I managed to download and install the "Retail" not the RTM and I can open Windows Store and every metro app related links just fine. I don't know why you're having the issue but I did hear that the RTM does have a few bugs and that may be the problem.

This has been a recurring problem for me. I had an install of Windows 8 RTM that this happened to. Then I reinstalled Windows 8 with the upgrade key, post-RTM, which fixed it, but only for a few days and then it started happening again. It's really, really starting to **** me off.
Here's the deal. If there is a web link in a metro app, when you click on it, nothing happens. At all. It doesn't make any attempt to launch a web browser of any sort, regardless of whether IE is default or not. Now, for the most part, I couldn't give a ****, because this was mostly used to link to an app's website. I rarely used it. However, now that Pin Steam is out, it is completely useless to me because Steam launches game via web links now and when I click on any game in my library guess what happens? Absolutely nothing. GRR!
So, I do not want to reinstall Windows from scratch again, or reset/refresh my PC, or anything that will cause me to have to reinstall everything. Does anybody know of a way to fix this? Surely I cannot be the only one to have experienced this issue. Thanks in advance to anybody who can help.

Well, when it worked, it would launch in a metro browser if one was default, or go to the desktop and use a regular browser if a non-metro browser was default. Now it just does jack ****.

This is the only bug I have ever experienced in Windows 8, and it's only irritating me because Pin Steam doesn't work, so I'm not ready to give up on 8 yet.
