  1. Can't select a drive to install game to


    So I'm signed in to my main pc with my Microsoft account and I open the Microsoft store, for some reason when I try to download and install The Elder Scrolls Tamriel Unlimited, I get a pop up telling me that I don't have any applicable devices linked to my microsoft account and that to install I need to sign in on a device with my microsoft account...?


    Weirdly, I can install games like killer Instinct definitive edition just fine from the store from the same pc. -and when I look and linked devices on my account the PC I'm using is one of them its only this computer and my laptop I use and they're both there.... what's going on??

    :)

    Please try the steps given below and check if the issue persists:

    Step 1:

    Follow the steps below on how to install game in compatibility mode:

    1. Download the game from the manufacturer’s website and save it on your local disk.

    2. Right click on the setup file of the game and select “Properties”.

    3. Select “Compatibility” Tab.

    4. Place a check mark next to “Run this program in Compatibility mode” and select operating system from the drop down list.

  3. Installing to a second Drive. D: or external (Non Boot up Drives)

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    We understand your concern as you are looking for an option to move the game location from the C drive to the Drive D, which is an external drive.



    In this scenario, we would suggest you to perform these steps and check if that resolves your issue on both laptop and Desktop.



    1. As usual install the game on the PC’s in
      C Drive.
    2. Insert the external
      D drive
      to the PC.
    3. Press Windows + I key from the keyboard to launch
      Settings.
    4. Select Apps and click on
      Apps & features
      from the left pane.
    5. Search for the installed game from the list on the right pane.
    6. Single click on the game and select
      Move.
    7. Select the D drive under
      Choose a drive
      where you want to move the game.
    8. Restart the PC with the external drive connected and then launch the game.


    We await your response.

    Can't select a drive to install game to

    W7 Hard drive partition issue

    to get rid of that 100 meg windows partition that setup creates for you on a new install on a blank hdd:

    - press shift+f10 when on the partition management screen in setup <-- this opens a command prompt
    - diskpart <-- start the windows command line partition management tool
    - list disk <--- list the installed hdds in this computer for the next step
    - select disk 0 <- might have to replace 0 with the number of the correct disk
    - clean <-- this will erase all data on the disk you selected one step up- dont use the wrong disk!
    - create partition primary <- creates a primary partition taking up all space on the drive, adjust the command if necessary
    - exit, exit to exit diskpart and the command prompt
    - click refresh in partition manager and select your newly created partition and install to that
