I have Windows 8.0 and I keep getting this message while trying to update the video app from the Windows Store. Is there any way to solve this problem and download the update to this app?...or Is there another app I can use to replace the video app?
Ever since this new update with 8.1 I can't install any new apps... I first noticed when my Mail app stopped working and froze my computer. So I uninstalled the app and when I tried to install it back I get the screenshot below.. So I tried Yahoo Mail, some games, some other apps.. Nothing will work. Mail finally said it installed, but it's not on my computer and the app store says it's already installed. I have my own custom built computer, if you need the specs look under the specs drop-down, it's all there...
In January I bought a Dell laptop with Windows 8. I recently upgraded to 8.1. Now most app tiles have an x on the right hand side of them, and I cannot access PC settings, the app store, and most other apps.
I have Windows 8 Pro installed as an upgrade from Windows 7.
I cannot log into the Windows Store. I cannot even get to the point where I can log in.
When I click on the Store tile nothing happens.
I had some difficulty earlier and it was suggested that I change my login from a local account to a Windows account. I've done that, but it did not solve the problem of accessing the store. I have about 200 applications on this machine, many of which were migrated during the upgrade. There is no way I'm rebuilding this computer.
i was trying to access the store and it said "store can't be accessed with the built-in administator" and to sign in with another user... i am the only one that uses this laptop and my question was how can i access it or is there a way to bypass it using the built-in administator?
Recently I have downloaded a few things that require the .NET framework 3.5. When I go to download/ install this, it moves realy fast, then stops and says: "Windows couldn't complete the requested changes" with the error code '0x800F081F'. I have been trying to do this for weeks now, and keep getting this error.
Some things to note: I downloaded Windows 8 (Pro, 64) My computer had a problem and I had to refresh it.
So recently the Windows Store has stopped working for me (Win 8.1 Pro). By not working, I mean that whenever I try to install an app, I get the following error message:
Your purchase couldn't be completed. Something happened and your purchase can't be completed. Error code: 0x80240017.
Furthermore, apps are not updating automatically, and a manual check reveals no updates available. That being said, I know for a fact that my Facebook and OneNote apps are out of date, since they have both changed on my other computer. As a test, I uninstalled the OneNote app, and now I can't re-install it.
So far I've tried: -The apps troubleshooter. -The windows update troubleshooter. -WSReset.exe -SFC.exe (no violations found)
Each time I attempt to install or update through the app store I receive error message 0x80072ee4 or 080073cff. I tried:
1. Performing a clean boot. (Disabling all non-microsoft services and startup items) 2. Using the SFC /SCANNOW option to verify the integrity of windows files. 3. Clearing C:/Users/Myusername/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows Store and C:/Users/Myusername/AppData/Local/Package to clean the cache files. 4. Clearing C:/Windows/SoftwareDistribution and restarting the Windows Update service. 5. Verifying that all windows services are running. 6. Disabling NIS 2013 7. Running troubleshooter
Nothing works. Don't tell me to run the windows restore function.
1. I don't consider that to be a genuine solution. (What if the same thing happens again?) 2. I don't plan on reinstalling all 50 non-windows app store applications.
I recently installed Windows 8.1 from scratch. After installing Office 2013, I'm getting this error when launching Word: "Word could not create the work file. Check the temp environment variable." If I try to create a new spreadsheet in Excel, I get this error: "Microsoft Excel cannot open or save any more documents because there is not enough available memory or disk space." Memory and disk space are plentiful and definitely not the problem here.
Also, I can't save or open files downloaded with Internet Explorer, which I believe is related (explained below).
I tried running winword.exe /r and re-installing Office, but the problem remains.
I've verified that HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerUser Shell Folders is set to %USERPROFILE%AppDataLocalMicrosoftWindowsINetCache in the Registry.
Research seems to indicate that the Temporary Internet Files location in Internet Explorer (!) is the likely cause of the problem. Internet Explorer shows the Current location field of Temporary Internet Folders is blank.
I've tried changing/setting the Temporary Internet Files folder to both C:UsersProfileNameAppDataLocalMicrosoftWindowsINetCache and C:UsersProfileNameAppDataLocalMicrosoftWindowsTemporary Internet Files, but I get this error: "Windows is unable to gather information about the location you have chosen. Please select another, or verify that you have access rights to the location." I'm running an Administrator account.
If I try to open either of those folders in Explorer, I get this error: "C:UsersProfileNameAppDataLocalMicrosoftWindowsINetCache is not accessible. Access is denied."
I've tried Taking Ownership of both folders. I've tried removing the Read-Only flag from both folders. I've tried editing the security permissions and adding my specific profile name (Administrators is already there). I still can't access those folders.
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?
I have bought lenovo g50-70 just 20days back, it came with inbuilt windows 8.1, they did not give any recoverable disks with it rather they said to take back up of the OS into a usb stick but I forgot to take the backup and tried to partition the hard disk using EASEUS Partition manager then I got this error "0XC0000225"
lately Iv'e been having trouble booting my windows 7 and decided that it's time to upgrade, I bought a copy ofr windows 8 64-bit from microsoft and burned it onto a disk using the windows 7 usb/dvd downloader. I was doing all this from a 32-bit and thus applied the bootsect.exe as needed. When i boot from the disk, everything runs smoothly. I insert the required code and select custom install.
At this point, i select the partitiion and proceed. as the installation proceeeds, it does not apear if the first phase of installation does anything, even after 5 minutes it stays at 0%. after it finaly switches to the next part, I wait again for the next phase, but it only throws up a message "windows cannot install required files. make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation. error code 0x8007048F"
After multiple attempts I decided to reinstall windows 7, but now I get the same error.
In Win Mail I keep getting this error code every time I try to send in receive on just one of my mail accounts. It is a .rr. account. I can send and receive, but I keeps filling my inbox with the same emails over and over. Almost like the emails haven't "cleared the server" and the server keeps sending me the same emails.
I'm a new user to Windows 8 and am having some problems. First, everytime I try to open the store it tells me I'm not connected to the internet, but I am. I've tried running the troubleshooter, but it does nothing. Additionally, I tried logging into Mail, but all I see is a three-tone white screen that has zero information on it. And yes I had an Outlook account before Windows 8. Last, I receive warnings about certificates with many websites I visit, including a few run by Microsoft. If I'm not mistaken, all of this is caused by McAfee controlling my firewall, and I seem unable to disable it and regain control of my new computer.
I have Windows 8.1 PRO x64bit SK (Slovakian Language Interface) + (Update 1) and Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-I9300 Android Ver. 4.3 Jelly Bean.
My problem is: Windows doesn't see my smartphone when I connect the USB cable to the phone and the computer. I dont have installed Samsung KIES , because i trying to install KIES SW yesterday, but I was wrong and kies phone absolutely not seen and not recognized.
Trying to update drivers SAMSUNG Electronics Co., Ltd. - Other hardware - SAMSUNG Mobile MTP Device and SAMSUNG Electronics Co., Ltd. - Other hardware - SAMSUNG Mobile USB Composite Device via device manager and nothing to do , i got error message this device driver was not recognized.
You'll need to use the recovery tools on your installation media. If you don't have any installation media (like a disc or USB device), contact your system administrator or PC manufacture.
Press Enter to try again Press F8 for Startup Settings Press Esc for UEFI Firmware settings
When I press Enter OR F8 screen just flashes but nothing happens and I also tried to re-install windows 8, installation was successful but windows could not load but appeared that couldn't attempt the repairs.
I have a pc that which it's cpu is 64 bit base and in the past i installed windows xp x64.now i want to install windows 8.1. At first I tried to install windows 8.1 X64 but after installation it cannot boot and the error is :
After that i installed window 8.1 X32 and it works fine ,but I want to know why i cannot install x64 .i am trying to installing and troubleshooting of that on other pc that is exactly like mine. I cheked the cpu with core info and the result is :
Coreinfo v3.21 - Dump information on system CPU and memory topology Copyright (C) 2008-2013 Mark Russinovich Sysinternals - Windows Sysinternals: Documentation, downloads and additional resources
Intel(R) Xeon(TM) CPU 3.20GHz x86 Family 15 Model 4 Stepping 10, Genuine Intel
The Windows App Store will not open. It spends a while thinking about it, then eventually times out. I would like to update to 8.1, but I think this is evidence of a bigger issue.
I think the real problem in my proxy settings in IE. The LAN settings have the Use Proxy Server permanently checked. No matter what I try, it wont uncheck. I have tried selecting the automatically detect settings box and putting in a dummy config. I ran Malware sweeps, ran virus sweeps, I removed any IE Add-ons. Reset IE. But it still wont let me uncheck that box..
It looks like there is a manual override within the Registry.
I am trying to download the windows 8.1 on a windows 8.0 Toshiba S855D-S5120Laptop. Laptop specs 2.3 APU A10 Quad Core, 700 Giga HDD, 8 Giga RAM, and graphic ATI 2 giga memory 1200 x 800 screen . The OS is the first edition of windows 8.0 and I had widows preview 8.1 on it downloaded from the windows store. When I download the windows 8.1 from the store, I get this error code 80240031 ( I looked up the error coded and it mean invalid file) at 50% file download. I have used the windows restore function to restore the laptop to windows 8.0 and still the windows update does not work. I have tried resetting setting to default factory settings and same thing happens with the download. I have also bought the window pro 8.1 pack and the same thing with the windows 8.1 it stops at 50% and same error code comes up. I have also done the WSReset.exe and no improvement. I have all of windows updates and still nothing I do is working.
Windows 8 Backup has been working fine for 12 months to an external Seagate USB hard drive.I'm now getting a "device not ready" message with error code 0x80070015 and the backup fails within 30 secs of starting. I've checked the drive for errors and there are no problems. I can read /write files to the external drive. There is ample spare space on the external drive to store the backup file. How to investigate and solve this problem.
I have been using Windows 8 Pro for about five months and running the backup utility for about four months with no major issues. I have used it to create a system image and scheduled to back up my data files weekly.
For the past two weeks I have been getting an error message "error code 0x80780049" along with a message that my files did not backup.
My backup is via esata to an external drive and as mentioned above this was working fine (I even tried a restore of a couple of files to prove it) but now it will not complete the backup. I even deleted the entire backup and started again from scratch but backup fails at about 50% completion. I have checked with windows defender and no viruses exist.
I have been trying to change my language all day but I cant seem to execute the command "dism /Online /Add-Package /PackagePath:C:lp.cab" in my command prompt. I get the above error. I have downloaded the language pack and put it in my root C drive and renamed it ip.cab
I'm having trouble with my HP laptop. I've had this happen before and I had to completely reset my laptop because of it.
Basically I went to log in this morning, it said my profile couldn't be found and signed me out. I then tried again to log in and the Start menu has been flickering continuously and I can't select anything, it has also 'lost' all of my stuff so it looks like a temporary profile..
I have tried googling for an answer and cannot find anything that works, when I try to 'refresh' my laptop via going to safe mode it comes up with the error code: 80070490. I've tried to do a 'clean boot' in safe mode but that won't work properly..
I have tried to start up my PC recently and I get the message that my boot system has failed due to the fact it's missing the file "BCD".
I have contacted the microsoft company to report this issue, no support without my product code, or a disc/USB with the windows 8 system on it.
I have none of these and yet my issue still remains. My PC has worked perfectly the day before I shut it down. I'm trying very hard to restore my system but all I can find of the ways to restore it is by clicking control panel, etc...
I cannot access my laptop's desktop all I get is this error message and options to enter the setup utilities, firmware and boot options.
In all I'm asking for is, is there a way to restore my system from any of these options or is this another toss away laptop because windows 8 has failed to find this missing file?
I cannot get a replacement because I do not have the key with me that was used to install the operating system. This is all very frustrating and not to mention my job relies on this computer so it's putting everything to risk with my situation right now.
I purchased a new laptop last week: Lenovo G500.it has Windows 8 pre-installed.at present i am still using the pre-installed McAfee Internet security programme for my AV;i have successfully done all updates(which are set to automatic)
However-despite 5 attempts to free upgrade to 8.1 i am still getting the Error Code 0x80072ee2 message and installation fails. on checking this out i am finding 'fixes' but these require installation of 'repair tool' type applications(only operable if bought etc).
