    can't launch any game on my xbox pc app due to file name syntax error


    when I launch any game from Xbox pc app it gives me a file name syntax error. I think Xbox app stores the games in the windows app folder. I took ownership

    of the folder with full controls to view the game folder. But I am still not able to rename the folder as it says access is denied (for a probable fix for file name syntax is incorrect error) despite having full ownership of the parent folder. Please help

    :)

    MS Flight Simulator installation with error message

    Windows standard with the space is fine:

    File.Open(C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_1.7.12.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\FlightSimulator.exe);

    fails because there is no expected space, it ends up as:

    File.Open(C:\Program -> error

    File.Open("C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_1.7.12.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\FlightSimulator.exe"); -> quote " syntax handles spaces.

    This assumes though the "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_1.7.12.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\FlightSimulator.exe" is the actual issue, or it could
    be the app having the path issue error.

    The other possible issue I see is with Windows insider builds: https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/580065-the-filename-directory-name-or-volume-label-syntax-is/

    "Save to my pc" option in Windows Phone 8 Synchronization App - doesn't work

    Looks like "Save to my PC" does work. Viewed my Music library through the desktop and the downloaded music is there. When I click on the file the Xbox Music app launches but I get an error "Can't play file - error code 0xc1010091. So my problem isn't
    that "Save to my PC" doesn't work - my problem is that the content downloaded to my phone from the Xbox Music store doesn't show up on my computer when I synch it with the Windows Phone App for Windows 8 or if I copy it over using the desktop.

    MS Flight Simulator installation with error message

    I found this error in the Event Viewer->Apps and Services Logs->Microsoft->Windows->“AppModel-Runtime”



    0x8007007B: Cannot create the process for package Microsoft.FlightSimulator_1.7.12.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe because an error was encountered while configuring runtime. [LaunchProcess]

    This error matches the timestamps and the error:

    C:\Program

    Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_1.7.12.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\FlightSimulator.exe

    The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

    Hi,

    Error 0x80070005 is an 'access denied' error code. It means that games and apps can't be installed due to file access restrictions.

    Did you use D:\ drive on a previous PC or previous install of Windows 10?

    Games and Apps on Windows 10 Store install to a folder called 'WindowsApps', if this folder already exists on your drive, you won't be able to install games.
