Preferred Solution: Why is my Windows apps store showing error 805a0193 in Lumia 535 when downloading apps?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Why is my Windows apps store showing error 805a0193 in Lumia 535 when downloading apps?

Indications are that this code most often occurs when local Microsoft Servers are having an issue... Although other indications state Localized to South Africa router protocols... I'm not sure which camp you fall into so I've linked a couple of items to try and help.

Hello to everyone.

Since Windows 10 1607 update I am driven crazy with this error (0x800070005) which appears when I try to download new app.

Old Windows Store apps are working normally, but I can't download any new one. I tried several solutions I found on internet, without success:
1) powershell and command prompt commands for manual resseting store
2) WSReset.exe
3) that WIndows Repair software that is often mentioned
4) Changing permisions on packages folder, WindowsApps folder etc...

Not a single solution worked. I tried system restore, but once system updates to 1607, it starts again. It is clean Windows 10 install...

Only thing that worked: I made other account, local one. On that account, I logged in Windows Store with my normal account I otherwise use. On that local account, signed only to Windows Store, I can download apps normally. When I return to my standard account, I can install only apps that I downloaded to my local account before - but not other one...

Except reinstalling whole damn thing, migrating account to new one would maybe help... But it is a little too much to do now, so is there any other solution that I maybe missed? I really can not believe that I have to reinvent wheel (to create new my account) just to use damn Windows Store normally?

Thanks in advance!

Answer:Windows 10 store apps not downloading

Seems like a lot of users are currently experiencing this issue. You can try the method below.Press Windows + R keys on the keyboard.Type wsreset.exe in the open box and press Enter.Check if it takes you to a store page which displays that the cache has been reset.Now try to open the store app and check.Apparently the servers are overloaded at the moment (which is possible).Source: https://www.reddit.com/r/techsupport/comments/3f1j4c/getting_this_error_0x803f7003_in_windows_store/

So today, as it is all over Windowscentral, some of the MS core apps and VLC for Windows 10 got their updates. However, they are stuck at 0% and showing no signs of progress. Do you guys have the same problem and how to fix it? I've tried cancelling them all, rebooting and download on at a time but it was no use. Many thanks.

Two weeks ago my phone started to behave weird. I can't update any app or download any new one, it says "waiting" for all of them, I've tried with wifi and 3G without success.
Also i noticed when I tried to update the maps, it says there's no connection, but it's actually connected to wifi or 3G.
I dont want to hard reset the phone because I don't want to lose my mix radio+ account.
Is there a way to delete cache or something I could do besides the hard reset?

Hey guys,
I'm having a very strange issue with my Windows Store app, I'm not sure what is causing this issues but I'm turning to you guys for some help.
Any Apps I try to download or update from the Windows Store download extremely slow, and I mean like SLOW. Every time something is getting ready to start, it just sits at 0.0MB for however long it feels like. It can be minutes or it could be hours. I thought something was broken but I can't figure out what.
I went as far as doing a system reformat and starting from scratch just to be sure and even then this issue is still here.
I'm running Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview 10532 on Desktop and 10.0.10535.1004 on Mobile, and yes this is happening on both, not as bad on my but it's gotten terrible on my PC, it use to download anything in seconds, now nothing.
My mobile device is the Lumia 1520 and my PC Specs are
AMD 8350 (4.0Ghz)
16GB DDR3 RAM
AMD R9 290
1300Watt PSU
I'm at a lost and here is some more info.
On my wife's PC and phone (1020) running on the same network (PC very similar setup) Isn't having these problems. I'm starting to think that maybe it's possible either a setting is being used that I have no idea is and is causing the issue or even possibly something with my account is causing this issue.
Thought I would come here first to see if maybe anyone has some suggestions as I've not gotten anything from Microsoft just the typical sfc/scan and so forth...
Thanks for any help!

Not sure if this is the correct folder.

Updated to Windows Anniversary - no problems.

However, now I have the problem as stated in the title.

If I turn Windows Firewall Control (v4.8.3.0) off the apps download and install fine. With WFC active store reports an error and no download.

Answer:Windows Firewall Control Blocks Store From Downloading New Apps

Is there a way to set 'Windows Firewall Control' to allow you to see exactly what it's blocking? That way you can then create rules to allow items to make outbound connections?

Unfortunately, I've never used Windows Firewall Control, so I'm going to be of little help to you on this front. However, with the Anniversary Update, the Windows applications listed at the bottom of this post need to make outbound connections, which is different from pre-Anniversary Update.

If 'Windows Firewall Control' uses the native Windows firewall, then potentially you could run Command Prompt as Administrator, paste the following into it and hit enter. That will add these outbound allow rules directly into Windows Firewall. Alternatively, you can look at the program locations listed below and see if you can manually add them to an allow list in 'Windows Firewall Control'. The main one that is probably blocking store programs from downloading/installing will likely be installagentuserbroker.exe.


Code:
netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name="+ Windows - InstallAgentUserBroker" dir=out action=allow program="%SystemRoot%\System32\installagentuserbroker.exe" enable=yes profile=any remoteport=80,443 protocol=tcp

I was given a Windows 8.1 tablet that once had a detachable keyboard which the guy lost. he reset the whole computer and after I got my information on it instead. After the reset, Windows was no longer activated and I had to reactivate it. which neither of us knows why, it was activated before we did a data factory reset. after I created my user, I installed a bunch of exes. now I go to try to see if I could test out the Windows Store to search for apps. but I search "Windows Store" or "app store" and several other things that may bring it up, but it always says, "no apps match your search" like if the Windows store is missing or somehow magically removed with the reset process.

Last night my Lumia 925 randomly locked up (which it seems to do quite often) so I did a soft reset and then noticed a bunch of problems.
First I noticed a bunch of my app tiles were blank or only displaying the app name. That happens from time to time when apps are updated or decide to lose track of the day. So I tried to go in and refresh them. But a lot of them wouldn't open. Others will open but crash immediately, and others still will open and display their info but won't update their live tiles. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling some of them but it has had no effect.
In addition to apps not behaving, various settings windows won't open. I thought maybe my phone updated and the update was buggy, but I can't check because Extras+Info crashes before opening.
Also, in my app list the first 4 apps are things I did not install, and don't look normal. @{Miscrosoft.BingTranslate, @{Microsoft.MSBatterySaver, @{Microsoft.MSCalendar, and @{Microsoft.MSPodcast. Pretty sure none of those are supposed to be displaying that way.
I didn't attempt to install anything. I've been running 8.1. I don't know if there was an update pushed out last night that I didn't notice installing.
But my phone isn't working and I am frustrated.
Anyone know what's wrong or have suggestions?

I have two phones. 720, 830. 830 has the official update of windows 10 mobile. While 720 has the same update but via inisders. (i left insiders and hence it updated to the official version.)
The problem is, since three days, i am unable to download any any apps from the store on my 830. Cannot update either. I mean it gets queued for download. Starts download. Acquires licence. And then just shows error.
Error code 0x80070006.
I do not know what this means. I restarted my phone, signed out and signed in again in the store, even soft reset my phone twice. No use.
Nothing gets downloaded.
On 720, it seems to work perfectly.
Can anyone help? What should I do?

Hi,
I have to take care for multiple computers for our youth work. It are windows 10 computers with multiple local users (administrators). Computers are clean installed at the beginning of this year.
Windows 10 makes me very unhappy, cause very often Store apps stop functioning. I?ve had troubles with the photos app, the calculator app and the store itself. A user starts the pc and calculator/photo or store app does not work any longer. The app is found in the search result, but it?s icon is white. And under it the text ?desktop app?. No joke: the store pretends to be a desktop app.
I read some other posts on your forum about not working apps or not working store. But ?my? apps and store think they are desktop programs.
When there are problems not all the users on the pc have the problem. Mostly it?s okay for one user, and for all the other users it is corrupt.
I found a work around: make a new user. And for the new user all apps work.
But I get a fulltime job creating new users and giving the user?s documents and settings back.
Does anybody know a way to PREVENT the loss of functionality of the modern apps?
Does anybody know a way to REPAIR the broken modern apps? I found some Powershell magic on the internet, but that did not help.

First off, thank you microsoft for turning solitaire into a competition game, ...

And because hearts is no longer part of what is installed in windows, I figured I'd hit up the Store app and fetch me one.

Open the store.
Search for "Hearts"
Click on "Games" in the left panel.
Click on ANY game presented.
(dot dot dot)
No install button, no helpful instructions on installing something, nice work.

There's a button that can be clicked, marked [Free]

Yea, that works, something happens.

Dialog pops up, "Choose an account", don't have one, close.

And, the store stays stuck, never getting beyond the "Working" with the moving dots above it.

I have apps installed from the Microsoft store on my laptop but they don't show up on the start menu to be able to pin to the start menu. They also don't show up under the "All Apps" area. Is there a way to force apps to show up so that I can pin them to the start menu?

Twice now I've had pinned apps disappear from my start menu - for example, I pinned a game & the notepad to the start menu. Then when going back to the start menu later, they're gone. I have repinned them in a different spot on the start menu & they seem to be staying now - is this normal?

Answer:Store Apps not showing up in Start Menu

I believe that you have to be logged in under your MS account to use/see Store Apps. If you have a local login, I believe that you can't use/see them. If you switch from one to the other(MS account to Local), this could be the problem.

Hi there,

My apologies if this has been covered already, however I did a quick search and couldn't find anything that directly applied to the general issues I have been receiving.

Let me just start off by noting I noticed this issue persisted whilst I was using Windows 8, (8.1), and I figured that it would be resolved once making the transition to Windows 10.

The issue I have been having is the Apps that I have downloaded from the Store, such as Netflix and Twitter, are not appearing on the Windows 10 Menu (and previously Windows 8). In the store they say that they are already downloaded and installed, and yet, they do not appear.

The second issue I have is I am not receiving the App notifications where the message pops up in the top right corner accompanied by the sound. Again, this stopped working suddenly when using Windows 8 and still does not work. For instance, my email notifications aren't popping up. And yes, I've gone to Settings > Notifications and everything is selected properly.

I feel like I am not getting the connectivity I am supposed to get with both, previously, Windows 8 and now 10. I am unsure why these functions stopped working.

If you could provide any help, it would be greatly appreciated.

So as usual my ex husband promised my daughter something he didn't deliver. He had said for over 6 months he was going to get her a phone. Finally did. (said he had to wait to add her, turns out it's Prepaid, lol) Then says he is going to get her into a new phone he bought which was an actual smart phone (8X) as apposed to her basic one. Months later it finally arrives. I activate it (wasnt new, it was his gmas old one on another carrier) and no matter what I do it gives me an error message once it tries to have me sign in, in order to download off the app store.
1. He didnt think to call and inform AT&T about her switching phones. Obviously kind of important. So that has been done.
2. He never verified her email since she is underage. Thats done as well.
3. All the APN setting were wipped so i called to get those. She does finally get MMS.
4. Took into the store and also talked with tech support for ATT about 10xs.
5. Ive tried multiple other emails that have been used for years and still will not allow it.
Im at a loss and this poor girl has been waiting months for this to get straightened out. Of course dad wont help or bother so I really dont know what else to do.
This is the error message: " Can't connect, We're having a problem signing in. Make sure you have good reception. If you do, the problem may be on the other end. Wait a little while and try again."

Answer:Windows 8X. Cant get apps from store. Error message. No one seems to be able to help

Let's rule out reception as an issue. Are you on Wi-Fi? I'd try on Wi-Fi to make sure it's not the carrier that's causing the problem. What carrier are you using? Second, you have to use a legit Microsoft account to access the store. Outlook.com, hotmail.com, etc.

2- Run the WSReset.exe as administrator

3- Gain full control over packages folder using the advice here:
https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...6b0107a?auth=1

4- Control Panel/Troubleshooting/View All/Windows Store Apps/run troubleshooter. The troubleshooter did a few things and also ran WS reset and reported the Windows Store cache may be damaged.
I tried to uninstall and reinstall one app but it refused to reinstall so I had to use system restore to get it back. I am the only user logged on as the administrator.

Is there anything else I can try? Your advice would be appreciated.

Answer:My Lumia 535 WP8.1 is not downloading apps on mobile data. what to do ?

Welcome to Windows Central.
The L535 is limited to 3G connection only and mobile data speeds, therefore, may also be greatly limited. Could you test the bandwidth of your current mobile data connection, e.g. by using Microsoft's Network Speed Test app (try downloading this over Wi-Fi first).
Other solutions you can try are:
- restart your mobile data connection (by turning on Airplane Mode and then turning it off again)
- move to a location (near the window, avoid places with a lot of concrete) that has better signal reception
- place the upper part of your phone on top or near a large metallic object (tried this for several phones and it seems to work sometimes, not always) - the antenna of the L535 is in one of the upper corners of the phone

Having a little trouble here with downloading apps from the store.

I'm getting an error: "Something happened and your purchase can't be completed. Error code: 0x80244022". This is for a free app.

I've Googled and very little comes up. I've performed the Windows Store Reset as well as the Windows Update Repair (despite Windows update working properly) to no avail.

One site suggested converting the user account to a local account from a Microsoft Account, but that didn't work either.

Any tips would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Answer:Windows Store Error - 0x80244022 - Unable to purchase apps

I am having the EXACT problem you describe. It seems to have started within the last few days. The weird thing is that it started not only on my laptop but also on my desktop computer at approximately the same time. Both are running Windows 8.1. That would suggest it is Windows Update-related or perhaps account-related.

Please do reply if you find a fix and I will do the same.

I cannot install anything from Windows Store. It will down load normally & then fail with error 80073DOA. Updates to Apps also fail to install with the same error. I have run wreset ( several times) but still no joy. Date & Time Zone are correct.

Windows Firewall must be enabled to allow the Store to Update & Install!
Found this by accident. I was running the Firewall that came with Norton Security. Why this is a requirement I don't know. Disabling the Norton Firewall was easy but there was no option to turn the windows Firewall back on as Norton had taken over so

At first i was trying to figure out if Metro apps can be used by this account, and it appeared that they cant, but managed to find a trick to enable it. i did it by making sure UAC is on, making sure that FilterAdministratorToken is set to a value of 1 in the Registry, and by enabling "User Account Control: Admin approval mode for the built-in Administrator account" (secpol.msc [Local Security Policy]> Local Policies> Security Options).

So i did a bit more research and toying around, only to discover that although i might have found a workaround for running most Metro apps in general, i discovered that syncing, d/l'ing of apps from the Windows Store, etc is not possible unless you're using a Microsoft account.Please note that any other account with admin privelidges can use the apps without a hitch, as well as any Standard account. So it clearly is not a limitation of just having an admin account, alone.

Also, the built-in Admin is the only kind of account that cant be converted from a local account to a MS Account, all other accounts with admin privelidges can do so. If you look in the Control Panel and try to make changes to the account, you will find that the option isnt available, whereas with other accounts it is. This brings about the issue of not being able to sync or d/l... Read more

Answer:Use Metro Apps As Admin AND Be Able To Sync, d/l Store apps, etc???

Hello Stephen, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Setting that security policy below to be enabled will basically just turn the built-in elevated "Administrator" account into an unelevated administator account that requires UAC approval to open or run anything that requires elevated rights to do so.

This would be why you are able to open the Store afterwards, but you would still need to sign into the Store with any Microsoft account to be able to install any "Metro" Store apps.
Windows Store - Sign in with Different Microsoft Account in Windows 8

You still will not be able to switch the built-in "Administrator" to be a Microsoft account. It can only remain as a local account.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hi
i do prefer a local account
but when i try to install new apps from app store
w8.1 asks me to switch to a microsoft account

can i install apps with a local account?
and how can i understand if i have a local account or microsoft account

thanks

Answer:can i install apps from apps store with a local account?

See the screenshot below for selection you have to make for not to convert your local account to a Microsoft Account:

Windows Store - Sign in with Different Microsoft Account in Windows 8

Screenshot from tutorial Skype App - Use with Local Account in Windows 8.

You of course need an email address (Microsoft Account) but it will only be used for the app in question (Windows Store is also just an app), so in the next dialog either give an existing Microsoft Account credentials or select Sign up for a Microsoft account to create a new one to be used with Store app:

Your Windows sign in account will remain local, it will not be converted to a Microsoft Account.

Ok so I am trying to figure this out. We have the store disabled through group policy, but would like to give access or deploy a store app to a certain set of users. Is there a way to do this through group policy or just by doing a few steps? Ive been searching around but I cant find anything. Any help would be great, thanks!

Does anyone know how to clear out deleted Windows Store apps from the computer? When you go into the Windows Store and right click and choose 'your apps' the selection 'apps not istalled on this pc' still shows apps that I have deleted. I only installed on one device (unless they auto-install to the xbox360 also?). I cannot see how to clear out previously deleted apps. See attached pic to see what I am talking about.

Thanks!

Answer:Clear Deleted Store Apps (ie apps not istalled on this pc)

My Top Ten reasons Store Apps are preferred over Desktop Apps
I know what you're thinking. How can a store app be better than a desktop app? Well, the title doesn't say "better", it says "preferred". Read the list, and I'm sure you'll get an idea of the difference I'm talking about.
10. A store app has the capability to do everything a desktop app can do, IF the app developer works at it.
9. Universal Windows Apps are safer. They are obtained by using the Store, and you don't have to worry about viruses from the store apps.
8. Store apps do not slow down your system over time the way Desktop Apps can. They don't use the registry, and don't leave behind traces of files that never get cleaned up like many bad behaved desktop apps do. Reinstalling the OS every year can be a thing of the past.
7. Uninstalling a store app leaves NO traces behind and no clutter in your registry. It uninstalls everything contained it the sandbox for that app. Cleaner uninstall. With Desktop apps, you have to use a 3rd party program to track down and eliminate the traces, and sometimes accidentally kill files that other programs were dependent upon.
6. New Universal Apps for Windows 10 can scale to different screen sizes, resolutions, and DPI better. Desktop apps often become unreadable or unmanageable when attempting to scale to different DPI settings, and often the text on buttons will be cut-off or displayed incorrectly.
5. You can use the input of your choice using Universal Windows Apps. Apps b... Read more

Answer:My Top Ten reasons Store Apps are preferred over Desktop Apps

Some great points.
How about Buy it once and deploy it across devices?
I purchased NOAA Hi-Def Radar for my phone. LOVE the Live Tile. LOVE it. So handy to just glance at the tile without entering the app and you have a radar picture. My house is even "pinned" as a red dot.
Bought it for the phone. Now it's on my Desktop and my RT tablet for free. Super value.

I want to organize the All Apps list on the Start Menu, but I need to get rid of the apps that clutter it up. I would prefer to do it without replacing the start menu with something like Classic Shell and I don't want to delete all the apps, so I've been attempting to find a way to remove the contents of shell:Appsfolder from the start menu.

I was hoping I could receive some insight into how exactly the Start Menu works. I know that the All Apps list appears to be a combination of three different directories:

shell:Appsfolder
%AppData%\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

Which leads me to believe that it might operate similarly to other system folders like This PC and Libraries, but I haven't found anything that seemed useful in the registry so far. I would appreciate it if someone could help point me in the right direction.

Hello, i'm having an issue with downloading apps from win 10 store.

That is bassicaly what i get every single time.
Now i have posted a topic on Microsoft Community forums, but it's dragging along and my feeling is that that reply that i got is the only one that i will get.
They did provide me with steps to follow, first two didn't find/fix any issues, third one i couldn't execute due to an error which i don't understand and therefore cannot fix on my own. Any help would be appreciated.

Answer:Windows 10 Store Apps/Games Download Failing (Error Code 0x80080207)

Hi there! I have been experiencing the same issue, but to avoid wasting time, I simply gave up for simpler games from the App Store. My best find till date is this arcade platformer: https://itunes.apple.com/en/app/elec...963759829?mt=8 and you won?t find it anywhere else, not even on play.google.com! However, do note that the Windows 10 Store: http://www.microsoft.com/en-u.s/store/game does come with some pretty cool games! It?s sad that it just isn?t working as planned right now. I would have loved to try Gameloft.com?s Modern Combat 5: Blackout on Windows 10. It will hopefully happen soon!

I'm running on w10 TP build 10149 on my L920. When I searched for the apps like modern combat 5, overkill they were not shown on both the store apps. When I tried to install them through browser both the store apps shows apps are unavailable to download. Any workarounds there?

Answer:Apps unavailable on w10 mobile store apps

Are these apps region locked? If so, changing the phone region to US might help. You can always go back to whatever it was, once the apps are installed.

When I set default storage space to SD card, the apps doesn't get installed, and same is the case when the apps are moved from phone to SD card in Lumia 535.
Checked for OS updates, but is of no use.
Any solution, please help out

Answer:Why the apps doesn't work when the apps are moved to SD card in lumia 535?

Did you make a soft reset? Just press volume down + power button for 10 seconds and it will reboot.
Another option you have is install the apps manually, via .xap files
If anything else fails maybe a hard reset is needed but that would erase everything in your phone.
