    Microsoft Store install button greyed out


    I recently purchased the Xbox gamepass for PC, and during my installation of several games ran into a problem. On attempting to install Metro Exodus, the install seemed to fail without giving me an error code, and now the install bar is greyed out and nothing happens when it is pressed.

    I have managed to install games before and since this has happened without issue, and a friend on mine had no problem with Metro, but an identical problem with Astroneers, a game I downloaded perfectly fine.


    I am on Windows 10 Home, version 1809


    I have tried:

    Restarting my computer.

    Disabling and re-enabling my VPN.

    Signing out and then into the store again.

    Same as above but with a restart in between.

    Signing out and then attempting to "get" the program, however no "get" button appeared and it seemed to be allowing me to buy it.

    Using MSReset.exe, which produced a CMD window where nothing happened.

    Troubleshooting the Windows Store app through the Windows Troubleshooter, no results.

    Disabling Windows Defender's Antivirus.

    Reinstalling the store via Powershell

    Resetting the software distribution folder via these methods: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/edge/forum/all/microsoft-store-button-grayed-out/d3bbac35-d230-4928-a4d3-b08358828dca?auth=1

    Note that "rmdir C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore" gave a path not found error, and "rmdir C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download" gave a directory not empty error

    All of those methods have produced no change. I am still able to download other games included in the Pass, but not Metro Exodus. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    :)

  3. Windows store installation button greyed out


    Hello

    When I updated my ASUS Tranformer Book from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 Home, I wanted to install certain apps. Some of them didn't work at first because of an error. Then I decided to try to install Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition, but the button was greyed out for unknown reasons. My tablet has got a x64 processor but works on a x32 OS. The game requires only x64 processor according to the specs on the store.

    Thanks already for responding

    Microsoft Store install button greyed out

    Store auto update button greyed out


    Just updated laptop to windows 10 home. Store auto update button greyed out--says contact administrator. There is no other account on this machine except one admin account, and the sign on is with a Microsoft account. Seems to be no way to add any other admin account or sign on any other way.

    What's going on here?
