    Xbox app games install stuck on preparing windows 11

    I have tried everything possible suggested on Microsoft forum and even 3rd party sites no solution for me still.

    I have tried powershell solutions as well as reinstall windows 11 itself and even reinstall xbox app and services.

    Tried resetting and repairing the said app and services.

    Windows 11 XBOX app games stuck at "Preparing (0%)" when installing

    Hello dear Gamer, first it's a pleasure to be able to help you today.

    My name is Vinicius.

    I am a gamer and independent advisor on the XBOX community platform.

    Hey Rechigo, how are you today? Hope you're well.

    I'm so sorry about this issue. Indeed, this bug is happening with the app on W10 and W11. There are a couple of things we could try.

    So, let's try this, first, make sure your windows and all its services are up to date:

    Open Settings, click Update and Security and then Windows Update;

    Click Check for Updates;

    Click the Download and Install Now option, if available;

    Also, check the Microsoft Store for any updates on the Xbox apps and its services.

    ______________________________________________________________

    Then try this:

    Go to windows settings > apps > search for gaming services app > click on it and select advanced options.

    After that, click repair and then restore, open the app and try again.

    Then do the same for the Xbox app:

    Go to windows settings > apps > search for Xbox app > click on it and select advanced options.

    After that, click repair and then restore, open the app and try again.

    ______________________________________________________________

    Then, try to uninstall and install the Xbox app. :)

    ______________________________________________________________

    If it still doesn't work you're going to uninstall the games services using a powershell command, then you're going to open the gamepass app, it will ask you to download and install the game services again :

    In the windows search bar type Powershell > Right click and select open as administrator > Type the command: "get-appxpackage Microsoft.GamingServices | remove-Appxpackage –allusers" > Wait for the process to finish and then restart the PC, then open your Xbox gamepass app, it will ask you to install the gaming services again, install it and try again.

    ______________________________________________________________

    If neither of those procedures works, try to restore your PC's OS via the ISO image tool, using that tool you will be able to maintain your installed games and files.

    In that case, Erbmur, I would advise you to report this to the xbox app team on the insiders hub app on your PC.

    Xbox windows app, installation stuck on "Preparing"

    Correct.

    I clicked install from the image below, let it do its thing. It restarted a couple of times. Rebooted just to make sure, and it still gets stuck on "Repairing".

    Are there any other suggestions you could offer before I have to clean install windows?
