    Xbox app redownloading games already installed on updates


    This has happened twice now, once with Back 4 Blood and the other with Forza horizon 5. The app says there is an update available, I click update, the app starts to download the entire game again. I usually play on steam, you click update, and it downloads just the update. Why the hell is it going to try to download a 101 gb game again? I don't have the data caps on my internet to willingly download an entire video game every time a game needs to update on the windows xbox app.

    :)

    Hello, My name is Jesse. I'm an Independent Advisor and a member of the Microsoft community and I'd love to assist you today.

    Forza Horizon 5 did that to me too earlier today, I took it that the game needed to be reinstalled alongside the update to remove all the bugs which has plagued the game since launch. I apologise for the inconvenience.

    Who is preordering Halo 5?

    hmmm... the MCC has been mostly fixed for awhile now. I find that when they release an actual update to fix a problem in the game it helps if I delete the entire game and redownload it. that way the update is already installed in the game when I do that.

    I figured out that separate update uploaded separately to an already installed game causes problems. at least with the MCC it did

    Installation stopped appears every time I try to download minecraft

    Usually this is due to an update in the console that is interfering with the install. However, if you're unable to see an update then try doing a factory reset on the console. There's an option to keep installed games and apps so you won't need to redownload
    them and your saves are safe on the Cloud.

    Installation of Witcher 3 : Hearts of Stone DLC stops with code 0x87e0000f

    Install the game without updating until the game completes the installation, then install the update. It should help.
    Thanks for replying Jurgen, I already get the latest updates installed even after I fully reset my Xbox. Tried both the resets; one with keeping my games and apps and other without keeping them.

    Hello zu, thanks for the update! OK, so cache clear and redownload of profile didn't get it behaving. Can you please try installing the game to your hard drive, or if it's already there, try deleting it and re-installing?
