Are you getting any kind of error message or is it just sitting there?  

Try creating a new profile and accessing the store from the new profile.

I found the error log whenever I can't open the Windows store.

I tried to go to this path:

C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.WindowsStore_2015.8.12.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\WinStore.Mobile.exe

this can't even open the WindowsApps folder at all, so hard to delete it myself !
marrowyungSenior Technical architecture (Data)Author Commented:
when watching this:

I execute this :

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

but it keep asking me for the path, but I have tell the path:

C:\Program Files\WindowsApps

and it still complaining about:

Add-AppxPackage : An invalid manifest file name was passed to this function. This file must be named AppxManifest.xml

what is the problem ?
marrowyungSenior Technical architecture (Data)Author Commented:
now one apps found to not been able to uninstall and can't run, how to do ?
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Male sure UAC is turned ON (in case you turned it off).

Then run DISM (a Windows 8.1 / 10 repair tool).

Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator.
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /Scanhealth (takes 15 - 20 minutes).
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /Restorehealth (takes 15 - 20 minutes).
Restart the computer and test.
marrowyungSenior Technical architecture (Data)Author Commented:
situation now is:

1) if Windows store is ok, some of the apps is NOT ok.
2) if Windows store is not ok, then those apps (the same apps) is OK.

any case where those apps can't be uninstall ?
marrowyungSenior Technical architecture (Data)Author Commented:
restarted the PC, the apps can't be uninstall still can't be uninstall, and in this case, that apps still not runnable !
RobOwner (Aidellio)Commented:
I had a similar issue.  Ran the powershell command found here:
The reboot is important and you need to do it RIGHT after running the script.  I ignored this and tried to open the store but had the same issue.  Ran the powershell script again, rebooted, and all good.

right now seems I have an apps open error too which the apps can't start at all and the error is :

the store back to normal without any reason !

any way to solve the apps problem? it don't allow me to UNINSTALL the apps at all
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Click on Start. APPS like News, Money, Phone Company can be uninstalled. Right Click, Uninstall. Microsoft APPS cannot be uninstalled.

Back farther, I advised running DISM. Did you?

"Back farther, I advised running DISM. Did you?

yes, but it doesn't help ! you are from US? what is the time now? I am in asia time zone, tks for quick reply!

"Click on Start. APPS like News, Money, Phone Company can be uninstalled. Right Click, Uninstall. Microsoft APPS cannot be uninstalled. "

all apps can be uninstall just that one, that one is Instagram !



"I had a similar issue.  Ran the powershell command found here:"

I also tried that but it doesn't help for the apps problem.
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
If the serious repairs did not work, so that "nothing works", then it is time to consider reinstalling Windows 10 fresh. What you want to do works on my system.
marrowyungSenior Technical architecture (Data)Author Commented:
"What you want to do works on my system. "

on your system? I don't get it.

tks anyway. let's wait for some more and I will close this ticket!
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
I don't get it.  <-- On my Windows 10 system, the Store opens and works fine, I can uninstall any APP which is allowed to be uninstalled. That is what I meant.

By the way, it is 10:00 pm EDT on Saturday Evening, September 12, 2015. I am in North America in the Eastern time zone.
RobOwner (Aidellio)Commented:
I'm also in the same boat as John.  My windows store works and I can add and uninstall apps just fine.  I did have an issue installing/uninstalling apps that no longer exists after i ran that powershell command above (which i understand didn't work for you).  You did reboot right after running it right? You can't open anything after running the script or it won't work.
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
The powershell command reference was posted on August 11, and Microsoft promised to fix the Store issue within 48 hours. There have been lots of updates and two patch Tuesdays since August 6.

"  You did reboot right after running it right?"

yes, right after. I am not going to refresh/reinstall my PC just because of this apps,. just one apps. the rest of the apps still works good !

"You can't open anything after running the script or it won't work. "

no, right now, just one apps doesn't work!

the problem BEFORE is windows store can't open and it has an error log on application log /event log.

but after many days later I didn't do anything BUT it works back on !

so now, just one apps can't be uninstall and it doesn't work, you can see my log once I run the apps.
