Hello, I hope someone can help me. I upgraded my work PC with windows 8 Enterprise edition from win 7. I activated my windows, I signed in with a live account and trusted my PC. Yet the App store will not launch. I get the following error in event viewer:
Activation of the app winstore_cw5n1h2txyewy!Windows.Store for the Windows.Launch contract was blocked because of a temporary issue with its license. Try launching the app again in a moment.

AppId winstore_cw5n1h2txyewy!Windows.Store ContractId

Does anyone have an idea what is causing this? I am on a work domain is there anyway to troubleshoot it so I know exactly what it is trying to do to tell my network admins if something is blocking the app store. I did run this app apps.diagcab and it said everything is ok. Help please, if not I will need to go back to windows 7. Let me know if you need additional info.

Do you activated it with a "leaked" key, or with a proper msdn key?

If it's the same issue as Server 2012, if your running as the account named "Administrator", you can't access the store. You have to make a user, give it admin privileges (if you care to) and use that, it will be able to use the store.

This is a MSDN Key I am using. I am logged in as my domain ID with admin privileges. I been reading here http://social.techne...33-429ce8bebc8f that it might be an issue with joining to a domain and GPO is affecting it.

I wish MS had more logging features to show what exactly is causing the issue. any other ideas I can try?
