  1. Microsoft Store Game Randomly Uninstalled


    Hi all,


    So my partner and I just went to play Age of Empires 2 Definitive Edition multiplayer, which we haven't done for about a month. My partner owns the game purchased previously, NOT on the Game Pass For PC on the hard drive on her laptop NOT external. Never had a problem before but the shortcut on the desktop wouldn't load it for her. Looked at the Microsoft Store, and it said it needed installing. It has essentially uninstalled itself. I tried finding the executable in the folder but nothing in the AoE files I could find so looks like it has indeed uninstalled somehow.


    Now we are trying to install it again, but the install stops randomly. The progress bar doesn't increase while the download is taking place, it stays frozen on the same number until the download stops. Then when you tell it to install again, it updates the number which will stay frozen until it stops again and the cycle continues.


    Any reason why this has uninstalled itself and why the reinstall process is so buggy? I have my reservations as to if it will actually reinstall once it finally reaches the end which is really annoying and I can't find a way to contact MS directly to resolve.


    Thanks for any help guys. Appreciate it.


    D

    UNINSTALL GAMES FROM MICROSOFT

    Hi Calaird,

    This is Wil, one of the independent advisor, an expert with Windows 10 and a fellow Windows 10 user like you. I understand your concern about Uninstalling games.

    Reference:

    If you installed your game from the Microsoft Store, follow these steps:

    1. Press the Windows button on your device or keyboard, or select the Windows icon in the lower-left corner of the main screen.

    2. Select All Apps, and then find your game in the list.

    3. Right-click the game tile, and then select Uninstall.

    4. Follow the steps to uninstall the game.

    5. To reinstall your game, open the Store app, and then select the profile button.

    6. Select My Library.

    7. Locate your game in the list of available downloads, and then select the download icon to the right.

    If you installed your game from a location other than the Microsoft Store, such as a DVD or external storage device, follow these steps:

    1. Press the Windows button on your device or keyboard, or select the Windows icon in the lower-left corner of the main screen.

    2. Select Settings, and then in the search bar, type “Programs and features.”

    3. Select Programs and Features from the search results.

    4. Highlight your game in the list of available programs and apps.

    5. If your game supports repair, Repair will appear as an option above the list of games. Select this option to access the in-game repair process. Alternatively, some games support repair via the Uninstall/Change options. If you don't see "Repair," select Uninstall
    or Change from the available options and check to see if the game supports repair.

    I hope my suggestions help you. If you need further assistance please do reply back and I will respond as quickly as possible. Have a nice day.

    Thanks,

    Wilfred P.

    Microsoft Store Game Randomly Uninstalled

    Uninstalled apps stuck "installing" in Microsoft Store (MSN News)

    Hi Will,

    A corrupted Microsoft Store cache is one of the possible reasons why some apps are stuck in an "installing phase" when you try to uninstall them. We suggest that you try running the
    Windows App troubleshooter to troubleshoot the issue.

    If the issue persists, we suggest that you reset the Microsoft Store cache. You can follow the steps below to reset the Microsoft Store cache:

    • Press Windows + R keys to open the run
      command
      box.
    • Type WSReset, then try launching Microsoft Store and sign in.

    Should you need further assistance, don't hesitate to get back to us.
