    Salam Wasim. To download apk files on PC, first install it to your Android device from Google Play Store via WiFi and then make backup of this installed apk to MicroSD card with the help of “My APKs” software. Read this article for complete guide:

      Go to app settings and clear data n uninstall updates then restart phone then check again. You can also try 1mobile market app instead of play store.
