    PowerShell commands: errors and failure to register the Store


    I have spent many hours for the last two days trying to get the Store and several apps re-registered and working. On other forums which I have been directed to, such as MS TechNet, much of the advice and links I have been given either generate various errors, or just fail to work. So I have tried here: How to Re-register the Store in Windows 10.
    Again I get errors, commands not recognised and so on.

    What is going on? I have activated the Windows Firewall, I have entered everything using Copy & Paste, so what else must I do to carry out this fairly common procedure?

    Get-AppXPackage | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register

    "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Command "& {$manifest = (Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.WindowsStore).InstallLocation + '\AppxManifest.xml' ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest}"

    PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Command & {$manifest = (Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.WindowsStore).InstallLocation + \AppxManifest.xml ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest}

    Some of many links I have been given and which have failed

    Hello clayto, :)

    You might see if resetting the apps may help.

    No, reset just produced the message "we cannot reset this app"

    If all else fails, you could do a repair install to fix them without losing anything.

    Looks like the command syntax is not right. The path switch is a positional switch. If it is not the first argument you must prefix the appxmanifest.xml path with -Path

    In addition clayto, how does using the .bat file from below to run the command work for you?

    Hi

    I tried the .bat file at the same time as I tried the Power Shell command from this forum, with the same negative result.

    Some of the PowerShell attempts produced a lot of red print which I guess is indicating errors (?), but I did get some which seemed to finish correctly all in green ---- but still did not restore anything.

    My puzzlement is added to by the fact that this is a new computer with newly installed OS and Anniversary plus I have run sfc and Dism, so I am not expecting any accumulated corruption.

    In that case, a repair install may be the best option.
