  1. Games not running after changing Motherboard.


    I cannot play games from microsoft store after changing my mobo. I did read about this issue and I cant just download Forza Horizon 3 again. I do own newer games but how I can resolve this problem, without unnesesary "magic".


    *edit*

    For now it is fixed out of nowhere but this might happen in future since im going to change my gpu soon.

    :)

  2. Wanting to run old games

    Hi Jameson,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community. Your interest in Windows 10 is much appreciated.

    I would suggest you to refer the below link and check the compatibility of the game with Windows 10.

    Explore Windows 10 OS, Computers, Apps, & More | Microsoft

    You may also try installing the game in compatibility mode.
    Follow these steps to install the game software in compatibility mode and check if that helps.


          • Right-click on the game 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 8 operating system from the drop down menu and proceed with the installation. Once this is done, restart the computer and check if the issue persists.
    If the issue still persists, I would suggest you to get in touch with the game manufacturer if it’s specific to that particular game.

    Keep us posted if you face any issues on windows in future. We will be glad to help you.
     
  3. Unable to run a game on Windows 10.

    Hi,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community.

    - When you say 'ive tried troubleshooting', what are you referring to?

    - Did you check in compatibility mode?

    I suggest to run the game in compatibility mode by following the steps below and check if it helps.


    • Right click on the ‘Setup’ icon for the game and click on properties.

    • Under Compatibility tab, check the option for ‘Run in Compatibility mode’.

    • Select Windows 8.1 from the drop down list.

    • Click on Apply and then OK.

    Problems with running games

    Hi Declan,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I suggest you to try installing games in compatibility mode. Compatibility mode runs the program using settings from a previous version of Windows. Follow these steps to install the drivers in compatibility mode and check if that helps.


    • Right-click on the 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 8/8.1 operating system 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.
