    Anybody else having trouble installing these apps??? I can “try again”  as many times as I want and it keeps telling me it can’t install it. Additionally, Microsoft seems to have forgotten to include a “reinstall” option in the marketplace.

       I think they are already pre-installed! As soon as I finished installing the CP and entered the Marketplace it informed me that 5 apps were ready for updating, of which those were included!
