Lumia 550 - Windows 10 mobile- store wont download apps or updates

Q: Lumia 550 - Windows 10 mobile- store wont download apps or updates

Hi everybody.
I have searched now for the last 4 hours every forum, but I did not find a solution. I just bought today a lumia 550 with windows 10 (10.0.10586.0).
If I want to download an app from the store (e.g. whatsapp) the download starts but than it remains at 0.0. However the connection is good, I can surf in the internet, update my mails, etc. but the store downloads don't work.
Does anybody have a solution? I?m pretty desparate. I also did the region and time setting thing, but it didn?t help
Thanks a lot in advance'

Preferred Solution: Lumia 550 - Windows 10 mobile- store wont download apps or updates

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello
I have upgraded Lumia 730 to anniversary updates.
After that I am facing hell lot of issues.
Lots of apps (Phone, Store, Edge browser.. many more) are not visible and other apps are not working properly.
What should I do?
Why Microsoft releasing buggy updates.
It just scrap my phone.

A:In-build apps(Phone, Store, Edge.. so on) are not visible after anniversary updates on lumia 730

make sure to check for updates in the store.
sometimes you have to give the phone to settle down after the update.
try a soft reset.
if all else fails, hard reset.

I had reset my mobile lumia 730, then i installed few apps newly. Most of apps working correctly with new features, but some of the apps have closing unexpectedly when i opened. I have surfed, but didn't get any solutions or cautions for that issues. I have enough internal memory in my mobile, i thought there won't be the issue cause. Can anyone help me?

Hey everyone, I updated my phone (Lumia 640 LTE) to windows 10 yesterday with the help of the upgrade advisor. It took awhile but it finally updated and I noticed that every single app I had was pending. Some of them were accessible again yesterday but two things happened
1) I dropped my phone and the battery came out, promptly turned it back on
2) Wi-Fi crashed in the night
In the morning I noticed they were still pending and thought it was the Wi-Fi, but I came back from school and they still haven't updated even though the Wi-Fi was on. However my phone was not charging during this period. I need help because even the phone app isn't functioning.

Has anybody been able to download any apps from the Windows 10 Store in the last few days? I've tried the last several days and I keep getting:
"Try that again. Something happened on our end. Waiting a bit might help."
I've even tried using my hotspot connection, but to no avail.
The store loads fine, just can't download any apps.

Is it possible to download free apps from Windows Store directly (without going through "Windows Store" icon/apps in Windows 8.1? I'm having a problem with Windows Store in my OS, whenever I try it, it just said no network connection, but I can surf no problem using FF/Skype etc. If I can go directly to Windows Store website and download the apps directly from there, it'll be awesome, but everytime I tried, it just goes back to my OS Windows Store.

A:How to download free apps in Windows Store?

Hi there and welcome to Eight Forums Michael!

Hmmm, good question. As far as I know it's not possible (at least not easy) to install apps without using the Windows Store.

But hey... why do we not try to get the issue solved so you can use the Windows Store? It sounds to me like a few 'standard tricks' might work in your case. Please follow the following two tutorials. There is a great chance this will solve the problem.
First run the DISM: DISM - Fixing Component Store Corruption in Windows 8

Then run the SFC: SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8
Please do post back your results so I can help you further is these two options don't help you.

Greetz,

It's been stuck like this for a couple of days.
It was working fine before that.
Anyone else getting this?
I think it stopped working after the cumulative update.
EDIT: The solution is:
1. Open the start menu.
2. Type msconfig.
3. Open "System configuration"
4. Select "Normal boot."
5. Restart computer.

A:Store won't download apps

My laptop is doing the same. No connection errors or messages, it just doesn't download anything. Connection has been fine, as I've been downloading Steam games without issue. My updates through the store include an update for the store itself, which I'm hoping is a patch for our problem, but i obviously can't download it. My downloads have also been stuck for a few days. Restarting the service, app, or queue has not solved the problem.

So I've updated my Lumia Icon to Win10 a couple weeks ago and it worked quite fine.
Today I've found my phone at 17% battery charge. Plugged it in and forgot about it for a while. Couple hours after - 12%! Went to the battery saver setting and saw (plugged in, not charging) message next to the battery charge percentage.
Replaced the battery - same problem. Computer sees the data from phone as usual. Tried a different USB cable - same story. Tried to charge it with a wireless charger that worked just fine for me recently - same issue. Did a regular restart, and a couple of soft resets - nothing changed. Not sure what else I can do now. Don't want to do hard reset until it's the absolutely last chance.
Any ideas guys?

My trusty Nokia Lumia 1520 has served me well since launch. But now, with a cracked screen and a dying battery I am in need of an upgrade.

They do that to direct you to Microsoft Camera. Even if you installed it, it would direct you to it.

I just tried reverting to an earlier version of windows 10 mobile, and it failed halfway through. Now my phone boots to this square icon thing and does nothing. When I hold down the power button as per the reset instructions, the phone takes about 20 seconds to turn off. It reboots to the square icon. The instructions then say to hold down the volume down button, but after 2 minutes it has not responded.
Is there a way to force it to reset without having to have a working operating system on it? How do I force it to install windows 8.1 again?

Is there a way to force it to reset without having to have a working operating system on it? How do I force it to install windows 8.1 again? There's the hard reset key sequence:
1 - unplug phone
2 - hold vol up and simultaneously plug charger
3 - keep holding until a ! mark appears
4 - leave button and follw the sequence one key once:
vol up, vol down, power, vol down
5 - gears should appear, you phone should replace last downlaoded build
If doens't work, plug your phone to a pc and use WDRT.
holding power button is soft reset, and is useless now. For all the rest, keep in touch and join forum, we can help you

I am having some trouble getting the default store apps to work. As for the store itself, it used to briefly show the splash then crash. Now it is just an unknown file type that doesn't do anything when clicked. I have tried some of the more common fixes, like the powershell re-register scripts, but none work, all returning errors of one kind or another. At this point, would it just be easier to "Reset this PC", or is there another fix I may not have tried? Thanks!

I really f*** up this time. I have a desktop with a 64GB SSD for my Windows boot drive. I store all other programs on separate drive. I use visual studio and of course it starting eating my space. So I thought I will move my store apps to another drive. Well some where in moving it I cut the files from WindowsApps to another drive with out full permissions so all my files got corrupted. I thought by cleaning out my WindowsApps folder it would just redownload stuff nope now none of my apps work. My question is it possible to copy the WindowsApps folder from another working pc or does it not work that way. Because I have a few working win8 pcs I could use or am I just going to have to reinstall win8

A:Windows Store Apps

Well first I want to tell you: Never ever mess around with your system unless you have got a backup (system image) at hand to restore your Windows in case desaster strikes.

To resolve your current problem I recommend reinstalling Windows. By copying those files from another PC you would most likely face various permission difficulties which would take hours to fix with no guarantee that you will ever make your system stable again. Seriously, better reinstall everything. It takes less time and the result will be much better.

easiest workaround I've found, is to uninstall the apps, make sure you mark down somehow what you own.. you'll need this list..

reboot the computer, load the app store, download the apps again.

it should download the app with no problem.

load the app as you would normally and have a nice day.

You can try the method below.Press Windows + R keys on the keyboard.Type wsreset.exe in the open box and press Enter.Check if it takes you to a store page which displays that the cache has been reset.Now try to open the store app and check.Apparently the servers are overloaded at the moment (which is possible).Source: https://www.reddit.com/r/techsupport/comments/3f1j4c/getting_this_error_0x803f7003_in_windows_store/

Hi, Greetings to all

When I bought my Windows 8 laptop, I liked the Windows photos app which was default to view photos.

The main feature I liked in that was a slideshow feature which shows collection of pics in a single frame similar to this.
Attachment 42179

(for better understanding I attached image of win 8.1 lock screen slideshow)

Then I installed Windows 8.1 (i choose the option to keep old Windows settings, Apps) and I disabled auto update for store apps.

However after updating I found that photos app along with other system apps were updated to latest version and the feature which I loved was missing. When I press slideshow it just shows 1 image per frame.

So my question is how to downgrade my photos app to older version? Or how to install the old photos app in Windows 8.1
I have the files took from WindowsApps hidden folder.

Did you install all of the updates for Windows 8? If not when you go to the store you won't see windows 8.1.

I have Windows 8.1. I've tried typing "windows", "store", "windows store" in the search bar on the All Apps page. My computer login is tied to my Windows Live account and I've tried making IE my default browser. I've been searching the Internet for similar situations, but I can't figure out why I can't find the Windows Store tile!

I was running win 10 mobile 10586.494 and having issues with phone freezing. I did a device recovery to 8.1. Then did insider and my phone went to 10586.107, all MS apps including store were old versions from the .107 release. The next day my phone updated to 10586.545 46 apps updated but the store, outlook mail, outlook calendar and office apps. did not update to current versions. I waited four days and decided to do a hard reset. Same thing about 46 apps updated but all MS apps including store mail calendar etc. are still at old versions.
How do I force the phone to bring all installed apps including store to update?

Hi,

I'm new to Windows 8.1 and just discovered the Windows Store. What are the advantages or disadvantages of using the Windows Store? it doesn't contain many of the apps I've needed so far, and for like VLC there is a store offering but you can download VLC from the VideoLAN website - when should I install apps from the Store vs download them from the suppliers website?

Thanks

Noob

A:When should I install apps from the Windows Store?

You download apps from the Windows Store when you want touch optimized "modern" apps. If you aren't using a touch enabled computer then you are probably better off installing/running the regular Windows desktop program (if available) since the "modern" apps found in the Store are generally not as full featured.

I can't open any of these apps when this happened after attempting to fix an issue started with not being able to unpin/pin new apps to the start menu.

Help would greatly be appreciated.

Hi everyone,

I recently downloaded the google app from the windows store. I would like to pin it to start, but strangely it doesn't show up in the all apps menu. The only way that I have found to open it is by searching for it in the store and opening it from there. When I do open it from the store, it doesn't show up in my task bar. Also when I open it, it doesn't show when I swipe from the left edge on my surface pro 4. I am also unable to uninstall and reinstall since the I cant do so from the windows store and I am unable to find the app anywhere else.

Am I missing something or does anyone have any advice? Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

Something very odd is happening. I tried to install a number of Windows Store apps ---- none of them would download, so I thought I would try again later, it might be a temporary glitch. Then by pure chance I discovered a lot of files from these apps on an external USB drive, drive E, on which I only keep the ISO file from the re-install. They are all together in a folder called Windows apps. None of them will launch from there.

I know of no reason why they would be in E. I expect Store apps to be somewhere in drive C. Where should they be, and how did they manage to get downloaded to E?

A:Where are Windows Store apps downloaded to?

Hello clayto,

Store apps are installed to the hidden protected "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps" folder by default.

Hello Will, and welcome to Eight Forums.

You might see if going through the troubleshooting steps in the tutorial below may be able to help. I'm suspecting that option 14 may at issue here to clear the Store cache, so you might try that one first.

I just bought W8 and am not allowed to download any apps from the store, it says I need to delete a PC, but I already deleted them all. In fact there is no PC listed, but it says I need to wait 3 days to add a new PC.

This is kind of ridiculous. I think the problem is because I reformatted a few times with a virtual machine that was tied to my windows email. Is there a way around this?

edit: In case anyone suggests, I tried refreshing, and also resetting.
