Windows 10 version (Game Pass) won't launch

Recommended Posts

I've been trying to troubleshoot this since launch. Every time I try to launch The Outer Worlds, I get an error saying "The Configuration Registry is corrupt".


I don't get this error for any other Game Pass game. I've contacted Microsoft, had someone remote in and they are puzzled.


Things I've tried:

- Validated the registry

- uninstalled the game and reinstalled (three times)

- uninstalled and reinstalled Xbox (beta) app

- refreshed my PC with a clean version of Windows


Nothing seems to work.

It works fine on my PC so it is definitely something unique to your PC configuration. It might be related to specific hardware / driver. Maybe you should post your specs to see if anyone else has the same problems with your configuration.  

I remember having similar bizarre problems once with several games and it needed a CLEAN install of windows to solve, not a refresh, as the pesky trojan/virus was very stealthy and persistent.   Everything worked perfectly afterwards.  A nuclear option but will probably fix your issue.  Might be worth scanning your hardrive for errors as well it could be on the way out.
