    Installing Xbox PC games on a network share

    Hello, how are you? My name is Mateus. I'm an Independent Advisor and I'll be glad to help you today.

    First, welcome to the Xbox community. Unfortunately, I believe the app doesn't support this by limitation. The Xbox app is undergoing several improvements, we recently received the news that it will now be possible to install games downloaded from the Microsoft Store or Xbox app in any folder on our PC, as until then it was only possible to install in the WindowsApps folder which is an encrypted location.

    This information can be found at the link below.

    Since many improvements that the community was asking for are coming, I suggest that you report this suggestion to the Xbox team via the link below.

    *Thank you in advance for contacting the community, I hope this can help you.

    Installing Xbox PC games on a network share

    No such thing

    You have to install locally

    There is no sharing on pc

    Everything has to be registered on the registry and the xbox app
    Do you know why? Steam, GOG, and Origin all handle this fine. I presume it's a defect in the Xbox app?

    Cannot install game pass game

    Hi Anderdm11,

    Thanks for reaching out tonthe forums! Were sorry to hear about your install issues. If I may ask is the computer your currently trying to install the games on a shared computer? If the pc is shared Game Pass may be asking for persmissions from the admin of the PC.

    Not fully resetting.

    Great thanks. I still have a problem though. I have no drive in and the XBox 360 still shows my home media network share? Why? Also, I can't get through the home media network share to show in the network on PC?
