Hi,

When I open the Xbox (beta) app from Windows Store or the xbox companion app from Windows Store it flashes up then closes itself. I just bought Forza Horizon 4 Ultimate and when I try to run it, it says I must be signed in. The thing is, because the xbox app isn't loading, I can't actually sign in.

I've done all kinds of things to fix it such as resetting the windows store, reinstalling/resetting the xbox apps. I ran sfc /scannow. I even downloaded the xbox app from their website and installed but it doesn't open, it closes itself a few seconds after launching.

Event Viewer says this:

Code:
Unable to start a DCOM Server: Microsoft.GamingApp_2006.2001.18.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe!Microsoft.Xbox.App as Unavailable/Unavailable. The error:
"2147942402"
Happened while starting this command:
"C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.GamingApp_2006.2001.18.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\XboxPcApp.exe" -ServerName:Microsoft.Xbox.App.AppXqq7rzt1gkb5kpcpszh37b7p6x61mdkks.mca

and

Code:

Happened while starting this command:
"C:\WINDOWS\system32\backgroundTaskHost.exe" -ServerName:Microsoft.XboxApp.AppXf74jmpwd42x7vxttda454sh29n0qpb8x.mca


When I boot up my PC I am presented with two errors:

and I seem to have multiple duplicate files for the same apps in the WindowsApps folder:

Also the calculator from the Windows Store now doesn't seem to be working (just like the xbox app, it will flash open then force close itself) Event viewer gives this error:
