    Microsoft store games not starting


    any games that I have installed off of the Microsoft store will either not open or open to a splash screen and be stuck on that screen for about a minute until it will eventually close. I have tried resetting the games multiple times, i have uninstalled and then reinstalled the games and I have also tried running the games on an admin account. The games that i am trying to play are Sea Of Thieves and Forza Horizon 4. These games work perfectly fine on my laptop and they both use the same Microsoft account.

    :)

  3. Using games from the microsoft store

    Based on the results you've obtained, this can be an issue with the Windows Store which affects the digital games you’ve downloaded from it. We suggest manually resetting the Windows Store cache. Here are the steps:

    • Press the Windows + R keys to open the Run dialog box.
    • Type WSReset.exe and click OK.
    • The Store and a command prompt will now open with any message. The command prompt will automatically close after the Store's cache has been reset.
    Once done with the reset, kindly click this
    link
    and follow the steps on how to check for updates for apps and games from Windows Store. Search if there are any updates available for the affected game.

    Keep us updated with the progress.
