Windows Store failed to sync machine licenses. 0x80070490

Q: Windows Store failed to sync machine licenses. 0x80070490

I too keep getting the "Windows Store failed to sync machine licenses. Result code 0x80070490" Event Log Message on one of the three machines I have W8.1 Update 1 installed on. I have done the Sync routine many times and I have "Disabled" the WSRefreshAppsListTask and yet I still get the Event Log Error every day when I boot the system. Seems like there must be something else going on that is screwed up on this system. Help would be appreciated!

Preferred Solution: Windows Store failed to sync machine licenses. 0x80070490

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I get that same Event ID 512 daily or maybe after a restart too. answers.microsoft.com forum has much discussion and apparently someone says Microsoft has it listed in the todo list and expect a fix soon. But.... does it matter If everything works fine ? If you look at the Tast that triggers the error, it says completed successfully.

Seems not right to disable the task just to hide an error.

Hi.

I have (also according to Windows Control Panel > Installed Updates) successfully installed KB2919355 on 13th Apr 2014. So to me, the KB2919355 is in place (and various KB installations after that, too) <- I do get all the Windows System updates (including security updates) BUT not Windows Store application updates.

So the problem is the "Windows Store failed to sync machine licenses. Result code 0x80070490" which pops into Windows Event log on daily basis.



TEMPORARILY fix: running Windows update troubleshooter fixes the problem (it stops and restarts BITS and Cryptographic services) and after a while I get a notification to the Windows Store Tile that there are new updates (if any). BUT after rebooting Windows the problem (Windows Store failed to sync machine licenses. Result code 0x80070490) always re-appears in the Event logs.

Here is the report of successfull Windows update troubleshooter.



Also:

1) running DISM does not help (see below)
2) Going to Store settings and "Sync licenses" does not help

Description:
Windows Store failed to sync machine licenses. Result code 0x80070002

The above is last error that I still have in Event Log. My understanding is that I should sing in with Microsoft store to get rid of this error.
And that is the thing: I am not willing to sign. I never bought anything from MS App Store (which I disabled). So how can I stop this annoying attempts of licenses syncing?

I did some extensive search but could not find any solution to the problem except signing with App Store.

Thank you for any suggestion

A:Windows Store failed to sync machine licenses.

Hello Michal,

If you like, the Windows Store has a ton of free apps as well that you may like to install and use. They are not all pay for apps.

Updates for your default modern apps that came with Windows 8.1 are also updated through the Store.

You could use the method in the tutorial below to sync app licenses to stop the error, but it requires you to open the Store and of course requires you to sign in to the Store with a Microsoft account to do.

I recently used TeamViewer to help my mother install a game from the Windows Store. We both have Windows 8.1 laptops. This was the first time either of us had ever purchased anything from the Windows Store and I was surprised to be notified that our purchase (which was only $4!) had come with an additional 81 (yes, that's EIGHTY-ONE) licenses for the game.

I can't imagine why it would give us 81 additional licenses - 1 would have seemed more than generous - but I'm not going to look a gift horse in the mouth. I really just want to use ONE of those licenses. I already have the free version of that game on my computer. How can I obtain one of those licenses and apply it to my copy of the game to unlock the extra levels that it provides?

Hello RhinoCan,

You would need to sign in to the Store with the Microsoft account that purchased the app.

Hi everyone,

I'm about to rip my hair out. Thank you for clicking on this thread and I plead that you keep reading.

I have the following setup:

250 GB HDD - WinXP 32bit
1TB HDD - Win7 Pro x64
2TB HDD ("1") - Complete System Image
2TB HDD ("2") - brand new unallocated

So here's the story: 1TB drive started failing via the click of death. Was planning for worst case scenario, so created a full system image using Windows built in tool. The image created contains both the WinXP x32 and Win7 x64 drives within a single system image.

Lo and behold, my 1TB drive dies a day after making the system image. No problem I thought.. I have the complete system image and my Win7 recovery disk. I'll just use the image recovery tool on my new unallocated hard drive.

Connected the "2" drive to my primary boot SATA port. Connected the "1" drive to another SATA port. Neither the 250 GB or 1TB are connected anymore. Put in my recovery disk, went into BIOS and changed boot order to disk first. Recovery disk loads, scans for system image, finds it on "1". Gets ready to restore image to "2", click next, restore begins. Then stops 5 seconds later with the following error:

The system image restore failed.

Brink - I get this error frequently. When I tried your tutorial for manually syncing my Store apps, I found that I'm not Signed In to Store. No surprise because (a) I use only a local account on the Win 8.1 Pro 64-bit machine anyway and (b) I have never manually downloaded anything from Store - it doesn't interest me at all.

So I was unable to follow the next steps in your tutorial.

Why is my PC trying to sync with Store if I never go there and I never sign in to it? Is this due to automatic action by the initial tiles in the Metro desktop that I almost never go to? (I boot up into normal desktop, not Metro.) How can I get my 8.1 to stop trying to sync?

Thanks.

A:Why is my PC trying to sync with Store

Hello glnz,

If you mean in your event logs, then it's nothing to worry about since it just means that it was unable to at that time, but will try again later when able.

Even though your are signed in to Windows with a local account, the Store will still sync.

There are many applications and services to Sync & Store Bookmarks of different Browsers online. But I want a user friendly application to Sync & Store Bookmarks of different Browsers on my computer locally. Please share thoughts and sugessions as to how to accomlish this.
 

A:How to Sync & Store Bookmarks on your computer

The point of syncing is to make sure bookmarks on different devices you use have the same set of bookmarks. Syncing with something stored on one computer isn't going to work.
Not all browsers can import bookmarks from a different browser.

You can store your bookmarks locally either by exporting them to your desktop or a USB stick.

Then you take the USB stick with the bookmarks and move from one device to another importing the bookmarks. This requires lots of labor on your part. Exporting the bookmarks at the end of each day, if you have made any changes then going around to all the devices (computers, tablets, cellphones) and importing the new file into each device.

Is there any possibility of changing the store location for sync center? Windows 7 stores the cache on C (I think it's C:\Windows\CSC). The problem is that I need to share a folder which of 20GB and I've got only 16GB free on C.
Any solutions?
I've already read a short guide for windows vista (which probably doesn't apply to win 7 for some reason) - Moving the Offline Files Cache in Windows Vista - The Storage Team at Microsoft - File Cabinet Blog - Site Home - TechNet Blogs. And it didn't really help.

Thanks

Isn't there anyone who can help? You used to be a lot faster when it came to this type of situations. The fact is that I think that not being able to choose where you can cache the sync information is one of the big drawbacks of Windows 7.

Hi there
If I want to download say any free app from the store I get asked - first to confirm my password on the local account -- no big deal with that, then I have to set up a Ms account -- well I can even live with that I suppose --after all I set up a google account to download phone apps

-- but what Galls me is that it says "We need this info to be able to sync the apps across your various devices --- THERE'S NO WAY TO DISABLE THIS OPTION -- I might just want to download the application to a Stand alone PC - I don't necessarily want it synced to 10 other PC's on the Lan or 5 mobile phones !!!!.

I also don't want automatic upgrades too with these types of apps --I've found often on Android that an updated version often performs worse than the previous version or the interface has changed to change the app horribly.

At least with most android applications you can disable a lot of those settings.

Keep your files backed-up and synching together across all of your devices using OneDrive Desktop App for Windows which offers 15gb free cloud storage for each Windows Live/Hotmail/Outlook ID and sells more for cheap.

It can be as easy as dragging anything you want backed up into OneDrive (formerly SkyDrive) folder which lives both on your HD and in the Cloud, which is the gauzy name for MS Servers. But with a few more minutes configuration you'll have your User folders stored in the cloud ready to access on the internet and sync'd to any of your devices.

After trying several methods for over a year I've settled on physically moving the active User folders to the OneDrive folder with the steps in User Folders - Change Default Location.

You can also place the OneDrive folder on any other HD, but be aware that if it is moved from C and you use Win7 Backup Imaging it will force the inclusion of the data drive to which Onedrive and/or User folders are moved since they are System folders.

You can do the same on all your PC's and have one master set of files hosted and kept Sync'd this way by Onedrive, even access them from any device anywhere via the internet, share them publicly, by invitation, or link.

In using this method the only risk is if you'd delete a file or folder and have it sync on other devices before you realize you still need it. In this case the file/folder will be in each Recycle Bin. For this reason I'd uncheck Recycle Bin in CCleaner so... Read more

A:Sync, Backup and Store your Files to the Cloud with OneDrive

Hi Greg,

Sounds like a pretty nifty idea. I've got a similar idea and I'm sure there is a downside to it that escapes me at the moment, but instead of copying why not just change the location of your user's document folder from its default location, i.e. via right clicking on the folder, then properties, and then the location tab and choosing change location, and moving it to within your SkyDrive folder on your hard drive? I guess the down side would be every document you saved, unless you made a conscious effort to "Save As" in an alternative location, it would naturally if a document, be automatically saved in the "Default" user's documents folder, which now after the change in locations would happen to be the newly relocated user's "Documents" folder now inside the SkyDrive folder which gets synced to the cloud and you might not want it in the cloud. That's the only downside I can see. Can you think of others? I'm sure I got to be missing something...

This has been an ongoing issue since my first attempt to configure it on 24 June 2011:
It always reboots @ 10% during the configuration; restarts @ 7% configuring, then fails completely @ 10%.

Conventional wisdom is that you are likely to have to do a repair install of the OS before updating to SP1.
Your CheckSUR log is clear
Your CBS log is regenerating at a high rate - which is not a very good sign - but the SFC scan produced no errors found.
I eventually found the SFC log in the CbsPersist_20130113214718.cab file - 180MB of data generated in less than 5 hours!

Here's a sample of some of the errors in that file.....

I had to reinstall the entire Win 8 OS after 8.1 failed after 24 hours of normal operations- it lost USB support the first time.

So I just reinstalled the OS 8.0. Installed Media Pack. Went to Microsoft site to install Win 8.1. It took me to the store. Soon as I click on Install, it supposed to start download, it says, "Something happened, and install of Win 8.1 could not be completed".

What do they mean, "Something happened?" It did not even start to download.

I did not install Chipset, and VGA drivers from Asus manufacturer because they had different release versions for Win 8 and Win 8.1. I thought- why install them if I can install 8.1 drivers after update. But it would not let me download 8.1. The message appears right away- it has no time to scan anything to even know- drivers were not installed. It just blocks download/installation right away dead. I do not have any antivirus. It did not ask me to validate my Win 8.0 yet- I figured- it knows me as I did it when installed first time OS. I have nothing but OS and LAN driver installed. This is frustrating!

I noticed another problem at the same time.  I was unable to download podcasts through the itunes store.  I tried to update to the latest version (12.2.1) but I was unable to.  It looks like it started to connect to the itunes store then stopped.  I ran the itunes diagnostic and got this message "secure link to itunes store failed".  I did some searching and most places suggested going to the compand prompt typing "netsh winsock reset" and then rebooting.  I did but still have the same problem.  I've done it twice, the first time simply restarting and then turning off and waiting a few minutes and turning back on.  Here are some of the details from the itunes diagnostic:

I have a 2 tb Network store on a 1 gig Ethernet, which worked fine on Windows 7.

I ran the upgrade advisor this facility and software was not identified as a potential problem.

However it does NOT WORK.

It just says it is incompatible on Windows 8.

The Novostore website is not helpful.

There is no useful information as to if or when it will be made to work.

Any help welcome perhaps Robinb9 will know what to do?

Hi,
We're using windows server 2008 and our clients are running windows 7 and if a user logs on. their desktop fails to load. we get an error message saying we're refering to a loacation that doesn't exist (100% it does) and therefore can't load the desktop. The start menu and the home drive will laod fine but the desktop won't.
The strange fix we have found is to;
Enable offline files in the sync centre-> restart. disable offline files -> restart.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

OK, i'd like to make it clear that i'm using the so-called "real" Administrator account that is hidden but can be activated, not a regular account with admin privelidges. At first i was trying to figure out if Metro apps can be used by this account, and it appeared that they cant, but managed to find a trick to enable it. i did it by making sure UAC is on, making sure that FilterAdministratorToken is set to a value of 1 in the Registry, and by enabling "User Account Control: Admin approval mode for the built-in Administrator account" (secpol.msc [Local Security Policy]> Local Policies> Security Options).

So i did a bit more research and toying around, only to discover that although i might have found a workaround for running most Metro apps in general, i discovered that syncing, d/l'ing of apps from the Windows Store, etc is not possible unless you're using a Microsoft account.Please note that any other account with admin privelidges can use the apps without a hitch, as well as any Standard account. So it clearly is not a limitation of just having an admin account, alone.

Also, the built-in Admin is the only kind of account that cant be converted from a local account to a MS Account, all other accounts with admin privelidges can do so. If you look in the Control Panel and try to make changes to the account, you will find that the option isnt available, whereas with other accounts it is. This brings about the issue of not being able to sync or d/l... Read more

A:Use Metro Apps As Admin AND Be Able To Sync, d/l Store apps, etc???

Hello Stephen, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Setting that security policy below to be enabled will basically just turn the built-in elevated "Administrator" account into an unelevated administator account that requires UAC approval to open or run anything that requires elevated rights to do so.

This would be why you are able to open the Store afterwards, but you would still need to sign into the Store with any Microsoft account to be able to install any "Metro" Store apps.
Windows Store - Sign in with Different Microsoft Account in Windows 8

You still will not be able to switch the built-in "Administrator" to be a Microsoft account. It can only remain as a local account.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I've spent hours trying to do a repair install of Windows 10 on a VM Ware Fusion 8.5 virtual machine. The host machine is a mid-2010 iMac. The virtual machine is running Windows 10 Home x64 1607. The reason I'm doing a repair install is because some system files are corrupted and "sfc /scannow" only gets about halfway before it says it couldn't load some resources then quits.

The "Windows 10 installation has failed" message appears not long after starting the installation when it says about 6%.

I've attached a screenshot of the failure message as well as disk manager and the Panther folder which is curiously unpopulated (there's nothing in the two folders shown above). The Panther folder doesn't contain any error logs. However, on a previous installation attempt, I looked at an error log and it showed that it was not able to copy something from the installation disc to a location on C:/windows.

I have installed Windows 10 without problem on a number of other machines, but I'm stuck here on this one. By the way, no external drives or devices are attached to the machine (other than the apple bluetooth trackpad and keyboard which have never been a problem on this and other virtual machines). I've run chkdsk on the virtual machine and the drive appears to be ok. I've tried doing this repair install from the DVD drive as well as by copying the .iso image to the desktop and mounting it in file explorer. The result is the same.

I'm not sure where to ask this, but I noticed that the $319 Windows 7 Ultimate pack says it comes with the 32-bit and 64-bit versions. Does anyone know if this can be reinstalled if a PC is clean-installed at some point, or is it a one-time shot?

Also, any idea how many machines I can put it on if I buy it?

Yes it does come with both, but the key can only be used by either the 32 bit or the 64 bit version, you can not use both version at the same time with the same key, and you can install the full retail version on one PC and reinstall it if you need too.
I hope that helped you.
