    Hi,

    An outdated version of the Windows Store is one of the possible reasons why you are unable to launch any games from Windows Store. To help you resolve this concern, we suggest that you follow the steps below:

    • Select This PC.
    • Click Temporary files.
    • Choose Temporary files.
    • Click Remove files.

    Step 2: Re-register the Store App and check.

    • Right click on Start button on the desktop and select Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Here, User Account Control window pops up and click on Yes to open Command Prompt with administrator privileges.

    unable to download games from app store

    Hi,

    I suggest that you reset the Windows store, follow the steps below.

    Reset the Windows Store

    You can use the steps below to refresh the Store which will clear the cache and refresh your library and permissions.

    • Close the Windows Store app if you have it open.
    • Click Start and type wsreset.
    • Right-Click on the command and click Run as Administrator. If the Windows permission box appears, click Yes or Run.
    • A black MS DOS screen will appear for a few seconds. Wait for it to disappear and the Store will automatically open.
    • Attempt to install Sea of Thieves

    If you have further questions, feel free to reply to this thread.

    Kind regards,

    Leon
