    App Store Not Downloading Or Installing Apps

    First off, thank you microsoft for turning solitaire into a competition game, ...

    And because hearts is no longer part of what is installed in windows, I figured I'd hit up the Store app and fetch me one.

    Open the store.
    Search for "Hearts"
    Click on "Games" in the left panel.
    Click on ANY game presented.
    (dot dot dot)
    No install button, no helpful instructions on installing something, nice work.

    There's a button that can be clicked, marked [Free]

    Yea, that works, something happens.

    Dialog pops up, "Choose an account", don't have one, close.

    And, the store stays stuck, never getting beyond the "Working" with the moving dots above it.

    Hope this helps,
