Solution to error 0x800713AB

Error 0x800713AB can be resolved in four ways. It is better to do it in the order given below.

Method No. 1 Checking the network connection

  1. Press WIN+I to open the “Options” window.
  2. Go to the sections “Network and Internet” → “Advanced network settings” → “Reset network”.
  3. Click on the “Reset Now” button and click “Yes” to confirm your intentions.

Your computer will restart – this is normal, your PC is fine.

Method No. 2 Adjusting the settings of the Microsoft Store installation service

The Microsoft Store will not work properly if its installation service is not configured correctly. You can adjust these settings in the “Services” window.

  1. Press the combination WIN+S to open the Windows search bar.
  2. Enter the request “Services” and select the result found.
  3. Double-click on “Microsoft Store Installation Service”.

  5. Restart your PC.

After logging into the OS, launch the store application and check for error 0x800713AB.

  • Wait for the store app to open – this means the reset is complete.

A reset is enough to solve most magazine problems, but sometimes a complete reinstallation is required.
