Store app is missing

What I have done so far

  1. ChkDsk on C drive ... clean
  2. Ran windows store troubleshooter ... no problem
  3. RAn WsReset ... OK
  4. PowerShell - PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> Get-AppXPackage WindowsStore -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
    Add-AppxPackage : Cannot find path 'C:\AppXManifest.xml' because it does not exist.

What can I do to get store app back?

    Hello,

    Try creating a new user account, check if Store is available on that.

    If the Store is still not available, it might be possible that Store app package was completely removed from your system. You can perform repair upgrade to restore it:

    Hope this helps!

    Open start and search for Command prompt and right click on it and run it as administrator.
    Then type the following command:

    sfc /scannow

    Press enter and let it runs.
    You may open start and search for feedback and open the Feedback Hub app and report this issue.
