While downloading a game from MS Store you may see this Error Code 0x80073D0D on your Windows machine. This error code, like other error codes, associated with the Xbox app, usually appears when the user tries to install some app or game. So, if you are seeing this error code, follow these fixes to quickly solve the issue.
Fix 1 – Clear MS Store cache
Before trying all those big solutions, we suggest you try clearing the MS Store cache.
Step 1 – Quickly open a Run box using the Windows and the R keys at once.
Step 2 – Input this Store reset command there and hit Enter.
You will see a CMD screen flashing by your screen in just a few seconds. This will clear the Microsoft Store cache.
Open the Xbox app and try to install the app again. Test if this actually works.
Fix 2 – Install the apps in different drive
There is another resolution to this issue. Set Xbox, Store apps to install the apps in another drive.
Step 1 – You can change this on the Settings page. So, use the Win+I combination to open that.
Step 2 – Go to the “System” pane.
Step 3 – Open the “Storage” settings here.
Step 4 – Now, expand the “Advanced storage settings” option here.
Step 5 – When you do expand that, you can find the “Where new content is saved” option. Open that up.
Step 6 – Now, carefully select a drive except the Windows drive for the “New apps will save to” option. Click “Apply” to save this change.
This way, when you are installing a new app, it is going to be saved in another drive rather than the Windows drive.
Try to get the app once more.
