    So i was using dism /remove-provisionedappxpackage to remove most of the preinstalled apps from an offline Windows 10 10162 image, except for the Windows Store, however it removed the Store's dependency Microsoft.NET.Native.Framework.1.0 and Microsoft.NET.Native.Runtime.1.0 as well, rendering it useless.

    Does anybody know a workaround?

    If you leave at least one appx that uses the Microsoft.NET.Native.Framework.1.0, the store will work fine.

    I guess someone in MS Labs forgot to register the Store dependency to the Framework. I hope that it's resolved in a newer build.
