    Windows Store will not install apps


    I've tried installing multiple apps and The Weather Channel app will go through the motions of installing, but won't actually install (I get the install button again after it says it installed).

    For the rest of the apps that I tried installing, I get error 0x8E5E0408.

    Any help fixing this problem is greatly appreciated.

    Thank You,

    Store has many dependencies, have you disabled any services or anything in Privacy settings?
    By the way Windows Store service is set to Manual by default and does not run, try to start it.

    Right click Start - Run and enter - net start WSService - Enter.

    Tried it with no luck

    Now it's not even downloading, it says it's downloading but it is stuck at 0.0MB of X.XMB on all apps I try downloading.

    By the way, what is your location, Store works best if it is set to United States only.

    I am in the United States. I just double checked and everything in Settings and Control Panel is set to the United States.

    I've been getting the same error since installing Windows 10 a couple of days ago. I've waiting patiently in the event it is a server issue, but no luck. Sometimes the error ends in 07 sometimes in 08.

    I couldn't figure out how to fix it, so I just backed everything up and did a clean install. It is working now.
