    My foster son had to uninstall his Webkinz Next because his game on PC said he must do an “update” and it would not work. I am not able to the game to install from the Microsoft store – it just gives me an “error” message. It will not allow me to install the game at all. Is anyone else having this issue. I am not sure how to fix it for him as I am not very tech savvy? Any ideas on what I should do now?

      You can find the computer requirements for Webkinz Next on our app download page in the Windows Store. If you’re still having issues with the app, please email for further assistance.

        Thank you. I will email. It was working fine for him and had been on the family desktop since the kids started Next awhile ago but once he uninstalled it will not reinstall at all from Microsoft app store without the error popping up. I will message support to see if I can find some other way to put it back on our computer. The kids really miss the next game on the desktop. They don’t have much time to be on our 1 family phone and its made sibling interactions a bit tough when it comes to Kinz time each day in our house. :)
