Windows 8 and 8.1 Forums

Windows 8.1 (with last update) does not open the store.

    W8 ISO won't repair 8.1 so far as I know. Different kernel versions.

    Really don't know what to advise here other than running this if not mentioned already.

    Windows Store Apps Troubleshooter - Fix Apps in Windows 8

    Did you run DISM and scannow as caperjack advised in Administration mode?

    Hello again.

    Already run that troubleshooter.

    Got message that got old driver for the graphic card but this is not true because got the latest driver.

    Run all of those commands as administrator.

    Had already stumble with that post and did the instructions but with no luck.

    One again, thanks for your effort.

    When I first updated to 8.1 I remember running the app troubleshooter for an app that ended up being a different reason why it would not run. I did get the same message about video driver probably due to older onboard graphics, but all runs well.

    Perhaps try to use an older driver? New doesn't necessarily mean better.

    BTW, did the Store app ever work? If so, did you install anything then it didn't work?

    Hi there

    Windows 8.1 update 1 -- no probs - runs fine from taskbar - although can't say the whole store concept interests me at all. However thought I'd just test it.
