  1. Microsoft Store - can't download games that require administrator permission


    I constantly get "Try again later. Something happened at our end" error. Games that don't require administrator permission are downloading, so this is only the case with the ones that require it.


    Windows is up to date and I'm using administrator user profile.

    :)

    unable to download games from app store

    Hi,

    I suggest that you reset the Windows store, follow the steps below.

    Reset the Windows Store

    You can use the steps below to refresh the Store which will clear the cache and refresh your library and permissions.

    • Close the Windows Store app if you have it open.
    • Click Start and type wsreset.
    • Right-Click on the command and click Run as Administrator. If the Windows permission box appears, click Yes or Run.
    • A black MS DOS screen will appear for a few seconds. Wait for it to disappear and the Store will automatically open.
    • Attempt to install Sea of Thieves

    If you have further questions, feel free to reply to this thread.

    Kind regards,

    Leon

    no administrator permission

    Hi Ryan,

    Let us assist you to have an Administrator permission. To start, follow the steps below to enable the Windows Super Administrator Account.

    • Type CMD on the search box.
    • CMD will appear at top.
    • Right click on it, then choose Run as administrator.
    • Type this command & hit Enter: Net user administrator /active:yes.
    • After you enable the Super Administrator account, log out on your existing account then log into Super Administrator account.
    • On the Super Administrator account, you can now create an Administrator account or give Administrator permission on the existing account.

    After you created an Administrator account, we suggest that you disable the Super Administrator account by following the same steps and using this command:
    Net user administrator /active:no.

    Let us know how it goes.

  4. Microsoft Store - can't download games that require administrator permission

    not able to download games from store

    Hi,

    There are several possible reasons as to why you're encountering issues with downloading games from the Windows Store. Here's a list of the common factors:

    • Your account may be restricted from downloading games that are inappropriate for your age.
    • Games you're trying to download are not available in your current region.
    • Corrupted app data
    • An outdated Windows 10 OS

    For us to determine the root cause of this issue, kindly answer the following questions:

    • Are you getting any error messages?
    • Are you using an adult or a child account?
    • Is the Microsoft account you're using in the Windows Store app the same as your Windows 10 user account?
    • Are you using an administrator user account?

    In the meantime, we suggest running the Windows apps troubleshooter provided on this

    link
    . This can help resolve issues with downloading and installing games from the Windows Store.
