    Cannot download game after uninstalling


    So recently I uninstalled The Outer Worlds from gamepass to help resolve an issue but when I try to reinstall the game, the progress bar fills up instantly and still shows the "install" button. I'm not sure if the files are on my pc and game pass detects
    them, but I am unable to play the game. I can install any other gamer just fine, but installing The Outer Worlds does nothing.

    :)

    Some have reported that some games downloads will get the 0x80070005 error if you are not currently running Xbox (Beta) or the Store as your system Administrator, while others say you have to specifically open the App as a local Administrator (as
    in, a PC user not logged in to a Microsoft account) and only log in to Xbox (Beta) once it has opened. While neither of these methods fixed our particular issue, there certainly seems to be enough evidence around that the method may work.

    To check your Administrator privileges or to sign in as a local administrator, head to Start > Settings > Accounts > Your info. There's an option to sign in as a local administrator here.
    Warning — make sure you've saved everything you need to save, as this will log out the main user account.

    To ensure that you are running the Store or the Xbox (Beta) App as an Administrator, search for either program in the Search bar, right click on the correct result and hit "Run as administrator". Allegedly, if you have managed to download and start the
    affected games for the first time, you should be able to return to your normal account and continue playing.

    Cannot download msc after uninstall, getting message.

    Unfortunately this sounds like a Windows Operating System error and not an error with our games. You will need to go to
    http://support.microsoft.com so that they can help you resolve this issue.

    Cannot Uninstall Games

    Had this problem before with another game (can't remember which) and had it with Chariot too.

    After level 1-4 for me, it just sat on a loading screen. Didn't freeze, the wheel in the bottom right was still turning but it loaded for about 15 minutes.

    I went to dashboard and quit the game from there, and then could no longer load up any other app on my xbox, or select any game, or settings, and when I started Chariot it got to the "Press A to continue" start screen but nothing would make the game progress.

    Fixed it by unplugging and plugging my xbox back in.
