Desktop Bridge apps not installing from Store.

No matter what app I try to install on one system which works correctly otherwise, I get error 0x80073CF9 on Centennial apps. All other UWP apps install correctly, it’s only Desktop Bridge apps.

Everything works correctly on my notebook, and my other desktop running 15031, it’s only on this particular system, which is on 14393.693.

I really really don’t want to have to reinstall again. I did it last week after the system powered down in the middle of an update.

    <p>Have you tried and in-place upgrade / over the top install?</p>

      <p>Not yet. I won’t have much free time until next week, but I’ll give it a shot then. I might also try switching to Insider fast ring. :D</p>

        <p>I would say insider fast builds are pretty buggy at the moment so you may be jumping from the frying pan into the fire.</p>

          <p>I’m very well versed in the Insider builds, but 15031 has been pretty decent so far. I’m just class A annoyed at this install. Only major problem I’ve had with 14393 (that wasn’t my fault!)</p>

    <p>I would give it a few weeks and a couple of reboots for it to magically fix itself.</p>

    <p>Happened to me the same the desktop bridge apps weren't getting installed from store no matter how many times I tried so I switched up to<strong> </strong><a href="; target="_blank"><strong>Tutuapp</strong></a><strong> </strong>store which is also available for Windows. And successfully installed it without hassle. Maybe some bugs or temporary glitch with store.</p>

      <blockquote><a href="#116865"><em>In reply to appspopo:</em></a></blockquote><p>Desktop Bridge was bugged in the Anniversary Update, and despite that getting fixed, things were still broken. Works fine in Creators Update. </p>
