    Sports app error code 0x80073CF0


    I set up Windows 8 on my wife's computer over the weekend. Clean install from an OEM Windows 8 disk.

    When it was up and running the store apps needed some updating. All would update except the Sports app, which gave me a 0x80073CF0 error. I tried uninstalling it but now it will not install at all, giving me the same 0x80073CF0 error code. The app was working, just couldn't update it; Now, install it.

    Any ideas?

    Had this problem too, was able to fix it by doing this -

    a. Open
    Control Panel
    b. Open 'Troubleshooting'
    c. Select 'fix problems with Windows updates'


    Allow it do do any fixes then try installing app again. Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the reply eldougo. I had already tried that based on something else I had read. Didn't work. For giggles I tried it again just now but no issues found.

    Finally someone feeling my pain! Still not fixed here either but since it was on my wife's computer and she doesn't care for the Sports App anyway I've just been letting it ride. I did try a couple suggestions but they didn't work. So I've just been waiting for a possible fix via Microsoft update, if it should ever show up. I've considered doing a clean install but she's so fussy, if I misplace one document I'll get a chunk of coal for Christmas.
