Windows 10: Windows Store and Apps not working after fall Creators update Solved

    Windows Store and Apps not working after fall Creators update


    Greetings all, new to the forum. I got the fall creators update and it looked like everything installed correctly. It installed so well (Or so I thought) that I deleted my windows.old folder on my C: drive. Now the kicker is, I noticed that the Windows Store and some of the Apps no longer work. I believe this was before I deleted the windows.old folder.

    Any thoughts on how to fix? I have tried using PowerShell as Admin to reinstall the Store and the apps and that has not worked even after giving the windowsapps folder Admin rights.

    Creating a guest account does not give me access to the Store either.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi and Welcome to TenForums!

    Could you provide us with more information on what you experience when opening the Windows 10 Store or any of its applications?

    What were the results of following the PowerShell scripts?

    I ended up getting things figured out yesterday. I used this as my resource but was hung up on my username since I had a space in the folder name and it was giving me fits since I forgot out to make power shell read the space. Once I got that figured out, I was able to reinstall Windows Store and get that working. Only lingering issues is Skype, Xbox App, and Notification Action Center not opening up. Progress has been made though! :)

    Glad to hear!

    For the other applications, you can use the guide I linked to reinstall those too. It fixes most problems with Windows apps.
