    Problem is back. Apps are failing to install with the useless error code. What if wrong with the windows store? There's always this problem with apps.
    Tried clearing the windows store cache but that didn't work.

    Try this. At an elevated powershell prompt type
    Code:
    Add-AppxPackage -register "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.WindowsStore_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AppxManifest.xml" -DisableDevelopmentMode
    and enter.

    Thanks lees, but it says Add-AppPackage is not recognized as an internal or external command

    That was AppxPackage. Were you in powershell, not a command prompt?

    Are these apps being installed on the C drive or SD Card?

    WSReset.exe is not solving the problem either. Do I have to reset Windows again? Just did that last month when I opted it off the insider preview

    Were you ever able to run that powershell command successfully? If not, what error did you get?

    There is another PS command to reget (essentially reset) all the apps.

    No I couldn't run. Kept getting the error that it's not an internal or external command. Could you help with any other method?
