I have a system on which I uninstalled most Windows 10, including the Store app, apps with PowerShell. I believe the command was...
Get-AppxPackage *windowsstore* | Remove-AppxPackage
In the meantime, I sometimes use the Edge browser since it cannot really be uninstalled [and Windows 10 prefers one to set is the default browser]. But come to find out, if you want to be able install extensions in Edge, the sanctioned method is through the Windows Store app.
So I followed some directions I found online to reinstall the Store, but after doing so whenever I try to install something from the Store, I receive error code 0x80073D05.
That led me to try the Microsoft Windows Store Apps troubleshooter. It tells me that the "Windows Store cache and licenses may be corrupt.", and offers to reset Windows Store. After attempting to reset Windows Store, it tells me, "Windows Store cache may be damaged" and that it is not fixed.
Then I found some advice to run WSReset.exe in 'C:\Windows\System32' as Administrator. But I still received the 0x80073D05 error after this.
I then tried renaming the Cache folder 'C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.WindowsStore_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState' to Cache.old, and creating a Cache folder. After that reboot, and re-run the Windows Store Apps troubleshooter, and it is supposed to now fix the corruption. But no, it still says, "Windows Store cache may be damaged" and that it is not fixed.
So, is there a way to reinstall the Store without the "cache damage"?
Thanks for any info.
