I got my new tablet today and am having no issues with anything except the Store. It takes forever to open but it shows that I have 26 apps needing updates. I clicked on a random app and clicked on install and it just shows pending on my screen. I'm surfing the web, downloading windows updates, etc...
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
I have a system I built with Windows 8.0 64-bit. I have a legitimate product key, 8.0 discs and an 8.1 with update disc from 53564-murphy78-s-Windows-8-1-Server-2012r2-with-Update-MSDN-iso-files
I do NOT want to update through the Windows Store.
I was under the assumption that I would run the update disc, enter my product key and it would update my 8.0 to 8.1 automatically. Pop in my legit product key and it said it was for "another edition of windows" and to "try another key."
How can I update through the 8.1 with update disc I just burned?
i have recently installed windows 8.1 on a new extended partition while keeping my windows 8 in previous partition. do i need to install the store windows 8.1 update ? as shown in another thread this looks like it has the update
I've tried for several days after several reboots, etc. I am running a Dell OEM version of Windows 8 on an Optiplex. It just sits at "Downloading" and when I hover over it it says "0% complete". Apparently I can't use the ISO because I need a key which the OEM version does not have. how I can get this thing to update?
I've been having problems with my laptop recently. I actually care less when it comes to updates since it's automatic, but I noticed that it refuses to install any drivers (which means I cannot access any USB drives or install programs that requites drivers) or updates, after searching for solutions on the internet, I found out in a website that said kb2919355 causes component store corruption that is irreparable, which is the update that I have already installed. I've tried repairing with DISM but it all fails, probably because the update causes the component store to corrupt when StartComponentCleanup is triggered.
I want this to be fixed but my restore point is already deleted since it's probably too old (which is weird that I'm having this problem since the update has been installed for months). I don't want to reinstall my Windows either, so what now?
I have a fairly new PC running Windows 8 and I can't seem to upgrade to Windows 8.1--There are a bunch of issues-
1. Can't connect to the Windows Store--tried everything here save the refresh, which I do NOT want to do. 2. Downloaded the 8.1 ISO and burned it to a disc--get the error message that 8.1 could not be installed--0x101-0x20017 error--tried installing with a clean boot, turned off antivirus suite, etc 3.sfc /scannow does not work.
So currently I'd like to forget about the store for the moment and continue updating from the downloaded ISO. I really do not wish to restore the computer and I have a lot of software I'd need to reinstall and this would take a long time.
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).
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.
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. or 2. Merge ACC1 and ACC2. or 3. Get the desktop apps to ACC2.
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 have refreshed my windows 8, and now trying to install 8.1 I have installed all the recommended updates, but when i open the store an click on the 'Update to Windows 8.1 for free' , nothing happens. the icons gets the click, since it animates, but i don't see any options to download or do anything ? is there an alternative way to install 8.1 over 8.0
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.
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?
