Windows Store game downloads error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,


    I recently had bought a game via a third-party website for a key that was redeemed through the Windows Store redeem menu. After starting the game download I received an error message of (imgur.com/a/x8EIh50, 0x80070422). Stopping and restarting the download didn't do anything.


    While surfing online I noticed a lot of general advice concerning windows appx files such as:


    • Resetting the Windows Update services
    • Re-registering all Windows Apps
    • Using an external powershell module, PSWindowsUpdate to download any extra updates not shown otherwise
    • Resetting the Windows Store through settings
    • Running the troubleshooter which said there were hanging or stopped apps but didn't specify anything
    • Deleting the %APPDATA%\Temp directory
    • Flinging a ferret at Satya Nadella


    None of which worked to resolve this issue. So ?


    * Reset Win Update Srv with dropbox.com/s/ot1kwb78h3rpx3z/WuReset2.0.bat?dl=0

    * Re-register all Windows Apps

    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

    * External Pwsh module, PSWindowsUpdate with
    Install-WindowsUpdate -MicrosoftUpdate -AcceptAll

  • Most MSDN/TechNet forums have closed so while there's no "store" tag you can also try here.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/answers/topics/windows-10-general.html

    or if development related ask here.

    This is where I posted the question and apparently it's an issue with the 2004 version of Windows 10. Rolling back to 19041 allowed me to download the game. After I finish downloading the game I'm going to reinstall the 2004 version though. Also it's worth noting that if you're going to roll back you need to disable all other services that are not Micro$oft related otherwise the downloader will complain.

  • Thanks I will but what's funny is the last time I asked a question that was sort of technical they referred me here.
