    Can't download or update apps from Windows Store.


    When I try to download Metro apps from Windows Store, I receive an error message saying "Something happened and this app couldn't be installed. Please try again later. Error code: 0x80010108".
    I Googled it and tried to reset Windows Store cache by wsreset.exe but it didn't help. It occurs to every app I try to install. Please help!

    Hello, SDhamija.

    Most of these are default-installed apps upon OS installation. Did you uninstall them and then reinstalling? What do the details say? Do they all give the error code 0x80010108?

    You may want to try running these:

    Uninstalling and reinstalling apps didn't help... The app just didn't get installed and displayed the same error code... BUT, the problem went away on it's own after an hour or so... . I did nothing else... just tried again after sometime... and it worked..! btw..., thanks for trying to help..
