Published December 20, 2013 in Troubleshooting, Windows 8.


  1. I dont have packages key pls help!!!!!

  2. Kapil Arya

    ^^ That’s not possible, the key must be there. Please recheck :)

  3. Great find man this is the irritating problem I was dealing since 2 day, great job. Ty

  4. I don’t have a Repository folder under AppModel. Just SystemAppData.

  5. Kapil Arya

    ^^ You can create it manually.

  6. Me aparece acceso denegado , que puedo hacer?

  7. Kapil Arya

    ^^ Please take the ownership of Packages key.


  8. It says “access denied”…. There always has to be a problem.

  9. Kapil Arya

    ^^ Try RegOwnership:


  10. Fiz o procedimento, porem retornou erro: Não é possivel salvar a alterações de permissão de packages

    Acesso negado
    O que mais posso fazer ?

    Obrigado pela atenção!!

  11. I dont have the repository folder

  12. I did everything and still not working. It said registry editor could not set security in the key currently selected, or some of its subkeys.

  13. Kapil Arya

    ^^ Please refer to my previous comment here.

  14. It doesn’t work. Owner was already System, when I checked “replace all child…” same window “acces denied” pops up again and again. I’ve tried to change owner to my own user account and get back to System for instance, but never succeed… :(

  15. I did what you wrote down and still I get the same fault

  16. Kapil Arya

    ^^ Make sure your system is not the part of a domain. Re-confirm the registry permissions.

  17. The problem started after upgrading the operating system

  18. So after I clicked ‘Apply’ it told me…

    “Unable to save permission changes on Packages.

    Access is denied.”

    How can I get around this?

  19. Kapil Arya

    ^^ Refer previous comments for hint.

  20. Bring up the Windows powershell admin

    Type in the following
    powershell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $Env:SystemRoot\WinStore\AppxManifest.xml

    Go back to windows store and it should re-work!!
