Windows 8 Store does not respond to authentication requests. This can cause errors with downloading applications through the proxy.
Authentication can be bypassed in the Authentication Manager.
- Navigate to User Management – Authentication and select the Bypass tab¹.
- Click the button².
- Create the following three separate entries (with asterisks):
|URL or Domain||User-Agent|
¹ For version 6.8.3a and earlier: Advanced Settings – Proxy Settings – Authentication Manager
² For version 6.8.3a and earlier: Click Add new bypass entry at the bottom of the Bypassed section of the screen.
