    Microsoft Store Download Issues Start/Stop, Can not cancel


    I am trying to download The Outer Worlds through using my Game Pass subscription. In doing so, I discovered the download would start at my usual speeds, and rapidly tick down until the download is paused. It would repeat this process every ten minutes, making almost no progress on the download. I have tried the usual methods of fixing this clear store cache, reset store app, reinstall store app, SFC scan and DISM, resetting game services and none of them have worked. In fact, after doing these methods, I now can no longer cancel the download either. If I cancel, it automatically pulls back up and is now stuck on "Checking product files." I have run out of options, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Additionally, this happens with any game on the Store, not just The Outer Worlds. I tried Flight Simulator and it has the same start/stop issue.

    :)

  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.
