    Can't install apps from windows store.

    Hi folks,

    Anyone else have this problem?
    I have tried installing a few apps from the windows store on windows 10, download ok and says installing but then get message "this is embarrassing we can't find app" and nothing, its not on my app list.

    The existing ones that were there on windows 8.1 that I upgraded windows 10 pro to seem to work ok.

    Any ideas?

    Changing my account to a local account fixed this. I had been logging into the computer with my Microsoft account, but going and switching to a local account fixed this constant issue for me.
