Frequently asked questions (FAQ)
Why are some of my MicrosoftGame.config dependencies not installed in the developer sandbox?
The store is unable to install framework dependencies that are declared in MicrosoftGame.config while in a developer sandbox. These dependencies need to be manually installed on the PC for your title to work.
It's important to ensure that the versions you install are the same as the versions that are specified in MicrosoftGame.config.
For more information, see Framework package dependencies.
Why can't I see sandboxed store content after publishing: Error 194?
You need to be signed in to Xbox Live on the PC. If you've recently run
wsreset, you should sign out and sign in again.
Why can't I get the latest version of gaming services?
You might not be in the RETAIL sandbox. Switch to the RETAIL sandbox, run Windows Update, and then return to your development sandbox.
How can I uninstall a package that was installed by another user?
To remove a package for all the users on the PC, run the following command in an elevated PowerShell prompt:
Remove-AppXPackage -allusers <package_name>.
How can I report a problem?
After installing the Microsoft Game Development Kit (GDK), there's an Xbox item in the Visual Studio menu bar. To open a dialog box through which you can report a problem, select Xbox > Xbox Report-a-Problem.
Don't select Feedback icon > Report-a-Problem to report a problem.
Where should I save local game saves?
We recommend saving local game saves to the user's Documents folder: Documents\Saved Games<Developer Name><Game Name>.
Ensure that your code creates these folders if they don't exist. This ensures that gamers can discover their saved games and back them up if
XGameSave isn't used.
