It looks like you don’t have any applicable device(s) linked to your Microsoft account error is quite self-explanatory. You seemingly don’t have an Xbox device registered while trying to install a game purchased from Microsoft Store. That would be quite fine if some affected don’t own an Xbox with registered to the same Microsoft Account. That’s where the problem arises.

One user stated his concerns on the Microsoft support forum.

After buying a game through Microsoft.com it asks me where I want to install. But it says no applicable devices. After a few seconds the xbox started to download the game on its own so at least they’re talking to each other. However in my devices overview my xbox shows just fine. What’s going on?
