    Ever since I got my new HP Stream 7 less than 24 hours ago, I have not been able to update or install a single app on the thing from the Windows Store. Everytime I try to download an app it's either an error code, server timed out, etc. but there is nothing wrong with my wi-fi. Also the cmd > wsreset.exe does nothing. Any fixes? It's like MS engineered the store to be unusable.

    PS My girlfriend bought a new laptop, same problem. Windows store doesn't let her dl any apps. Help would be greatly appreciated.

    That's a problem for everyone. The error codes are actually viruses.

    MS promised to start curating the Store better, but are they?

    Not sure if it was all the tweaking I did, or because of a different wi-fi connection, but the store seems more stable now. Also downloaded more than 1G worth of software.

    rule #1 in tech problems:

    ITS NEVER USER ERROR. Blame the company, blame the electricity, but never EVERRRR blame the user or the environment.

    General things to try:

    - check time/date/region
    - remove your account and add it again
    - reboot

    Not of use to you at this point, but decided to post it anyways

    Appreciated!

    Haha, touche'. But to be fair, the user usually expects a product to come working out of the box, especially one from a reputable company.

    I remember when Windows 8 first came out, I tried installing a bunch of Windows Store apps. The experience was appalling, most of them froze up and went nowhere, with no explanation as to why they couldn't install.

    I'm glad to see Microsoft finally got around to displaying an error message lol.

    I understand and I'd be frustrated too, but hanging around this place has actually enhanced my knowledge of phones and pc's :D
