I have successfully installed Sitecore Experience Commerce 9 on my Windows 10 machine. Everything is working fine but I didn't see store website which is coming out of the box from Sitecore Commerce Installation.

However, I can see Commerce related items under the Sitecore node and all other application are just working fine i.e. bizfx, identity, minions etc.

Update 1: /sitecore/Commerce/Commerce Control Panel/Storefront Settings/Storefronts content item is there.

enter image description here

But i didn't find /sitecore/content/Sitecore item.

enter image description here

Also, i didn't see Storefront application in SXA Site Manager. enter image description here


Sitecore 9.0.1 rev. 171219 (WDP XP0 packages)


Sitecore Experience Accelerator 1.7 rev. 180410 for 9.0

  • Which installation guide / blog posts have you followed? Your problem is that you cannot navigate to sxa.storefront.com? Is that correct? Commented Jun 20, 2018 at 4:03
  • I am following buoctrenmay.com/2018/03/09/… guide The issue is, i don't find any items related to Storefront under sitecore node in the content tree. Commented Jun 20, 2018 at 6:20
  • Can you update question with screenshot how your content tree looks like especially under these paths /sitecore/Commerce/Commerce Control Panel/Storefront Settings/Storefronts and /sitecore/content/Sitecore. I believe that /sitecore/content/Sitecore is empty. If you navigate to SXA Site manager, do you see Storefront website before "website"? doc.sitecore.net/sitecore_experience_accelerator/… Commented Jun 20, 2018 at 6:32

I think the problem is with SXA version 1.7 that you have used. Based on requirements from Sitecore it should be 1.6 for Sitecore Commerce 9.

Please install SXA 1.6 instead and "Replace all" when asked.

I would also recommend you to use SQL Server 2016 SP1 instead of SQL Server 2017 as your installation might not be supported by Sitecore Support folks.

See more information about compatibility here: - https://kb.sitecore.net/articles/804595

  • I had the same issue and used SXA 1.7 instead of SXA 1.6. You shouldn't reinstall everything from scratch. Just download and install SXA 1.6 package and choose Replace All. Works for me Commented Jun 20, 2018 at 17:16
  • Thanks Andrei for pointing this out. I have updated answer accordingly Commented Jun 20, 2018 at 17:22
  1. Open the script /sitecore/system/Modules/PowerShell/Script Library/CXA - Internal/Web API/CreateDefaultStorefrontTenantAndSite

  2. Add the following snippet before Function CreateCXATenant.

Function Write-Progress {
        [Parameter(Mandatory = $false)]
        [Parameter(Mandatory = $false)]
        [Parameter(Mandatory = $false)]
        [Parameter(Mandatory = $false)]
        [Parameter(Mandatory = $false)]
        process {
        # do nothing
  1. Save your change and run the script in Sitecore Powershell will resolve the issue.
