Over the past 24 hours, some Windows Phone 7 users are experiencing an error when downloading apps from the Marketplace. After going through the standard download process from the device, the following error message is displayed.

“There is a problem completing your request. Try again later. Error code: c101b00b.”

The only option to proceed is to hit the Close button and the application installation fails. It seems the issue is effecting multiple WP7 models, running everything from the standard 7.0 firmware, even up to the unreleased mango 7.5 build. Lets hope Microsoft can solve the issue shortly, for both their sake, and developers who are loosing potential sales.

Update
This morning apps are installing as normal. Anyone else still experiencing the issue ?
