    Default Not all apps showing in windows 8 store

    Hi, hope it is the right place to write my question.
    My problem is that me, my and my cousin are using window 8 pro from dreamspark but when i saw my cousin store he had a lot of apps if compared to mine.
    He has cut the rope for example and i do not have it.
    So, i do not understand why the difference.
    I downloaded the OS saturday and he downloaded it sunday but i cannot believe that this is the reason.
    This is how i see my store:
    untitled.jpg
    While in his store there are more apps and under "free" there is another box (i don't remember the name of it)
    Any advice?
    Thank you

    Your installation is probably corrupt. Try starting over. Download the ISO file again, slow burn it to a DVD and Custom install again.

    Many of these strange problems have been fixed with a new installation. You ISO file was probably corrupt when you downloaded it.

    Oh my...
    I burned it with the slower speed so it should be the iso itself.
    There are no other ways to fix the problem?
    Idk, for example, is there no repair of window 8 without re-installing all of it?
    I JUST finished to install all programs, files, to sync all my accounts etc.
    lot of time i would like to save
    In the meanwhile i'm downloading it again

    A Repair or Refresh or even Reset will only work if the basic ISO is correct. Did you check the Sha-1 Hash when you downloaded the ISO file?

    After you finish the download, check the Sha-1 Hash (I use Hash Tab. Once you download the file and install it, right click the ISO file. You will see a new tab under properties)

    You can use this new DVD to try a Repair Install.

    Be advised that a Reset will not save your apps, a Refresh will, but these will only help if the basic ISO file was good.

    I will check the Sha-1 Hash when the download finish (never done, it is nice to learn something new ).
    I don't have the oc i used since i ve installed the iso trough a usb pendrive and i've formatted it so i cannot check if the basic iso file was good.
    In the end i do believe it is best to /format .

    The Custom Install will almost always give a more pristine installation than an Upgrade. Win 8 is far better than all previous OS's in the Upgrade, but. . . . . how pristine is the original OS? Any little problems will get carried forward and can be magnified. Whether you use a DVD or Flash to burn the ISO file to, check the Hash first.

    So, i've just finished and i still have the issue. Same as before and the dvd i used to install the OS was a different one (the one my cousin used).

    Dunno what to do...

    Did you check to see if your H/W is compatible with Win 8? I have no other ideas at this time.

    I don't believe it but i found why :
    depends on which language is set my win 8.
    For example, if i use italian, it shows the screen at the top of this topic.
    If i add english (united kingdom), for example, it shows like this:
    untitled.jpg

    So, do i have to add all the languages to have all the apps?

    EDIT: and my cousin installed win 8 with english and not italian(just asked)
