    cant install purchased game


    Hi There.


    I recently purchased some the Witcher 3 game from the Microsoft Store.


    However, when I click, "Install on my Devices" I get a small pop up screen that says, "It looks like you don’t have any applicable device(s) linked to your Microsoft account. To install, sign in on a device with your Microsoft account."


    I used my laptop to sign in and make the purchase. It even appears in the device list. However, I am still unable to download my purchase.

    .Any help you could give would be appreciated.


    Thank you!

    :)
