I'm evaluating Microsoft 365 Business Premium on a couple of Windows 10 devices and have noticed that the Microsoft Store is now "blocked by your system administrator". The devices are joined to Azure AD and enrolled in Intune.

 

I can't find any mention of the Microsoft Store in any policies, other than a rule for blocking it on mobile devices. Mine are both desktop PCs. Is it possible to allow access to the Microsoft Store again and, if so, how can this be done?

Thanks, but it's neither of those. I've even tried creating an AppLocker rule to specifically allow Microsoft Store but it's still blocked.

This is something to do with the setup wizard which "secures your Windows devices", either adding them to Azure AD or enrolling them in Intune. None of the applied policies appear to affect Microsoft Store, though.
