Unable to uninstall a Windows Store app permanantely RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

     I am Rahul Navi Manthiran. I have Windows 8.1 ProWMC installed on my computer. I downloaded Endless Skater from Windows Store. As it was buggy, I uninstalled it in order to reinstall it. After uninstallation, the app disappeared from the Start Screen and I went to the store to reinstall it. It displays that it is installed. I found the following method to uninstall Skype using PowerShell. I tried to do that while I got the following message:

    PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> Remove-AppxPackage C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.EndlessSkater_1.0.0.142_x86__8wekyb3d8
    Remove-AppxPackage : A positional parameter cannot be found that accepts argument

        + FullyQualifiedErrorId : PositionalParameterNotFound,Microsoft.Windows.Appx.PackageManager.Commands.RemoveAppxPac

    Please help me to fix it and the link I referred is:
