    Store App grayed out in Windows 10 upgrade from 8.1


    I upgraded on 7/29 and none of my Store Apps work. Store app is grayed out with a download arrow. I have run sfc /scannow and DISM restore health commands. There are no issues. I saw a command to fix the issue in another part of the forum, which I ran and completed but still no joy. That command:

    Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.WindowsStore_2015.8.3.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\AppxManifest.xml"

    I have gone though Brink's excellent Tutorials on re-registering Store and all apps. When reregistering Store, attachment "Error Store Reg" gives the details.

    When I try and re-register all apps, attachment "StoreAppReReg-error" shows the errors.

    When I run wsreset.exe, I get the error "ms-windows-store:PurgeCaches. The application cannot be started. Try reinstalling the application to fix the problem". I have been reluctant to do this in case I lose StoreApp altogether after removal and cannot install again.

    Would greatly appreciate any help. Have spent hours on this issue

    Same problem here. Windows Store opens splash screen then closes. Would love to fix this without resetting.

    Exactly same problem here.

    The error in the log is:
    Activation of the app Microsoft.WindowsStore_8wekyb3d8bbwe!App for the Windows.Protocol contract was blocked with error 0x80073CFC because its package is in state: 64.

    Hi guys,

    I have the same problem as you.
    I have tried all the suggestions I have found at different Win 10 forums.

    New windows update that was pushed, KB3093266, fixed my Windows Store problem. Though I probably will not use the Store, I still feel better that all Apps in Windows 10 are at least working now.

    Well, I got the KB3093266 as well yesterday. It did not fix the Store and Apps problem but fixed another problem I had with Start Menu.

    It magically started working last night, after nearly 3 weeks of crashing. It might have been the automatic update, not sure because I didn't actively choose to install an update.
