    Hello Jimbo,

    You might sync your app licenses to see if that may help.

    App - Sync License in Windows 8

    If still not, then try using the "Windows Store Apps Troubleshooter" below to see if it may.

    Hope this helps,

    It may your time not synced or correct then.

    See if this below may help. Afterwards, try turning the live tile on.

    1. Open an elevated command prompt.
    2. Type net start w32time and press Enter
    3. Type w32tm /resync and press Enter.

    This Computer did not resync because no time data is available.

    Check to make sure that you have the Windows Time service enabled and running, correct time and date set, time zone set, then sync with internet time.
