you absolute legend! freaking finally able to download gears of war 4 after 2 hours of pulling my hair out.

thanks bro this really worked <3

I feel like this is a form of DRM.

Thank you! You know more about the Windows Store than Microsoft does lol

Thank you! I would have never worked out that PowerISOs virtual drive was preventing me from updating apps on the app store

I know this is kind of late, but if anyone is getting this error and is running PowerISO, you need to disable any virtual drives. Start PowerISO, go to Tools > Virtual Drive > Set Number of Drives > Disable. This solved the problem for me.

Hi Kevin , I found your articles very interesting and would love to try them out, but cannot because it can’t connect to the internet. I get a message unidentified network, no internet connection. I have windows 10 and I get message (problems installing some updates) and the error code is 0x80070015. I also get a message that I have no ethernet, but it is plugged in. I have tried rebooting, shutting down modem and router and nothing works. I have no where to turn, and it’s been like this for over 2 months. Please offer some advice, I’m not real computer savy so your help is much appreciated.

Randomly came across this comment after months of having this issue and trying all the other options I found in other articles and in this one. I had already given up on the Microsoft Store and wasn’t going to look back. This! Is the only thing that fixed my issue. Thank you!
