unable to get apps -- windows store = "no apps match your search"

Question: unable to get apps -- windows store = "no apps match your search"

I was given a Windows 8.1 tablet that once had a detachable keyboard which the guy lost. he reset the whole computer and after I got my information on it instead. After the reset, Windows was no longer activated and I had to reactivate it. which neither of us knows why, it was activated before we did a data factory reset. after I created my user, I installed a bunch of exes. now I go to try to see if I could test out the Windows Store to search for apps. but I search "Windows Store" or "app store" and several other things that may bring it up, but it always says, "no apps match your search" like if the Windows store is missing or somehow magically removed with the reset process. How do I get it back?

Preferred Solution: unable to get apps -- windows store = "no apps match your search"

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.)

I'm trying to update my current genuine Windows 8.1 home to Windows 10. Unfortunately it fails no matter what method I use. I've tried everything. I think it's due to the fact that my windows apps are broken. Same goes for windows store and pc settings. Upon clicking any of the above I get an icon in the taskbar but clicking on it does not reveal any window. Also live update for the tiles associated with apps does not work.

I've tried already :

1. Automatic repair of windows store and apps with a dedicated microsoft app. Output : "Can't find ms-windows-store:PurgeCaches"

2. Using automatic registry repair tool called Wise Registry cleaner. Rebooted, nothing changed.

3. Ran 'regedit' and tried to access HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppModel\Repository\Packages

Hi,
I have to take care for multiple computers for our youth work. It are windows 10 computers with multiple local users (administrators). Computers are clean installed at the beginning of this year.
Windows 10 makes me very unhappy, cause very often Store apps stop functioning. I?ve had troubles with the photos app, the calculator app and the store itself. A user starts the pc and calculator/photo or store app does not work any longer. The app is found in the search result, but it?s icon is white. And under it the text ?desktop app?. No joke: the store pretends to be a desktop app.
I read some other posts on your forum about not working apps or not working store. But ?my? apps and store think they are desktop programs.
When there are problems not all the users on the pc have the problem. Mostly it?s okay for one user, and for all the other users it is corrupt.
I found a work around: make a new user. And for the new user all apps work.
But I get a fulltime job creating new users and giving the user?s documents and settings back.
Does anybody know a way to PREVENT the loss of functionality of the modern apps?
Does anybody know a way to REPAIR the broken modern apps? I found some Powershell magic on the internet, but that did not help.
I?d be very grateful for any help.

Having a little trouble here with downloading apps from the store.

I'm getting an error: "Something happened and your purchase can't be completed. Error code: 0x80244022". This is for a free app.

I've Googled and very little comes up. I've performed the Windows Store Reset as well as the Windows Update Repair (despite Windows update working properly) to no avail.

One site suggested converting the user account to a local account from a Microsoft Account, but that didn't work either.

Any tips would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Answer:Windows Store Error - 0x80244022 - Unable to purchase apps

I am having the EXACT problem you describe. It seems to have started within the last few days. The weird thing is that it started not only on my laptop but also on my desktop computer at approximately the same time. Both are running Windows 8.1. That would suggest it is Windows Update-related or perhaps account-related.

Please do reply if you find a fix and I will do the same.

See the screenshot below for selection you have to make for not to convert your local account to a Microsoft Account:

Windows Store - Sign in with Different Microsoft Account in Windows 8

Screenshot from tutorial Skype App - Use with Local Account in Windows 8.

You of course need an email address (Microsoft Account) but it will only be used for the app in question (Windows Store is also just an app), so in the next dialog either give an existing Microsoft Account credentials or select Sign up for a Microsoft account to create a new one to be used with Store app:

Your Windows sign in account will remain local, it will not be converted to a Microsoft Account.

I want to organize the All Apps list on the Start Menu, but I need to get rid of the apps that clutter it up. I would prefer to do it without replacing the start menu with something like Classic Shell and I don't want to delete all the apps, so I've been attempting to find a way to remove the contents of shell:Appsfolder from the start menu.

I was hoping I could receive some insight into how exactly the Start Menu works. I know that the All Apps list appears to be a combination of three different directories:

shell:Appsfolder
%AppData%\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

Which leads me to believe that it might operate similarly to other system folders like This PC and Libraries, but I haven't found anything that seemed useful in the registry so far. I would appreciate it if someone could help point me in the right direction.

OK, i'd like to make it clear that i'm using the so-called "real" Administrator account that is hidden but can be activated, not a regular account with admin privelidges. At first i was trying to figure out if Metro apps can be used by this account, and it appeared that they cant, but managed to find a trick to enable it. i did it by making sure UAC is on, making sure that FilterAdministratorToken is set to a value of 1 in the Registry, and by enabling "User Account Control: Admin approval mode for the built-in Administrator account" (secpol.msc [Local Security Policy]> Local Policies> Security Options).

So i did a bit more research and toying around, only to discover that although i might have found a workaround for running most Metro apps in general, i discovered that syncing, d/l'ing of apps from the Windows Store, etc is not possible unless you're using a Microsoft account.Please note that any other account with admin privelidges can use the apps without a hitch, as well as any Standard account. So it clearly is not a limitation of just having an admin account, alone.

Also, the built-in Admin is the only kind of account that cant be converted from a local account to a MS Account, all other accounts with admin privelidges can do so. If you look in the Control Panel and try to make changes to the account, you will find that the option isnt available, whereas with other accounts it is. This brings about the issue of not being able to sync or d/l... Read more

Answer:Use Metro Apps As Admin AND Be Able To Sync, d/l Store apps, etc???

Hello Stephen, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Setting that security policy below to be enabled will basically just turn the built-in elevated "Administrator" account into an unelevated administator account that requires UAC approval to open or run anything that requires elevated rights to do so.

This would be why you are able to open the Store afterwards, but you would still need to sign into the Store with any Microsoft account to be able to install any "Metro" Store apps.
Windows Store - Sign in with Different Microsoft Account in Windows 8

You still will not be able to switch the built-in "Administrator" to be a Microsoft account. It can only remain as a local account.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

My Top Ten reasons Store Apps are preferred over Desktop Apps
I know what you're thinking. How can a store app be better than a desktop app? Well, the title doesn't say "better", it says "preferred". Read the list, and I'm sure you'll get an idea of the difference I'm talking about.
10. A store app has the capability to do everything a desktop app can do, IF the app developer works at it.
9. Universal Windows Apps are safer. They are obtained by using the Store, and you don't have to worry about viruses from the store apps.
8. Store apps do not slow down your system over time the way Desktop Apps can. They don't use the registry, and don't leave behind traces of files that never get cleaned up like many bad behaved desktop apps do. Reinstalling the OS every year can be a thing of the past.
7. Uninstalling a store app leaves NO traces behind and no clutter in your registry. It uninstalls everything contained it the sandbox for that app. Cleaner uninstall. With Desktop apps, you have to use a 3rd party program to track down and eliminate the traces, and sometimes accidentally kill files that other programs were dependent upon.
6. New Universal Apps for Windows 10 can scale to different screen sizes, resolutions, and DPI better. Desktop apps often become unreadable or unmanageable when attempting to scale to different DPI settings, and often the text on buttons will be cut-off or displayed incorrectly.
5. You can use the input of your choice using Universal Windows Apps. Apps b... Read more

Hey guys,

So you know how it's possible to move your shortcuts into folders and rename said folders on regular "desktop" apps? Is this possible with Windows Store "Metro" apps as well?

What I'd really like to do, for example, is have a folder called "Games" where I put all of the games I've gotten from the store. Similar to how Office 2013 is its own folder and you don't HAVE to have Word, Excel, PowerPoint etc on their own in the start menu.

However, opening up the Explorer folder with the Start Menu only shows my "desktop apps" plus a couple choice Metro apps (like Settings)... none of the others.

Any pointers? I'm sure they're stored SOMEWHERE...

Your OS would break.
Users cannot move metro app installation folders around like standalone Win32 programs.

That is what Start groups (tiles) are for. Create a group called "Games" and another group for "Office"
Pin the relevant program / app to your named group.

Users cannot choose where to install metro apps.

Hi All,

I'm looking for some advice on troubleshooting the following issue!

To explain, Windows 8 Pro (X64) was installed by way of a clean install utilising audit mode to configure the User Profile folder location to a new partition on a secondary drive (D:\Users). The 'main' user profile (the one with the issue) was then further configured using the profile list keys within registry to place the 'Main' at the root of D: (e.g. "D:\Main") a location used since the release of Windows XP. Individual folders within this profile have been further customized using the 'location' tab (e.g. "D:\Main\Filing Cabinet\Main Documents" etc.) though this is probably not relevant!

Additionally, directory junctions have been created (mklink /j) in respect of D:\Main with D:\Users........and although probably not necessary D:\Main with C:\Users

The current situation can be summarised as follows:

1. All user accounts are assigned 'administrator' privileges

2. User profiles created under the D:\ partition (e.g. "D:\Users\Secondary" etc.) function normally with Store sign in and working Modern (Metro) Apps

3. The "D:\Main" profile functions correctly except for Store sign in and functioning Modern (Metro) Apps.

This happened to me previously and I could find no solution....I eventually created a new admin profile, where newly installed apps appeared in the program menu and I could pin apps tomthe start menu feom a desktopmshortxut etc.

I copied over my video docs pictures and music folders to the new profile. Now a few months later the same thing is happening again. I have created a new admin profile and it all,works fine there. I have searched on the internet and others have the same issue, but of course anything you search for always finds someone else with the same issue...

Question: Windows Store Apps

I really f*** up this time. I have a desktop with a 64GB SSD for my Windows boot drive. I store all other programs on separate drive. I use visual studio and of course it starting eating my space. So I thought I will move my store apps to another drive. Well some where in moving it I cut the files from WindowsApps to another drive with out full permissions so all my files got corrupted. I thought by cleaning out my WindowsApps folder it would just redownload stuff nope now none of my apps work. My question is it possible to copy the WindowsApps folder from another working pc or does it not work that way. Because I have a few working win8 pcs I could use or am I just going to have to reinstall win8

Answer:Windows Store Apps

Well first I want to tell you: Never ever mess around with your system unless you have got a backup (system image) at hand to restore your Windows in case desaster strikes.

To resolve your current problem I recommend reinstalling Windows. By copying those files from another PC you would most likely face various permission difficulties which would take hours to fix with no guarantee that you will ever make your system stable again. Seriously, better reinstall everything. It takes less time and the result will be much better.

A while a back ago I upgraded from windows 8 to windows 10. I was happy to go back to the classic shell look and feel. Although signing-in password changing/disabling is sadly not up to par as it should be (Can't disable pw/cannnot change back to old pw). Anyways back to my main issue the windows 10 store and apps.

Ways I've tried to get it up and working or just other problems
1) wsreset.exe- fail
2) http://www.techgeekandmore.com/2015/...r-0x80070003/- worked for 1-2 apps then failed
2.1) Renaming SoftwareDistribution to .OLD- failed
3) Every single time I run something in command prompt or admin. powershell I break the start menu & cortana or It- fails
4) I also have trouble logging into the windows store. When I click sign-in I just get a plain blank box, it's like the java script didn't load the sign-in material. I'm pretty sure my java is up to date last time I checked.

In conclusion, it sounds like I need a reinstallation of windows 10/store ; or even to get rid of system entirely (reverting back to 8). It would be a lot of help if someone could give me some kind of direction to take this, because this has been baffling me for awhile. I'm surprised Microsoft has not put out a message about this; although I did hear they pulled their recent windows store update and did update the start menu and cortana in their last update (ofc I just broke it again ).

I installed many apps locker they all work fine but I can still access apps from the all apps list.

Answer:My apps locker work fine but apps can be accessed from the all apps list, how can I prevent this?

Yes. There is no such thing as a real app locker app in Windows Phones. This is because third party apps are not allowed to interact or interfere with other third party apps due to Windows Phone Sandboxing technology.
If the developer was careful with his app, he or she would have indicated the limitations of the "app locker" he created in the app description. Otherwise, if there is no such disclaimer about the limitations of the app in the app description, the user is encouraged to report the app to Microsoft as a fraudulent or misleading app.

Answer:Gifting Windows 8 store apps?

Hello Halo, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Apps are owned by the Microsoft account that purchased them, and cannot be transferred as far as I know.

If you like, you could have your friend sign into the Store with your Microsoft account and purchase the game app to have it always owned by your Microsoft account.

all other internet connections are fine. when I download an app from windows store - says internet is too slow!

Answer:Why can't I download apps from the Windows store?

While this isn't always a fun response - be patient and try again.
There could many reasons for this happening to you as there are many factors at play when you click that download button. Perhaps there are a millions of other users all trying to download that app at the same time. Perhaps the servers in-between you and said app are in maintenance and are slowing things down. There could be a lot of traffic your neighborhood at the moment you clicked download. The ISP you use could throttle that particular network node.
If the apps aren't downloading, just try again in a few minutes or a few hours. Things will probably be very different.

Hi, Greetings to all

When I bought my Windows 8 laptop, I liked the Windows photos app which was default to view photos.

The main feature I liked in that was a slideshow feature which shows collection of pics in a single frame similar to this.
Attachment 42179

(for better understanding I attached image of win 8.1 lock screen slideshow)

Then I installed Windows 8.1 (i choose the option to keep old Windows settings, Apps) and I disabled auto update for store apps.

However after updating I found that photos app along with other system apps were updated to latest version and the feature which I loved was missing. When I press slideshow it just shows 1 image per frame.

So my question is how to downgrade my photos app to older version? Or how to install the old photos app in Windows 8.1
I have the files took from WindowsApps hidden folder.

For many weeks my wife?s PC has had a problem with running the Store (and other) Apps. The problems started shortly after Creators Edition Update was installed.

Manifestation is that when Windows Store is started, the square splash screen is shown, with logo in centre, but proceeds no further. If other already installed Apps are started (e.g. Microsoft Jigsaw), the splash screen is shown, with App name in centre, but it proceeds no further.

PC is running latest (UK) version of Windows 10. Security S/W is MS Defender only.

I have spent many, many days investigating the problem, with zero success. I have searched the web and read many, many posts on related subject. The steps I have taken include the following; most of the steps I have repeated several times (there are a few other steps I have taken, but I regret I did not record them accurately):

1. Run wsreset as admin (never completes)
2. Run Troubleshooter Windows Store Apps (never completes)
3. Run Troubleshooter Windows Update, & Networking
4. Using Powershell, re-installed Store App
5. Using Powershell, re-installed All Apps
6. Ran SFC / scannow
7. Ran DISM repair mode
8. Full Defender Virus Scan
9. Full chckdsk
10. Created another user, logged on as that user, tried Store App (U/S)

Hey anyone who can help feel free to do so:

This is my first post on the windows 8 forums, and I was looking for help with this issue. I downloaded the Microsoft solitaire collection from the windows store, and it will not open. I click on the icon on the start menu, it pops up, and then it just takes me back to the home screen. It happens every time, and so I leave it open in the background hoping that it will eventually get past the start screen, but it never does. I quickly realized that no other apps from the store will open either... They all open for a brief moment and then return me to the start screen.

-I already updated all my drivers, and everything else seems to be running fine once I did that (Other problems disappeared once I updated)

-I already updated all my apps in the Windows Store, and the windows store itself updated when I first started my PC. All of my apps already pre-installed open and work flawlessly.

I ungraded to Windows 10 a couple of months ago with no problems (laptop was working better than it ever has). A couple of weeks ago I installed Windows updates and since then I cant open Windows Store and various apps wont open (calculator, calendar, mail, maps, get started, camera, get skype, solitaire collection, money, phone companion, xbox). They are all greyed out on the start menu and when I click on them nothing happens. When I click on the windows store icon it flashes briefly on the screen then disappears.
I did a system restore (back to Windows 8.1 then reinstalled everything) and when it booted it was fine. But as I installed my apps again and rebooted it came up with an error message which led me to having to go to a restore point or refresh.

I am also unable to uninstall and reinstall since the I cant do so from the windows store and I am unable to find the app anywhere else.

Am I missing something or does anyone have any advice? Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

My Windows 10 News app displays a message Service is not currently available. Please try later.
I tried this on 2 PCs.
Any ideas?

Answer:Service is currently not available - Windows Store apps

Sign out and sign back in with your Microsoft Account.
Run Microsoft Account Troubleshooter
Run Windows 10 Store apps troubleshooter
Use a different ISP and see if that works.
Or maybe its just some network problem at their end. TRagain after a couple of hours and see.
Hope something helps.

Something very odd is happening. I tried to install a number of Windows Store apps ---- none of them would download, so I thought I would try again later, it might be a temporary glitch. Then by pure chance I discovered a lot of files from these apps on an external USB drive, drive E, on which I only keep the ISO file from the re-install. They are all together in a folder called Windows apps. None of them will launch from there.

I know of no reason why they would be in E. I expect Store apps to be somewhere in drive C. Where should they be, and how did they manage to get downloaded to E?

Answer:Where are Windows Store apps downloaded to?

Hello clayto,

Store apps are installed to the hidden protected "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps" folder by default.

I was running win 10 mobile 10586.494 and having issues with phone freezing. I did a device recovery to 8.1. Then did insider and my phone went to 10586.107, all MS apps including store were old versions from the .107 release. The next day my phone updated to 10586.545 46 apps updated but the store, outlook mail, outlook calendar and office apps. did not update to current versions. I waited four days and decided to do a hard reset. Same thing about 46 apps updated but all MS apps including store mail calendar etc. are still at old versions.
How do I force the phone to bring all installed apps including store to update?

The apps in the store are not well programmed they crash anytime, its a big drawback.
some of the doesn't even support. And Microsoft needs to provide more and good apps, provided they wanna see the brand growing.

I have tried the troubleshooter software, which did a partial fix (allowing the store to open). The next thing I tried was to re-register using the following command in powershell admin:

Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

I received the following errors:
Add-AppxPackage : Deployment failed with HRESULT: 0x80073CF6, Package could not be registered.

error 0x80070002: Windows cannot register the package because of an internal error or low memory.

So today, as it is all over Windowscentral, some of the MS core apps and VLC for Windows 10 got their updates. However, they are stuck at 0% and showing no signs of progress. Do you guys have the same problem and how to fix it? I've tried cancelling them all, rebooting and download on at a time but it was no use. Many thanks.

Answer:Why is the store not downloading my apps on Windows 10?

Yep, same here, 12 apps are stuck. The recent Windows update screwed it all, Mail, calendar, Note and store. Even uninstalling that update didn't work. Can't figure out how to make it work.

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,

Answer:Windows Store will not install apps

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.

Answer:Can't Update Apps in Windows Store

I had this same problem today.

easiest workaround I've found, is to uninstall the apps, make sure you mark down somehow what you own.. you'll need this list..

reboot the computer, load the app store, download the apps again.

it should download the app with no problem.

load the app as you would normally and have a nice day.

So I basicallly bought a new laptop two days ago and it came preinstalled with windows 10. However the store and the other apps like camera, xbox, music, weather and photos do not open and become grayed out whenever i click them Ive tried literally everything I've seen on the net.

I tried clearing the cache but i realised my store did not even have a folder yet

typing "Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}" in the command prompt did not work

neither did "sfc /scannow" and other stuff I found on the internet work.

Any form of help will be appreciated
