How to Repair Clipchamp App on Windows 11

Microsoft realized that Windows lacked an official solution for creating videos. So it decided to buy Clipchamp, a free online video editing tool, and started offering it in the Microsoft Store. Clipchamp is based on the concept of web-based tools like Canva, which provide apps but use an Internet connection to provide a smooth editing experience.

But many users have trouble installing Clipchamp video editing tool via Microsoft Store. If you are facing the same problem and want to install and try this free video editing tool, don't worry! The following article will list all possible solutions to fix Clipchamp app installation problem on your system.

1. Completely close and relaunch Microsoft Store

Microsoft Store apps may become unresponsive and may not be able to install apps on your system. So you have to terminate the application and restart it. Here's how to do it:

1. Press Windows Keys + I to launch the Settings application. Navigate to the left menu and click the Apps option.

2. Click the Installed Apps option. Then click on the Search for app option and enter Microsoft Store.

3. Click the three horizontal dots and select Advanced options from the context menu.

4. Scroll down and click the Terminate button. It will end the Microsoft process and close the application.

2. Restart the computer

If terminating the application has no effect, restart the system. It will delete all applications from memory, close all background programs and services, and then restart them. Do not use the shutdown feature because Microsoft enables Fast Startup by default and that does not close system and kernel level processes from memory.

After the computer restarts, launch the Microsoft Store and try to install the Clipchamp app on your system.

3. Set the correct time, date and region

Incorrect regional and date settings may cause Microsoft Store apps to not load content or install apps properly. Here's how to update the date, time, and region on your system:

1. Press Windows Keys + I to launch the Settings application.

2. Click the Time & language option from the left menu.

3. Click the Date & time option and then click the Sync now button.

4. Scroll down and click on the Language & region option in the Related links section.

5. In the Region section, click on the Country or region option and select the appropriate country from the list.

6. Close the Settings application and try reinstalling Clipchamp to see if the error is still there.

4. Clear Microsoft Store Cache

A corrupted or outdated Microsoft Store Cache can lead to problems launching and installing apps. So you have to clear the Microsoft Store app cache using Command Prompt or the inbuilt Reset option.

2. In the left pane, click on the Apps tab.

3. In the right pane, click on Apps & Features.

4. You can scroll through the app list or use the search bar to locate the Microsoft Store app.

5. Then, click the Three-dots menu next to Microsoft Store and select Advanced options.

6. Scroll down to the Reset section. Here, click on Repair if you want to repair the app.

Repeat these steps to sign out and back in in Microsoft Store:

6. Use Winget to install Clipchamp

If the Microsoft Store cannot install Clipchamp, you can try Winget, the command line tool of the Windows Package Manager. The Microsoft Store GUI is certainly more convenient, but you can still find, install, and remove apps using Winget.

1. Right-click the Start button to open the Power User menu. Select the Terminal (Admin) option from the list.

2. Accept the UAC prompt and click the Yes button.

3. In the Terminal window, type the following command and press the Enter key:

7. Wait for the Winget utility to download and install Clipchamp on your system.

8. Close the Terminal window after the installation is complete.

7. Run SFC and DISM . scans

If you are constantly experiencing installation errors in the Microsoft Store, an SFC scan can help you find and replace corrupted system files. You can then run a DISM scan to check the status of the Windows image and repair the component repositories of the Windows image. It will take a while to run these scans and repair your system.

A. To use the SFC, you need to run a single command in Command Prompt. Here’s how:

1. Press Win + S to open Windows Search and type command prompt in the search box.

2. This will bring up Command Prompt in the search result. Click on the Run as administrator option. Run Command Prompt Using Windows Search

3. In Command Prompt, enter the below command, and then hit the Enter key:

SFC /scannow

B. Run the DISM /Cleanup-Image tool from the Command Prompt

1. Press Win + S to open Windows Search and type command prompt in the search box.

2. This will bring up Command Prompt in the search result. Click on the Run as administrator option. Run Command Prompt Using Windows Search

3. Type the following command and press Enter:

  • Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth
  • Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth
  • Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

8. Try Clipchamp's Web Version

The Microsoft Store provides an application that uses an online tool for easy access. If you cannot install the application on your system, the best alternative is to use the website until the problem is fixed. If you're new to Clipchamp, simply sign up for the service and log in with your account. Then you can edit videos online without requiring any application to be installed on the system.

Or you can install Clipchamp's PWA application by clicking the download icon in the web browser address bar. You won't have to open the Chrome browser whenever you want to launch Clipchamp.

Become a video editing wizard with Clipchamp

Clipchamp focuses on simplifying the video editing process and requires an internet connection to work. Make sure you are connected to the network and turn off the proxy server or VPN before installing the application. Repair and reset Microsoft Store and sync the correct date and time. Finally, try to install the app using Winget or use the web version.
