  1. Help Launching a game from the microsoft store


    Hi,

    I've just installed sea of theives from the microsoft store online, and its finished completely installed all 43gb. However, everytime i try and open it, it just opens the screen and immediately closes again without delay. If i spam click it, it opens for slightly longer but closes straight away anyway. Im really not sure what's wrong. I am on an un-activated windows account in case that has anything to do with it.

    Please help.

    :)
