    change install location

    Hi there Paul welcome to the community forum! Christopher here, an Xbox fan just like you and has been on Xbox for years already. I would really love to make your day by helping you out. Unfortunately, tons of users are experiencing this problem, some have found a solution by reinstalling the Xbox app! I suggest uninstalling the app completely! Everytime that it tried to give me a hard time I do this and it works wonders! Here are the steps!

    why is the dlc not available to everyone yet?

    Finally got it :) UK.

    the way i got it was change my xbox one location to united states locate the DR3 DLC and then pin it. Changed location back to United Kingdom and clicked the pinned tile for DLC and pressed install

    Changing the Install location for gamepass games

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

    1. Open Windows Update and look for updates, update everything, including optional updates. Restart to apply updates and try again.

    2. Press Windows Key + i and go to apps, search for ''gaming services'' click ''advanced options'' and then ''terminate, repair and reset. Try installing the game again.

    3. Launch PowerShell as an administrator and enter

    “get-appxpackage Microsoft.GamingServices | remove-AppxPackage -allusers”

    Restart your PC, open PowerShell as admin again, and enter

    “start ms-windows-store://pdp/?productid=9MWPM2CQNLHN”

    The Microsoft Store will open and ask to install Gaming Services, install. Then try installing any game again.
