    ​Hi there, I have an interesting problem. I just change from a Lenovo Helix to a surface pro 3.

    Helix is fine app wise.

    Surface Pro 3 is interesting in that the core apps work fine but the downloaded ones have trouble.

    It appears to be a network connection issue.

    I run Hyper-V and I created a internal VM network to connect my tablet to my VM (I did this because VPN software I use inside that VM screws up my ability to access resources I need)

    Anyways, with that internal network card enabled, Core windows 8.1 apps work fine. But non core ones don't work. I disable that internal NIC and everything works again.

    I didn't have to do this with my Helix and not sure why on my SP3, the core apps can't find the internet connection.

    I know that normal apps are not allowed to open IP connections to the local host. I would not be surprised if Microsoft apps are not restricted like that. Maybe your configuration creates some kind of loopback, so Windows thinks the apps access localhost? Just a guess...
