Microsoft Store error: "This install is prevented by policy." - 0x8024500C

Hi All,

I have a problem in our domain with Microsoft Store. When we're trying to install anything, it gives the following error message:

This install is prevented by policy. Ask your admin to enable Windows Update. Code: 0x8024500C

Additional info:

In the domain we're using a central system to install updates (like WSUS), but we have an OU in our AD, where WSUS is disabled with these group policy settings:
Computer Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Updates:

  • Configure Automatic Updates: Enabled, 2 - Notify for download and notify for install

  • Do not connect to any Windows Update Internet locations: Disabled

  • Specify intranet Microsoft update service location: Disabled

With these settings, Windows Update works, I can download and install Windows updates manually, if the computer account is in this OU, but Microsoft Store still gives the above error message.

It happens on every Windows 10 computers, with all versions we have from 1809 to 20H2.

Are there any other group policy settings which are disabling Microsoft Store, even if Windows Update is enabled?

Thank you in advance,

Csaba

Hi @LeonLaude ,

Thank you for your answer! I've already posted this question on the Community Site, but there I was suggested to raise the question here, as it's connected with WSUS and AD group policy settings.

But now it's posted on both sites, I hope I'll get an answer.
Here's the link to that post:

Kind regards,
Csaba

Hi,
If you want to check the group policies, i would recommend you run command with administrator: gpresult /h report.html.
All the policies for the users you logged on and the computer will be listed in the result.
Check if any settings related to the update.
Best Regards,

Quest for OP, were you able to get to resolution on this question.

We also have GPO to prevent users from download updates from MS, but this blocks App Installs from MS Store. How did you workaround this issue?\

Thanks

Hi,
Unfortunately no, it's still not working on our domain computers.

At my company we are using both WSUS/SCCM and Windows Update For Business to patch our systems. Intermittently, some clients on WSUS/SCCM were reporting this error in the Store. And I struggled with this issue for some time.... My solution (workaround) was to temporarily switch the affected computers from using WSUS to using regular Windows Update / Windows Update For Business. The moment I did that, Windows updates and Store updates and apps started installing. Made sure that everything was up to date and then I switched the PC's back to using WSUS/SCCM and everything was still ok. It's like the Store was not able to reach Microsoft or something like that, which you would normally point to a proxy or firewall issue. But maybe it was just not reading the GPO settings correctly.. Guess I'll never find out...

Hi,
Unfortunately it does not work. This was my first idea too, and I've created a GPO where Windows Update is enabled. On the computers in this OU Windows Update works fine, but Store still does not.

For our case both Windows Update and the Store were not working when this happened. Recently we fixed other computers using this method. Don't have any other ideas though for your case.. :/
