How to Reinstall Xbox App Windows 10: Solutions for Download and Installation Errors

Are you having trouble installing or downloading the Xbox app on your Windows 10? The Xbox app is a useful companion app for Xbox video game consoles that provides access to the Xbox Live community, remote control, and second screen functionality with select games and applications. However, it can be frustrating when it fails to download or install. Fortunately, there are some solutions that can help you solve the problem in no time.

One solution is to reset the Xbox app package. To do this, right-click on the start button in the lower left corner and select Windows PowerShell as an admin from the list of options. In the PowerShell window, enter the following command and hit enter to execute:

Get-AppXPackage *Microsoft.XboxApp* | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)AppXManifest.xml”}

After the command executes, restart your PC and then launch the Xbox Console Companion app to check for improvements.

Another solution is to run the license service script. First, open Notepad and paste the following text into it:

PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Command “& {$manifest = (Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.XboxApp).InstallLocation + ‘AppxManifest.xml’ ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest}”

Save the file as “license.bat” and double-click it to execute the script from the command prompt. The script will uninstall the app, so you’ll need to go to the Microsoft Store and reacquire the Xbox app.

Lastly, you can try clearing the Microsoft Store cache by pressing the start button in the lower left corner and typing “run”. Select “Run” and type “wsreset.exe” in the run window. Once the reset process is complete, restart your PC and check if the Windows Store app works as intended.
