    Here's what fixed errors 0x800704cf and 0x80070005 in the Microsoft Store for me. It might not work for everyone, but it is what fixed them for me.


    Error 0x800704cf:

    Description:

    Error 0x800704cf is when whatever process or thing can't connect to the internet properly. It'll usually say something like "You'll need the internet for this" or similar. Usually it happens even when your internet connection is good and works for everything else. It can lead to you not being able to install apps or even being able to sign in to the Microsoft Store.



    Fix:

    For me, I fixed it by signing out of my Microsoft account in settings, then signing back in.


    Error 0x80070005:

    Description:

    Error 0x80070005 happens when you don't have proper access to do something. It can happen when trying to install/download products from the Microsoft Store. It can happen even when your account is set as an admin.


    Fix:

    I fixed it by signing into the default administrator account. You can switch accounts by opening the start menu, clicking the person icon, and clicking on the account you want to sign into at the bottom

    :)

  2. Error 0x800704cf in microsoft store

    Hi,

    As per the error message, your internet connection might have something to do with the error code 0x800704cf. The anti-virus on your computer can also be the culprit here. However, let us not assume anything yet until we isolated your concern. We suggest
    that you download and run the Windows Store App Troubleshooter. Once done, check if the issue persists.
    You can also check if the Store works in another user account. If the issue
    still persists, we suggest to reset the Microsoft Store. Here are the steps on how to do so:

    • Press the Windows key + R on your keyboard, the type in wsreset.exe.
    • Hit Enter to proceed.

    You may reset the Store a couple of times before checking if the issue persists.

    Let us know the result of the troubleshooting steps provided above.
