[WP8.1] Store (IAP) errors RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!
    Can I understand from HResult what type of the exception, why it was thrown?
    For example, when I canceled purchase from store - I catch COMException with HResult 0x80004005 (-2147467259) and I can understand that operation was cancelled by user. I want to know when purchase failed because user hasn't internet connection - but when I try buy item (IAP) without internet connection I catch COMException with same HResult 0x80004005...
    Of course I can check internet connection before purchase but it is extra (unnecessary) code I think.

  • Hi Drleho,

    HResult: 0x80004005 means unspecified error. I found common HResult Values on the following link. https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa378137(v=vs.85).aspx.

    It would better if you can check the network connection before calling IAP, at least we can avoid crashing caused by this error.
