    Friend cannot download Sea of Thieves on Windows 10 Store, PC


    My friend is having an issue with the windows store where he can't finish his game download. He started the download last night and it has been stuck right at the very end of the download for a few hours now. Now it has gone back to the centre of the download bar. The download hasn't crashed at all and we have tried multiple of the "fixes" suggested on every forum we could find, but it is still stuck. I'd really appreciate any help we can get, or this was a waste of money for us as we can't play together.

    :)

  2. I cannot download Sea of Thieves on PC from microsoft store.

    Hi Christopher,

    Sorry for the delayed response. We identified this issue regards downloading Sea of Thieves from Windows Store App and we still working on it to fix the problem. As a workaround, we suggest following the steps below:

    • Cancel all existing download on the Store app.
    • Start the download of Sea of Thieves once again.
    • As soon as the download starts, immediately restart the computer.
    • After the reboot, do not launch the Store app instead wait for the passive download which you can check in the Action Center. Then it will automatically install by itself and then open the game without any issues.

    For any results, please let us know.

    This workaround worked for me first time of trying it. I had the same issue as the OP.
