App store not friends with IPv6

· ☕ 1 min read

I recently had some issues trying to download a game Shadows Of War from the Microsoft Store. Despite a number of google searches including reddit threads, official forums etc, there didn’t seem to be any recommended solution/s (Some places suggested re-installing windows but I wasn’t quite up for that).

I tried looking into task manager and then resource monitor and noticed that store application was making some IPv6 connections but no data was being transferred. I disabled IPv6 and downloading started flawlessly.


This may have just been co-incidence but maybe this post can help someone.
