Windows 8 store not working

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I just installed windows 8 to my hptc to try it out and Windows store is not working. I get the message saying: "We weren't able to connect to the store. This could have happened because server problems or network connection timed out. Please try again in a few minutes."

I want to install the Netflix App and see what else is there. I did a quick google, but I can't find an answer to this. My connection is working find using a wireless USB drivie and I'm close to the router so signal is great.

It's a few days from release, so it's possible they are running maintenence on the store or it's just been taken down for a short time.

I know the store has worked before as i have W8 on my wifes PC, so that would be the only explanation as long as everything is in order on your end.

I would hope so... I just found out too that you need to buy Windows Media Center and install it in the add feature which doesn't work either.... omg starting to not like Windows 8 already even though I got it free for 2 years through MSDN.

I just installed windows 8 yesterday so I'm still trying to figure out where everything is. Where do I get the sign up option for that?

When you click on the store and attempt to download an app, it should tell you to login.

The thing is that it doesnt even get there. Once I click the store it says that server might be down or I have connection problems which I don't.

internet is working fine. I used it to download drivers, AV, malwarebytes and all those things I install. I read somewhere that this issue got fixed by re installing again frown.gif.

I sort of have the same problem, windows 8 was already on my laptop, but whenever i click on something to buy and then click back, it doesn't work, only the start menu works. I don't know if it's freezing or something like that but here are my specs:
intel core i3-3110m
intel HD graphics 4000
6GB of ram
500GB HDD
