Solved Windows Store failed to sync machine licenses. 0x80070490

I too keep getting the "Windows Store failed to sync machine licenses. Result code 0x80070490" Event Log Message on one of the three machines I have W8.1 Update 1 installed on. I have done the Sync routine many times and I have "Disabled" the WSRefreshAppsListTask and yet I still get the Event Log Error every day when I boot the system. Seems like there must be something else going on that is screwed up on this system. Help would be appreciated!

I get that same Event ID 512 daily or maybe after a restart too. answers.microsoft.com forum has much discussion and apparently someone says Microsoft has it listed in the todo list and expect a fix soon. But.... does it matter If everything works fine ? If you look at the Tast that triggers the error, it says completed successfully.

Seems not right to disable the task just to hide an error.

You're right - I should stay out of the Event Log and be happy. It is good to know that MSFT is aware and will get it resolved someday.
