Symptoms

 Lenovo Vantage might fail to install/update from the Microsoft Store.  The error code is 0x80073CFB.

Diagnosis

 The Microsoft Store frequently has problems installing/updating Vantage as well as other non-Lenovo apps.  We don't know why this problem happens.  We are working with Microsoft about this problem, but so far they are not able to fix it.

Solution

 Lenovo Vantage can be downloaded and installed manually, without using the Microsoft Store:

1.  Save the following file to your PC:  Discovery_4.27.32.0.zip

2.  From the folder where you saved the file, right-click on Discovery_4.27.32.0.zip and choose "Extract All..."

Other users have told me it works.  Please provide more details about what's not working for you.  Screenshots would be great.

I did all, except No. 3, I didn't see anything about on screen instructions for install or update.

You're not following the instructions.  In step 1, you have to unzip the file.  Right-click on the .zip file and then choose "extract all".  In step 2, from the extracted folder, you have to double-click on the APPXBUNDLE file.

I, too am having problems with Vantage.  It stopped working after I used PCMover to load my programs and woud give the error to install the System-Interface-Foundation, which didn't help.  I uninstalled and tried to reinstall from the Store, but it failed. 

 

I then used the link above for the Discovery_4.13.... Zip file, Made a directory for it and tried to install.  I get Lenovo Vantage Installation Failed with this error:

 

"App installation failed with error message: The provided package is already installed, and reinstallation of the package was blocked. Check the AppXDeployment-Server"

 

No idea what that means.  I even tried uninstalling ALL the lenovo apps and had the same error.

I did follow your instructions (per your last solution), and nothing works. So, I don't know what else, or what more to do? I guess I won't be getting it on my laptop after all. Do I need to do any other things like: with the BIOS, get rid of other Lenovo apps, or something extra? What OS Build should I have on my machine?

What and where is the AppXDeployment-Server?

HikinMike,

 

In your case it sounds like the Vantage installation is incomplete or corrupted.  I'd like you to try a different step to uninstall any existing Vantage version.  Then you can reboot and try to install it again.

 

Please download this file: https://1drv.ms/u/s!ApXWjQB7_a1bhftgybR5BqrEQBK1oA

 

Then:

1.  unzip it to some file on your PC

2.  from the unzipped folder, right-click on uninstall_apps.bat and choose the option "run as administrator"

3.  then reboot and try to re-install Vantage

 

If there are any errors or you have any questions about what you see, post a screenshot.
