Today I wanted to share a tip for any sysadmin can encounter. It’s for the Windows Store app and the GPO.
I stumbled into a environment that blocked the Windows Store to work, after multiple test I found that you really need the Windows Firewall at On to be able to restore the Windows Store.
The culprit in my case was a GPO that set at Disabled that settings;
It took me time to figure it as the machine was using a third party firewall’s solution, so the computer was not alerting me at all that the firewall was missing, and the store app just refused to open without any error.
