Most preferred solution

Install the app through Windows store instead of installing via offline. The app you mentioned is available in windows store. You can find it here.

Store link : https://www.microsoft.com/en-US/store/apps/Smash-Bandits-Racing/9NBLGGH16PLL

However if you still wanted to install through an offline file see the following steps.

Similar problems were reported in Microsoft community and Stack overflow. From these conversations I have listed some steps to solve this problem.


  1. Invert any changes made to your region recently.
  2. Make sure that your storage location for apps is set to phone memory.
  3. Make sure date and time of your phone is set correctly.
  4. Set your region and Time zone to same country.

Restart your phone, and try again! these errors appear sometimes. Check if the date and time are correct!
