  1. Store downloads over VPN not working


    Can anyone tell me why downloading apps on the store doesn't work over VPN ? I get the message while clicking the get button It doesn't look like you're connected to the Internet error code 0x800704cf. I am however 100% connected the internet. Everythıng else works. I am using the NordVPN application. I'm tired of always turning the vpn off in order to download something.

    :)

    Store downloads over VPN not working

    Windows store not working while running on a vpn.

    Hey, thanks for the reply.

    Here is a screenshot of the error I get when trying to access the Windows Store while the VPN is running. .

    Other than installing the VPN software, no major changes were made.

    As far as troubleshooting steps.....There were a few. It took a while to figure out the VPN/Windows Store connection.

    • Searched for the error code. Google and Bing.
    • Ran the troubleshooter which found the Store cache was corrupt. Repair didn't work.
    • Posted a question in the community without results
    • Contacted MS support and gave the tech access and he made some changes that appeared to have worked. (The VPN had not launched prior to testing after the restart)
    • More searches and more dead ends.
    • I wanted to check something out in Edge one day and I noticed it was running smooth and glitch free. I clicked the Store icon and just like magic is popped open. I then noticed the VPN wasn't connected. That was kinda the eureka moment for me. All three
      PC's do the same thing. VPN on, no Store. VPN off, Store works fine.
    The issue seems to be isolated to just the Store app. I chatted with a guy who was having the same issue and used a different VPN provider so it's not isolated to one.

    Thanks for looking into this for me.
