Windows 10: MS Store & Apps fail to launch.

  1.    10 Dec 2017 #1

    MS Store & Apps fail to launch.

    Did an update last night and can't locate the step by step solution I found months ago.

    Ms store and the apps within open for a second then disappear. No Error notifications anywhere.

    I have tried the Powershell and SFC routes with no success. I know Powershell is the answer but there's something I must be doing wrong because I get errors every step of the way.

    Wsreset.exe ; ms-windows-store:PurgeCaches

    The remote procedure call failed.

    I do not wish to system restore, format, nor reset. I know I did not have to last time around.

    Your code fails outright for me too. Try the same answer as here to repair the Store: Cannot find or launch the Store after Fall update
    Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers | ForEach {Add-AppXPackage -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml" -DisableDevelopmentMode}
    It's normal to get some errors in the console output, just retry your apps again after the cmdlet finishes. If that doesn't fix, then create a new user account and see if the issue follows. If not, you are probably dealing profile corruption.
