    I've looked for an entire afternoon to try and figure out a fix to this issue, and have tried WSReset.exe and even uninstalling and reinstalling Microsoft Store. I am trying to launch Forza Horizon 5 but due to Microsoft Store being messed up and it giving me an error code everytime I launch/install something, it won't let me play it. I have tried resetting it in the settings, and troubleshooting the Microsoft apps but nothing will work. WSReset is stuck hanging and won't help at all and I have hit a brick wall. I have tried commands in powershell and command prompt but nothing helps at all. The error code I receive is 0x80080005.

    The Windows Store won't let me play anything

    Hello, first it's a pleasure to be able to help you today.

    My name is welcome to the community.

    Hello glowyj, have you checked if you have the latest version of Windows installed, at 21H2, because recently came out the latest update to Windows 10 and 11?

    See which version of Windows 10 you have

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/see...

    Updates are often seen as optional, Microsoft released major fixes this week, and make sure you have the Xbox Companion App installed.

    If you haven't updated yet, click the link below, update, and make all subsequent security updates.

    Download Windows 10

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-downlo...

    Download Windows 11

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-downlo...

    Also, make sure all Xbox Apps are up to date in the store, and make sure you have the Xbox Companion App installed, it works with the Xbox App.

    Xbox Store will not let me download games

    Hey there,

    Which specific game are you trying to purchase, and does the error pop up if you try to purchase the game on Xbox.com? Additionally, do you receive an error code that looks similar to 0x00000000 or XBOS-0000?

    Keep us posted!

    Won't let me buy anything on the store

    Hey Amanda,

    Thanks for posting on the Xbox forums. We need a little more information to make sure we provide the correct solution. What kind of payment method are you attempting to use? What is the error message or error code that appears when you try to purchase
    the item? Are you trying to buy items on an Xbox One, Xbox 360, a mobile device or a Windows 10 computer? We recommend attempting to complete the purchase from a different device like a cell phone or tablet. Just make sure you are signed in to the Microsoft
    Store with the account that you wish to purchase the item(s) with. Be sure to let us know the results
    Amanda!
