Can't install Facebook in Metro

    Can't install Facebook in Metro


    I just picked up an Asus B121 tablet and Windows 8.1.1 so far seems to work quite well. This is my first time with that update. I like the changes except I don't like the boot into desktop by default.

    I can't install Facebook on the Metro screen. It's stuck on pending. I have waited a while and it just sits there at "Pending". I have tried to change usernames in the store, I have successfully downloaded other Metro apps. I have cancelled the request several times and tried again to install it. Same problem.

    Could this be because my tablet has no rear camera and therefore I am nor meeting some app requirement? If so you think it would tell me that.

    Anyone else have any other idea or reason why it won't install?

    Hello orlandotek,

    Clearing the Store cache will often help with this.

    Hope this helps for now,

Facebook apps have never performed very well in Windows Phone 8.0 or in Metro (either 8.0 or 8.1). The latest hiccup has been if someone posts one image that appears on my timeline, it puts 3 different copies of the image all bunched together (as if the poster had posted the same image 3 times)....

I have a friend with a tablet that asked if this was possible. Did a search and do not see the answer. Is it possible. It is a dell venue 8 pro. Thanks Edit- It is on 8.1 with the update. The registry fix that worked with 8 does not work.

When you download an app from the Microsoft Store how do you change the install location? There are no options shown whatsoever. :O
Just recently, opening photos in Facebook causes the annoying theatre view to open beneath the previous page, obscuring the photo. Has anyone else experienced this? Unless something has changed in the last Win8 update it must be a Facebook thing.
