Testing a new surface pro 3. After the device was added to the domain, the metro apps will not open when a domain user is signed on. The error message is "this app can't open. There's a problem with XXX. contact your administrator about repairing or reinstalling.

How do I allow some apps to run, mail for example?

We had this issue when we started rolling our the Surface Pro 2's!!!

Ensure the local Windows firewall service on the device is running and try the apps again.

I believe for the Windows Store to work the Windows Firewall Service has to be running.

Also ensure your account has an Microsoft Account associated with it,

Maybe this guide will help you further:
