  1. Multiple Game Passes on a Single Computer- Install Lockout/Issues


    Hello,


    So as far as I can tell operating two game pass enabled accounts on a single computer has a "user based install lock". Is there a work around/is this intentional (if so why)?


    What this means in practice is that if User A installs game A on (CMultiple Game Passes on a Single Computer- Install Lockout/Issues :) drive User B is now locked out from installing game A on the (CMultiple Game Passes on a Single Computer- Install Lockout/Issues :) drive, but is able to successfully install the game on any other drive enabled for app install. Attempting to install the game on the drive that User A has installed it on will fail in the following manner:


    The install will start, the installer recognizes the game has already been installed and instantly finishes, the system sends notifications that the game is ready to play but the game fails to start. My best guess of what is happening in between the install finishing and the failure to launch is the User B account not being flagged for game access. After trying to launch the install button reappears, as if nothing was done in the first place.



    So I thought this was just a use case they did not predict/intend, but in this thread: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us...-sharing/5d04df06-6024-4126-8425-43957dc46e8a the solution to "sharing" is to operate two game pass subscription accounts on a single PC. So is it also intended that every single install has to be doubled up for both users to have access?



    Thanks for your time, if I need to clarify anything here let me know.

    :)

    Hi Bat,

    I am Sumit, an Independent Advisor and a 2-Year Windows Insider MVP here to help.

    These are the games free with the pass.

    However, the exact difference can be told by experts on the Xbox forum so suggest you to start a question there.
