  1. Microsoft store not working for pc games.


    Pretty much since I have gotten my pc the Microsoft store has never worked well for games.

    FIrstly,I own xbox game pass ult,and whenever i try to install minecraft dungeons i click "install" and nothing happens. Literally nothing,no error,nothing. There is enough space on both my drives,my store and windows version are updated. This has been happening for weeks


    Whenever i try to launch forza horizon 4 it ...just doesn't launch. It brings up the window,loads for a minute or two and closes.


    Any other map and game updates fine,just minecraft dungeons doesn't work for me,or at least its the only thing that i have found that wont work.

    :)

  2. 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.
