Xbox PC Game Pass Crash Workaround

Modified on Tue, 12 Sep 2023 at 01:09 PM

Although this isn't the ideal solution for this issue, the community has managed to figure out a workaround which may allow you to continue playing the game without the frequent crashing:

  1. Open Windows Explorer and paste this into the directory: "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\505GAMESS.P.A.ControlPCGP_1.0.6.0_x64__tefn33qh9azfc\". You won't be able to navigate there yourself since Windows secures the WindowsApps folder. You may also need to change the drive letter and remove the Program Files part of the file path if not using the default settings.
  2. Right-click on Game_rmdutggamepass_f.exe and select Properties.
  3. From the Compatibility tab, check the box for Windows 7 compatibility mode and then click Apply. You may get an access denied message due to administrator rights, so if you do, click on Ignore.
  4. Run the game from your normal shortcut or from the Xbox app launcher.
