  1. Xbox App on PC not launching (some) games


    I have the Xbox GamePass App on a Windows 10 PC. Some games don't launch. Specifically, Back 4 Blood and Evil Genius 2.

    I tried upgrading to Windows 11, and no game would launch. After phoning Xbox Support and Windows Support, the best advice they could offer was to roll back to Windows 10, which I have done.

    I keep Windows Updated, I update my video drivers, I have tried re-installing the games. I update the MS Store.

    When I phone the Xbox helpline, I am told that it is a Windows problem, so they pass me on to the Windows team. The Windows team say that my Windows installation works well except for the Xbox App (this is true), and therefore it isn't a windows problem.

    If this continues, I will unsubscribe from Xbox Ultimate, which I don't really want to do, but I can't be paying for a service that has these problems.

    Can anyone help?

    :)

    Xbox App on PC not launching (some) games

    Hi there Armando welcome to the community forum! Christopher here, an Xbox fan just like you and has been on Xbox for years already. I would really love to make your day by helping you out. I suggest you try these basic troubleshooting steps!

    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.

    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.
