  3. Problem with launching games from the Microsoft Store!!

    Is it possible to open the Microsoft Store, open an app or
    a game and then have it downloaded and launched?
    Unfortunately I cannot do the above steps and launch the apps and games. When I try
    to open them I receive an error message 00008.
    Please help cause I cannot resolve this issue by myself

    Unable to Launch Apps or Games from Microsoft Store

    From since last week, I have been unable to get any game or app downloaded from Microsoft Store to launch. Previously they worked but now when I try to run them or launch after a reinstall, the page that should open up briefly appears and disappears in
    the same moment. I have tried several of the suggested fixes that were suggested in the forum but none seem to work.
