    Can't open ANY game when Xbox Game App installed - Windows 11


    About a week ago I went to load up a game on Game Pass (Weird West) but when I searched for the Xbox app it was missing. I ended up reinstalling the app and then went to play something else. Yesterday I loaded the app and installed Hades, once it was done I tried to run it and nothing happened. I opened task manager and tried to force close the game, as it showed it running, and the task manager froze. I tried to open Chrome to look up the issue and that froze... I then decided to just restart the PC which didn't work either so I had to hard reboot.

    After the restart I tried once again to open Hades which did the same thing as before. I once again had to hard reboot, but this time I had a few ideas to test. On my next reboot I tried to install another game from game pass, same issue and had to reboot. I tried to install a game from steam, same thing had to reboot. I installed a game from Epic, reboot.. EA, Reboot. I removed the Xbox app and the issues went away. I could download/install games from all services, minus Xbox game pass, and worked fine.

    I reinstalled the Xbox app thinking maybe it was just a corrupt install and soon as I did everything stopped working as before. I did a repair on the App and the Gaming Service, but to no avail. I am hoping someone has some insight in to a fix, one that doesn't involve a wipe; which I consider a last resort.

    XBOX GAMES FOR PC LOST AFTER DOWNLOADING MICROSOFT 11

    Lois, let me see if I understand. You're subscribed to Gamepass, right?

    When you open the Xbox app on your PC, no games are showed there? What exactly the app showed you when you open it?

    Also, you said you installed, 11 of them, you cannot see them installed on your PC?
    They installed Windows 11, not "installed 11" games.

    Can't open ANY game when Xbox Game App installed - Windows 11

    Hello dear Gamer, first it's a pleasure to be able to help you today.

    My name is Vinicius.

    I am a gamer and independent advisor on the XBOX community platform.

    Hey Garlin1, how are you today? Hope you're well.

    Garlin1, there are a few things we could try:

    So, let's try this, first, make sure your windows and all its services are up to date:

    Open Settings, click Update and Security and then Windows Update;

    Click Check for Updates;

    Click the Download and Install Now option, if available;

    Also, check the Microsoft Store for any updates on the Xbox apps and its services.

    ______________________________________________________________

    Then try this:

    Go to windows settings > apps > search for gaming services app > click on it and select advanced options.

    After that, click repair and then restore, open the app and try again.

    Then do the same for the Xbox app:

    Go to windows settings > apps > search for Xbox app > click on it and select advanced options.

    After that, click repair and then restore, open the app and try again.

    ______________________________________________________________

    Then, try to uninstall and install the Xbox app. :)

    ______________________________________________________________

    If it still doesn't work you're going to uninstall the games services using a powershell command.

    In the windows search bar type Powershell > Right click and select open as administrator > Type the command: "get-appxpackage Microsoft.GamingServices | remove-Appxpackage –allusers" > Wait for the process to finish and then restart the PC, then open your Xbox gamepass app, it will ask you to install the gaming services again, install it and try again.

    Then, after you do it, you're going to open the game pass app, it will ask you to download and install the game services again

    ______________________________________________________________

    If neither of those procedures works, try to restore your PC's OS via the ISO image tool, using that tool you will be able to maintain your installed games and files.

    If you're using Windows 10:

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-downlo...

    If you're using Windows 11:

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-downlo...

    First, you will download it > Open the ISO Image tool > Open a file inside it called SETUP.exe > Select upgrade > download from the cloud > Keep games and apps.

    I'm Samy an independent advisor. Welcome to the Xbox community. How are you?

    Open the Microsoft Store app on your Windows 10/11, log in with the account that purchased the game in the upper right corner of the app. Then look for the game in the app and install it.

    Xbox App cannot install game

    I've downloaded that Windows 11 Installer, but there is a big problem with that. When I open that app and confirm the UAC dialogue then window pops out and instantly dissappears.

    Can't install any game via xbox app windows 11

    Thank you for your quick reply, I appreciated.

    I've tried everything you are mentioned, but with no luck.

    Refreshing/restoring windows seems totally wrong move, since i've formatted my pc only yesterday.

    Isn't there any other solution?
