Windows Consumer Preview - FIREWALL
« on: March 02, 2012, 01:38:35 PM »
I spent hours trying to figure out why the "Windows Store" would not start, saying not connected to the internet, or applications of the mosaic, I tried to add exceptions in Windows Firewall, but to no avail, I remembered that Avast! also has a firewall, added exceptions and everything worked correctly, the tip is for users and developers.

I hope I could find your tip one day ago, it happened with me, my hair turned gray :), then I just tried to turn off Avast firewall and the store worked fine, would you please tell me which item under "Microsoft" should I adjust its rules, there are 29 one and nothing is telling about windows store.


Thank you so much!
