Unfortunately, why the error  0x8024500c occurs cannot be exactly stated. Apparently there are problems with the Windows Store and therefore the following two steps should be performed.

Clean up the App Store cache

With the command wsreset “, which you execute in an MS-DOS command prompt with administrative rights, the cache of the ” Windows Store ” is reset.


This may mean that the problem with installing new Windows 10 apps or updating the apps is resolved. If not, then the following step must be carried out.

Starts the “Command Prompt (Administrator)” using the key combination “Windows key +“ X ”” and then executes the following commands.

Dism / Online / Cleanup-Image / CheckHealth
Dism / Online / Cleanup-Image / ScanHealth
Dism / Online / Cleanup-Image / RestoreHealth

DISM is a command to enumerate, install, uninstall, configure, and update features and packages in Windows images  and should succeed in this error. Then you should restart your Windows system and run the installation of the Windows apps again or update the apps.

User profile is broken

The third possibility is that the user profile of the user of the Windows 10 system is simply defective and thus there is an error message  0x8024500c when editing the Windows App Store . To test this, you should simply create another user in your Windows system, log in as this user and then try installing the app or updating the Windows app.

If it works now, your Windows profile has unfortunately been damaged and should be set up again.
