    Cannot reinstall game pass games after OS clean install


    Hello. I subscribed to game pass for PC and have been enjoying games like Crusader Kings III and Subnautica for a couple of months with no issues at all.

    But after a clean reinstall of Windows 10, all the install buttons of the games I used to play with game pass are greyed out, and there is no way to install them. I am able to install and run all the games I actually bought and the ones included with the pass that I had never installed before.

    I have enough disk space and my subscription is active. Please somebody help Cannot reinstall game pass games after OS clean install :(

    p.s.: forgive my bad english

    :)

    I mean with other distribution systems on PC like Steam or EA's Origin, you just point them back to the folder where the games are. Unfortunately, for reasons, Microsoft doesn't do it this way. The system probably creates some other files located in the OS itself with a unique encryption hash that can't be migrated that locks out installs being moved or copied. I don't really know. And I don't think backing up a game is possible.

    Thank you for your reply. Do you mean that even if I formatted the hard disk, the WindowsApp folder keeps memory of previous installations by referring to my account data? Can the problem be solved by letting the game pass subscription expire and then re-subscribing?

    This is because the WindowsApps folder is encrypted. This encryption even goes as far as not allowing the folders to be migrated to a new install of Windows on the same machine let alone a new one. The encryption is not removed if you take control of the folder either. Um.. I also believe that this really can't be solved or helped. I'm sorry you are having this problem.

    The Outer Worlds does not start

    This has gotten completely and utterly absurd.

    I did a clean reinstall of windows 10, and yet somehow The Outer Worlds

    STILL. DOES. NOT. LAUNCH.

    I give up.
    When you stay "It doesn't launch", do you mean you able to download the game and install it but it will not launch after that or you cannot even install the game?

    Shuffle Party won't install

    Hey DownyPick549460!

    After you uninstall the game, let's try restarting your game before reinstalling it. That can often times clean up install issues like this! If that doesn't help with installing the game post back here and let us know :)
