Troubleshooting problems with Windows Store applications

Here are some points that can be studied based on users’ experience with application problems.

After starting troubleshooting, reboot and check your system.

According to Windows 8 Release Preview system requirements, you must have an active Internet connection and a screen resolution of at least 1024 x 768 to access the Windows store and download and run applications. Please check the resolution.

To get applications, you need a screen resolution of at least 1366 x 768, but do not worry about this snap application function – if your monitor does not support this resolution. It has no influence on the operation or installation of the application.

Change your account to Local and then return to the Live Account from the Control Panel.

Check that Windows is up to date. Also try synchronizing application licenses. Open the Store application, open Charms (WinKey+C), choose Settings > App Updates and click Synchronize Licenses under App Licenses.

If you installed certain applications in your previous version of Windows 8 as Windows 8 CP, they have been registered to your account. Therefore, there is a new option in the version preview to display the installed applications. If you are using the same Live account to login to the preview version, simply right-click on the bar above to get the Your Applications option.

Just click on it to list all your applications – those that have already been installed and those that you have already installed, so try installing from there and see if it makes a difference.

These are some additional troubleshooting steps you may want to try to solve your Windows 8 problems – in addition to trying the troubleshooting application.

What I recommend is, if you are only trying and testing Windows 8 Release Preview, to perform a clean installation of Windows 8 Release Preview instead of upgrading from the previous version of Windows. Try it and install your favorite applications from the store.
