    Administrator Approval Required

    Hello, first it's a pleasure to be able to help you today.

    My name is welcome to the community.

    Hello SahithMallampati1, try to follow the procedure below.

    Start > Run shell:AppsFolder to get to the dumb hidden app folder

    pin Xbox to taskbar

    hold shift+ctrl and click to run in admin mode

    hit install on gamepass, but before running first time right click on icon and create desktop shortcut.

    right click that to run as admin and should at least bring up the launcher, which worked for me at that point no issues.

    That game was removed from Game Pass recently. You'll need to purchase it if you want to continue playing it.

    Thank you for contacting us! I'm Anderson, an Independent Consultant and a Microsoft user like you.

    good morning

    "Microsoft has released an update to fix this issue. To install the update, follow these steps:

    Select the Start button in the lower left corner of the main screen and select Settings.

    Select Update and Security > Check for Updates.

    Select View optional updates, then select update KB5004476 from the list.

    KB5004476

    Select Download and Install.

    When the update is complete, restart the device.

    You should now be able to install, update and launch games.

    Are you still in trouble?

    Try deleting the Game Services registry keys and reinstalling the Game Services app on your Windows 10 device:

    Right-click the Start button in the lower left corner of the main screen and select Windows PowerShell (Administrator).

    From the Administrator: At the Windows PowerShell screen type the following command and press Enter:

    Get-AppxPackage *gamingservices* -allusers | remove-appxpackage -allusers

    In the same window, type the following commands and press Enter:

    Remove-Item -Path "HKLM:\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\GamingServices" -recurse

    Remove-Item -Path "HKLM:\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\GamingServicesNet" -recurse

    Restart the device.

    Right-click the Start button in the lower left corner of the main screen and select Windows PowerShell (Administrator).

    From the Administrator: At the Windows PowerShell screen type the following command and press Enter:

    start ms-windows-store://pdp/?productid=9MWPM2CQNLHN

    Install the application on this page and select Yes when prompted for User Account Control (CCU).

    Try installing or starting the game again."

    The problem started with this error, and there are several other errors, I advise you to try.

    Launch Blair Witch is currently not available in your account. Make sure you are signed in to the Store and try again. Here’s the error code, in case you need it: 0x803F8001

    That is what it says and as well it says about the admin approval. Just worried if i buy it, its still going to say that and i have no way of fixing it!

    Oh ok. But also it does say it needs admin approval so what happens if i purchase the game and it still says the same thing an will not open and run?
