    Deleted stuff in Systemapps folder.. Can't reinstall Windows Store.


    So yeah, I kinda deleted windows store form system apps folder, and now I can't seem to reinstall it, I also can't seem to update windows 10 either, would removing windows store have caused this?

    If you have a system image backup, restore it. And don't do that..........

    No backup, clean install.

    Really? there is no way you can use like a troubleshooter from MS to put those back in? I really don't wanna have to reinstall.

    Also if it helps this is the error I get when trying to check for updates: 0x800704cf

    A repair install might fix it: Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade Windows 10 Installation Upgrade Tutorials

    If not, a system restore or clean install as f14tomcat suggested.

    Restore your backup. Or get the ISO for your Windows Home version and do an in-place repair. That would keep your data and progs.


    Sorry, Kari..... we were posting at the same time.

    As far as that error code.....

    Something you did or deleted in the system folder has caused the shared network location to be zapped.

    Error 0x800704cf the network location cannot be reached

    not good......................

    Well I still got the USB i used to initially instal windows 10, but for some reason, its updating now, maybe it was just being stuborne or something? I personally don't use the windows store at all, I just thought one of those apps in system apps might be why it was having issues updating. with that error. Thanks for the help guys, if this happens again i'll do what you suggested.

    Good! When it's all up and running right and cleaned up, make a full system image backup:

    It could save you down the road. You'll get the same advice from any member here.
