Some installations of Windows 11 on computers with Apple M1 chip might have non-functional Microsoft Windows Store.
Note: Microsoft Store appears to be present in Windows Insider Preview build 22499 and later. Therefore, before performing the steps below, try installing all available Windows updates, and the store will most likely appear.
Run the virtual machine, and from it, open Powershell as Administrator.

NOTE: Please check the ps1 script yourself to be sure I aren’t installing malware onto your vm.
If you already have Microsoft Store installed in Windows 11 on a Mac with Apple M1 Chip, but it immediately closes after being opened, perform the following steps:
Get-AppxPackage -Name "Microsoft.WindowsStore" -AllUsers | Remove-AppxPackage
