    Can't Install Games That Were Previously Cancelled Mid-Installation


    Two games I was quite excited for were canceled mid-install because I needed to test a game after multiple PC reboots and was tired of constantly pausing the automatically resuming downloads every time I opened the app.

    Now, when I click the install button on Metro Exodus, the game appears in the list for a split second, the install button becomes the "Preparing" dialogue, and then disappears.

    I think it has something to do with how the app re-initializes installs, because I was able to get Wolfenstein II working. For that title, the same issue happened, but it took maybe half a second before the dialogue disappeared. In that half second I was able to quickly click the "X" button and the "Yes" to the "Are you sure?" prompt.

    Then, upon installing Wolfenstein II, it installed properly. For Metro Exodus, I can't get to the button fast enough to use that workaround. What are my options here?

    I've tried clearing Temp files through Windows 10 settings, killing Xbox processes and process trees, and doing reboots/hard shutdowns. Found the Deep Silver folder in Windows Apps/Resources and deleted it, no dice. Mashing the install button eventually just soft locks the application (it turns into a blank grey box). Also, I did confirm that it is only an issue for those two games.



    Digging into the Windows Apps folders to see if there are any remains of Metro Exodus in there, but either they're well hidden or I don't know where to look to delete them. Or they don't exist and it's some other type of bug.

    If anyone else has figured this out or has suggestions, an assist would be greatly appreciated! And if it helps Microsoft catch a bug, that'd be cool too. Can't Install Games That Were Previously Cancelled Mid-Installation ;)

    The game 'Apex Legends' doesn't finish downloading and comes up with 'installation stopped'? What should I do?

    Same thing happened to me when i was trying to download BO3, the way i figured out around this problem is just to cancel the whole download, go to the Microsoft store, go to the game you were just previously trying to download, then install it again.
    Should go past the Pause Installation part and be able to download fully.

    Failure to Install, tried everything

    Hey there Phazer0nest!

    When you tried an offline install did you completely cancel the install before going offline? If it was still mid installation when you disconnected your console it's worth cancelling it completely. If you're still having troubles, can you check to make
    sure the disc doesn't have any scratches or cracks on it? If you have a friend with an Xbox One, see if you're able to install your disc on their console.

    Let us know how it goes :)

    Uninstalled games

    Hi,

    Were you playing the trial previously? You may need to uninstall, clear local saved games and then install again

    Can't cancel broken installation

    Fully remove the game. Saved data and all.

    Power cycle the console by holding down the power button for 10 seconds.

    Restart the console and reinstall the game.
