    Just to be sure, you opened the start menu, searched for Command Prompt then right clicked it and said to Run As Administrator?
    The title bar should say "Administrator: Command Prompt".
    Yes, but if it doesn't work for you, probably will not work for me.

    Same red error =(

    You are running an elevated Command Prompt- right?

    Try this

    Launch an elevated PowerShell (right click, run as administrator ...)
    then run the commands one at a time

    Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.WindowsStore

    this should return similar results to those below:
    Name : Microsoft.WindowsStore
    Publisher : CN=Microsoft Corporation, O=Microsoft Corporation, L=Redmond, S=Washington, C=US
    Architecture : X64
    ResourceId :
    Version : 2015.7.22.0
    PackageFullName : Microsoft.WindowsStore_2015.7.22.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe
    InstallLocation : C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.WindowsStore_2015.7.22.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe
    IsFramework : False
    PackageFamilyName : Microsoft.WindowsStore_8wekyb3d8bbwe
    PublisherId : 8wekyb3d8bbwe
    IsResourcePackage : False
    IsBundle : False
    IsDevelopmentMode : False
    Dependencies : {Microsoft.VCLibs.140.00_14.0.22929.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe,
    Microsoft.NET.Native.Runtime.1.0_1.0.22929.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe}

    The information for the next cmdlet comes from the InstallLocation attribute (highlighted above)

    Don't close PowerShell yet .....

    Grab only the value for that field (do not include the attribute part -> InstallLocation : ) and paste it into a text editor (notepad is fine)
    the add \AppxManifest.xml file to the string and place quotation marks on the string (due to the space in Program Files); ex:
    "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.WindowsStore_2015.7.22.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\AppxManifest.xml"


    Finally add the cmdlet and parameters before the string you just built
    Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register

    In the Powershell window the entire string you created in the steps above.
    Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.WindowsStore_2015.7.22.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\AppxManifest.xml"

    Sorry about the size - it's the only way I could make the entire string fit on one line.

    That command worked, but doesn't open my store app

    The only thing that worked for me is to use System Restore to the earliest created on 7/17/2015. Now just have to wade through all the updates since then and hope it doesn't get broken again, otherwise this computer will go back to where I got it, the recycle bin, a real shame as it worked perfectly with Vista and Win7 and Win8 [didn't have 8.1 on it].

    Last suggestion I have:

    Try the control Panel Trouble shooter:
    Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Troubleshooting
    Press view all and select
    Windows Store apps

    I'm not sure if this online trouble shooter works with Win10, but it is another thing you can try:

    Still have the problem, even after a reboot. I'm not sure what update broke this, but I think I'll have to do a System Restore back a couple of days.

    The only difference between my System Restore of 7/17/2015 and suggested updates since the restore are these:

    KB3074686 and KB3074678 Update for Windows 10 for x64-based Systems

    KB3074681, KB3074679, KB3074680 and KB3074674 Security Update for Windows 10 for x64-based Systems.
