    Hello Len,

    Did you disable the Window Firewall service by chance?

    Double check to make sure the Windows Firewall service is enabled and running.

    Win8: App: Modern: Modern UI Apps fail to install with error 0x80073d0a if the Windows Firewall service is disabled

    Hope this helps for now,
