Simple solution :) Works for Windows 8 (8.0 or 8.1) and Windows 10  :thumbsup:

From: http://blogs.technet.com/b/ouc1too/archive/2013/10/19/windows-app-store-doesn-t-load-after-8-1-upgrade.aspx

Copy Paste:
Open a Command Prompt as an Administrator.

 

In the Administrator Command Prompt

 

type or paste the following command:
 powershell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $Env:SystemRoot\WinStore\AppxManifest.xml

hit Enter.

Now in that same Administrator Command Prompt type or paste:
 start "" "ms-windows-store:"

Voila. Enjoy installing some new Store apps.

Update 10/2/2014 – I’ve had several users contact me that this also works when testing the Windows 10 Technical Preview which you can get here - Windows 10 Technical Preview

I’ve tested these steps this morning, and they do appear to be the same in Windows 10.

not working, fix, Powershell, Windows 8.1, add-appxpackage, Store, ms-windows-store, ExecutionPolicy, Microsoft, Apps, app, Windows 10 upgrade, Windows 10, Windows 8
