    Game Failed To Install from Microsoft Store and Now, I Can't Find The Install Files To Delete


    So this game was 44 gigs when it failed to install. Now, I'm trying to download it again but the install files never deleted previously and I can't find it. Basically, there's 44 gigs of this game that is unaccounted for which won't let me reinstall because my harddrive doesn't have enough space. Any help here?

    :)

  2. Can't install Oblivion: Data Error

    The crc error is kind-of a developer's fault which happens if you install the game on a system where it had already been installed and uninstalled before. It had happened to me personally and my disk is fine...

    To manage without having to reinstall windows, try it - at the best you'd save buying a new disk and at the worst it might not work and no harm would be done...

    1.) Go to Add/remove programs and uninstall Oblivion (If it shows on the list). If the add/remove procedure results in an error - skip to the next step and continue as it will still remove the game with the remaining steps.

    2.) After or If the uninstall finishes go to Start - Run - type regedit - hit Enter - click on the + sign next to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, click on the + sign next to SOFTWARE, click on the + sign next to BETHESDA SOFTWORKS, right click on Oblivion (if it is still there) and then delete.

    3.)Now still in Regedit find HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{35CB6715-41F8-4F99-8881-6FC75BF054B0} and delete it the same way you deleted oblivion in the last step.(If it is still there - this is the uninstall key for add\remove programs)

    4.)close regedit.

    5.)Go into explorer find the C:\Program Files\Bethesda Softworks\Oblivion folder (if it is still there) and delete it.

    6.)find the folder C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\My Games\Oblivion (Substitute your username for USERNAME) and delete it (Again if it is still there)

    By doing this it will delete all traces of the game from your computer.

    Now you can install the game *Smile Game Failed To Install from Microsoft Store and Now, I Can't Find The Install Files To Delete :) hopefully without getting crc problems.

    If deleting the stuff from the registry doesn't work or you're still getting uninstallation errors, one way that I used to get around it was to go into Safe Mode and run the setup.exe file from the disc. IIRC it asks you if you want to reinstall the game...so go ahead and reinstall it.

    C windows installer folder - Delete?

    He can do symbolic link redirection and move the files in it to a different location. *Wink Game Failed To Install from Microsoft Store and Now, I Can't Find The Install Files To Delete ;)
    Better try it out in a virtual of first. Just a suggestion.

    Like:
    First move everything in c:\windows\installer to d:\installercache
    Then delete c:\windows\installer folder
    Then type this in command mode as admin
    mklink /d c:\windows\installer d:\installercache

    Removing those installer files is a bad idea. it might prevent you from updating or uninstalling apps.
