Default Cross device app market issue!!!!

So I recently started getting back into windows product. I bought a Microsoft surface tablet, it seemed like the greatest thing until I spent 3 days trying to figure out why I couldn't download apps. I kept getting an error 0x802000e(something like that) code. I finally gave up and returned the tablet. Now I have a Toshiba satellite c75 series laptop with 8.1 on it, and I discovered I am having the same exact issues. Any ideas why I cannot download apps?????

Neither one of those devices is a phone, so... why are you posting in the phone forum?

Do not private message me with questions that should have been posted on the forum! Not only are you wasting your time - I'm not going to bother writing an answer to such a question for only one person - but I will probably block you from PMing me in the future as well.

Sigh... 1130 posts here and you haven't found the "report thread" button yet? That's how you get something to the attention of the moderators, who have (among other things) the ability to move threads.

Or you could just close this one and open one in the Windows 8 (not Windows Phone 8) general forum. Here, have a link: http://forum.xda-developers.com/windows-8-rt/general

Bear in mind that XDA is a developer forum, not a tech support forum. You'd probably be better off asking on Microsoft's forums, where they have people who hang out there all day just to answer such questions... http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows

EDIT: Oh, and what's with the four exclamation marks? There's probably just something wrong with your Microsoft account (formerly, "Live ID"). It's not like you encountering this problem is some super-critically-important topic that a huge number of people are going to care about.

EDIT 2: Let me guess, you never bothered to read the number 1 rule of the forum, either? http://www.bing.com/search?q=download+app+0x802000e (look, Bing even knows that you mangled the hex value). Oh hey, first hit goes right to that Microsoft Answers forum I mentioned earlier... http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/w...7-0e6f028c1d9a

I never said it was "just for developers", I said it's a developer forum (not a tech support forum) and I doubt you'll find anybody of significance on the site who disagrees with that. I didn't say you *couldn't* ask tech support questions (so long as you don't use the App Dev / Dev&Hacking forums to do it, at least), I said you'd get better results at a tech support forum. I even gave you a link, in case search engines are too hard for you. Then I even went and found you a thread discussing your problem on said Q&A forum

For my trouble, I get called a "dick" by somebody who, according to the number of folks who can be bothered to push a button on a forum, has contributed a bit more than 1/38th as much to the site despite having a somewhat older account. Have you considered the possibility that experienced folks don't like being treated as if we're unpaid tech support people because the people asking the questions are just plain ungrateful sometimes?

Hope you like the links I gave you, because I think I'm just going to block you in case you show up again with more "HURR DURR GOOGLE IS HARD" questions.

okay stop being so rude towards him please

And if you search the error code on Microsoft's support site, you may find an answer.

There's also the possibility that your internet could be at fault.
HTC One V (August 27th 2012 - August 3rd 2013, still own) -> LG Nexus 4 (August 3rd 2013 - January 11th 2014, still own) -> Nokia Lumia 520 (January 11th 2014 - present)

I'm not as active as I used to be. I still show up from time to time.

Sorry but I don't take being disrespected like that, I'm obviously not a "noob" I've been on this site for years and have had very very very many devices.

I researched the error code but nobody ever reported a true fix.

And back to the argument, I already said I made a mistake by accidentally posting in the wrong spot, I'm using tapatalk and it's not always the clearest.

Regarding insults, stop being a hypocrite.


Ontopic:

The error means that the destination drive changed.

Quote:
1. Press windows key+C .Charms bar will come up click search and type cmd and hit enter.right-click Command Prompt, and select Run as Administrator.

2. Click Continue or provide Administrator credentials as needed.

3. In the Command Prompt window type the following and press Enter after each line:

net stop wuauserv
ren %windir%\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.OLD
net start wuauserv
exit
This seems to be the only fix I have seen for this error and was included in one of GoodDayToDie's links.

The only other cause I have heard of is a firewall issue, in which case if it is happening across multiple devices I presume your router has a firewall setup which is interfering.
