    Reinstalled windows, Now my pc game pass games all won't run,be detected , or start through...


    I just recently fully reinstalled windows and wiped my primary drive but left my other 3 drives alone and since then all my game pass games are fully there without a megabyte missing or out of place but won't run or be detected on the xbox app , windows store or even in system settings when i go to storage it comes up as ''Other'' but all the files are there i tried tons of troubleshooting and many restarts later and to nothing and only my game pass games are affected not steam,riot,epic games or even games that don't have any active retailer only game pass games and when i try to run them through admin or file explorer it won't do anything or comes up as ''Incompatible'' it is the same verison of windows same verison of win store and xbox app and im signed in to my account and it comes up as ''ulitimate'' so it detects my subscription so im puzzled why this is happening or why it not working

    Hello, YeBoiCallum. Thanks for reaching out! My name is Lucas. I'm an Independent Advisor and a Microsoft user just like you. I'll be happy to assist you today.

    Unfortunately, if you format your computer - specifically the partition that has Windows installed - you will need to install your games again. This is also true if you install a game on an external HD on a computer and try to play the game using the external HD on another computer - even if the Microsoft account used to sign in to the Xbox app is the same.

    There is nothing official about this, but I believe the game license is stored on the operational system partition or on the registry. So if you format your computer - or change computers - the game is not recognized as installed, even if it is installed on another partition/drive.

    I know this is not the answer you were expecting, but you will need to download and install your games again. I'm sorry about this.

    Feel free to ask back any questions.

    PC Xbox game pass - Football Manager 2020 won't run

    FM2020 won't run, every time I try to run the game it closes Xbox Game Pass and the game won't start up. My drivers are up to date, I have tried reinstalling the game, reinstalling the Xbox Game Pass, running the game in administrator. Nothing will work.

    Can someone please help with a fix?

    Thanks
    Same problem. No idea how to fix.

    Just restart your pc and try to run again fm2020, it usually works.

    Halo: Master Chief Connection

    I have done all this. I had to completely reinstall and configure my sound card and video card; because post gaming on halo: MCC yesterday glitches started happening without the program running. Have now uninstalled and wiped all evidence of Halo: MCC and
    Microsoft gaming software from my PC. Verified my Windows edition. Confirmed the reinstalled and configured sound and video drivers work with other apps. Am now reinstalling the MCC. If this doesn't work I will simple cancel my subscription to game pass.

    I have spent more time troubleshooting than playing.
