Apps won't install from Platform

From "Get More Apps" menu item, apps will successfully attempt install but don't appear on the Platform when finished. All I get is a pop up window that says "Your new portable apps have been installed and are now available in the Menu". The apps menu pane is empty. I just bought a new 4GB SanDisk thumb drive, formatted it as FAT32. My OS is Win7/64. I tried turning off MSSE but that didn't help. Restarted PC, reformatted thumb drive, still ng.

That was the problem. I was only highlighting the text line. I never noticed the checkbox.

A couple users have done the same before, so I'm going to add a new message for when people do this.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
