    I had the same problem, but a restore point fixed it.

    Darn Microsoft for this waste of time! Problem still outstanding. Wasted literally a day of my weekend on this.
    Well, I know where I'll get my apps from then, and it won't be their store.

    Martienne,

    If you have gone through all the listed troubleshooting items in the tutorial below and nothing has helped, then you may have a bigger issue than you think and may need to either refresh or reset Windows to sort this.

    Not a chance that I'll do that. Everything else is running fine and the build is stable.
    Rubbish of MS to have applications that are so messed up with the rest of the OS that it's impossible to do a clean re-install of the app, but needing to reset the whole darn machine to fix an issue with one app out of hundreds.

    Alternatively, if they know it's a problem (and they should - it's all over the internet) they should build an automatic troubleshooter for it, that methodically goes through all known reasons for it not working, and patch where the fault is present.

    On the positive side, it means I won't be wasting any money in their store and will have to resort to other means of getting my software. So much for trying to be legit.
