I've some problem with Microsoft Store on Windows 10, version 1909 (built SO 18363.959). In Settings, App...it doesn't appears, but, if I search it, it appears but doesn't open.

To fix the problem I run the command (as suggested here):

Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers| Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

in the powershell (launched as admin). The results was a lot of 0x80073CFE errors, and now I am not able to open Settings (when I click on it, it becomes as in the below figure).

Before the above solution I tried also these solutions, but without any success.

Could you suggest me a way to fix these problems without losing the data please?

EDIT: I'd like to preserve the installed softwares as well.

Also the windows icons (battery, volume, ecc) in the toolbar do not work.

EDIT2: the command

DISM /online /Cleanup-Image / ScanHealth

produces the following error (the strange thing is that now the weather app works):

Error: 87

Management and maintenance of distribution images: impossible to recognize the command line option "". For more information, see the Help through the DISM.exe /? Command.

The Image Management and Maintenance log file distribution is available at C: \ WINDOWS \ Logs \ DISM \ dism.log

EDIT3: after the running of the command sfc /scannow, the output is: Windows Resource Protection: No integrity violations found.

  • Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator and run first dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth and then second SFC /SCANNOW When done, close everything and see if Store is now in Settings, Apps. Then repair it from there. – John Aug 1 at 15:43
  • You ran a destructive command. Performing an in-place repair to the same version is the best solution – Ramhound Aug 1 at 16:00
  • Hello @John I tried your commands, the results in the cmd are ok, but settings (and other stuff) do not work as before – Gennaro Arguzzi Aug 1 at 18:58

  • Hi @harrymc thank you for your solution. I edited my request: I need to preserve data and installed softwares as well. – Gennaro Arguzzi Aug 1 at 19:03
  • Both solutions will do that. – harrymc Aug 1 at 19:07
  • Hi @harrymc I did the in-place update. Now I can open settings, windows icons, but Microsoft Store doesn't appear in the list of installed softwares. If I search it and click on it, it doesn't open. Morover I can't open email windows app, calendar windows app, weather windows app. Could you suggest me a way to fix these problems please? – Gennaro Arguzzi Aug 2 at 11:47
