How To Fix Error Code 0x80072ee7 And What It Means?

There are several reasons why it happens, but the most common ones are corrupted Windows system file, network connection configuration, viruses, Windows device update and drivers, registry repair.

If there any corrupted Windows system file, then you can detect them by using this command “sfc/scannow.” Use it in the command prompt and make sure that you run the prompt as an administrator. This troubleshooter will display all the files that are corrupted and repairs it. Then, you just have to restart your computer for the changes to be applied.

You can get this error if the settings in your DNS server program are incorrect. Go to the network sharing center in your control panel and click on the connected network. Then go to properties>protocol ipv4> change DNS settings. Change preferred DNS Server to 8.8.8.8 and change the alternate DNS server 8.8.4.4.

For registry repair open your command prompt as administrator and type in this command, “& {$manifest = (Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.WindowsStore).InstallLocation + ‘\AppxManifest.xml’ ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest}.” This will automatically re-register all registry entries so it will fix this error if registries were a cause.

In case of viruses, run an antivirus scan.

Error code “0x80072ee7” is a Windows Store error which you might encounter on Windows 10 when downloading an app. The error code may be accompanied by either of the following messages:

“The server stumbled”
“We couldn’t connect to the server”

There are times Windows Store will tell you that there is no internet connection though your computer is connected to the internet and you can access any websites. When you encounter this error, first thing you should do is try the System File Checker utility. Press the Windows key + R to bring up the “Run” dialog then type the following command and then hit Enter:

sfc /scannow

Insert your Windows installation CD or DVD when you are prompted then continue. Wait until the process is complete. When it is finished, restart the computer. If this doesn’t work, try changing the DNS servers. Press the Windows key + R to bring up the “Run” dialog then type without quotes “ncpa.cpl” then hit Enter.

On the next screen, right-click your network connection then select “Properties”. In the properties window, double-click “Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)” to open the “Properties”. On the next screen, select “Use the following DNS server addresses:” then enter the following details:

  • For “Preferred DNS server” – 8.8.8.8
  • For “Alternate DNS server” – 8.8.4.4

Check “Validate settings upon exit” then click “OK”. This is the Google public DNS servers. After this, press the Windows key + R to bring up the “Run” dialog then type without quotes “cmd” to launch an elevated command prompt. In the command prompt window, type the following commands then hit Enter after every command:

ipconfig /flushdns
