  1. Windows Store error 0x80070005


    I'm trying to install games using the new XGP, and while some of them install fine (played through half a dozen now) there's a few that refuse and I have no idea why.


    We'll focus on one in particular, Slay the Spire. I try to install and it immediately errors: 0x80070005


    I've run into a couple others as well, like Banner Saga, same thing. But then others install and work just fine. No rhyme or reason to it. Can't figure it out.


    This happens either through the windows store or the new XBOX beta app for the XGP... neither works.

    :)
