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 :: Skydrive - How To Use MS Account But Keep Account Local

May 10, 2014

I'm trying to use skydrive on two different computers, but when I made them both with the same MS account they synced stuff to each other, which I do not want.

I made a local account on one computer, but if I want to access Skydrive, it changes that account, back to the main account.

Is there a way to access the same Skydrive account through the app without making them the same user account?

Or is there a way to unsync different computers?

Windows 8.1 Store Access From Local Account

Oct 7, 2013

It appears that with Windows 8.1 RTM Microsoft wants you to concatenate all your account credentials under Windows into a Microsoft account, and that there's no way to access any of the Store or Microsoft Modern account driven software without doing so...

Is it possible to access the Store, and other Windows 8.1 account authorized features in the same manner as Windows 8 where you could have a local account and just login to these other services separately?

Windows Store Not Allow Sign In From Local Account

Dec 22, 2012

I have Windows 8 installed on a local account and wish to sign in from my Microsoft Account but only as & when required not all of the time. Shawn's tutorial "How to Sign in with a Different Microsoft Account to the Store in Windows 8" covers the procedure which should apply.

Attempting this offers only the "Sign In" button however once clicked the spinning circle appears for a fleeting second before the pointer is returned to the button once more, further attempts loopback in the same manner.

I can only surmise that this is happening because I have undertaken a customised install using Kari's excellent tutorial "How to Relocate User Profiles to another Partition or Disk in Windows 8" where the User Profile concerned is "D:User" and not "C:UsersUser" this being my longstanding preference from previous Windows installs from XP to 7.

I have tried the mklink /j route to link both C:UsersUser and D:UsersUser with D:User but with no success.

Is there a registry key containing the profile path which is used by the store sign in which requires modifying to my customised path of D:User?? .....or is something else amiss??

I switched from Win 7 to 8 and everything is perfect except the Store...

Like there wouldn't be a problem of using Microsoft account in Win 8 but every time I turn on my computer or even logout I have to type in stupid password!

Is there any way I can download apps from store without using Microsoft account ?

Or to bypass that stupid password for logging in ? But I more prefer to be not logged in into any type of account to use my pc.

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 :: 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 :: 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.

Apps / Software :: Cannot Get Into Store After Update To 8.1?

Oct 27, 2013

When I first installed Windows 8 I decided to run with a local account (ACC1) and a windows account (ACC2). I mostly used ACC1 and only used ACC2 to play some games which were not available for desktop. After a few months I converted ACC1 to a windows account using a different email address from ACC2. Everything worked fine and I thought no more about it until I did the update to 8.1 today. After sorting out the important issues I found that ACC1 cannot get into the store. Actually, I get in, but after a short time it just flips back to the start page. ACC2 works OK, but it doesn't have all of my desktop apps installed because I installed those for the ACC1 user only.

How to :-
1. Fix the store issue with ACC1.
2. Merge ACC1 and ACC2.
3. Get the desktop apps to ACC2.

Can't Update Apps From Store After 8.1 Upgrade

Sep 5, 2013

Just upgraded from Windows 8 Pro to Windows 8.1 Pro. No hacks or anything, legit key.

My problem is that the Store shows that the Music and Video apps both have updates but they both error out on install with 0x80073cf1 and 0x80246007 errors respectively.

Trying to fix it I have tried the following:sfc /scannow finds nothing wrongDISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth tells me "The restore operation completed successfully. The component store corruption was repaired. The operation completed successfully."And running Troubleshooting from the Control Panel on the Windows Update option quickly results in a "Windows Update components must be repaired" and "Fixed" with a friendly green checkmark. But the errors remain whenever I try again.

I bought a new Windows 8 laptop in the beginning of January and the apps always ran smoothly. Earlier today I noticed the Messenger app wasn't working so I uninstalled it. When I tried to re install the mail, calendar, people, messenger app it wouldn't install. I then tried to download the updates for my other installed apps and that didn't work either.

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.

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 :: 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 :: 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 :: 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.

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.)

I have installed and uninstalled many apps from the Windows Store. But I have realized that, after having uninstalled some of them I didn't like, if I go to "Your Applications" and select "Applications not installed in this computer" I still see them like in a kind of "History" (like in the Internet browsers)

How Can I Remove The List Of "not installed apps" in Store ?
