Hi,
I am running windows 0 in a VMware player connected to the Internet.
I want to download the office 2016 preview, which I have been told you have to download from the BETA store.
Whenever I go int this store I get a message saying 'Store needs to update, store will close and then you will be able to open it again'.
The store does close itself but then when I go to open it again I get the same screen again.
I cannot seem to get store to update (and I can't access the store without the update...)

If anyone could let me know how to fix this I would be very grateful.
Thanks,
Callum Corrigan

Windows 10 issues will get more and faster help at our sister site, the TenForums.com.

For the Store (Beta) and other modern app issues, check if the Store troubleshooter can help you: Why can't I sign in to the Windows Store? - Windows Help

Office 2016 Preview, the Office desktop suite and the successor of Office 2013 is not downloaded from the Store or Store (Beta) simply because from the Store you can only download and install Modern Windows apps, not traditional desktop applications. See this thread at the Ten Forums for correct download instructions: Office Technical Preview - Windows 10 Forums

From the Store (Beta) you can only find Microsoft's new Modern app previews for Word, PowerPoint and Excel. Although quite good and functioning well, these apps are only somewhat stripped down versions of full Word, PowerPoint and Excel included in Office desktop suite.
