Apps / Software :: Windows 8.1 Store Search Redirecting To Start

Feb 13, 2014

I seem to be having this issue return every reboot.

When ever I type something (anything) into the store search, it instantly redirects to my start screen.

/sfc scannow fixes the issue but literally it returns that same day for whatever reason & I have tried the troubleshooter, re-registering the store app & done this sfc scan about 3 times now and just getting bored of it.. Having to use the browser version of the store just sucks..

My file search is not finding files which I know are there, including files that I find and then try a search to see if windows eight can also find them. I have tried all the solutions' offered by googling 'windows 8 not finding file' such as the troubleshooter . One suggestion was to change the location of where to search to 'everywhere' but this option is greyed out.

Apps / Software :: Windows 8.1 Apps Won't Start - Tile Option Shows Status Nicely

Oct 28, 2013

I have a Windows 8.1 and a problem with my apps. When I try to open weather, finance and other apps, They show their start-up screen and in a couple of seconds they're gone - I am brought to my metro screen... Tried to reinstall the apps, but hadn't got any luck...

But wait, it get interesting: Even though the weather app crashes, I have a live tile option on for that app, and it shows me weather nicely.

Here are some of the errors from Event viewer:

Failure to load the application settings for package Microsoft.BingMaps_8wekyb3d8bbwe. Error Code: 32

Failure to load the application settings for package microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps_8wekyb3d8bbwe. Error Code: 32

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 :: 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.)

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.

Uninstalled Apps Appear In Search

Jul 15, 2014

I have uninstalled "HP Coolsense" from my PC and can't find a reference to it anywhere. But it still shows up in my windows search (the one that shows up from the right) . . with an icon and everything (unfortunately I can't snip that but I could the error that comes up, which is attached).

Is there a way to refresh this? I can't right-click on the entry either--it doesn't do anything.

It isn't:
in the list of installed programs
in the registry (I searched for "coolsense" FWIW).
In the "all program" section of the metro menu

I was thinking this was a Windows Search/Indexing issue--I normally leave that off, but I turned it off and it rebuilt my index and it's still there.
