    I only have 1 account.

    I think there is a built in administrator account.
    or guest account.
    Haven't looked there for a long time.
    Maybe I should.....
    Yeah, you could create a new local account just to see if the Store would open or not, but you would need to ne signed in to the Store to be able to download and install any apps from the Store though.

    As a test, create a new local administrator account to see if it may work while signed in to it. The guest account will not be able to do anything in the store anyways.

    Ha !

    I bit the bullet & restored to factory settings & upgraded with my 8 pro pak & upgraded to 8.1 pro through the Store.
    I have been working on it for 10 hours now & still am not done.
    I'm sleepy.

    The Store & other Apps work now.

    This is really solved now.

    I'm still adding back programs & stuff.

    I backed up most things.

    Almost done.

    I might take a nap.

Still broken. FAX send will hang/redial. Didn't work in 8.1PV - may have functioned in 8. The problem is FXST30.dll. Replacing it with the Windows 7 copy resolves it. This may require taking ownership. Someone here with Microsoft's ear might pass that along to the higher echelon.

I have a 2 tb Network store on a 1 gig Ethernet, which worked fine on Windows 7. I ran the upgrade advisor this facility and software was not identified as a potential problem. However it does NOT WORK. It just says it is incompatible on Windows 8. The Novostore website is not helpful.
