    I was just about to replace system32 files from disk, even had them extracted to desktop per instructions on eightforums.com when i came across your solution.
    This worked like a charm. Thanx Medab1, you saved the day and made my customer very happy!
    I'm glad things worked out well.

    Windows 8.1


    Not really contributing anything here but had to register just to comment. The dism/online/ etc, is PURE GENIUS. Bought a Dell (8>8.1) desktop in September and bafflingly have been having system file corruption routinely; ran multiple sfc/scannow & chkdsk operations, etc, but perpetual problems nonetheless (a bit concerning for a Brand New System!). This solution is brilliant. Thank you sincerely. Great forum, great help. Happy Holidays, everone.

    win 8.1 pro 64 bit did get W10 but did clean install win 8


    Me too. Gads, a few weeks ago a moth hit my screen in a frenzy. (It's moth time here at 39.1608 N, 119.7539 W.) I put out a candle to distract them so I could watch net TV without having to get up and reset every few minutes - don't know how to disable the touch screen. With wax on it's wing it hit, then hit again so many times and so fast windows began to pop open and bells began to ring. I watched helplessly as somethings began to disappear and then were deleted without recovery. Meta something I think - it was so fast that it was out of my control. Next day ran sfc. Oops, errors! Again and again running sfc to no avail. Now thinking of resetting entire PC (2nd time), found YOU and THIS post! Sooo happy to be a member of Win8Forums just had to THANK you again. Vii

    if your Windows Store app on the Start screen does not open the Windows Store, chances are the "configuration data for this product is corrupt."
    I tried to fix the corruption of the Store App by running the App troubleshooter, and every suggestion and fix posted on every MS support webpage I could find. I even did one Refresh and then a Repair in Place of the installed OS with no luck on those either. After several days and a total of approximately 14-16 hours, I am about to come to a place where i decide I can live without the Store for another year.....
    A while back, folks use to be able to extract data and files from a MS install disk directly to the installed OS to fix corrupted files... Maybe someone here still remembers how..
    If you get access to the 'Store' please let me know!
