    Lost Windows Store


    I feel like I have tried everything under the sun that I have found online to reinstall Windows Store with no success. WAAAYYYY to much to even try to find again and list. I tried creating a new user account and even that didn't have the Store. Hopefully someone in their great wisdom will know of a solution.

    Presumably you've tried the commands here:
    Reinstall and Re-register Apps in Windows 10 | Windows 10 Tutorials

    (you can search it for 'store').

    If all else fails, try an in-place upgrade repair install which keeps all progs and data.

    What is your Windows build? If 1709 or earlier, you could upgrade to 1803, assuming that works for you- some have had problems.
    (Windows key + R, winver).

    How did you lose it?

    Example:

    - note the recommendation we continually make to use disk imaging routinely.

    Have you tried to reset Windows Store? Hit Win + R and type in "wsreset.exe". that may solve your problem.

    Not that I'm aware of. Being Windows Store is the portal to all other apps, it would be like chopping your legs off. Did you try the wsreset in post #3?

    If all attempts at fixes fail, you can always try an Inplace Repair of Windows. Cures a lot of ills.

    wsreset.exe doesn't work, reinstalling and register apps partially works but most fail says is missing C:\AppXManifest.xml, I'm on 1803 build so dunno if the inplace upgrade repair will work.

    Build number has no bearing on it. You can always do an In-place Repair by downloading the correct ISO for your build, as outlined in the tutorial, and let it run. You will not lose any apps/progs or data.

    BTW I think this is the script that killed my store.

    $manifest = (Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.WindowsStore).InstallLocation + '\AppxManifest.xml' ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest
