For quite a while we have heard of some Windows 11 users having problems with installing the Amazon Appstore to their system. Apparently, they get an error that states, “This app will not work on your device.” From what we have gathered, this error message tends to pop up when the System requirements to install Amazon Appstore on Windows 11 are not met – like, maybe Virtualization is not enabled or the Microsoft Store is not updated.

2] Update the Microsoft Store
Before we look at other solutions, we believe updating the Microsoft Store could set things right again, and as such, it should be the first step to take.
- Open the Microsoft Store

- Get Updates
Open the Microsoft Store
To update the Store, you must first open it. You can do this by clicking on the relevant icon located on the Taskbar. If it’s not there, we suggest clicking on the Windows key and have a look around in the Start Menu.
Navigate to Library
Once the Microsoft Store is up and running, you must now move to a section that reads, Library. It is usually located at the bottom left corner, right above Help.
The final step here after opening the Library section is to click on Get Updates. This will automatically check for any available updates for all apps, and that includes the Microsoft Store. If any are found, the system will automatically download and install.
