Microsoft Store missing from Windows 11 insider preview

Occasional Contributor

I have recently installed the latest Windows 11 Pro insider preview (ARM version) in a VM on my M1 Mac with Parallels Desktop.  Windows seems to run fine, but the Microsoft Store app is missing.  There is no icon for the Store, and the Store doesn't appear in the list of Apps in Settings.  


How do I get the Store installed?  Thanks!

Are you able to find the Feedback Hub app?
If yes, try open it and report this issue.
Are you using Dev or Beta channel?
I have reported the issue in the Feedback Hub app.

I'm using Dev channel. My current build is 22463.1000
I have the same issue. My current build is 22454.rs_prerelease.210903-1516


I´ve a similar problem. The microsoft app store appear, open, but doesn´t charge. Below you will find the screen that appear when i open the microsoft app store, whit the error code. Someone have any solution for these?

Thank you for filing the report and Windows team will investigate and resolve the issue.

What I had to do was to do a clean install with the 22000.194 build. Then I had not only Store but all the other Windows apps that my build was missing. At the same time, I was able to select the Beta or Release Preview channels. I chose Release Preview and opted out of the Windows Insider Program so I could get on track to have the official Windows 11 releases.

How did you get your hands on previous builds vhd files of win 11 on arm? @downeaster59
