    Windows Store won't work with the Firewall Enabled


    So i have a problem with the Windows 10 Store. I have for multiple weeks tried downloading "apps" through it, to no avail. One day i found a thread which said i should disable the Windows Firewall, and low and behold, it worked downloading apps! Now my problem is, to run apps like Halo 5 Forge or other games, my Firewall has to be disabled, else the apps close themselves (or i cannot download stuff from the Windows App Store). My issue in this is, that i do not wan't my Firewall to be disabled all the time, so i would like to know if anyone figured out a solution to this, and WHY i have to disable my Firewall (and again, the possible solution).

    Thanks in advance.

    Did you try to allow certain apps pass thru firewall?
