    Can't update apps in store


    I recently installed the 90 day Windows RTM on my Samsung Slate. One thing I've noticed is that I can no longer update existing apps in the Windows Store, nor can I install new ones. The symptoms are that the updates start to download, but never finish. The status stays at pending.

    I also have another installation of the same RTM version running in VMWare, but I can update existing apps from the store just fine.

    Has anyone had this problem?

    Windows 8.1 Update Pro 64-Bit


    That may or may not have something to do with my problem. For me, it affects only one app, but I also have this "hanging while pending". In my thread, I have collected a few folders that contain data from the Windows Store - maybe clearing them will work for you (make a backup!).

Store: update notifications for uninstalled Apps? in Windows Updates & Activation
For the last month or so, Windows Store now reports available updates for applications I have uninstalled, like Sports and Finance. This did not happen in the past. Does the same happen for you, too? Is it a problem, or a devious and annoying way to trick us into reinstalling these Windows 8 apps?
Hi It is possible update for all users the Windows Store apps with a local account belonging to the Administrators group? Then, I believe that the management of updating of the Windows Store apps can also be managed only by administrators. Right? If so, how do I do this? Thanks Bye
