Hi all, I've been having problems with the Windows Store here for the last 3 days now and I keep getting the message Windows Store isn't available right now. Please try again later and after clicking try again a few times I get an error say We weren't able to connect to the Store. This might have happened because of a server problem or the network connection timed out. Please wait a few minutes and try again and then I get an error code 0x80004005 and then the first error comes back if anybody has any fixes for this please help me out and give me a solution I've tried every single solution provided by Microsoft and its still not working, all of my updates are installed

I thought this might have been specific to Windows RT, since went and installed the latest November rollup. Crap! Now I wish I had left my installation alone. I may not be able to get my apps back.

I can't believe there hasn't been a response on this. I've tried three other Windows RT and 8x forums, all with no response. I wonder if the Windows Store has now shut out Windows 8.1

Edit .....
Tried overnight. I am able to enter using a local account. I will post back if the Windows Store works on my Microsoft account.

I wonder if you have the AppX package on your system. If you go to C:\Users\[Your User Name]\AppData\Local\Micorosft\Packages, is there a folder that contains "wstore" there?

My issue is now that I can't install Bing Wikipedia Browser because it was removed from the store. Now I wish I didn't reset my Surface tablet (doh!). I'm wondering if anyone has the AppX package for this app. :(
