Number of downloads not correct RRS feed

  • Question

  • Yesterday I logged in to Windows Dev Center and saw that one of my applications had over 13k acquisitions overall, pretty happy about this. I was curious and logged in this morning, now it states (only) 11.122 acquisitions overall. What happend? It is not clear what is going on.

    Do others encounter this problem also?

  • Yes my acquisition has suddenly dropped significantly.  Hope MSFT will fix soon.

  • Is this the case with all your applications? Unclear why this occurred, what could go wrong with counting the number of downloads of an application.

  • Now I see that the application has 12,544 acquisitions/downloads, so in only 2 days is increased by 12,544 - 11,122 = 1422 however this is not visible in the graph and over 700 downloads a day is not realistic regarding to the history of this application.

    It looks like that the number of acquisitions/downloads is unfortunately far from reliable. Since it changes without making clear why/how since it is not visible in the graphs what so ever.
