Microsoft Store on PC

There are quite a few factors that could possibly affect the Microsoft Store (formerly known as Windows Store). We’ve all experienced a Windows Store problem at some point but if you’ve recently experienced a Microsoft Store error 0x800B0100 message when downloading apps, we finally have the solutions.

A couple of days ago, some users revealed that Microsoft Store is throwing 0x800B0100 error when downloading apps. On Thursday, developer Rudy Huyn confirmed that Microsoft Store is indeed showing error 0x800B0100 when downloading certain apps and games.

“A lot of apps have been having this issue since Friday. If you can’t download an app in the Store and receive the 0x800B0100 error code, it’s a bug related to the Microsoft Store app, close it and run WSRESET.exe, it will clean the Store local cache and fix your issue,” Rudy explained in a tweet on Thursday.

“UWP developers, if your application was not downloadable (0x800b0100), good news, first, you did nothing wrong, it was a bug related to the Store. Microsoft fixed the issue and automatically generated a new package of your app (ending with .1000 or .1070),” he said in a follow-up tweet.

According to Rudy, Microsoft has today deployed a fix to address error 0x800B0100 on Store and you can now download apps and games on your PC once again. You can open the Store and you will notice that the app updates ending with version .1000 are available for download.

It looks like Microsoft has generated a new update (package) for affected apps to replace the faulty packages that were generated during the last few days.

Here’s what you can do if you’re still facing the Microsoft Store outage.
