    Microsoft Store re-downloads game after a recent update


    Hello,


    after downloading an update for a microsoft game on PC, the store starts the entire download of the game even if it was installed in the first place.

    Are there any fixes for this?


    I got really slow internet, which makes a 30+ GB-download a real pain.


    Greetings

    :)

  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.
