  1. Second solution worked for me!

  2. This did not work for me. First, my need to run WSReset.exe was due to the Microsoft Store suffering an app install problem. The Store app was working fine, but suddenly one day it would fail to download games. They would hang at “downloading” and eventually throw an error. I paused, deleted, then reselected apps but the same problem would happen. When I attempted to run WSReset.exe, the window would sit idle, not showing any activity. And nothing changed. The only way I could get it working again was by following the solution here:

    From the admin command console, enter:
    PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Command “& {$manifest = (Get-AppxPackage *WindowsStore*).InstallLocation + ‘\AppxManifest.xml’ ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest}”
