How to fix Windows Store on #Windows10

18 10 2015

The family PC failed to load the Windows 10 Store so having done a bit of digging on the internet I found I had to combined multiple fixes to get it working. Hopefully this will help you if you have the same problem.

  1. Ensure the Date and Time are correct on your device
  2. Right Click the Windows icon
  3. Click Command Prompt (Admin)
    RightClickStartButton
  4. Either type or copy and paste the following text into the window

    PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Command “& {$manifest = (Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.WindowsStore).InstallLocation + ‘AppxManifest.xml’ ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest}”

  5. Press Return
  6. Once complete (it may take a few minutes) if the window does not close, close it
  7. You now need to reset / clear the Windows Store cache. Open the Command Prompt (Admin) again and this time type:

    wsreset.exe

  8. Press Return
  9. Again wait few minutes for it to complete and close the window
  10. Restart your PC
  11. Now try to load the Windows Store.
