I did an install on one machine where it got rid of all my apps (fine by me) and am able to enjoy the Windows store tile along with several other tiles it automatically installed where updates are received automatically.

mail
social media
photos
finance
etc...
I then installed another version (Windows 8 Pro instead of Window 8) which kept all my apps. Unfortunately, I have been going crazy for the better part of a day trying to get the Windows store tile to work and connect to the store where I can download the apps I mentioned above.

You just click it (both are on desktops), and absolutely nothing happens.

I've tried everything all the searches online suggested and none work.

I have 4 GB of memory, a display which is much greater thanb 1024x768. I have an ATI Radeon graphics card with the most updated driver. This is the same exact card in tthe other machine...

What I need is a solid answer my it's not working and what I need to do to get it to work.

Any real help would be appreciated.

Answer:Microsoft Store tile not working

btw, I also set the UAC settings to their normal default settings and also didn't work.

This is a lot of "bull" because the pc that is able to get into the Windows Store has its setting turned off. I then did the same for the machine that is causing me the problems.

I just can't believe that their isn't a definitive answer out there what is causing this issue. The issue is all over the web, but with no distinct way of fixing it.

Hi,
So, my store live tile is not showing any live content, just the store icon.
I've checked the "show today's apps" in the live tile setting, and unchecked the "update over WiFi only", but the tile is not updating, just showing the store icon.
Is this related to folders (i have my store tile un a folder)?
Should I change any other setting?
Is it available in my country (India)?
Any suggestions, or similar problem, or PREFERABLY...any solution??
I have l720.
Thanks in adv :)

Answer:Store tile not updating

It has never worked for me either. I'm in Germany, and I'm pretty convinced it's just not available in my region. To be really sure, you could switch region to US.. Probably even phone language and keyboard, just like it's needed for Cortana to work. Too much hassle for me, for a feature I don't consider that important. :)

I tried following the instructions here on fixing Mail but cannot find Store on a green tile in order to re-install Mail. All I have is Sore on a grey tile and when I click on the link to download Mail from the instruction page I get a message to say it's already installed. Beginning to wish I never upgraded to Windows 10 now when I can't even get a basic function like Mail to work! Does anyone know how I can access Store via a green tile please?

Answer:Where is the STORE on the green tile?

I don't think you're going to have much luck. Windows 10's new Store (the one you're referring to as the grey tile) was replaced by the Windows 8.1 Store (with the green tile). You may have to refresh your PC if there is a problem, however there is a new cumulative update released by Microsoft today (2nd one for Windows 10 now) and fixes a problem linked to the Windows Store. I'd update your PC with all the latest updates first before attempting a refresh/reset.

I have a Y500 with windows 8.  I upgraded it to 8.1 when it launched last fall with no problems. I sent my laptop out to the Lenovo repair center for warranty repair to replace the motherboard.  I got it back and cannot see the windows 8.1 upgrade tile in the store.  I installed all the updates and used the wsreset.exe command as directed on the Microsoft website.I also cannot register windows,  I get and error message DNS name does not exist 0x8007232B.  I am not sure if that has anything to do with it.  I tried to manually register it by extracting the Windows 8 product key and using SLUI 03.  That still didn't work.  I also used some other methods of registering it using the command prompt as an administrator and still get the same error message.I called Lenovo tech support and the rep basically ignored my problem and passed me over to their premium service which I have to pay for.Is anyone able to off some more insight or solutions to this issue?Thanks!

Yes, I understand that to upgrade from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 you must go through the Store in the Modern UI/Metro environment, but, well into the first day of the Windows 8.1 upgrade release, the initial tile for that upgrade is still saying:
'Windows 8.1 Preview'.

That threatens implications that I'd rather not contemplate.

Is anyone else seeing '..Preview' on the Store tile?
Has anyone ignored the Preview reference and chosen the download link beneath it?

Answer:Store's Tile Still Says 'Windows 8.1 Preview' On Day One

I had this same preview tile this morning. I didn't intend to install it, expecting to get a download link so I could see what the link said. Well, I clicked it and the install started immediately - took a good while, but the install into full 8.1 went well.

Seems like a minor thing, but it's driving me up the pole. Any advice is welcome. On all of my PCs save one the store live tile shows at boot, as it should, and works fine. On one, however (was clean installed at W10 release), the tile usually launches with no live tile content. It won't get the content either, however long I leave it to sit, unless I run up the app and switch off live tile updates in the app settings, then exit the settings page, then return to the app settings page and re-enable tile updates. Then they update straight away.
I can then even reboot if I want and the live tile will (usually) still be showing. After a while though, it'll revert back to an inactive basic plain tile with no live content requiring the same process again.
All other live tiles work fine (weather tile needs a jab very occasionally but that's always been the case with Windows). I have tried the trouble shooters for both apps and store as advised for W8 (not much W10 guidance available), tried turning the background task on and off, tried removing and re-adding the tile and the tile's live on/off switch (which doesn't even temp solve the issue like the in-app setting does), no luck.
With any other app I'd just uninstall and reinstall it. Does anyone know how to fix the store tile? Or anything I can try? There's no way I'm going to reinstall the whole of Windows because I can't uninstall and reinstall one app, that's just not sensible, so what can be done? Any way to delete the app file... Read more

I only just noticed this but on our machines the store app tile is no longer live. Seems to be dead. Suspect it?s been like that for some time. Probably when they did their pointless update to change the name and icon. I tried turning live tile off and on again but it doesn?t have any affect. Apart from that it is fully functional but I am sure it used to be alive unless my memory is deceiving me. Anyone else noticing the same?

Hello guys, I need help with Store app which won't open. When I click on it, it appears with its logo, starts loading and then crash. As you can see from screenshots I took, tile went blank...not just for Store app but also for Groove Music app, Videos, Weather app and some others.. which acts the same way as Store. I tried clearing the cache, restarting my PC etc and it did not help at all. I want to note that these apps are working normally on my alternative Windows10 account with no problems at all. Also, region, date and time settings are normal, location is turned on..but it won't start on my main account anymore. I wanted to try out new apps like Viber for Windows 10 and TuneIn radio but I can do that only from my alternative account.
So, has anyone else faced same issues, anyone knows how to fix it? Any help is welcomed, thanks.

I have noticed over the past 4 weeks that my Windows Store App Live tile displays a number of updates for example 19 - when you go into the store and click on updates there may be only 14 or 15 updates.

I know changes have been made to Skype updates and this is no longer available to update via the app - have there been any other changes I should be aware of? This is not just on one device but 4 in the same household. None of the Live tiles display the number of updates actually being available?

Previously the live tile and actual updates available have always matched?

One thing that was badly missing in Windows 8 Start Screen was a clock. But now, this shortfall too has been overcomed. Dave Smits has developed a clock application for Windows 8 Start Screen ? Clock Tile. The application makes your start screen complete with a tile that displays time in a live tile and supports x86 and x64 ARM processors. It however, does not include any options for customization. Another feature that is seen as a shortfall is that the date and time appear on a small pprtion of the large tile.
Apart from this, the app is good and ready for download from the Windows Store. Remember, when launched for the first time, Clock Tile asks for your permission to run in the background.

Hello,
Ever since updating my computer from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 I have had trouble with the MSN Weather live tile, which has been blank (In Win 8.1 it worked fine). I remember that directly after updating to Win10, only the medium weather live tile was working for about half an hour and then just died.
The recent update from the stock Windows 10 build to the November update (10586)hasn't changed anything...
All the other apps' live tiles, except MSN weather's live tile are working. I have also tried installing other weather apps (like Weather Channel, Accuweather, Vieather etc..) and all their live tiles, except Weather Channel's, work fine.
I have tried all the solutions, that can be found on forums, like trying to resync the store licenses, running the app trouble shooter, trying the sfc/scannow, which hasn't detected any problems with the computer, uninstalling and reinstalling the weather app, unpinning and pinning again, turning live tile off and on again, changing from Fahrenheit to Celsius, restarting the PC etc etc... nothing worked.
When I open a new user account in my computer, the weather live tile in that account works fine. But not on my original admin account.
Has anyone figured out a solution or some way to discover the root of the problem? Might there be a way to let's say easily find some potential incompatible app, that could be blocking the weather live tile or something?
Thank you all for your help,
Jan

I'm personally going to try to make this simple, and yet cover all of my problems in a small thread.

I updated windows 8.1 pro with wmc from store.

I had NO problems, received no error messages, had no dc's, the power didn't shut off, the download didn't stop .. literally nothing went wrong. After update everything worked fine. All the apps are downloaded and were working fine.

But,

After 2/3 months since updated, I suddenly noticed that every live tile / folder / app / game / setting etc. which were working fine, now not working.
When I clicked on any tile, nothing happened. It just went to a blank green screen because my background color is green. It appears on the left upper corner as opened but doesn't run. When I click, I am send back to Start Screen or Desktop. Even Store and Windows Setting stopped working. So, naturally i started checking the web for answers, but couldn't find a solution to the exact problem i was having. I saw countless posts of people saying "Just uninstall / re-install the apps" but at first, I couldn't get my App store app to run. Again, it was just blank after several minutes of waiting.

OK. Not sure what is going on. My Yahoo Mail account would not allow me to set it up as get messages as they occur. I had to set it up as check every 15 minutes. My Gmail account did not have this issue. But still not getting the live tile to work. I saw 15 apps needed updating now, so did that (mail was one of them), but still no live tile working for mail.

I finally decided to install Yahoo Mail because I needed the live tile for that account. But that live tile was not working either. I had people send me emails, and nothing. They sent to Yahoo and to Hotmail. Then after about 4 hours, all of a sudden I started getting the live tiles updating. I have no idea why.

I removed Yahoo Mail, and still the live tile worked for mail. I waited until the next morning to verify it was all good and it is still working.

So marking as solved. Not sure what solved it, but there you go.

System restore fixed my problems,and now I am back to a almost fully functioning O.S,except the windows store is not able to download anything(just like before I ****ed up the O.S),I will probably not try to fix it on my own,but if anybody has any suggestions I would try the out,oh and the error code was and is the same(0x80070005)
*FIXED REGISTRY*





I think the problem is related to the registry keys in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main
being locked,I cant use regedit to change permissions(with admin too),regdelnull did not find the key so its not with embedded-null characters.

This key is preventing me from installing Skype and fixing Microsoft office,and some windows updates are failing because of it,saying I have no permissions.

This guy is having a similar problem Silverlight fails to install 1063 with root cause of 1402

Well after lots of permission tikering I have managed to gain ownership of the registry and now office is able to install which means it works,sadly windows store is STILL not working... means that it is something else...

Answer:Windows tile apps not working(deeper problem)

I already see how you invest another set of hours just to see that you cannot fix this blue screen (and remember that even if you could fix it, there is no guarantee that afterwards the store would be working).

I would try a new install - and I would ask myself, why my system is always failing. Arbitrarily running stuff from the command line could be part of the problem... ;-)

I recently reset my Lenovo laptop which is running Windows 8.1, using a recovery USB that I created when I initially bought it. After doing a full reset, I noticed that I can no longer rename tile groups on the start menu. I hold ctrl+mwheeldown to zoom out, and can still rearrange the tile groups, but if I right click on one, nothing happens. In the past, doing so would allow me to give the group a name (eg: naming a group of tiles for various IDEs as 'Development'). I know this shouldn't be the end of the world, but it's really bothersome considering I reset the PC to start fresh with a clean slate. I did not have this issue before I did the reset.
Any help getting this feature to work properly again would be greatly appreciated, and if you need anymore info just let me know what you need and how to acquire it for you and I'll do so asap!

I am new to Windows 8, and on the tile display, when I touch a tile, i.e. the weather tile, a black screen appears with Accuweather.com in the middle; this lasts about a second, then the tile window display reappears. I would expect that the Accuweather.com website would appear, but it never does. Other tiles act the same way, but some apps are executed when the tile for them is touched.
Is this a bug, or am I doing something wrong?

I had some problems with drivers so I did a recovery on my Windows 10 pc and the problems are fixed now. But now the windows 10 store and most stock applications like mail or calculator stopped working. In the Start Menu their tiles are empty and are called things like "@{Microsoft.WindowsStore_2015.7.22.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwems-resource--Microsoft.WindowsStore-Resources-StoreTitle}". The store and other apps worked perfectly before the recovery. Can I fix this?

Hi!

So, I recently bought a new gaming pc. The thing is, when they tried the pc at the store, everything worked well. It passed 3DMark with flying colours and it seemed ok.

Now the thing is, the pc reboots itself when I'm using it at home gaming or anything intensive. So far it lasted without rebooting for 29 min playing FFXIV, 27 for AC3 and more than 40 for LoL. I've run the Prime95 test (in all modes) and it rarely lasts more than 4-5 minutes before it restarts itself. When that happens, there's no BSOD, it just goes completely off, and restarts. No warning. Nada. Sometimes it restarts itself 3-4 (even 7 times) in a row. I ran some memtest to check my memory but they both were good.

I haven't overclocked anything. I brought it to the shop already like 3-4 times but they cannot reproduce the error because it won't restart itself there, I've been personally at the shop today gaming there and running tests and it never restarted. Right now, it's been there for 6 hours running Prime95 without crashes.

At the beginning I thought that maybe my power strip was broken or something, but then I tried the new pc in my bro's bedroom with his power strip and the same happened. And then I tried it with the PSU plugged directly into the wall and everything else to the power strip and the same happened.

I'm completely lost on what to do so any help will be welcomed.

I have looked into your issue about your HP Pavilion g6 Notebook and the error code is 0x80072EFD appearing as you are trying to use the Windows 10 App Store. Here is a link to Microsoft that indicates there is an update needed.  You could  try using the Windows Update Troubleshooting tool to fix any updates that have not come through for Windows 10.  Please restart the Notebook twice to make sure all update have been completed! Here is a document that shows how to update drivers that are not working correctly with Windows 10. If you are running a virus protection program, try to temporarily disable it.  If that does not help right click on the Windows Store app and uninstall it. Then reinstall it.I hope this helps.Thanks.

I have an iPOD probably like most people. Anyhow I am transferring bought CDs onto iPOD. Normally iTunes detects the name of artist, album and song on CD. But last week or so it has not.

Make sure your network settings are correct and your network connection is active, then try again.

I ran a network diagnostics on iTunes and what I noticed is that the DHCP from the DNS is not enabled. I don't know what DHCP stands for but I have do have a feeling that this is the problem. I asked a friend of mine who also has iTunes and he told me that his DHCP DNS is enabled. How can I enable this?

Answer:Windows Store not working

Karin, I got the same error when I was trying to download free apps from the store on my Lenovo running W 8.0.
I decided to update with Windows 8.1, hoping that would solve the problem.
After installing 8.1, the Store would revert back to the Start Screen after one second.
I posted the problem here, but I made no progress until I found the thread with the title:






Store - Re-register in Windows 8 and 8.1

After upgrading to Windows 8.1, the Store may not start at all.
1. Open a command prompt.

2. In the command prompt, copy and paste the command below, and press Enter. (see screenshots below)

Code:
powershell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $Env:SystemRoot\WinStore\AppxManifest.XML



This allowed me to visit the Windows Store.
It has been working for several days now, so it looks like it was my solution.
You may want to try the fix before installing W 8.1 like I did.
Good luck.
