Win 10 Store 0x80070057


I am trying to download apps like Messenger or Feedback Hub for example but Windows Store returns following message: "Try Again. An error occurred. The error code is 0x80070057, in case you need it.". I have tried WSReset.exe, I have also tried adding a folder called "cache" in following location:


Which by the way worked, but didn't fix the problem when I ran the troubleshooter. The troubleshooter can't fix the problem, because it can't fix the problem automatically and returns "X Windows Store-cache may be damaged". Is there any fix so that I can update apps and install new apps again?

I have also tried following:

Windows 10 store error when Starting Download

And ofcourse a lot of youtube videos on how to solve the problem, but unfortunately nothing worked.

Edit: There is no output from today when I last tried to install in eventvwr.msc -> Apps and servicelogs -> Mircosoft -> Windows -> (AppxPackagingOM -> Microsoft-Windows-AppxPackaging/Operational or AppXDeployment-Server -> Microsoft-Windows-AppXDeploymentServer/Operational).

I understand you have already done Clear & Reset Windows Store Cache using WSReset.exe.

You could also try to Re-register Windows Store Apps :

  1. Create a System Restore Point first, just in case
  2. Press Windows + Q, type powershell and right-click Windows PowerShell from the results and choose Run as administrator.
  3. In the PowerShell window, type the following command and hit Enter:

    Get-AppXPackage | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
  4. Once the command is successfully executed, close Windows PowerShell and reboot.

Sometimes a single app can be the problem, and the answers here helped a little but the app that was causing me trouble is called Cybereason Ransomfreeware against ransomfreeware attacks to the computer. Disabling it for 1 hour made it possible to install apps to the computer again.

Edit: The application got updated which solved the problem.
