    Or they can search for powershell in START and run it as admin. either way works just fine. I'm glad I could help with the Dependencies, it took me a while to find them all haha. If you install the dependency once on the computer you don't have to do it a second time.

    I know, you get that sometimes, to fix it, uninstall the app you want the .appx from, install it again, go to TokenExtractor click Refresh and after that on Dig for appx URLs, select the last one and Download :D

    I know I've asked this a couple of times already, but can we somehow use this method for the WinStore app itself so that we can just use it?

    I tried that at first :( couldn't make it work yet... this is Ok too, at least we can install apps on leaked builds that don't allow us to access the store

    Misaki, about this winjs.appx, do I need to try out all the 7 files one at a time, or it could be packaged? tks.

    Try to install the Store appx without a dependency, if it needs a dependency it will give you an error and say what version of what JS you need. After that error you can try again to install the Store appx but this time with the required dependency :D

    OIC, tks. Because on reading the technet papers I thought there was a way to combine them into 1 single file. :D

    Ah no, just do what I said and everything will be OK :D I also updated my first post with a tool that can allow you to install these appx and dependencies without you having to go through commands.

    Maybe attach your appx here for us to try, or upload to file-share site if it's too big. :D

    then it should work without a problem... try to copy/paste the tokens.dat first then install the .appx and please make sure you have installed the app properly on the OS that you got the appx and tokens.dat from, otherwise it won't work :(
