    Thank you sooo much, Brink. I've finally been able to solve this, and even been able to install Edge Canary! Just when I was about to give up after trying each and every solution I could find on the Internet and several reinstallations. Why, oh why didn't it occur to me to check the always reliable Tenforums before?

    So that is three people who have completed step 2 in this guide and wound up being forced to do a Windows reset to get their pc working again. It might be that deleting that key on certain Window installs is not recoverable.

    Is there a safer alternative? (Other than exporting the key beforehand).

    No disrespect to Brink.

    Hello Terafugia,

    Clearing and resetting the Microsoft Store cache shouldn't break anything since it automatically gets created fresh again afterwards.

    However, there's no guarantee that clearing and resetting the Microsoft Store cache will fix the issue you are having with the Microsoft Store app.

    Sometimes you may have to go further and either re-register or reset the Microsoft Store app. Resetting Windows 10 is the last extreme option if there's a lot more wrong.

    So I have a really deep problem with MSstore.

    Follow and tried everything in this thread short of the inplace upgrade.

    There are missing things.

    There is now service for MSstore

    There is no Appx package.

    wsreset.exe says I need an app to do that.

    What I need to find is the registry keys for MSstore to verify they are there.

    Code:
    PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Command "& {$manifest =  (Get-AppxPackage *WindowsStore*).InstallLocation + '\AppxManifest.xml' ;  Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest}"
    returns this

    Code:
    PowerShell : = : The term '=' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the 
    At line:1 char:1

        + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (= : The term '=...ram. Check the :String) [], RemoteException
        + FullyQualifiedErrorId : NativeCommandError
     
    spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.
    At line:1 char:5

    +     ~
        + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (=:String) [], CommandNotFoundException
        + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException

    any other options other than the inplace upgrade path?

    Hello mate,

    Just to verify, did you run the command in a command prompt and not in PowerShell?

    Most probably it was run from Powershell, instead of Command Prompt. Usual mistake, we all have made!

    no did it in powershell, but there was a similar command without the '=' to use in powershell that didnt work either

    from Admin CPromt

    Code:
    Add-AppxPackage : Cannot find path 'C:\AppxManifest.xml' because it does not exist.
    At line:1 char:91
    + ... est.xml' ;  Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manife ...

        + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (C:\AppxManifest.xml:String) [Add-AppxPackage], ItemNotFoundException
        + FullyQualifiedErrorId : PathNotFound,Microsoft.Windows.Appx.PackageManager.Commands.AddAppxPackageCommand

    If you run it from Command Prompt the command is:
    Code:
    PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Command "& {$manifest = (Get-AppxPackage *WindowsStore*).InstallLocation + '\AppxManifest.xml';  Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest}"

    If you run it from PowerShell the command should be:
    Code:
    $manifest = (Get-AppxPackage *WindowsStore*).InstallLocation + '\AppxManifest.xml';  Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest

    You don't need to find it. The command finds it with the
    $manifest = (Get-AppxPackage *WindowsStore*).InstallLocation + '\AppxManifest.xml' part of it

    If you want to know its exact location, type in Powershell the above part of the command and then type $manifest to get it shown
