Error Code 0x8024600e when trying to Install or Update Windows Store Apps


  1. My problem was when I turned off UAC and then turned it back on. That process seemed to delete the WinStore folder in the windows directory. I just added the folder back and all went well.

  2. I had this problem (error code 0x8024600e) in a PC where all my metro apps broke and it wouldn’t allow updates, displaying a “x” in the tile, I had to fix them by repairing via the Store one by one. 😛

  3. a. Open an elevated Command Prompt from the Power User Tasks Menu. Just press the WINDOWSand X keys together and then click on Command Prompt (Admin). Click Yes to the User Account Control message that appears.

    b. Type the below commands to run:

    net stop wuauserv

    rename c:windowsSoftwareDistribution softwaredistribution.old

    net start wuauserv

    c. After running the above commands, check if they are able to install the updates for those apps.

    And don’t delete softwaredistribution.old folder.

  4. Works beautifully!

    I had to boot into SafeMode in order to do the rename step for some reason (even as Admin on cmd), but other than that, solved this error! Thanks!
