    Why did Roblox install itself?


    Yesterday this new app just appeared and installed itself.
    It's called Roblox.
    I had never heard of it before, but I see it is some sort of gaming app.
    I don't have any games on my system and I can't imagine why it installed itself without asking for permission.
    I uninstalled it without starting it.
    Anyone know about this sort of thing?

    :)

  2. ROBLOX error while installing

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am glad to assist you on this.

    • Does this work on previous operating system?
    • How are you trying to use this? Is it through Browser or App?
    I would suggest you to install ROBLOX in a compatibility mode and check if it helps.

    Here are the steps:

    a. Download the latest Application from the manufacturer’s website.

    b. Right-click on the app setup file and click on ‘properties’.

    c. Click on the ‘compatibility’ tab and check the box ‘Run this program in compatibility mode for’
    and select Windows 8/8.1 operating system from the drop down menu and proceed with the installation.

    Once this is done, restart the computer and check if the issue persists.

    Hope this helps. Please do let us know if you need any further assistance.

    Windows 10 Roblox problem

    Hi Auras,

    There are several reasons as to why you can't play Roblox on your computer. Windows Updates may affect the game not to play if your computer is not updated. To make sure that your Windows 10 is up to date, I suggest that you check for any Windows Update
    by using this link as your guide.

    In addition, make sure that Roblox is allowed to run on your Chrome by performing the following steps:

    • Download Roblox and run its setup file.
    • After the game has been installed, try to run it.
    • You should get a message box saying “External Protocol Request”. Check
      Remember my choice for all links of this type and click Launch Application.

    If the issue persists, I suggest that you use another web browser on your computer to check if that helps.

    Do get back to us with the results. We'd be more than willing to provide you additional help.

    Hi Andrew,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I completely understand your concern and feel sorry for the inconvenience this has caused.

    Since ROBLOX is a third party application software, unfortunately we don't have sufficient recourses to support you.

    Before we proceed, I need more information to help you better:
