Windows 8.1 domain user - live tiles do not work

We have a new Surface Pro 3 with Windows 8.1 that we have joined to our domain (2008).  If I log on as a domain user, most of the tiles on the Start screen are disabled with a small X in the bottom right corner and the live tiles do not refresh.  If I log on with a local user account that is set up as a Microsoft account, the tiles are fine and work as they should.  I have linked the domain user to the Microsoft account but that did not help.  This is the first 8.1 PC that we have joined to our domain.  Are there some group policies that we need to change or set up?

If you have disabled the windows store then this can happen. The store is also responsible for installing and updating apps so disabling it also disables that functionality. Since apps are installed per-user, local accounts would update fine.

I don't remember disabling the store.  How can I check that and enable it?  The store is one of the tiles with an X and when I click on it, it pops up a green screen and then minimizes immediately.  I tried running 'wsreset' and it gave a message "Windows cannot find 'ms-windows-storePurgeCaches'.  Make sure you typed the name correctly and try again.'

Check your group policies.

I've made some progress on my own...  the wsreset would not run because the Windows Firewall was disabled.  I enabled the firewall, ran the wsreset and now the Windows Store will run.  I've been able to install all but 6 or 7 of the apps that previously had the X in the bottom right corner and they are working.  The 6 or 7 that will not install just give the message, "Something happened and your purchase can't be completed.  Error code: 0x80070057".  The error code varies for different apps.  I'm still googling answers for this message.
