I'm using windows 8, a lot of times when I try to download an app from the store I get error 0x80200013. I tried searching the web but only found articles about this error related to Windows Update, not Windows Store.

The problem is either with BITS (same source for WU errors as well) or your network hardware. – Karan Dec 27 '12 at 0:29
Windows store is related to Windows Update I think. Run the official Apps troubleshooter first… – pratnala Dec 27 '12 at 9:33
I'm getting the same thing - wondering if it has to do with me switching from a local to a domain user? Anyway, tried the troubleshooter which, on the surface, claimed to change some things, but by looking at the details, it didn't manage to accomplish anything. – Robert Schmidt Mar 12 '13 at 8:09

Just figured out that disabling the use of a web proxy seemed to fix it for me. My IE proxy settings were auto-configured on my home domain (in order to use Privoxy for browsing). When I turned off auto-configuration, all apps and updates in my Store queue installed as they should.

Now I just need to figure out how to keep using Privoxy while ensuring that BITS/Store can keep working.

0x80200013 means BG_E_INSUFFICIENT_RANGE_SUPPORT If you are in corporation network, check proxy servers to ensure that they are configured correctly to support range requests. Nice work Robert! – Moab Aug 15 '15 at 18:14
