Windows Store Failed To Sync Machine Licenses - 0x80070490
Jul 18, 2014
I too keep getting the "Windows Store failed to sync machine licenses. Result code 0x80070490" Event Log Message on one of the three machines I have Windows 8.1 Update 1 installed on. I have done the Sync routine many times and I have "Disabled" the WSRefreshAppsListTask and yet I still get the Event Log Error every day when I boot the system. Seems like there must be something else going on that is screwed up on this system.
I have (also according to Windows Control Panel > Installed Updates) successfully installed KB2919355 on 13th Apr 2014. So to me, the KB2919355 is in place (and various KB installations after that, too) <- I do get all the Windows System updates (including security updates) BUT not Windows Store application updates.
So the problem is the "Windows Store failed to sync machine licenses. Result code 0x80070490" which pops into Windows Event log on daily basis.
TEMPORARILY fix: running Windows update troubleshooter fixes the problem (it stops and restarts BITS and Cryptographic services) and after a while I get a notification to the Windows Store Tile that there are new updates (if any). BUT after rebooting Windows the problem (Windows Store failed to sync machine licenses. Result code 0x80070490) always re-appears in the Event logs.
Here is the report of successful Windows update troubleshooter.
1) running DISM does not work (see below)
2) Going to Store settings and "Sync licenses" does not work
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth -> [==========================100.0%==========================] The restore operation failed. Either the repair source was not found or the comp onent store cannot be repaired. Error: 0x800f081f DISM failed. No operation was performed. For more information, review the log file. The DISM log file can be found at C:WINDOWSLogsDISMdism.log
All my docs have suddenly been duplicated. The duplicate files have been renamed with the machine name (Peters_Laptop). I cannot open the original files and get a message "1 Interrupted Action" An unexpected message is keeping you from copying the file. Error code 0x80070490 Element not found.
This has applied to ALL of my documents.
I have tried to delete all the useless files and rename the changed versions back to the original names. But after a reboot, the duplicates are back!
I am running Win 8.1 on a Dell Inspiron Laptop. Is this related to SkyDrive?
Windows 8 does not sync IE 10 favorites (and maybe other stuff) between my two computers. Both have Win 8 Pro 64-bit using the same MS account. Both have all sync settings turned on. Is there something else I must do to enable syncing?
I recently purchased an HP notebook running windows 8. My previous machine ran Vista. I transferred my music to the HP and have purchased new music. However when I try to sync, my iPod does not pick up the newly purchased music. The iPod "says" it's syncing but the music isn't picked up. Is it a Windows 8 problem?
Alright so I have a PC with a licensed Windows 8.1 Pro, been logging in with Microsoft account for about 3-4 months now and I absolutely love it. I purchased a laptop 5 days ago, and decided to format the whole thing and do a fresh install (the way I like it ).
Of course I signed it with Microsoft account and everything was just lovely. My Metro apps came back, my theme synced etc.
The only problem I have is that my desktop background refuses to sync. I remember having "Synced theme" on my new laptop under My themes (Desktop right click -> Personalize) but I deleted that and now how to get it back
TL;DR Signed in with MS account on my PC and laptop and desktop background doesn't sync. I deleted "Synced theme" and how to restore it.
Whenever OneDrive tries to automatically sync its files (or manually too), there's a pop-up on the desktop saying: OneDrive Sync Engine Host - OneDrive Sync Engine Host has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Please close the program.
I have googled it a lot and tried the CMD command posted as a solution, but it didn't work unfortunately.
maybe fully reinstall OneDrive as it is a standard feature of Windows 8.1 Pro...
is there a way to completely disable the OneDrive Sync Engine process from starting up with windows? I can't find it in the startup menu. Sometimes when it loads it will lock up my computer for about ~5 mins until anything becomes responsive. I was able to grab a screen shot of the process loading in the notifications. I just would like to disable OneDrive 100% if possible (running Win 8.1, update 1) as I do not use that service for anything.
I am using mail app on windows 8.1. It was working fine in the morning. But few hours ago I noticed that it shows my drafts folder empty and the interface has also changed a bit.
I did not update anything at all. My automatic update setting is off. I have synced it a lot of times. It shows my emails from all other folders but not from drafts. And it is not like it can't do it. Until yesterday, I was being able to view the drafts seamlessly. It just happened now.
i have one laptop and htpc running windows 8.1 and can't figure out how the sync works. Yesterday, i set it all up and and today turned my htpc on to have the same apps and layout. But nothing changed, turned the both pcs on and off and it did change but the other way, htpc to laptop, so got a messy layout.
Deleted all the apps from the start screen and started again but now won't change in neither of them. Just changed the wallpaper many times and sometimes changes but other times it doesn't.
've always been a Mac user, and now I'm thinking of switching to a Sony Vaio laptop running Windows 8
I don't do a lot of heavy gaming but I do play Minecraft. I looked at the specs of that laptop, it was Core i5 processor at 1.8/2.7 GHz 4gb ram and nvidia GeForce graphics card dedicated with 2gb. Will these specs be enough to run Minecraft without any lag? Also, why did it say 1.8/2.7 GHz? Which one is it?
I've noticed sometimes when I first powerup my windows 8 machine, it turns on, but I get no display on my monitor (has happened with 2 monitors). I am using the latest beta ATI drivers for my card. The weird thing is, pressing delete i dont even get the bios to appear, just a black/dark monitor screen. I am wondering if repairing the bootloader could fix this? How to repair the bootloader? I won't loose any of my data, will I?
After turning off, turning on the computer a few times, I finally get display and can get into windows 8, but it's annoying.
I have a MS account in Win 8.1 which automatically logs me in.
Lately, I can only access my Hotmail and Skydrive through their respective Start Screen Apps. When I try to log on to either of them using my browser, I get an "Incorrect Password" message.
Although I didn't changed it, my password for Hotmail and Skydrive is not in sync with Win 8.1. So, is there any way for me to find out what my Win 8 password is so I can log in to my Hotmail and Skydrive accounts on the web?
I am tired of having a computer in my bedroom waking up sometimes multiple times in the morning hours--like approximately 3 or 4 A.M. Support people have tried to stop this operation but to no avail. It still is doing it although less frequently now. This morning at 3:14 A.M., it woke up automatically and then shut down a few minutes later.
In Event Viewer it said at 3:14 A.M.: The system time has changed to 2013-10-06T10:14:28.500000000Z from 2013-10-06T06:11:17.671868600Z. Change Reason: System time synchronized with the hardware clock. I attached a screen shot of the info in Event Viewer, for your reference.
Why does the computer have to do this at 3:14 A.M.? Can't this occur some other time like during the day when the computer is running?
I can't seem to get my profile to reliably sync to new devices or when I've tried clean installs on my main system. I have all settings checked to sync and the PCs are all trusted devices. Sometimes it will sync the desktop background and my profile picture, others it may sync some of my explorer settings. Sometimes it may not sync anything at all. My homegroup on any other devices also gets renamed to "winliveid_000" instead of the usual "email@example.com." I've yet to figure out why this happens as well. I've tried deleting the data and trying again, all with the same result.
This has honestly all been an issue ever since I've installed Windows 8 and I'm starting to dislike the profile sync altogether. If it cannot reliably sync my data and all of it, I don't understand it's usefulness. I've also run the account troubleshooting tool, which gives a cryptic message saying "The following settings are turning sync off: Personalization." It gives no further details that I can see or look into and all settings are on. I've taken a look at Windows 8.1 and it seems that you have no choice but to initially use your Microsoft account to sign in, which is troubling. If it cannot be fixed, I may have to delete my synced profile online every time I try to reinstall my main system.
I have three machines running Windows 8.1 Update 1 and for some reason one of the machines does not like OneDrive. When I first boot the system the OneDrive Cloud appears in the tray. However, as soon as I hover the mouse over it to see the sync status the Cloud Icon goes away and I think I get the SkyDive 1000 error in the Event Log. I don't know what I did to screw it up on this machine
Dropbox is so convenient that I recently bought 1 tb space. So I am trying to make use of its large space.
Here is my question. I use mainly "My Documents" folder (in Win 7 and 8 computers) for creating, updating and modifying files everyday. Then I MANUALLY sync the same My Documents folder with that in the Dropbox.
My question is whether there is a way to sync automatically between My Documents in my computer to that in Dropbox. If My Documents folder in Dropbox automatically sync with My Documents folder in my computer, it would be very convenient. Is that possible?
I've been having an issue with my Acer S7-391. I bought the Windows 8 machine in December, and the majority of the time when I start it up in the morning, it doesn't boot properly - it hangs on a black screen for ages. I then have to hit the off button and boot it back up again and, sometimes, it boots after having to go through a system repair. Also, sometimes it does boot properly from the get-go without having to jump through hoops - not often though.
Originally I thought it was an issue with me having upgraded to Windows 8.1 shortly after buying the laptop, but having rolled the machine back to Windows 8, the issue prevailed. Through trial and error, though, I've figured out when it does and when it doesn't boot properly (yeah, I'm slow). Basically, it never boots properly when I have a USB mouse/keyboard plugged in. I take them out, boot the machine, and can plug them in again almost immediately and everything works fine. But NEVER does it boot with these devices plugged in from the start.
Here's a photo of it anyway (below).
Any solution here - other than unplugging my USB peripherals on boot - t'
All of a sudden I have 4 Removable Drives on my windows 8 machine. I've tried removing these, but they return as soon as I restart.
I went into computer/disk management, right clicked each and uninstalled the driver, but no way. So I went to Device Manager and first disabled and then uninstalled each one of them, but still they exist immediately on restarting the system. They react to "eject" on right-click by stating
The disk drives as seen in Device Manager are:
Generic - Compact Flash USB Device Generic - MS/MS-Pro USB Device Generic - SD/MMC USB Device Generic - SM/xD-Picture USB Device
I have a new Windows 8.1 machine and I wish to encrypt the drive using Bitlocker. It gives me 4 options to save a recovery key
1. Save to your Microsoft account 2. Save to a USB flash drive 3. Save to a file 4. Print the recovery key
Option 1 isn't available as I'm logged on using a local account.
i. What is the difference between options 2 & 3? i.e. I could save to a file on a USB drive ii. Does option 2 mean the USB flash drive cannot then be used for other purposes? iii. Does option 2 also mean I could use a USB external hard drive, or does it have to be a flash drive? iv. Once the recovery key has been created, can the key then be copied to other locations or is it only going to work where Bitlocker puts the key? v. Just thinking about printing the recovery key - can this be used without a password to access the drive, how sensitive/important is the printed key?
I'm having strange issues where my computer just takes a long time to load things.
For example, I used to be able to run half a dozen programs (and four or five tray icons processes) just fine and everything would run smoothly. But now for some reason, running just two or three is causing huge performance issues. Microsoft Word 2013, Zune, Steam, CyberLink PowerDirector, Skype, Google Chrome, and all Adobe products.
You can check my system specs, but I recently wiped my hard drive and installed Windows 8 Pro fresh and I don't understand why this is happening now.
A contributing factor might be that I only have 235 GB left out of my 1 TB? But I don't feel like that should be doing it.....
