014

I have a Lenovo G505s AMD A8 Laptop, fairly new to Windows 8 as this is my first platform running it. Not had the system long, but generally finding it ok except for this one problem thats decided to arise:

All apps, including the Windows Store fail to launch when clicked. They display a splash screen but no loading symbol, the splash screen hangs for about a minute and then the whole app shuts off again. This started with the calculator from what I can see, but now it seems to affect all of them. I've tried multiple theories from several forums and sites but nothing has made a difference.

If possible I don't want to have to refresh or reinstall Windows 8 as I have a fair amount of software I've installed and don't want to have to go through installation all over again.

Apps / Software :: User Account Cannot Open Windows Store App In Windows 8.1?

Mar 21, 2014

I have 3 user accounts on my windows 8.1 laptop; 2 administrator types and 1 standard local account. While logged in using one of the admin user accounts or the local account, I can access the store app. However, when i log in using the other administrator account and try to access the store app, i just get the spinning circle and nothing happens. Is there something wrong with how one user account is set up that is causing the problem. Do I have to delete the user account and try re-establishing it.

Windows 8 Store Won't Open

Nov 27, 2012

Towards the end of last week certain apps stopped opening such as mail,news,calendar and store. I reinstalled windows 8 and all the apps that weren't working started working apart from store and apps bought from the store. When I click on the app store it just shows the loading screen then closes and doesn't provide any errors. I've tried several things already such as removing avast,checked screen resolution, running windows app store troubleshooter and I have installed all windows updates. I'm unable to do a refresh as when I try to it says some files are missing, your copy will provide these files and I put the disk in and it just says invalid media.

Not Able To Open Store And PC Settings - HP Sleekbook

Dec 9, 2012

Yesterday my HP sleekbook arrived (cheaper amd version) with windows 8. Everything works fine except that I can't open the store or pc settings. When I click on the store tile, or click on the more settings button, the fullscreen (green for store, blue for settings) icon fills the screen en then dissapears.

I have tried the sfc / scannow option but this did not work after 3 trials. Reset or Refresh also isn't an option because I can't enter the settings and thus won't be able to perform these actions.

Open Windows Store With Blank Screen?

Sep 15, 2014

I'm in the middle of a struggle with blank screen issue, possibly corrupted exlorer.exe file (won't run). Wanted to try update from 8-8.1 but the Windows Store won't show up with the blank screen issue. Any thoughts on resolutions? I've done several malware, adware scans and antivirus scans. Everything comes back clear. Also, tried adding a new user acct, but get an error message and can't add. Thought the update might replace the needed files. SFC scan return non-fixable errors.

Setup Installation :: Asus Laptop Will Not Open Microsoft Store

Apr 21, 2014

Recently I upgraded my wife's Dell All In One from Windows 8 to 8.1 by going to Microsoft Store and selecting the upgrade panel for 8.1. It went smoothly even if slowly. I then tried doing the same thing for my Asus Q200E Laptop.

When I went to the store all I saw were apps for ASUS. How can I get to the real Microsoft Store to get the 8.1 upgrade?

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.

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
