    Updates to Window 8 Apps and Installation of Apps


    Hi, My name is Roy, ive searched all the other forum threads in this topic and i couldn't find what i was looking for.

    Now, my problem is that my Windows 8 apps wont update and i cant install new apps. ive had this problem before, but i forgot how to solve it. I remember it had something to do with a folder not being in the C:/windows folder. I also remember it began with a "A" (Appinstaller?).

    i was wondering if anyone who CAN install their apps and update them could look into their C:/Windows folder and write down a list of folders that appear starting with the letter "A".

    Thanks in advanced!

    Hello Roy, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Usually when you have issues with installing or updated apps from the Store, you would need to clear the Store cache to fix it.
    If that doesn't help, then double check through the troubleshooting steps in the tutorial below to see if one may be the issue.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
