  1. Can't run game due to File Error/Microsoft Store Doesn't Recognize I Own a Game


    Hi,

    I am trying to run a game on my PC that I originally bought for xbox (No Man's Sky). I went to the Microsoft Store, and It looked like I had to buy the game again. To my surprise, the game just automatically started to download. I let the download finish
    and I tried to start the game. The game failed to open and I received a file system error (-2143322098). I read around on some other forums and saw that someone had luck with uninstalling and re-installing the game. I tried to do that but once I uninstalled
    the game, I went back to the Microsoft store and there was no way for me to download it again. It looked like I had to buy it. It wasn't even in my Library anymore. I'm clueless.

    Thanks for the replies, I do appreciate it.

    :)

    Taptiles has not worked on my Envy HP system with windows 8.1 since May

    It has to due with update not removing original files for game and so it does recognize, but when removed then reinstalled from store then they work. Not uninstall and reinstall...that did not work for me

    Error code 104

    I have a microsoft game with a 104 error and can't play it. How do I get a new game ? The store won't let me get it because it shows I already own it.

    As far as I know, you can't access to microsoft store games folder.

    They are hidden files on Windows.

    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.
