    Windows Store pending on large downloads:


    Since purchasing the surface rt, I had a whole host of problems but this one I havent figured out how to go around

    Apps in the appstore over a certain size, say 40 mb refuse to download.... It would start then go on pending if i were to exit the store or if the screen were to lock and sometimes just on its own. The worst thing though is that if i cancel the download... the space that the app wouldve taken up if it were installed is what is missing from my drive.


    Where thereafter I would have to delete the SoftwareDistribution folder every time this occurs to retrieve the space.

    Ive tried so many fixes and nothing works. Ive restored and reset this pc so many times. Sometimes Im even caught in an automatic repair bootloop, but i doubt thats connected.Click image for larger versionClick image for larger versionClick image for larger versionClick image for larger versionClick image for larger versionClick image for larger versionClick image for larger versionClick image for larger version

For some of us with a slow/unreliable internet connection the upgrade may be a real hurdle. Any Idea of the size of the upgrade? Best guess? Might be wise waiting for an ISO file I think, rather than risk the store method.
