Make sure that your Microsoft Account is not set to Family Account because WhatsApp has an age restriction. Check your settings as suggested in above answers. Then enable your WiFi, sign into your Microsoft Account and begin the download.

I have Lumia 535 and it's taking too much time to install any app?

Hi, I have Lumia 535 and it's taking too much time to install any app even sometimes it canceled it and asks to retry. I have good internet connection why is it still happening ?

Is your install location for apps set to the SD card? If so you should format the SD card. You can change the path of some pending apps first, before you format and lose all your data saved to the SD card. If the app suddenly updates then it is your SD card. You can format in Apps>Storage Sense>SD card>Format SD card. You may still have to install apps to the phone's Internal Memory Storage even after formatting the SD card, though.

Check to make sure your Microsoft Account is synced. Go into Email + Accounts. Login into your Microsoft Account and then manually sync the account. Check that you are logged in to the Windows Store properly. Your date and time on the device may also be incorrect which would stop any updates or downloads of apps.

How to install WhatsApp on my Nokia Lumia 520

I can not install. Every time I create my account it tells me incorrect password

Verify your Microsoft Account. Then sync the Microsoft Account from your Lumia 520. You should also check that you do not have a Family Account with Microsoft. To install WhatsApp with a Family Account, you would need permission from the Family Account administrator due to age restriction. See if you can install any other app, if you can then it could even be that your WiFi is not connected which WhatsApp recommends for installation. Finally, you can try sideloading the app using the method in an above answer.

This is a problem caused by activating Windows Live ID before you can use Marketplace. You will have to contact the Microsoft support team and enter an activation code before Windows Live ID signing in can be successfully completed. Locate a customer inquires number at http://www.microsoft.com/worldwide by clicking your country on the list. You will have to talk to Microsoft representatives who will generate an activation code for you and walk you through the activation steps.

If you have Windows 8.1 OS or higher the process has changed slightly. Now you Sideload the Open the Windows Store on your device. First, convert the files to APPX. In the Windows Store Settings of the app find an option to "Install Local Apps" and select it. Your APPX files will appear in a list. You then select them manually to install. This is why you are not seeing them as you did before after you updated the OS.

Your File Manager is the location that Xap files are found. If you still have older Windows OS, you should Format your SD card and try to load the Xap files to the SD card after. Your card may be set to Read Only which would not allow you to find the files.
