    How can I fix downloads on the Microsoft Store. Pending then error.


    Hello,


    I have tried downloading games or apps such as Minecraft and Halo but when I download them an error message pops up on my screen. I go-to system requirements and it says hardware is not found even though I have one of the fastest gaming rigs. I went to another post on how to fix this issue but that uses a PowerShell code that says error and cannot find the Microsoft Store file location. My MSI PC is up-to-date on everything since I got it last year.


    I have tried using the PowerShell code, resetting the Microsoft Store, and rebooting my computer and nothing works. It'll say I need more RAM even though I got 32GB RAM. Including checking for the DirectX version even though I got DirectX12. Under all that it says HARDWARE NOT FOUND.


    If anyone can respond that can help me with this, that will be very appreciated. :

  2. stop pending downloads

    Hi Marknjen,



    Thank you for posting your concern on Microsoft Answer Community.



    Please be informed that the pending download that you see in Microsoft Store are updates for the apps that are already installed and not new apps. You may uninstall the apps if you do not use them.



    If you are facing issues in downloading updates for the apps that you use, we would suggest you to follow the methods mentioned below and let us know if that helps.



    Method 1: Run store app troubleshooter.

    1. Go to settings>updates & security>troubleshooter.
    2. Scroll down and click on Windows store app
    3. It will provide you with the Troubleshooting Report.


    Method 2.

    I suggest you to run the Windows Update troubleshooter it will automatically fix some common problems installing updates and check if it helps to resolve the issue.

    Click the below link

    microsoft store downloads in pending

    Didn't really want to roll back the update. This was on the comments page of the above link. It worked for me. Thanks!

    I had this issue last week. Seems i solved the issue by cancelling the downloads and pending updates, closed store, then wsreset as admin followed by reboot.

    Hi,

    The 0x87AF0001 is a common error in Windows Store, wherein it prevents you to download or update new or existing applications. To resolve this, we suggest that you follow the troubleshooting steps below:

    • Open the command prompt, and run it as an administrator.
    • Type the command: dism /online /cleanup-image /startcomponentcleanup.
    • Restart your device, and check if your query persists.

    We would appreciate it if you could get back to us and provide us your feedback.
