Error message “Your PC doesn’t meet the Minimum requirements” occurs when you try to install a game or app from the Windows Store

Problem

You may see the following error message when you try to install a game or app from the Windows Store:

Sorry, this app can’t be installed because your PC doesn’t meet the minimum requirements.

This may mean that your computer cannot run a specific game or app. For example, you receive this error message if your system hardware does not meet the minimum system requirements.

Solution

To determine whether your system meets the minimum system requirements for the application, review the system requirements for the game or app. You can review the minimum system requirements for the game or app on the Details tab for the item in the Windows Store.

Note Games that only support x86 and x64 processors are not compatible with Windows RT-based devices. For Windows RT-based devices, look for ARM in the supported processors list.
