    Windows Store


    Hello guys,

    I love Windows 8 and also Windows 8.1.
    and also you know that the windows store is one of the best features that is useful.
    But unfortunately, Microsoft prohibited this windows store to my country and I can't use it.
    Is there a way to open and use windows store for prohibited countries?

    I will thank you to answer my question.

    You might try using a proxy in another country. Do you use an Iranian versie of Windows (does it even exist?). If you don't the store should work if you are not connection trough an Iranian IP (using a proxy).

    I also read somewhere about some apps beeing available from outside the store. However, I don't know how that works because I can use the store. You might want to check it further out though.

    Good luck with it!

    No, I don't use Iranian version of Windows. In fact, one of my friends bought it from Dubai.
    Could you please introduce websites to download Metro Apps from them instead of Windows Store?

    Thanks....

    Have a look here. I haven't worked through it, but I believe it may still, finally, take you back into the store

    Yep, they will just take you back to the Store in Windows.

    There's not a way around it, and discussing how to is against the forum rules. Thread closed.
