Windows Store and all other Windows apps won't open

  1. #11


    I copied and pasted it into the run cmd line. Did you try copying it from my post?

    powershell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $Env:SystemRoot\WinStore\AppxManifest.xml

    Sorry. I feel your pain - it took me a lot of searching on the internet to find that solution. I had already tried a number of other suggestions that didn't work.

    Good luck!

    Im still on 8. I tried to update last week and got the same message I've gotten over the past 3 weeks. I get this message.

    We weren't able to connect to the store. This might have happened because of a server problem or network connection timed out. Please wait a few minutes and try again.

    Like I said 3 weeks of this. No solution that I have tried works. The one above takes me to a blank blue screen. I'd really like to find a solution as well.

    So I have been reading, and attempting multiple solution to the same problem
    Has there been any success or new tips other than recovery (which I am unable to do since I cant click to open recovery)
    By the way, I am also experiencing other problems such as not being able to pin programs to task bar, and everyime I ho to restart or shut down,I have an update waiting for me.
