To fix this issue, I had to undertake several steps. To help others, I grabbed them all together in a list below. If you have the same 0x0000194 error, simply follow these steps. After each possible solution, try to see whether the error was fixed. For your convenience, I put the most plausible solution on top. 🙂
Oh, please leave a comment. Whether your issue was fixed or not. I’d love to hear from you 🙂

1. Sign out and sign in to the Store

The very first step is to sign out and sign in again. To do that, click on your profile picture (right top), click on your account name (1), click Sign out (2), click Sign in (3) and sign in again with your password.

Run the Microsoft Store App Troubleshooter

Although I’m not very keen on using Troubleshooters from Microsoft (they often don’t work), this one might help you to fix error 0x0000194. In your start menu, start typing Troubleshoot (1). Click on the result Troubleshoot settings (2). In the new window, scroll down and click on Windows Store Apps (3). Then just follow the wizard.

Reset the Microsoft Store

Sometimes simply resetting the Microsoft Store may also fix your problem. To do so:

  1. type wsreset (1) in the search box of the start menu
  2. right click the search result (2) and click Run as administrator (3)
  3. A new window appears. Wait a few seconds. When the window vanishes, try to open the Microsoft Store and download or update your app

Check your date and time

Incorrect date and time may also lead to an error in the Microsoft Store. Although by default date and time automatically synchronize with a time server, it’s good to check. A virus or malware may throw root in the food 🙂

Re-register or reinstall Windows Store Apps with Powershell

Try to re-install Microsoft Store. No worries, you only need to run a powershell command as administrator.

  1. Click Start, type powershell in the search bar
  2. Right click Powershell and click Run as Administrator
  3. Type (or copy paste) the following command and hit Enter
    Get-AppXPackage | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
  4. Once the command is completed successfully, reboot your computer. After restarting your computer, the Store problems should be fixed. Don’t forget to add this webpage to your favorites. Just in case you want to come back for further guidance 🙂


There are a lot of possible solutions for this store app problem. Unfortunately there is no 1-minute fix, but hopefully one of these fixes helped you out. If that is not the case, please leave a comment. I’d be happy to help since I know how frustrating this issue can get.
