This is the first time I have worked on this problem. I apologize for the inconvenience. I am unable to solve it for you. I will submit a request to Customer Service on your behalf for a full refund and opt out, so that other experts can assist you.

Hi there, my name is***** you using Windows 8 or Windows 8.1?

I think the problem is because of a folder that's missing from your computer that the Windows store is looking for, but the solution is different for Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. So I'll post both here. Let me know if this fixes it for you.

1) Windows 8

Create a folder C:\Windows\AUInstallAgent and then reboot your computer. If the folder is already there, delete it, recreate it and then reboot.

2) Windows 8.1

Create a folder C:\Windows\AppReadiness and then reboot your computer.

If this doesn't work, there are some other things we can try, but I think this should fix your problem. Please chat me back and let me know.

Expert:  Joel Kalman replied 9 months ago.

In my Secure Remote Assistance session, that was the first thing I did. I was able to locate those folders, and they both exist.
