Windows Store is one of the most used features on my Windows 8.1. In fact, Windows Store is integrated with Windows Updates and some of the background services running under Windows. Thus, if there is corruption in the files associated with these services, errors can occur when using Windows Store.

Microsoft has provided these errors with unique error codes so that you can easily apply them. We have already seen how to fix bugs like 0x8024001e, 0x8024600e, 0x80073cf9, something happened and your purchase could not be completed, something happened and Windows Store stops working. This application could not be installed
