    Game Pass Administrator Approval required for Installation


    I am unable to install any game from Game Pas that requires Administrator Approval for Installation. This was working fine until the last Windows 10 update and now I cant install anything. Does anyone know a way to get this working? My sign in account
    is an Administrator account.

    :)

    GamePass PC : Error 0x80070020 when trying re-install game

    Many people have the problem where they cannot install any game that "requires administrator approval". I dont know if they consider this a bug or a feature in the Xbox (Beta) app.

    When the xbox app goes to install a game, something prevents the standard administrator approval window from popping up to alllow the user to approve the install. After about 60 seconds, the installer times out and reports an error, as seen in the image
    posted by Fredric. If a game does not require the admin approval window popup, the installation succeeds.

    Game Pass for PC - Administrator Approval Required for Installation?

    Hi there Ryan,

    Thanks for reaching out here in Xbox Forums. I understand there is an issue with installing a game from Game Pass for PC. I recommend to check out the following article: Windows
    10 Xbox (Beta) App FAQ

    • Q: Why do some games require administrator privileges while others don’t?
    A: Some games require additional components to be installed for the game to function properly. Depending on the components being installed, we may require permission from an administrator via a prompt at game installation
    time or the first time the game is launched. See Create
    a local user or administrator account in Windows 10
    for more information.

    Xbox (beta) Administrator approval required for installation.

    Can't install any games that have "Administrator approval required for installation" on the download page. How do I change this ?
    I'm getting exactly the same here. Errors on everything, Fez, Hollow Knight, etc. But games that do not require administrator approval work without fail. I'm unable to remove the KB mentioned, and have tried resetting the Windows Store, reloading the Xbox
    (Beta) app, and clearing caches. It makes no difference.

    There's something very broken here.
