Hello whateverman, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The Windows 8 Store is a feature only for Windows 8 to be able to install Store (Metro) apps in Windows 8.

You cannot add it to Windows 7. The Store apps will not install or work in Windows 7.

Sorry.

Hello Robin,

Multiple accounts are not allowed.

What's your old account's user name, and I'll be happy to merge it under your new account's settings and name.

EDIT:
Nevermind. I found you "robinb", and merged it to "robinb9".

LOl I thought so, I was about to loose my mind when I saw I had joined since 2009, I figured you must have helped me out here.

I think Microsoft had the idea of an app store before anyone.
If you ran Windows Xp and never looked at the Start Menu, you would see a link called Windows Catalog. That would had taken you to the Microsoft Store, where you'd be able to browse some random Microsoft software and some hardware. Obviously, it was totally under-developed to be what we know now as...
