During normal operation, the Windows Store may close and display an exception code 0xc000027b. This error may occur due to incorrect time and date settings, which may result in an inability to access the Internet.
Exclusion code 0xc000027b can also occur when the Windows Store requires a forced update. It can also occur if something went wrong in the MS Store configuration. Let’s fix Windows exception code 0xc000027b.
What is the cause of Windows Store Crash exception code 0xc000027b
Damaged registry keys: some registry keys can also be responsible for storing data related to the Windows Store component malfunction. Some affected users were able to resolve the issue by using Registry Editor to remove the affected registry key.
Damaged Store component: a fairly common problem that causes this error code is a damaged Windows Store component. In most cases, this occurs after the security scanner has quarantined some items actively used by the Windows Store component. In this case, the problem can be resolved by automatically resetting the entire Windows Store or by using the wreset.exe utility.
Faulty Store app: it is also possible that this particular issue is related to the fact that your local Microsoft Store folder contains some files that are blocked in a suspended state. If this scenario applies, you can solve the problem by updating all relevant Store components using the Powershell command.
Damaged system file: In some cases, this problem can occur due to corruption of the underlying system file, which affects the stability of the Microsoft Store. In such a situation, you can usually resolve the problem by performing a repair installation.
Incorrect time and date: It turns out that this particular problem can also be caused by an incorrect computer clock setting. In most cases, this problem is caused by an incorrect timestamp, which causes the Microsoft Store server to close the connection, causing the application to stop. In this case, you can solve the problem by setting the correct time and date values.
