    Microsoft store starting and stopping game downloads constantly


    Downloading State of Decay 2 off the Microsoft store and the thing just stops waits like a minute, downloads a couple MBs then stops again. No other game does it, I searched the forums and tried all the suggestions I could find. In fact I have downloaded more for Forza Horizon 4 in the amount of time it took to write this than after 2 hours of downloading State of Decay 2. Can someone help me fix this.

    :)

  2. Microsoft Store stops downloading games.

    I bought state of decay 2 and the Microsoft store starts the download and completes around 30mb before it stops. If i pause and resume it will download another 30mb. I downloaded a free game separately and that one went through all the way. I already used
    the Microsoft troubleshooting program and it fixed a cache issue in the store. How can I get state of decay to download all the way through?

    Microsoft store app stops downloading

    Hi,

    An outdated Store app can cause issues with downloading games. We'd like to learn more about your concern so that we could provide the proper resolution. We just have a few questions for you:

    • Which build version of Windows 10 is on your computer? To check, click
      Start
      , type winver, and press Enter. For example, 14393.1066.
    • Are you using a third-party antivirus program?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    As an initial recommendation, we suggest that you download and use the
    Windows app troubleshooter
    . This tool will automatically find and fix common app errors in Windows 10.

    We'll wait for your response and the result of the initial troubleshooting.
