    Store Problems?

    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...

    Does anyone know if there is any problems with the store ?

    Hello Mickey,

    You might see if clearing the Store cache may be able to help for app updates.

    Perfect! I went to Dos Prompt and typed in wsreset.exe and hit enter and presto cleared it right up. I was then able to get my 26 updates in 2-3 minutes. Thank You.

    I tried to hit the add to reputation button but it said something about spreading them around?

    You're most welcome Mickey. That's great news.

    That just means that you can't give rep to me often like that. No worries though. You getting it sorted is thanks enough.
