    apps not installing


    Hye there,

    Two months ago I installed windows 8 release preview

    When I open the store and I click on an app and press install, I see a few dots passing by on top of my screen as if I need to wait a second. Then tey dissapear and nothing happens annymore. Nothing installs.

    Pre installed apps all work perfectly.

    If tried dissabeling the firewall, no other antivirus software is installed

    I've renamed a couple of folders using no capiltals like c:\windows\SoftwareDistribution

    And a few other tricks ive read here and ellsewhere.

    Nothing seems to make a differnce, sadly I don't even get an error response/code



    Any idea's are welcome


    Cheers
