Microsoft Store - App will not login

Recommended Posts



Things used to work fine...but in the last 4 months, using Windows 10 on my desktop (the only one using the VPN) I can no longer log into the Microsoft Store and all Windows 10 Apps (not programs) will not let me log in.


I tried on my laptop (no vpn) and mobile (W10 no vpn) - no issues.


I tried uninstalling all the network adapters then rebooting - no luck.


I tried updating the store on my phone - no change.


Definitely logged into the store and have a connection (posting from the desktop)


Apps do get installed if I use another device and select 'install on all devices'


Suspect it is the VPN?


Anyone else having this issue?


ideas how to troubleshoot it?


Thoughts about this?

It seems you're not alone.


ideas how to troubleshoot it?

You could try asking at TechNet.


Maybe run a VM? This is probably a little extreme. But at least you could let your main OS not use any VPN and your apps would thus work. While you'd then use the VPN from inside the VM, for privacy and whatnot.


Thoughts about this?

Don't use a restrictive OS like Windows? Maybe I'm old-school, but local apps shouldn't require a login.
