    Installing Metro Apps


    Every time I try and install any Metro app I get the error "something happened and this app couldn't be installed. I have read that some users had this problem because the time and date was wrong. mine is correct and was at the time of installation,

    The laptop is a Toshiba M750 laptop with touch screen @ 1280x800. I'm logging in with a Microsoft Account, Time zone and location is set to Melbourne Australia

    Any ideas would be appreciated

    You could try sfc /scannow with : SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8
    and also try a refresh :Refresh Windows 8

    Weird here as well. Downloaded some Metro applications from the Microsoft Store, said they installed, BUT yet I cannot locate them.
