    My Store and Messages apps don't work since I logged off from my account. I tried every possible solution listed here, none of them worked (except the PC reset option which I'd like to avoid as much as possible). I don't know what other apps are broken but those two definitely are.

    I had the exact same issue with the windows store not opening. I had to reinstall windows 10 with the option of keeping my files, but all apps and installed programs were lost. I see there are a number of things one can try to fix it and that what may have worked for some did not work for others. I was wondering if anyone has tried to fix the store app using a restore point verses reinstalling windows 10 and if it actually worked. After the installation I did create a restore point making sure the store app opened with no problem first and will continue to create restore points after installing apps/programs and checking that the store app still opens. Hopefully this will save me some grief down the road. Please let me know if this has been done already and if it worked.

    Mind did not work either so i tried restoring but it was point to when it was still not working, if anyone else has the same problem you can always restore if the restore point is on a date when it did work. Control Panel\System and Security\Security and Maintenance to go restore your computer

    Hi everyone.
    Just wanted to add myself as experiencing the "Windows Store" issue. I tried all I found in the web, but nothing to do: store and many apps won't open (including calendar, calculator...).
    I was hoping to fix it by installing W10 Anniversary Edition, but this hope vanished too.
    Dear MS, wake up! I can't believe this is such a huge issue!

    Updated Aug 11th: It's a miracle! From today Windows Store and all aps are working properly. Maybe that's due to release KB3176495. Well done! Thanks.

    i didn't have that subfolder either...then it occurred to me that it might be a hidden folder. I went to View and checked Hidden...that's when the Apps folder appeared and I was able to empty the LocalCache folder. It only had 1 file in it...but now Windows Store is working.

    Create a new local user account and log in using that. If that fixes the problem, migrate your data to the new account. Worked for me.

    Hi,

    Please help!!!

    yesterday I messed up with permissions under security tab for "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps" folder, later I cannot open any windows based apps not even windows store. when I try to open it just flick or force close.

    I tried several measures no luck.

    "WSReset.exe"

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

    "Add-AppxPackage -register "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\******\AppxManifest.xml" -DisableDevelopmentMode"

    Windows in-built trouble shooting utility "Appsdiagnostic10.diagcab" error"ms-windows-store:purgecaches"

    I think your fix will be applicable for me. I am a noob, kindly give me simple step by step procedure.

    Please Please help

    Thanks in Advance

    Tried many suggestions mentioned here and so far no pay dirt to get store/select apps functioning again, its getting a tad sickening to spend hours or days after an update looking for a resolves to these induced problems. Have 6 devices now running the Anniversary Update w/five needing or that needed attention (issues being very broad and different), there is absolutely no joy now when a W10 update ensues because it is pretty much a guarantee it won't be error free, so much for being "pain free" and thanks MS... NOT!

    Nope didn't work here, actually got an error "The app didn't start" (again) since I've used the command WSReset.exe before many a times.

    Even resorted to rolling back to previous build, that did not work either nor did the cumulative update.

    In my case many apps such as, photos, maps, news, phone companion and so on, no longer function either.

    Looks like a complete wipe is going to be the only answer unless MS or someone else comes up with more suggestions.

    Oct 11/16 cumulative update (patch Tue) did not help either...

    That worked but the result is very slow.

    I eventually saw a blank white window, then the store appears behind a "Just a Moment" popup with the wheel of dots which keeps turning but nothing else happens.

    I closed that window and tried to SEARCH, again I get the wheel and for an inordinately long time.

    I can see the available apps but can't download them. (My internet connection is quite fast.)

    I have been working on this for months and was so frustrated. Tonight I got silly desperate and ran CC Cleaner to clean the registry and clicked on the store and it opened right up and my games all started working again. I even just used the free version of the CC Cleaner. I am amazed. Why couldn't Microsoft do this?
