    Game pass app and windows store cannot install anything, error 0x80070057


    hi all,

    I cannot get anything from the xbox game pass app to install at all, or from the windows story. everything gives me a harddrive error, 0x80070057. i think its because i changed folder permissions and they didnt change back right, but i cant be sure what exactly
    it was i did. i think it was some variant of my WindowsApps folder, i have one on each drive.

    :)

    Error Code 0x80070057 & 0x80070005 when installing game

    Hi,

    The Xbox App isn't a stand alone downloading app like for example, Steam or GoG. The Xbox App is simply a portal to allow you to download Game Pass games. The downloading is actually completed via the Windows Store.

    Since Xbox App uses the Windows Store, error code 0x80070057 is actually a Windows 10 error code. There are many guides on the net to potentially fix this error, just google 'Windows error 0x80070057 like this
    one

    Note: You should not need to install any free applications on any of these sites.
    If you do, you do so at your own risk.

    Likewise, error code 0x80070005 is also a Windows 10 error often referred to as an 'access denied' error. If you get this error when trying to change where default applications are installed, it typically means there is already a folder on the drive from
    a previous PC or Windows installation.

    Did you take any of these drives from a previous PC or have you recently re-installed Windows 10 from scratch?

    All Windows 10 Applications install to a hidden folder called WindowsApps. On the C:\ drive, WindowsApps is located in a hidden folder in C:\Program Files.
    Do not attempt to modify this folder. On other drives the WindowsApps folder will be located in the Root directory. So on say F:\ drive it would be F:\WindowsApps.

    Do you already have a WindowsApps folder in your F:\ drive?

    Game Pass PC error code 0x80070057

    Hi,

    Pretty much all the error codes PC Game pass flags up are actually Windows errors. The Game Pass app is just an extension of the Windows Store - it doesn't even need to be running once a game is installed.

    I asked about storage, as error 0x80070057 relates to low storage. But clearly, this isn't the problem here.

    Can you give the advice
    I suggested on this forum post
    a try please?

    Xbox Game Pass for PC (beta) -- Any word on when Microsoft will fix this software?

    Hi,

    Not a lot of people know this, but unlike other stand-alone game apps on PC, the Beta App is actually an extension of sorts of the built in Windows Store. You don't even need the App running to launch your games.

    Because of the way the app works with the Windows Store, all error codes are actually Windows error codes, not PC Game Pass errors.

    If you get an error it usually means there is an issue with your Windows installation.

    Problems with xbox game pass pc beta (error 080070005)

    Hi,

    Sorry for the delay responding. Error Code 080070005 is an 'access denied' Windows error.

    Typically when this error occurs you can't install anything on to a particular drive, I've not heard of a download getting to 90% or 100% then failing with 080070005.

    I suspect the error may be down to administration privileges with the Windows user account you're using when downloading the games.

    I would try creating a new Windows account, remembering to give it Administration access. Log in on both the Windows Store and the Game Pass app with your account that has Game Pass and try installing a game again.
