    W10 Store - UWP Games cannot be updated if installed on non-system drive.


    Have had this issue for as long as I can remember, it is super frustrating.

    I keep my OS and all my applications on an SSD (CW10 Store - UWP Games cannot be updated if installed on non-system drive. :), and all of my games on a large Raid0 array (DW10 Store - UWP Games cannot be updated if installed on non-system drive. :).

    Whenever I install a w10 store game and select D:, the game will work just fine. But whenever there is an update I get a variety of error codes and end up having to re-install/download the entire game again.

    This is especially an issue for Gears5. Since you can only (AFAIK) install the HD texture pack from inside the game, I basically cannot get the HD texture pack installed if the game is on my D: drive at all, since it is downloaded like an update in the w10 store, which always fails if the game is on D:. Moving it from C: to D: after 'installing' the texture pack also loses it somehow. This is probably why all those people were getting their texture pack download stuck on launch.

    I'm not quite sure why windows10 gives you the option to install your store apps on other drives if the updates never work after the fact? This seems like a huge oversight.

    I thought it might be a permissions issue, but I now know better than to mess with the WindowsApps folder permissions on my machine.

    Problem with Forza Horizon 3 OS10

    Hi!

    Make sure you have correctly installed the updates available for W10 (including the Fall Creators Update). Also make sure you are logged in on W10 with the same user used on the console and open the windows store to download the game.

    can't install microsoft bingo after accidentally uninstalling it

    Hi!

    If you cannot download and install Microsoft Bingo from the W10 Store, then try to restore the app with the "wsreset.exe" command.

    Question about downloading updates to an external hard drive for a game on your INTERNAL hard drive.

    Basically, the updates are linked to the game. When the update is downloaded, it is stored with the game or in the game files, so therefor you cannot have the game update stored on a seperate drive to where the game is installed

    Remove all xbox apps from my windows 10

    Hi Rien

    Those pre-installed UWP apps in Windows 10 can be hard to remove . . .

    Click the link below to download a small scripted utility, that does not need to be installed. That will list all UWP apps on your system and allow you to uninstall them easily . . .

    kopiowanie gier na inny dysk

    Witaj Paprykarz11,

    Jeśli prosisz o gry z aplikacji Xbox Beta lub UWP z Microsoft Store, nie możesz mieć zainstalowanej tej samej gry w więcej niż jednym katalogu. Ponieważ gry są chronione za pomocą DRM, nie można ich przenosić, kopiując i wklejając.

    [Original message]

    Hello Paprykarz11,

    If you are asking for games from Xbox Beta App or UWP apps from the Microsoft Store, you cannot have the same game installed in more than one directory. And as the games are protected with DRM, you cannot move them by copy pasting either.
