    2 things you can try:

    1. Make a new account and see if that works (didn't for me).

    2. If that doesn't work you need to copy the Store and it's pre-req's to C:\Program Files\WindowsApps from a working Windows system and then install them again. This did work for me.

    Steps to do this are (if you don't have another PC around)

    • 1. Install Windows 10 to a VM
    • 2. Run Windows update on the VM.
    • 3. Copy the following files from a place that works (the VM) to your C drive:
      • a. Microsoft.WindowsStore*
      • b. It's pre-req's (Microsoft.Net.* and Microsoft.VCLIBS.*)
    • 4. Install it again with powershell Add-AppxPackage -register "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\<PackageFullName>" –DisableDevelopmentMode. (where <PackageFullName> is something like Microsoft.WindowsStore_2015.925.10.0.....etc)
      It will tell you if you forgot a pre-req - if so just copy the missing one and try again (they are listed in the xml anyway)..

    Hi halasz !

    So it turns out that all I had to do is just giving full access to ALL APPLICATIONS PACKAGE for the WindowsApps folder and everything in it, and now Windows Store, Weather is working again.

    For the error message when I click on Google account, I had to do the same for the "Packages" folder and everything in it. It's located in C:\Users\YourUser\AppData

    Now everything is up & running !

    Thank you all for your time !

    Hi all,
    It seems like I have a similar problem. I've tried playing with the clock time, but it's not working. I've tried doing what you suggested in the tasks scheduler but it does not work either. Maybe I have the same accessibility problem? But I don't know how to fix it.
    Many thanks!
