    Can anyone tell me a simple way to get the store working please? All I get is a message saying I need to repair or reinstall it.

    As an addition to the above - I have now also lost the icon from my screen. The spot where it should be is still there but it is blank. If I click on the blank space it reacts as if the icon is still present.

    Update from Win 7. Funny thing is though - I still have a copy of the last tech preview installed and I can access the store ok from there

    It could be a conflict with your build. I installed via the ISO (you can also upgrade via the ISO, it doesn't have to be a clean install) and the store works fine. Apparently a few people are having issues when upgrading.

    Still no progress with this.
    When I input the following into cmd using admin:
    PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Command "& {$manifest = (Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.WindowsStore).InstallLocation + '\AppxManifest.xml' ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest}"

    I get the following as a response:

    Add-AppxPackage : Deployment failed with HRESULT: 0x80073CF6, Package could
    not be registered.
    error 0x80070002: While processing the request, the system failed to register
    the windows.MRT extension due to the following error: The system cannot find
    the file specified.
    .
    NOTE: For additional information, look for [ActivityId]
    072b5501-cb61-0004-7963-2b0761cbd001 in the Event Log or use the command line
    Get-AppxLog -ActivityID 072b5501-cb61-0004-7963-2b0761cbd001
    At line:1 char:97
    + ... fest.xml' ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manife ...
    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo : WriteError: (C:\Program File...ppxManifest.xml:S
    tring) [Add-AppxPackage], IOException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : DeploymentError,Microsoft.Windows.Appx.PackageMa
    nager.Commands.AddAppxPackageCommand

    Anyone able to help please?

    Finally solved. Instead of running this command in cmd as admin:

    PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Command "& {$manifest = (Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.WindowsStore).InstallLocation + '\AppxManifest.xml' ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest}"

    I ran the following in a powershell as admin and this has solved the problem for me.

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