I deleted a Windows Live/Microsoft account (I have others) that I was using for the Windows Store on one of my PCs. Now I can't use the store at all because it wants a password for that particular account - there is no sign out option nor is there a "change username" option that I can see. When I click the "Sign in" button, the store insists on using the deleted account.
So, to summarize, Windows Store is insisting I sign into an account that no longer exists.
How do I get the store to delete it?
Steps taken so far:
- Removing the Live account from the local Credential Manager
- Removing mention of this account in the IdentityCRL registry folder
- Resetting the store cache using wsreset
Thank you for your help, folks. I think this is a bug but Connect isn't accepting bugs or feature requests for Windows 8 right now.
