How to fix Emerging issue 70008 in Windows 10

Fix 1 – Download the Microsoft Troubleshooting Software

Microsoft is aware of this problem and has already published a solution to address it. To apply this solution, you need to download and run a diagnostic program.

After you start the troubleshooting program, follow the instructions to fix the error.

Depending on the users, this problem can be solved by creating a new user account. However, it seems that this problem occurs if you have more than one user account on your PC and if so, we recommend you to download and use the diagnostic tool.

  • Open your web browser. After the program window appears in the address bar or in the existing Google search text field you need to enter the following code: cssemerg70008.diagcab

 

  • In the displayed list of results, click on the first element (usually a link to the Microsoft support site). View the information on the page if you want. Finally, scroll down to the Resolution menu and click on the Troubleshooting link to download the desired file.

 

  • Your browser should extract and save the file on Microsoft servers. Once the download is complete, you need to click or double-click on the downloaded item to start it. Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to ensure that the troubleshooting process identifies and resolves the Emerging issue 70008 problem you encountered on your Windows 10 PC.

If all goes well, you may have to reboot your system for the changes to take effect. If the procedure is successful, you can now launch or open Universal or Microsoft Store applications without problems.

 

Fix 2 – Check your antivirus program

According to users (too significant to ignore), the Emerging issue 70008 in Windows 10 may sometimes arise from your antivirus program. Your antivirus program may interfere with some Windows 10 features, causing this problem.

However, you can solve the problem by simply disabling some features of your antivirus program. If this does not help, you may have to completely disable the antivirus program.

In the worst case, you may need to uninstall the antivirus program. If uninstalling your antivirus program solves the problem, the next step is to switch to another antivirus solution.

We recommend also that you perform the necessary procedures step by step to reduce any consequences or inconvenience that may arise.

  • You can start by turning off your antivirus program to see how it works. Open its application, go to its settings or menu, and find the real-time protection feature or a similar feature you want to disable. Turn on any other dominant feature to which you have access, and look at the new status of your PC.

 

  • As usual, you may need to reboot your system for the changes you make to take effect. If nothing has changed (which means your problem persists), you may have to go to more intrusive procedures.

 

  • If you strongly suspect that your antivirus program is causing your headaches, no one can blame you if you have gone uninstalled. Whatever happens, make sure that you follow the installation process correctly to make sure there are no leftovers or remnants of your antivirus program that could cause problems. At the end of the process, you will need to reboot your computer for obvious reasons.

 

When your computer is turned on and Windows has calmed down, you should check that you can now open and run universal applications or the Microsoft Store itself. If all goes well, you will get almost complete confirmation that the antivirus program is responsible for your problem.

But you can’t leave your system without any security or protection. Your current configuration can cause other problems, some of which are even worse than the ones you just solved.

 

Fix 3 – Use PowerShell

To solve the Emerging issue 70008, some users suggest using PowerShell. It is a powerful tool and if you are not careful, you can damage the operating system.

If you want to be completely safe, you must create a restore point for the system before running PowerShell. To solve this problem with PowerShell, follow these steps:

1.) Press the Windows + S keys and type PowerShell. Right-click PowerShell, then select “Run as administrator” from the menu.

2.) When running PowerShell, type the following commands and press Enter after each command:

  • Get-appxpackage -packageType bundle |% {add-appxpackage -register -disabledevelopmentmode ($_.installlocation + “appxmetadataappxbundlemanifest.xml”)}
  • Emerging issue 70008 - Use PowerShell - Step 2

 

  • $bundlefamilies = (get-appxpackage -packagetype Bundle).packagefamilyname
  • Emerging issue 70008 - Use PowerShell - Step 3

 

  • get-appxpackage -packagetype main |? {-not ($bundlefamilies -contains $_.packagefamilyname)} |% {add-appxpackage -register -disabledevelopmentmode ($_.installlocation + “appxmanifest.xml”)}
  • Emerging issue 70008 - Use PowerShell - Step 4

After running all the commands, close PowerShell and see if the problem is solved.

Few users have reported that running the first command solved the problem, so you may not have to run all the commands to solve the problem.

Also, some users have reported that they have solved the problem with the get-appxpackage -allusers | remove-appxpackage in PowerShell, so you might want to try this too.
