    Xbox Game Pass for PC won't install


    I recently renewed my Game Pass subscription but the Game Pass for PC won't work for me, it said it wanted an update so I tried updating it and I kept getting an error, so I uninstall it and redownload it, and now I'm getting an error that says it wasn't
    able to install.

    How do I fix this?

    Xbox Game Pass for PC won't install

    I have had this issue (way back when I installed it for the first time). More recently, I run into something similar when I try to do a update.

    This is what works for me.

    • One thing, I would check is if you are able to install other apps from the App Store. Just to make sure that this is not an issue with the App Store itself.
    • Next, you may want to try and remove it from your PC (if you got Store, it should say install and not open), restart the PC and try again.
    • Lastly, I have noticed that sometimes, its nothing to do with your PC at all. Any number of times I have seen the Xbox app take hours to download and install an update. I keep reminding myself that it is a beta software, at the end of the day, and may not
      work as expected.
    • In those scenarios, I simply try again after a few hours or the next day, and it seems to fix itself.

    Windows 10 Minecraft Download Problem

    Since Minecraft is not a Play Anywhere title you would have to purchase the Windows 10 version in order to play it on the PC even though you own it for the Xbox. They are considered different. Same reason as to why it won't install through Game Pass since
    Games Pass is primarily for the console and only games that are also Play Anywhere titles can be downloaded and played on the PC through Game Pass.

    Why won't it let me install this?

    Games won't install with Xbox Game Pass for PC

    It doesn't work. It launched a command prompt, nothing happened, and it's still the same.

    Btw it seems this happens since the last Windows update, which broke my computer for an entire day already.
