Windows 8.1 - Windows Store - Error Code: 0x80073cf9 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    After a quick Google search, it appears that I am not the only person who seems to be having issues with the Windows Store. Whenever I try to download certain games or apps, I receive the following error message: 

    "Something happened and your purchase can't be completed. Error code: 0x80073cf9"

    I have tried all of "quick fixes" such as recreating the "AUInstallAgent" and "AppReadiness" folders in C:/Windows, along with running the SFC/ scannow through Command Prompts, but neither of these fixed the issue. If anyone could please help me, I would greatly appreciate it.

    **NOTE: This error only appears when certain applications are downloaded specifically "Asphalt 8: Airborne".

  • I get the impression there's been an issue with the app store marketplace all day. Seen reports from friends via Twitter complaining about it, saying it's been down for over 10 hours.
