    Windows App Store Not Opening

    For the last few days, I have been unable to get the Windows App Store, or any apps downloaded from the windows app store, to be able to open. It opens the initial window and then just closes and nothing occurs. This also occurs with the xbox app. Is anyone else experiencing this problem? How do I fix this? Thank you for your help!

    I have the exact same issue and have tried all the suggested steps in regards to reinstalling via powershell script and deleting Appdata cache folder. No method has worked.

    I can get to the App Store but nothing will download, and some apps do work (Facebook) while others don't (Mail).

    For those of you still experiencing this issue, if the powershell command fails due to missing folders/files/Sys32 then I have finally had success by "resetting" my PC to factory default. This sent me back to 8.1 and erased all of my files and programs but resolved the issue once I upgrade to Windows 10 again. It appears an update had removed some critical files and due to the reset, the files have been restored.
