So im trying to restore the windows apps to their former glory. I "thought" i was there but i noticed Microsoft Pay.

2 of my pc's and my vm all have it installed.

My main pc does not, and when i view it on the store it says "microsoft pay is currently not available"

I have to imagine i removed it at some point. Would like to un-do that.

anyone have any idea if i can source it from elsewhere? Theres an option to redeem a code but i certainly dont have one of those.

perhaps i can copy it from another pc somehow? is that a thing with windows apps?

made it this far

Add-AppxPackage -register "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.Wallet_2.4.18324.0_neutral_~_8wekyb3d8bbwe\appxmanifest.xml" -DisableDevelopmentMode
unfortunately the result was

Add-AppxPackage : Cannot find path 'C:\ProgramFiles\WindowsApps\Microsoft.Wallet_2.4.18324.0_neutral_~_8wekyb3d8bbwe\appxmanifest.xml' because it does not exist.

now i got it.

jesus microsoft makes my head spin.

had to take ownerhsip of the windows app folder.

Turns out tehre were several in there. (no idea why the get-appx command returned the other path) but i had to use Microsoft.Wallet_2.4.18324.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe
