Hi,
After the update 2 on windows 8.1.  All of our domain users get "you cannot access the windows store because you're signed in to this pc using a temporary or guest account......" while opening windows 8.1 store.  All my users use mandatory profiles.  Could some one guide me onto:
-how and what changes should I make on my base image of 8.1?
-how/where what changes should I make on the domain in Group policy to make my profiles work?
-I also run sccm 2012 R2 if that makes the things easier I can use it for deploying store apps, but I prefer to make a base windows 8.1 image throw all required apps on it.  I would like to make sure that my domain user can open up windows store after that I can capture this image and deploy.
Need help thanks
Note: Before this update 1 of windows 8.1 things worked great.


Update : Just installed brand new image 8.1 update 2.  logged in with domain user with mandatory profile and the same error.  Something got to do with this update 2?  Need help.

Hi
since it is happening to all your users not just a problem with a single user which you could delete a profile and re-add. There maybe solution here for you by adding a registry key that should apply to all.
Sourced this for you>. Open a command prompt and run the following:
powershell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted Add-AppxPackage
           -DisableDevelopmentMode 
           -Register $Env:SystemRoot\WinStore\AppxManifest.xml 

Open in new window

(All on one line.)

Will wait for your updates if this worked

Hi Merete,
Thanks for the reply. I have been struggling now to capture the brand new image of window s8.1 fully updated.  I cannot sysprep.  Lots of errors.  I am following:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-ca/windows/hh974336.aspx
No use.  

-On my own image of windows 8.1 I did not updated, uploaded with DISM to SCCM 2012 R2 and downloaded.  Tried logging in as domain user and no error opening up the store.  The update 1 or 2 does something to the permissions, at the moment I am avoiding the updates.
