    Will I have to pay again if I reinstall a paid app that I uninstalled?


    I paid and downloaded for the Age of Empires Definitive Edition from the Microsoft Store. I was planning to uninstall it because I am not using it right now (got bored playing with the game) and it is taking up a huge space (17 gig) in my Surface laptop 2. I might, however, reinstall it again in the future if I feel like playing it again. Will I have to pay again to download and reinstall it?

    :)

    Uninstalled app can't be reinstalled.

    I was having trouble with an app. The developer suggested I uninstall the app, then reboot, the reinstall it. I uninstalled the app. I rebooted. I went to the store to reinstall it and the store says it is already installed and provides a "Launch" button.
    But the app is NOT installed. It doesn't show up in the list of apps. And clicking the "Launch" button does nothing.

    So now I am stuck with a paid for app that I can't get reinstalled.

    How do I get around this?

  3. Is there any way to reinstall a paid app without paying for it again?

    Hi,
    I bought Gooroovster on 4/5, and downloaded it to my LG Quantum. Today, I am transferring over apps to my Lumia 900, but for some reason Gooroovster only shows up as a trial instead of a paid app. I double checked my e-mail & bank statement, and I did
    in fact pay for the app. Is there any reason why my phone is only giving me the option to try or buy instead of reinstalling?

    Thanks!

    Is there any way to reinstall a paid app without paying for it again?

    Thanks.. I did use the method on that thread to get most of my paid apps back. Will I have to pay again if I reinstall a paid app that I uninstalled? :) For some reason this app prompts me to pay again versus asking would I like to re-install like the others. :\
