  1. Cannot download games to my PC


    I purchased Forza Horizon 3 over a year ago and had no problems playing it then...... Fast forward to recently. I had factory reset my PC and I wanted to re-install everything, only problem is every time I try to re-install it wants me to re-purchase the game. I go onto the web browser and click the Play/Install button only for the app to re-appear prompting me to re-purchase the game. I go to the little ... on the side and select device but cant see my device, only my buddies PC when he let me borrow his for a couple weeks. Didn't have any issues installing the game while it was currently installed on my device. Tried troubleshooting the app store but no faults were found. I go to previous purchases and I can see the game there but when I go to my library its not there. I have tried almost everything but still no luck. I bought the ultimate edition which was like $150 so i'm just a little more than pissed the **** off that my money is now down the toilet. I will NEVER buy anything from Microsoft again until this issue is solved.

    :)

  2. Downloading games

    Hi,



    Install game in Compatibility mode

    I would suggest you to install the game I compatibility mode and check: Follow these steps:




    • Download the driver from the manufacturer’s website.

    • Right-click on the driver setup file and click on
      ‘properties’.

    • Click on the ‘compatibility’ tab and check the box
      ‘Run this program in compatibility mode for’ and select Windows 10 from the drop down menu and proceed with the installation. Once this is done, restart the computer and check if the issue persists


    Hope it helps. Do contact us for further queries. We will be happy to assist.



    Thank you.

  3. Where are my downloaded Games?

    Hi Brandon,

    Games downloaded from the Microsoft Store website or through the Windows Store app are added in the Xbox app's Game list. To access this, kindly perform the following steps:

    • Select the Start button, then select Xbox.
    • Sign in using the Microsoft account you've used to download the game.
    • Select My games. Games you have on that device will appear there.

    If you can't see the game, it may be because the game was not automatically added on your Game list. To add it, proceed with the steps below:

    • Select the Start button, then select Xbox.
    • Sign in using the Microsoft account you've used to download the game.
    • Select My games.
    • Select Add a game from your PC.
    • You'll see a scrollable list of all Win32 games and programs that have
      Start
      menu shortcuts. From the list, find Solitaire HD and add it to your
      My games menu so you can quickly browse for and launch the game.
    • Once you've selected your choices, select Add selected games at the bottom of the pop-up window.

    Don't forget to notify us with the results. We'd be glad to further assist you.
