    Xbox Games for PC won't start when change their location


    Hi.

    I have two disks in my system (SSD and HDD). I've installed Xbox for PC (Beta) in SSD, but when I install games in the other disk (HDD), they won't start at all... sometimes they start, but crash in 1-2 seconds.

    Same games are working properly when they're installed in SSD disk.

    There are other games (Ape Out, Hollow Knight) that are working ok in HDD disk.

    Any idea? Thanks in advance.

    Diego

    :)

    Xbox Games for PC won't start when change their location

    Hi Diego,

    Thanks for the update on the issue. Why not try and install all on one or the other drive? The games may be having an issue as they are to launch through the beta app, but its on a different drive, which means start files are there also. Try moving all to
    the SSD or the HHD and see if it works then. As Microsoft has a default folder for the games to be installed also. So it most likely is a conflict.

    Thanks,

    Brad

    It might be that some games don't harmonies with the one type of disk.

    Mmmm... I don't understand. There are many people installing games in HDD disks with no problems.

    It seems like a wrong permission configuration from the app or something like that.

    Any idea? Thanks!

    Microsoft rewards keeps telling me to update my location

    hi i'm from Australia to with the same problem I notice the app done a update and the issues started after that. saying update location nothing worked except changing my location to usa then it worked only problem is u wore on the usa store points still
    counted towards my goals as I do it on the pc as well and it say's Australia my pc and points carried over so what I do I change my location to usa to do the challenges and then when i'm done change it back to oz hopefully they fix it soon it's annoying swapping
    and changing but it works just be careful when looking at prices of games/movies cause at first I was thinking why is this game so cheap when it's a new game that's when I relized I was looking at usa dollars lol. hope this helped anyone.
