Store - Re-register in Windows 8 and 8.1

  1. #20


    Brink,

    thanks for all your help and advice. With a machine that has been in daily use by three users for over 18 months starting 'clean' just isn't an option - I can live without the store if necessary, all the really good stuff takes place on the desktop. Anyway, if I was going to take that route I would have absolutely nothing to lose if I tried my idea first. If it went chest up I could re-install windows at that point. Thanks for sticking with me - much appreciated. If I do find an answer I'll be sure to let you know.

    Hi Brink!

    I just join here. So first anything, congrats for the great work you're doing here mate!
    I'd like to know if there's any way I can run the Store as SuperAdmin?
    Sorry if this isn't the right place for this question. Thanks in advance!

    Samir.

    Hello Samir, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    I'm afraid not since the Store requires that you be signed in with a Microsoft account.

    Thank you so much for answer!
    But I configured the auto login, then I do login directly in my Microsoft account.
    So don't know why I still can't acess the Store?
    Sorry if I'm annoying with this or if I'm talking something wrong.
    I don't know so much about sys config.

    No worries Samir.

    If you are signing in to Windows 8.1 with a Microsoft account, then you should be able to open the Store.

    Did you already try the tutorial on the first page to see if it may help?

    If so, then see if the troubleshooting steps below may be able to help.

    Hi again Brink! Sorry for the late reply bro! Just to let you know that I did all said in first page and the last instructions you gave me. But didn't work. I even reinstalled my W8 tomorrow to see if this can solve it but still nothing.
    I would like to ask you, if I create a new user and install the apps I want, than when I remove this user I still will have acess to this apps? Thank you so much for your attention mate! Take care!

    Hey Samir,

    You'll have to reinstall all modern apps in the new account. If you don't already have shortcuts for desktop apps, you'll just need to create new shortcuts for them instead of reinstalling them.

    I'd recommend to switch your broken MS account to a local account, create a new Microsoft account on the PC with the same email address, then set it up how you like. This will minimize how much you may have to set and reinstall since most of it will be synced.

    In this link said this: "You will not be able to use any modern apps that use a Microsoft service that require you to be signed in to a Microsoft account." Could I acess the Store and the modern apps this way? Thanks again!

    Hi Brink, I said that i would keep you updated on my problem with the store not loading so here it is. I eventually decided that, rather than risking a catastrophic crash, I would leave it alone and live without access to the store (all the REAL work takes place on the desktop anyway, right?). Every so often I waould try the store just for the joy of watching those dots chase each other eternally. Then, last night, the store suddenly loaded perfectly! I can only assume that as part of one of their myriad updates microsoft coincidentally replaced the corrupt file that was causing the problem. Thought you might like to know! Cheers, Bob

    That's great news Bob. I'm happy to hear it's working properly again.
