  1. Windows Store / Xbox App Not Letting Me Install Games Code: 0x80073D26


    I have been trying to fix this for hours and have read through many other threads and nothing has worked so far. On both the Xbox App and the Microsoft Store, games that I want to install won't install. When I go to install them, the download starts, then errors itself after a few hundred kb and refuses to go forward more. I've tried reinstalling things, restarting, and more, but now I am not sure what to do, but figured I'd make my own post about it since I haven't been able to find much else on the issue. The error code that the Xbox App gives me is 0x80073d26. I just want to be able to use the gamepass I just purchased, any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    :)

  2. Error Code: 0x80073D26. Can't install Gaming Services from Microsoft Store, nor can I reinstall xbox app.

    So I've seen similar posts, but from some time ago, and none of the proposed solutions worked for me. My Xbox app stopped downloading games properly after I uninstalled Final Fantasy 15. After exhausting the recommended solutions related to 0x80073D26 on
    the web, I'm worse off than I started. I don't have Gaming Services or the Xbox app on my computer at this point. The Microsoft Store attempted to install Gaming services, but comes up with the previously mentioned error code. Now, it won't even bring up my
    list of updates, and when I try to install the xbox app (either through the store or from an installer) it just straight up freezes. I've canceled my subscription because I'm basically paying for nothing now. I'd love to restart it, the game selection is excellent.

    I've tried:

    Resetting both the store and the xbox app, as well as manually uninstalling the xbox app and trying to use the installer.

    Clearing the Store Cache using the wsreset command.

    Clean Boot, with no antivirus or firewall.

    I've also tried a command line in powershell (admin). "get-appxpackage Microsoft.GamingServices | remove-AppxPackage -allusers"

    followed by: "start ms-windows-store://pdp/?productid=9MWPM2CQNLHN" at which point I hit 'install' and the store froze. Once I minimized it to look at something else I couldn't open it again.

    None of these things has made a dent. In fact, like I said, I'm in worse shape now.

  3. Store not letting me reinstall games and apps

    Hi Aiden,

    A game license is associated to the Microsoft account used to redeem the game code. In order to install the game to a different device, you'll need to sign in to the account that owns the game license.

    We suggest that you follow the steps provided on this
    link
    on how to view your Xbox purchase history online. Check if you can see the transaction for the game.

    If you can see the transaction and the same issue occurs when you install the game, we suggest running the Windows apps troubleshooter provided on this

    link
    . This can help resolve issues with downloading and installing games from the Windows Store.

    You may also contact our Xbox support team via chat or request a call at your preferred date and time. They can help verify if what account you've used in redeeming the game code. Refer to this

    link
    for their contact details.

    If you have other questions, don't hesitate to get back to us anytime.
