With Game Pass Ultimate I have started using windows store for games (many 10s of Gbs), but have found the store incredibly frustrating. Recently it has straight up broken and I can't seem to fix it. I'm turning to OCAU because the school of google hasn't provided anything that works. Regular issues with the store: Difficult to sort download priority. Downloads would often stall even if the machine was left idling with the store open. Downloads only stall in WS, everything else on my machine downloads just fine. If updates stall and cannot be resumed the only choice is to keep resuming (which fails), or cancel the update WHICH COMPLETELY UNINSTALLS THE ENTIRE GAME!!!!! Game downloads seem to able to controlled from both Windows Store and the Xbox (beta), but aren't always in sync. For instance, a cancelled (hung) install in one might still show as paused in the other. Updates will often hang and take multiple attempts to restart, if they do at all. Most recently I have had updates to Gears Tactics, Gears 5, and Ori and Will of the Wisp fail. Cancelling (which in itself is broken and takes multiple attempts to accept) does eventually - as warned - completely unintall the game. Gears 5 failed at a ~1Gb update and then uninstalled the entire 81.25Gb game. What madness is this Microsoft? This would be bad enough on it's own, but now trying to reinstall those games from scratch all stall within seconds of starting. It seems to be a weird cache issue, because when I start the download it shows the speed racing up to 200-300Mb/sec (well above my internet's actual speed of 60mbit) but quickly plummets and stalls without actually downloading anything. This is apparently a common problem, but nothing I have tried has worked. Per google recommendations I have: Re-enabled UAC Logged in and out Tried using a different account Changed DNS Run wsreset from Admin CMD prompt (countless times), and confirmed the caches are being cleared Reset the app from Apps and Programs Used Powershell to "reinstall" Windows Store I do not have peer-peer enabled for the store. I have a Win 10 Home install, 11 months old and otherwise running perfectly. 60mbit down, 30mbit up. No firewalls. Steam, Epic, Origin etc all download similar size titles without issue. Other titles will download, it's just the ones that have previously bugged out during and update and then uninstalled that cannot be re-downloaded. EDIT: Scratch that, apps download, but games won't. Just tried to download Deliver Us The Moon (7.6Gb) to a SSD with 190Gb free and it timed out. "We couldn't connect you to the service." Error Code 0x800704C6. EDIT Part II: Followed this guys advice at reddit. Didn't work. Left Xbox app uninstalled for the rest of my fault finding as it wasn't needed. Decided to reboot into a test Win10 (and almost completely vanilla) install I have on a 100Gb partition. Same damn problem. Finally decided to try the VPN thing again, but this time set my region to USA. Holy shit, that worked (but is about half my normal speed). WHAT. THE. FUCK. MICROSOFT. To be clear, my Windows is set to Australian region, my MS user account is set to Australian region, my Xbox profile is set to Australian region, my GamePass is bought from Australian region. None of this makes sense. Is there any chance my ISP is causing a problem (iiNet)? I can't imagine it is, because I had already tried the VPN thing with region set to Australia (Sydney) and it didn't work.
