  1. HP Smart App download stuck on 'Starting Download'


    I am trying to download the HP Smart app from the windows store, however it doesn't get past 'Starting Download' when installing. I tried a few random apps on the store and they all downloaded fine so I don't know why it is just HP Smart which fails to download. I have already tried running wsreset.exe and checking anti-virus/firewalls, plus I tried creating a brand new microsoft account but they didn't change anything.

    :)

    Hi,

    One possible reason why your download is stuck may be due to a corrupted file. We suggest that you try the following steps below:

    Method 1: Sign out/sign in

    • Open the Windows Store app.
    • Click on the account logo in the upper-right corner of the app, then click on your account name.
    • Click on you account name in the new box, then click Sign out.
    • Click on the icon in the upper-right corner again, then click Sign in and choose your account name again.

    Method 2: Reset Windows Store cache

    • Click Start, then type wsreset and select wsreset.
    • When the Store app opens, see if your downloads are working.

    Let us know if you will need further assistance.
