Remove-AppxPackage with -AllUsers errors out

JMerk 0 Reputation points


I'm running Windows 11 and using the most up to date version of Powershell 7 and am testing out some scripting to get rid of some preinstalled Microsoft packages. However, when I run this script:

Remove-AppxPackage Microsoft.Print3D_3.3.791.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe -AllUsers

I get the error:

An error occurred because a user was logged off.

Deployment Remove operation with target volume C: on Package Microsoft.Print3D_3.3.791.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe from:

failed with error 0x80073D19. See for help diagnosing app deployment


Any ideas?

    This may be due to new feature updates regarding the Microsoft Store.

    Please try first the remove provisioning command line instead of remove package:

    If it doesnt work, you may want to try to reset the Microsoft store components with:

    1. Press Windows+R on your keyboard and type "cmd" then press OK
    2. On the command prompt window, type net user administrator /active:yes and press Enter
    3. Perform a reboot, login to your admin account.
    4. Once done, press Windows+R on your keyboard and type "wsreset" > press Enter
    5. Try to open MS Store again
    6. If that didn't work, kindly reset the MS Store app: go to Windows > Settings > Apps > Apps and Features > search for "Microsoft Store" > click on Advanced options > scroll down and click on the "Reset" option.
    7. Once done, try to open the MS Store again.
