I mostly avoid using the Windows 8 apps, but I wanted to download 8.1 and the Microsoft Store app isn't connecting, it just gives me an error message about a possible server error or connection timeout. I tried another app or two and none of them can connect.

My regular browsers work fine from the desktop as does Steam, so my PC is connected to the Internet. I even tried turning off my security software just to make sure that wasn't a factor. I can't figure out why the apps aren't connecting.

I have the same problem, can't install anything from the Microsoft App Store... Not that I really wanted anything, I just figured I'd try netflix.

I'm probably going to install Windows fresh when I get my new SSD next week, so that may fix the issue, but what if it still doesn't work? I want to figure out the cause.

My Internet works, the Win8 apps don't seem to notice.
