    ARK File Location?

    So I have ARK Survival Evolved on steam, but thats not cross platform, so I got it through the xbox play anywhere. And I cant seem to find where the .exe file for ark, and pretty much any other file for ARK. I have tried looking in my WindowsApps location, but there is very little stuff in there.

    Hi GadflyTheMad

    I'll try to help you on this issue.

    In order to access the default save location of Windows applications, follow these steps:

    - Open File Explorer

    - On the address bar, type C:\%LocalAppData%\Packages and press Enter.

    About your second question, you should reach the Ark forum.

  3. Xbox Play Anywhere, ARK Survival Evolved, File locations

    I installed ARK Survival Evolved onto my laptop through Xbox Play Anywhere, the game runs fine, but i can't find the location in the files where the Microsoft Store put it. I've been looking online for it but the only thing i can find is the location for
    the steam version of the game.

    Moved from: Windows / Windows 10 / Files, folders, & storage

    Well, as I can't test the game myself, I can't try to find it too.

    Try to reach the customer service of Ark in order to ask if they can show you where the files are on the Windows Store Edition.

    Another idea, would be to create a new map (or character, or whatever is requiered in the game), then close everything, and search on your whole computer all the files that were created at this exact moment (sort results by time of creation).

    It may lead you to the correct directory.
