    Windows store will not open


    I am having issues with the windows store in windows 10. It will not open and when it did a few days ago it would not download anything. I have a Compaq computer and downloaded windows 10 on a computer running windows 7 home edition. Thanks

    Windows Store is (as far as I recall) only working in Windows 8 or above.
    And Only if automatic updates are activated.

    Good luck

    I am running windows 10 now and have windows update set to update automatically. I still can't get windows store to work. Do you have any other ideas I might try? I appreciate your help big time.

    Did you receive and install, last cumulative update (KB3081438) ? It's aid to fix Store problems.

    Hello dunnthat50, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    You might also see if re-registering the Store may help. In addition, make sure that you have the correct time zone, and data and time set.

    Yes, I did receive the cumulative update and did download and install it but.....I'm still having the problem, can't open the store at all, it just blinks.
