Some More Problems connecting windows 8 App STORE

Most of you have followed my previous post about connecting to app store behind proxy and from the feedback and comments I was happy to hear that people were able to access app store and install apps.
Still some people were not able to connect and some people connected but could not install apps.

INSTANCE #1: Network icon in taskbar has yellow exclamation mark.
Solution: Try to get rid of the yellow exclamation. Even if you can access internet from your browsers (say Internet Explorer) App store will not work. Follow the steps to get rid of exclamation mark.
Step1: Change the internet proxy settings to some other proxy, which has internet access, from your room IP, which was in IE. Use 202.141.80.?? in IE.
Step2: Then open command prompt (with ADMINISTRATOR privilege) and type
          netsh winhttp import proxy source = ie
Then the proxy will be changed to some proxy with internet access.
Step3: Restart your computer. Now you are free of the yellow exclamation.
Step4: Change the system proxy to your room IP again and run the above command. Now enjoy your access to the App STORE.

  1. I am still facing the problem in activating the software. I had installed build 9200 version of the software. The activation is not happening with the help of the phone call.

    1. It can be activated through phone call. While using phone call enter the numbers continuously without break or if you are talking then pronounce clearly.

    1. There is a problem with dotnet 3.5
      It already has a higher version 4.0 installed.
      I do not know for sure but
      goto windows features there turn on dot net 3.5
      worked for me.

  3. I am turning on the .NET in the features, then it is going to downloads and starts to search the feature in internet. Eventually it fails as ours is a proxy server and it does not find the right connection. The error shows unable to connect to the internet

  4. As far as i know, .NET 3.5 comes packaged with the Win8 ISO file. Just mount the iso file using Daemon Tools Lite or any other mount manager you are using (even a bootable USB stick containing Win8 will work). Now run cmd.exe as administrator and give the following command:
    Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFx3 /All /Source:F:\sources\sxs /LimitAccess

    Note that in the above command in the part 'F:\sources\sxs' the drive letter (F: in this case) needs to changed to the drive letter of your mounted Win8 ISO file or the USB drive containing Win8.

    Basically the above command is the exact same thing as enabling the .net 3.5 feature (as point by Deb), but in the command line version of it you could point to a location of the setup file rather than the installation trying to get the contents from the internet. I hope it works for you.
