  1. Cannot Open Xbox Games on PC - Receiving Error Code 0x800700c1


    Hello,

    This is day 5 of not being able to open any Xbox Games on my PC. I have updated where updates are available and to no avail. Any other game platform works. Steam, Epic games, Battle.net and so on, all are working fine. This is specifically a Xbox network issue.

    I have uninstalled and re-installed all 3 games shown below and still cannot open them.

    Is this on my end or on MS's end?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Shinobu! My name is Ricardo an independent advisor ready to help you with this situation!

    This error is usually because some registry corrupted entries, if is the only app giving you issues you could try this

    Open RegEdit as an administrator and delete the following Services:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\GamingServices]

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\GamingServicesNet]

    Reboot PC

    Select the Search icon on the taskbar, type powershell, right-click on Windows PowerShell, and then select Run as administrator.

    In Windows PowerShell, type the following command and press Enter:

    get-appxpackage Microsoft.GamingServices | remove-AppxPackage -allusers

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

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

    Install the app on that page and select Yes when you receive the User Account Control (UAC) prompt.

    Restart your device and try to install the game again.

    If after this you still have issues, you should try to restore to a previous point your PC

    Hello, sickbrain. Thanks for reaching out. I'm Lucas, an Independent Advisor and a Microsoft user just like you. I'll be glad to help you out.

    Did you try reinstalling the Gaming Services? If not, please try it:

    - Go to Start > Search for PowerShell > Right Click > Run as Administrator.

    - In Windows PowerShell, type the following command and press Enter:
    get-appxpackage Microsoft.GamingServices | remove-AppxPackage -allusers

    - In the same window, type the following command and press Enter:
    start ms-windows-store://pdp/?productid=9MWPM2CQNLHN

    - Install the app on that page and select Yes when you receive the User Account Control (UAC) prompt.

    - Restart your device and try lauching the games again.

    See if this works and please let me know. This is a very basic troubleshooting step. If it doesn't work, there are a lot of other more complex steps to try. Just let me know and we'll go through them.

    I can´t download the free xbox live games with gold game, error code

    Sorry to hear it. The error you're receiving suggests that the issue lies with the region. Some content cannot be downloaded to a country that it was not intended for.

    Same thing for me but error received when trying to open Xbox Store. Error code search yields nothing. Major screw-up by Microsoft?
