Windows 8 Microsoft Store Atlanta

Question: Windows 8 Microsoft Store Atlanta

Was at the Microsoft Store today and they had a Windows 8 preview on a Samsung tablet. Amazing is the last word I would use. It was incredible. No way this translates well for a desktop, but it certainly works well on the tablet. Not to say it won't be nice, just not the same great experience as on the tablet. Not to mention while I was there, one of the store reps greeted the customers to a demonstration, which I thought was pretty good marketing. Just thought I'd share.

Preferred Solution: Windows 8 Microsoft Store Atlanta

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Windows 8 Microsoft Store Atlanta

Maybe I'll stop by my MS store and see if they have one there.

Well I use groove music to play my offline music but it lacks an equalizer and lyrics support so I was wondering If there is anybody who can suggest 5 great looking and feature rich free offline music players in the store or conventional music players if the interface is modern.

Windows 9 will reportedly have new activation methods that will tie the OS more closely with a specific PC

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) will unveil Windows 9 this fall, claims notorious Russian leaker WZor, who has a pretty good track record. In a Russian language post on Ru-Board, the leaker said that the upcoming update to Windows 8 will be the last major overhaul of the existing OS. Microsoft is expected to launch the Windows 8 Update 2 in August.

Windows 9 to have new activation methods

WZor claimed that Microsoft will back the launch of Windows 9 with heavy advertising blitzkrieg and a new distribution method. The new activation methods will tie a copy of Windows 9 more closely with a specific PC. It will require the user to log in to Microsoft Store, and users won’t be given an activation key. Talking about Windows 8, WZor said that there will be new updates after the Update 2 due next month. But no new features will be added to it.

Motivation behind the new activation method is “problems in China.” The world’s most populous country recently banned Windows 8. Notably, a couple of weeks ago, WZor claimed that Microsoft may announce Windows 9 at its Worldwide Partner Conference, which begins July 13 in Washington D.C. That claim was missing in the latest report, but WZor reassured us that the new OS will be launched this fall. However, he only talked about the announcement, without revealing whether it will be a Developer... Read more

Answer:Microsoft to Force Microsoft Store Account to Activate Windows 9

Not sure how logging into the store ties the OS more specifically to a computer. Doesn't seem right at all. However, if it is only logging onto the Microsoft Store to activate, and not forcing a Microsoft account to use the computer, I can see that being okay. As long as the local account continues to be an option, things will be fine. If I'm forced to use a Microsoft account to use my computer... I'll stay on 8.1. And then maybe move to Linux.

Transformation of UI is already being done in 8.1 Update 1. No surprise that it would be further enhanced.

Launch of 9 wouldn't put an end to 8. And let's face it, Microsoft never lost its dominance on the desktop market. There is nothing for them to re-establish here. The only thing they need to establish is a stronger presence in the mobile market.

If someone really wants the high end $2179 version of the Lenovo Helix, and lives near a physical Microsoft Store, you might stop by and check the price. While it is on sale for $1799 on the web site, it was marked at either $1399 or $1499 in the Scottsdale store. Sorry, I didn't pay too much attention, hence the statement it was one of those two prices. It, however, was certainly not a typo since all three demos had the same sales tag and they were definitely all the high end model.

Answer:Microsoft should allow Local accouts access to Microsoft/Windows Store for local accunts

You can already selectively sign into the apps like the store, groove, film and music etc.
I use a local account and i can download apps + games as i have only signed into the store.
When signing into a Windows System App such as Groove or Store, choose to sign-in into that app only - it is the option written in semi grey text.

Posting this here as both a question and FYI for anyone that may run into this in the future. Last November, I purchased Windows 10 Pro (full retail) from the Microsoft Store as a digital download. I found it strange that they did not send me a key, so no problem I'll just use Produkey to extract it and store it somewhere safe if I ever have to do a re-install.

Well fast forward to yesterday. I recently built a new system (specs in sig), and to make a long story short I went through LITERAL HELL with Microsoft to get this re-activated. The key I extracted from the previous install was blocked due to the hardware changes. I think.. oh ok, no problem.. I'll just activate by phone.... WRONG. It still failed. I ended up calling Microsoft support, got transferred 4 times, and finally got to a nice young lady that remoted into my machine and fixed the issue for me and got the system activated.

So upon further research.. Microsoft has changed the way they do the licensing a bit for Windows 10. I have what I believe is called a "digital entitlement" which is basically locked to the hardware it was installed on. At first they told me I would have to buy another copy of Windows 10 and I was furious and demanded a supervisor, at which point they realized I had bought a legitimate copy and proceeded with getting it activated. This may be old news for some, but posting my experience and what I uncovered anyhow.

So here's my question.. is the Produkey method ... Read more

Answer:Windows 10 Microsoft Store purchase - where's the key?

The product key is likely a generic key because as you said the licensing is done via digital entitlement. It's very similar to how product keys on OEM activated computers are basically generic, place-holder keys.

The nice part about digital entitlement is that you can reinstall without typing in a key, you just skip they key and if the system was already activated the new install will activate as well. The bad part, as you encountered, is that the store purchase, just like the free Windows 10 upgrades, you don't actually get a key if you want to move it (if you're even legally able to).

Regarding your issue, when you bought the 10 license originally did you see a EULA that mentioned transferring to a new computer?

I just tried to find some EULA information for the version of 10 purchased from their store and I cannot find any. I really don't know what the restriction is for transferring.

Hi,

The Microsoft Store on my laptop (Dell Inspiron 14 / Windows 10 version 1607) does not work. A screen capture is included in this post. The issue started a few weeks ago, before the last few updates. I have attempted several fixes that I have found on the Internet, all with no success. I have done the clear and reset fix - i.e. wsreset.exe. I have done several power shell command fixes with no success. The last thing I did was a system file system check - i.e. sfc /scannow and everything was fine. The issue occurs even on a newly created user. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Answer:Microsoft Store is broken in Windows 10 and I can't fix it

Hi, you can (apparently- I've not tried it) remove store from current user or all users, but this is NOT RECOMMENDED
See:
Apps - Uninstall in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
(To remove Store app from current account only - NOT RECOMMENDED)
Get-AppxPackage *windowsstore* | Remove-AppxPackage

(To remove Store app from all current accounts - NOT RECOMMENDED)

Naturally you're welcome to try and see how far you get, but I suspect you will end up doing a (relatively painless) in place upgrade install: I've seen a number of people struggling with apparently confined defects (myself included) for which one might think there should be an easy fix, and waste a considerable amount of time doing so.

Note that typically used Powershell commands from build 10586 break things rather than fix them now. Frustrating.

Is there a way I can maybe do this on the network level by blocking ports?

I am a windows insider. I have been complaining about their "modern apps" failures for 6 months now. Most people tried to shut me up by saying they were test releases. But as we got closer and closer, I escalated more and more including Satya Nadella and Gabe Aul. They seemed to come out with bandaid fixes but never addressed the root cause. While the store is likely to stabilize over time, you can look forward to problems with other modern apps like "People", "Microsoft Money (Finance)", and other apps that are the ones generally supporting live tiles. Mail and calendar have not been resistant to this problem. While I suspect that data in your users/appdata folder is getting corrupted, windows folks in Redmond have been keeping mum about this issue. So sorry for your experience with Windows 10. I can tell you that classic apps seems to be pretty rock solid. In my opinion, only when Microsoft starts debugging with tracing and a sniffer on their network do they have a chance of resolving this.

I need help finding the folder for the games I downloaded from the Microsoft Store in Windows 10. It gets annoying finding games through the search tool and having them pinned to my taskbar would also be inconvenient. I would rather they were in a folder. Does anyone know how to get them all into one folder? I've tried..

Answer:How to find games I've downloaded from Microsoft Store (Windows 10)

If they are xbox app games they are listed and can be launched via the xbox app.

For a list of all your downloaded app games, click the store app, click your account photo on the upper right of your screen and click "my library", all your game downloads will be there, you can then click on a game and then click open to play it.

First, I am not sure whether this is the correct discussion, sorry if it is not.
The problem: Two days ago I bought the app Oxford Hachette French Dictionary from the Microsoft Store using their web page. I have confirmation that the payment has gone through and that I am the "owner".
I attempted to download the app, clicking on the button on the web page, whence Store opened. The app appears to have downloaded and Install starts, but then there is an error Code: 0x87AF000B. I have done this several times just in case.
In the "elevated" cmd prompt, I have entered
net stop wuauserv | move "c:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution" "c:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution.old" | net start wuauserv
then rebooted the computer. This made no difference to downloading the purchased app so I reversed what I had done. [ | is standing for carriage return or enter]
I ran WSReset.exe. The result was "ms-windows:store:PurgeCaches | Package could not be registered."
I'm scared to go further in case I make the situation worse.
Please would someone advise how to make MS Store downloads work.

Hello, I do own a Microsoft Lumia 550 from the 30th of December '15 and I didn't have a problem with it since the last days, when I wanted to download from the Windows Store the app called "CSR Racing". It downloads until the end, it stays there 5 minutes and after that it shows up an error code. I did install a lot of other apps from the Store but it seems this one is the only one that doesn't want to install and to be ready to go. Can somebody help me with my problem?
P.S: The phone itself came with Windows 10 installed and I did do the phone update(s) and did install all app updates, I even did a factory reset to see if that solves the problem, but no luck there :(

Microsoft officials say the latest Windows 10 cumulative update fixes problems some users were having with Windows Store. What else is in it? We have no idea.
 
The newest cumulative update is KB3081438. The Microsoft Support page says nothing about the specific features and fixes that are new to this update beyond "This update includes improvements to enhance the functionality of Windows 10."

Answer:Microsoft's third Windows 10 cumulative update said to fix Store issues

"This update includes improvements to enhance the functionality"
Any update with a vague description like that should be considered suspicious. If I were offered an update worded like that for my windows 8.1 machine I would definitely refuse it, if they won't say what it is for it is either not important or not pleasant. Remember that this is the sort of language which was the wording used for the KB page of kb3035583 when it was first released (it's page has been updated since to give a more accurate description of what it does, but when that update first came out it's page was all vague like that).

Hi All,

I need help finding the folder for the games I downloaded from the Microsoft Store in Windows 10. It gets annoying finding games through the search tool and having them pinned to my taskbar would also be inconvenient. I would rather they were in a folder. Does anyone know how to get them all into one folder? I've tried..

Answer:How to find games I've downloaded from Microsoft Store (Windows 10)

If they are xbox app games they are listed and can be launched via the xbox app.

For a list of all your downloaded app games, click the store app, click your account photo on the upper right of your screen and click "my library", all your game downloads will be there, you can then click on a game and then click open to play it.

Hi guys!

I'm having this problem since yesterday, and I can't find anyone with the same problem.
I have this problem where no microsoft applications work. I can't open Edge, Windows Store or Photos app. When I want to open them, there is absolutely 0 response. No error-message, nothing! When I observe the task manager while starting these apps, they DO appear for like, 1 second. They immediately disappear though.
I don't know what the issue is. I have this problem since I installed the application: SaferVPN (I already uninstalled it).
Ou yea, my Windows search doesn't work either. No reaction from the system at all.

I already tried running sfc /scannow.
My computer is up to date.
There were no windows updates involved at the point of time where the problem occurred.
I tried restarting windows several times.

I run Windows 10 for quite a long time now. Also, when I want to add a Microsoft Account, it give no response either. (I think thats because it usually opens a small Edge Browser Windows for entering the credentials.

Can you guys please help me? I usually find my solutions in already existing forums, but I didn't find anyone who had the same problem as me (perhaps I didn't google the right thing and couldn't find it because of that.)

Thanks for anything in advance.
Kind Regards,
Maarten

Just like it happened in Windows 8, Windows 10 requires users to log in with a Microsoft account in order to install apps from the Store, but this is no longer valid for those whose computers are powered by the Pro SKU of the operating system.

German website WIndowsArea has discovered that Microsoft suddenly made a policy change that makes it possible for Windows 10 Pro users to install apps from the Windows Store without the need for a Microsoft Account.

There are some limitations though. First of all, only freeware applications can be installed, so if you want to purchase an app, an account is still required.

Then, if you?re trying to update a paid application that?s already installed on your Windows 10 device, an account is once again needed.

Why the change?
Microsoft hasn?t explained why exactly it made this change, but given the fact that it concerns the Pro version of the operating system, it?s not difficult to see that the company specifically targeted companies that are trying to get more control over what users install on their systems.

On the other hand, it?s not yet clear if the Enterprise SKU of Windows 10 can also install apps without a Microsoft account because reports in this regard are still mixed, with some claiming that it works, while others indicating that it doesn?t.

Without a doubt, installing apps from the Windows Store without an account can boost adoption of Store apps, but we?ve reached out to Microsoft to find out if this is inde... Read more

I find it perplexing that Microsoft still hasn't considered adding the ability to share Windows Store apps between all accounts on a shared PC like a family desktop. There are several feedback items in the Feedback Hub calling for sharing options ranging from sharing apps across accounts added on the PC to sharing with accounts added as your family on all your PCs.
Consider a simple scenario. I own Quantum Break on the Windows Store through my Xbox One Pre-order. Now I would like to install the game on my family desktop and be able to have it playable on other user accounts on my PC. Unfortunately, Microsoft doesn't make this a straight forward process like it is on platforms like Xbox One or Steam. The only way you can do it is by adding all other accounts to your family and then changing the Windows Store account on all those accounts to my Microsoft Account.
I don't have to state how archaic this whole process is. Given how much Microsoft is promoting Xbox Play Anywhere these days, they really should focus on making these basic scenarios simple first. As it stands, I cant convince anyone in my circle of family and friends to invest in the Xbox ecosystem if it cant deliver these features which steam has had for years.

Answer:Why hasn't Microsoft implemented Windows Store app sharing between accounts on a single PC?

I'm sincere: first time I herd that. Accounts were created for differentiate people on the same machine, avoiding damages or interferences.
On desktops, when you install most apps / progs , if you choose Custom install instead of Fast, it will ask sooner or later "Applies on your account or all accounts"

Answer:Possible to create factory default/recovery disk on s10-2 with windows 7 sold by microsoft store?

If it has OneKey Recovery, and it works the same as the version that comes with the S12, then yes, you can create Factory Default Recovery Disks using an external usb cd/dvd burner. One would assume that you can do a recovery this way too.

Answer:Crashed in Atlanta

You have two options:

Either try booting to safe mode and use a virus scanner and spyware scanner that will clean in that mode, or reinstall everything from scratch.

Keep in mind if you take the former route, there may be damaged system files and the system may not operate as expected. Plus, some of that stuff could come back.

On the other hand, if you do reinstall everything, just make sure you delete the partition and recreate it before proceeding with the reinstall. Depending on your computer's manufacturer, their reinstall software may do that by default without even asking if you want to do it.

My opinion is do a reinstall, and as soon as you get it back up, purchase antivirus software and antispyware. (Yes, they are two separate issues)

You can get free antivirus programs such as avast or avg that do a decent job, but free anti-spyware software is harder to find and often doesn't provide on-access protection. Most of them are scanners and cleaners only and don't prevent attacks.

Hi, I have a problem with a Windows 10 store on my desktop PC. This is not a phone.
I have the latest build 10240 with all of the updates installed. The last few updates installed over last night and then my Store app stopped working.
I searched reddit and found some guys have a similar problem:
https://www.reddit.com/r/Windows10/comments/3ej38n/store_update_stuck_on_00mb/
The thing was that when I tried to open the Store app this morning I've got a message: Before you can shop, we need to update the Store
I then pressed Update button and then It tries to update the Store app.
But then it just says Pending and it doesn't do anything for the whole day now.
I think there must be some other applications waiting for an update and they all got stuck.
Does any have any idea how to open the store?

Answer:Windows 10 Desktop (not for phones) Store update pending. How can I open the store?

Exactly the same problem here in New Zealand on 2 machines. 10240 is installed on both PCs and they simply refuse to download any data from the store that will perform the store update. One PC is sitting on the "pending" which the other gets a little further to "0.0 MB of 40.1 MB...". It is only a few days until official launch so these basic bugs really ought to have been sorted by now :-(

Hi everyone,

I bought a SONY VAIO desktop in 2001 or 2002 that came bundled with Windows XP. The HW build includes an ASUS TU-(Tualatin) something system board and an Intel Celeron 1.3 Ghz chip.

Everything was working fine until I had the nerve to wipe the hard drive clean to speed up performance. I had too many programs on the 40 GB Maxtor and they were bringing things to a crawl.

After formatting the drive and installing a brand new Windows XP PRO, the power supply FAN and the CPU fan came on and stayed on.

I upgraded the Award BIOS ($49.95 from esupport.com!) and still had the same problem.

I bought a new ANTEC ATX power supply that is just whisper quiet. Wow.

Sadly, the CPU fan is on and stays on as soon as you apply power. Plus I always get routed to the BIOS screen to check something about Power Management but I don't see anything.

This tells me that there is a POST, CMOS, BIOS issue somewhere. However, my PC tech days are 10 years behind me so I am mainly here looking for a way to clear my CMOS and fiddle with BIOS.

I am also subscribing to the O'Reilly SAFARI bookshelf to get access to the Mueller book (upgrading and repairing PCs) which us technicians swore by a decade ago.

So that's it, a family man on a budget with some skills but in need of help.

Samuel
 

Answer:SONY VAIO tweaker -- Atlanta

To clear the CMOS, remove the lithium battery out of the motherboard and wait a few minutes. The only thing with your BIOS is that sony usually locks it up so you can't really mess with it to overclock or anything.

As I said, this will be the 4th time I need to send the computer back to have this fixed, and I'd rather not do it a 5th. So - does anyone have any suggestions on what to tell the people in Atlanta?

I'm searching for a job and am basically willing to work completely free if I can get my foot in the door. I've done some searching and I can't seem to find what I'm looking for. I've worked in the IT field for about 12 years now but due to an accident in 2001, I've done a lot of work since then on my own and I'm tired of working alone.

I'm not exposed to enough problems right now to feel like I can really compete with others in my field, and it would be great if I could just solicit myself to some companies to see if they'd be willing to let me learn on the job knowing that I'd be learning their way of doing things and could hire me if they desired down the road.

Has anyone tried doing this before? From age 15 to 20 I was very successful at getting jobs simply by picking up the phone book and contacting a slew of companies I had interest in, but that was 1996-2001, and I know the world has changed a lot.

I have a 2 tb Network store on a 1 gig Ethernet, which worked fine on Windows 7.

I ran the upgrade advisor this facility and software was not identified as a potential problem.

However it does NOT WORK.

It just says it is incompatible on Windows 8.

The Novostore website is not helpful.

There is no useful information as to if or when it will be made to work.

Any help welcome perhaps Robinb9 will know what to do?

Regards

Stewart

Answer:NOVO STORE Network Store Not compatible with Windows 8

I got a support notice from Novo'

It said 'FREE upgrade for our Bundle customers'

So I clicked on it to see what it said.

19Euro Admin Charge.

In my book that is NOT FREE

I want to upgrade to win10 mobile on my lumia 640 but was wondering if the apps on the two stores are compatible? Do apps on windows phone 8.1 work on windows 10 mobile or can be found on the win10 mobile store?
Are there less apps on the win10 mobile store?
Sorry, I'm just not sure how this works.

Answer:Windows 10 Mobile app store vs Windows Phone 8.1 app store differences?

You can safely upgrade, there's no difference in stores as it's still one and the same store. They're no two app stores for win mobile. You've got nothing to worry about

I just got an HP Stream 8, which is my first experience with WIndows 8. I have a Lumia 521 already, and while it certainly isn't the perfect phone, it has served my purposes well for the last year. I've found enough of the apps I need for the phone to keep me from feeling deprived.
So when I started up the Stream 8 tablet and started looking for apps, I was surprised to find that the app situation in the Windows Store seems to be even worse than for WP! (Now, before you say it, I understand the whole thing about being able to install full desktop applications, etc. That's great, and that is part of the reason I wanted the Stream 8. But that's not what I'm talking about here.)
Many apps that *are* in the WP store aren't even in the Windows app store. Pandora and USAA are just the first two I looked for and didn't find, even though they both have very good WP apps. Am I missing something? Even though Android and iOS have gained a ton of market share in the mobile market, Windows is still a dominant force. Why aren't developers building for this?
Boy, Windows 10 can't come soon enough...hopefully developers will then finally feel like MS knows what they are doing and aren't going to change course every year like they have done over the last few years.
Ugh. I want to love this new tablet....

Answer:Is the Windows Store app situation even worse than the Windows Phone app store?

Yea, the Windows and Windows Phone Store gap is an interesting one, with titles available on one, not on the other and vice versa.
I'd agree the Windows Store is definitely inferior to the WP app selection, but the ability to run legacy programs - although usually not as finger-friendly - is quite the trump card.

I opened Microsoft Store on my windows 8 desktop. There is Bank of America App. I then searched for "Bank of America" in the store. It returned nothing. It has been going on since yesterday. It happened before. Updates seemed fixed. It is happening again. Is Microsoft serious about competing?

Answer:Microsoft, are you serious about your app store?

Is this thread serious? Am I understanding you right? A service that doesn't have an app that you want in it's store isn't competing? Or a app store that returns nil results of your query isn't competing? Either way, both scenario's makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.
Regardless. As a test I was able to search for the Bank of America app in the store and got results. Furthermore, the app showed up as soon as I opened the store but decided to try it anyway.

1. Is MS store in Win 8 an application?
2. Can we install it in Win 7? If so,how?

Answer:Microsoft Store of Win 8 in Win 7

Hello whateverman, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The Windows 8 Store is a feature only for Windows 8 to be able to install Store (Metro) apps in Windows 8.

You cannot add it to Windows 7. The Store apps will not install or work in Windows 7.

Sorry.

I can't download any app from store, also can't update any app. I am using Lumia 535, and my OS vision is 10586.29

Answer:Microsoft Store

I think you mean the Windows Store, which is where you download apps and games.
Try a soft reset. That generally fixes store problems. In order to do a soft reset, simply hold down the power button and the volume down button until the phone vibrates.

Question: Microsoft Store

In the Microsoft Store, some of the Apps - but not all - prior to installation display the following warning: -

"This app has permission to use some features of your PC that might affect your privacy"

Does anyone know what this actually means in simple English..?

Would it not be more appropriate for all apps NOT to have such permission and to have to request permission from the User as and when needed, with an explanation as to why permission for access to "privacy" is being requested and what the potential impact of agreeing to such permission might be....?

I have digital cable via Oceanic Time Warner in Hawaii. I recently purchased a Scientific Atlanta Explorer 2200 Digital Cable Box from ebay. When I hooked it up to my cable line, the display on the cable box started counting down. Its final display was of 4 dashes. But on the tv there was no picture to be had. Any ideas? Do I need to download some kind of software to its front USB port. Please Help!
