    Game Pass PC can't start games, shows Gaming Services instead.

    Yep tried it and it didn't work. And we should not be requiring an admin privilege though.

    Error 0x80070005 On xbox game pass

    This seems to be tied to UAC - if UAC is turned off, Store and the Xbox App seem to not be able to install games that require admin privileges.

    Why they would build it that way and force us to use UAC is beyond me, to be honest - but activating it and rebooting (UAC changes don't apply until reboot) fixed it for me.
