    I think you need to first learn how to read more carefully, post #27 is from @Kari. Look at posts #27 and #29 again. I wrote post #29, not #27. Kari and Almighty1 are not the same.

    i run these commands and get responses that say it's not even installed on my machine. Got any other ideas aside from reinstalling Windows with a repair install.

    Arc, try this. Create a restore point first!

    Elevated PowerShell, you need first unrestricted script execution rights, command is:
    Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted
    Then re-register the Store:
    Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $Env:SystemRoot\WinStore\AppxManifest.XML
    Close the PowerShell, the store should work now. If it will not start, give this command in Command Prompt (not PowerShell!):
    start "" "ms-windows-store:"
    Come back to tell if we need to try something else or if this worked.

    Thanks for this steps. I completely uninstalled Windows store trough powershell and the first two commands did the trick. In the second command, I just have to change it to the one below as I can't find "C:\Windows\WinStore":

    Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register 'C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.WindowsStore_2015.25.15.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\AppxManifest.XML'

    Just a try but it worked.

    Looks as if the Store really is completely gone. If you search for Store with Cortana / Search, is it shown?
    Mine I shown but still none of the options shown work.

    Hello ExpertT, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Did you already try this below to see if it may help?

    Store - Re-register in Windows 10

    If so, then see if step 2 or 3 below may.

    as described here: Store - Re-register in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
    I've tried to run command
    PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Command "&  {$manifest = (Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.WindowsStore).InstallLocation +  '\AppxManifest.xml' ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register  $manifest}"
    from cmd with admin rights, but I've again got error with some package. ( MicrosoftOfficeHub)
    NOT a syntax error, but error with a package.

    Possible reason: May be I didn't add my Microsoft Account (online login) to Windows Store. Or may be Windows lost credentials, or maybe I've changed password for my microsoft account, but, finally, Windows Store was unable to communicate with server. I guess Microsoft has changed formats and some xml manifests become incorrect. Or something like that. But finally some packages got corrupted and PackageManager couldn't read them and crashed every time you try to install, reinstall Windows Store or (I suppose) run Windows Store or other Store applications (I was unable to run Calculator)

    1. you should definitely create restore point.
    2. Run cmd.exe (console) as Administrator
    3. Run PowerShell. (you don't need to run it as Administrator 'couse you don't need to be admin to uninstall an app with PackageManager)
    4. run
    PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Command "&  {$manifest = (Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.WindowsStore).InstallLocation +  '\AppxManifest.xml' ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register  $manifest}"
    with admin console
    5. If you don't encounter any error GOTO 8
    6. If you encounter an error with some package, uninstall it: run in PowerShell:
    Get-AppxPackage *PACKAGE_NAME_PART* | Remove-AppxPackage
    I had problems with package MicrosoftOfficeHub, so I hat to run
     Get-AppxPackage *MicrosoftOfficeHub* | Remove-AppxPackage
    7. GOTO 4. I had proplems with packages Microsoft.CommsPhone and MicrosoftSolitaireCollection and had to uninstall them as well.
     Get-AppxPackage *Microsoft.CommsPhone* | Remove-AppxPackage
     Get-AppxPackage *MicrosoftSolitaireCollection* | Remove-AppxPackage
    8. Now you have working Windows Store. But if you stop here windows will DELETE windows store and it's manifests soon. You will be unable to reinstall Windows Store and you will have to revert to a restore point you've created at step 1.

    9. Open Windows Store and try to install some app. (you can remove it later with PowerShell). Windows will ask you for your Microsoft Account. Provide it.

    10. It's OK, windows will not delete you Windows Store, but those idiots are just swiched you to emain login. remember that strong password you've typed on step 8? You will have to type it next type you login. So, if you don't want to type that STORNG password each tyme you login, do step 11.

    11. Goto Settings > Accounts > Your account and select "sign in with local account". now you will have to relogin.

    1. how to remove app with Power Shell and PackageManager
    2. how to reinstall uninstalled Windows Store (and any other uninstalled Windows Store app)

    Hello Bluscream, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    No need to reinstall your whole PC. You could do a repair install to fix your Store app without losing anything.
