  2. Ark Survival Evolved: Windows Store (won't launch)

    Hi Ryan,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    To have better clarity on the issue, answer the below-listed questions and get back to us.

    1. Did you make any changes to the computer prior to this issue?
    2. Are you trying to play the Ark Survival Evolved game on your Windows computer or on your Xbox?

    I would suggest you to
    Post a Screenshot
    of the game that launches in the default screen.

    Meanwhile, try the below methods.

    Method 1: Fix Problems with Apps from Microsoft Store.

    Follow the troubleshooting steps mentioned in
    Fix Problems With Apps From Microsoft Store
    and see if this helps.

    Method 2: Clean Boot.

    Perform a
    Clean Boot
    and see if you are facing the same issue with the Ark Survival Evolved game.

    NOTE: A 'Clean Boot' starts Windows with a minimal set of drivers and startup programs, so that you can determine whether a background program is interfering with your game or program. Your computer may temporarily lose some functionality
    while in a clean boot environment, however, that functionality will return when you reset the computer to start normally after you have finished your troubleshooting.

    If the Clean Boot works, then don't forget to place the computer to normal boot by going to 'Reset the computer to start normally after clean boot troubleshooting' section in the Clean Boot link.

    Method 3: New User Account.

    If the above methods didn't' work, then you may need to
    Create a New Administrator User Account
    and launch the game from the New User Account and see if this helps.

    Hope it helps.

    Let us know if you got the help you needed by clicking Yes or No.
