MS is obviously non ready for prime time. Windows 10 is an interesting oddity, but if one can't get the store to work, one can't really use the product. Inexplicable error messages, and support people making random suggestions of the "swing the chicken over your head" ilk, denotes an immature product. I couldn't find any info in the event logs related to this....no useful information whatsoever....if you don't log info when an error happens, how would you ever expect to solve it?

Back to Android, I think....

I call BS..... I just got the Surface Book,, new install, its activated, the cache was reset and I beg to differ that the servers are overloaded. This all happened right after this thing did OS updates. Its an OS update causing this Store issue. I didn't have this issue before the damned thing updated. My other PC that has 10 on it has the same issue. A friends with 10 has the same issue,, see the pattern. MS needs to get their heads out of the sand and fix these issues.

This info was way more informative than the techs at MS. All they advise I'd to restart machine and run updates. MS really needs to be on top of these types of things. I switched back from Apple but honestly not impressed with store-level service or online service. Seriously considering an iPad pro now. Disappointed in my SP4.

Sure it is... People at Microsoft Customer care has not been able to deliver upto the mark. They really need to up their quality.

But i am glad that you liked this piece of information right here, i hope this must have solved the problem for you.

Windows is simply fleecing thousands of customers out of thousands of dollars. They don't care. What? You're going to sue? AHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAH

I tried all the suggestions, date/time, reset the store, time zone, even the three line long command line that should have totally checked out the system - still get "Acquiring licence" then try again. I even tried a desktop right after a fail and the desktop worked so it is not busy servers. I finally solved my problem by going to "Settings" selecting "Update & Security", then "Recovery" and what I consider the nuclear option "Reset this PC". Be warned that you will have to reload all your apps that you have loaded, but it solved my Store problems. Len

Hi Micheal, I would like to know if your Windows is activated or not. I have seen users unable to fix this error when their windows is not activated.

Thanks Len for your input and letting us know what helped you with this error. Resetting the Store or changing locations/Date & Time have worked for few and others have failed.

Resetting Windows will most of the time solve almost all errors but one might not want to reset the system everytime a error pops up.

This should be the last option for anyone who desperately wants to solve the issue. Thanks you.

Go into settings, update and security, and make sure everything is updated, along with everything else. If all else fails go for the nuclear option. Lol. Good luck
