    Win 8 x64 with media center


    I'm afraid it's just not an option for me; my data wouldn't fit on the secondary hard drive and I'm not willing to depart with it. I'll just keep using windows 8 without the apps (only reason I bought the upgrade in the first place...)

    Thanks for trying, anyway.

    Ok. You may want to keep your thread open. I know I don't have all the answers. Someone else may have a solution for you. Good luck to you.

    Well, my problem is still here but I've noticed that I can update my existing apps just fine, even though the Windows Store doesn't allow me to log in.

    Any ideas on how to get the sign-in assistant working are still welcome!

Solved microsoft account sign in in User Accounts and Family Safety
Just installed Windows 8 pro upgrade. I had previously set up Windows 7 so that I would not have to sign in. That carried over to windows 8 but I had to setup a Microsoft account and I am required to sign into that at startup. Any way to automate the sign in or have I missed a checkbox somewhere.
