    Downloading an app from the store


    Hi there.


    I recently tried to update a game I already had on my Window (dell) laptop and had problems, so uninstalled the game. I have since been to the Microsoft store again to reinstall the app/game and play again but every time I try to download I get this message:


    Code: 0x80072F8F


    Please help!

    :)

  2. Windows 10 Apps from the store wont download

    Hi Sumon,

    Sorry for the delay in response.

    • Do you face this issue only with these apps?
    • Did you try downloading other apps?
    • Did you try stopping these apps and then downloading it again?
    We would suggest you to try the steps mentioned in the link

    • Type troubleshooting in the search
      box
      and hit Enter.
    • Click View all from the left pane and select Windows store apps.
    • Follow the on-screen instructions and check.
    If the steps don't work try these steps:

    Try to reset the Windows store and check.
    • Press Win + R on the keyboard to open run Window.
    • Type wsreset.exe to reset the Windows store cache.
    Hope this information helps.
