Xbox game pass Win10 won't run in PC Posted April 13 More info on this: I uninstalled the entire game and all the expansions then reinstalled just vanilla Ark and it also crashes at the splash screen. Interestingly it installed in about 30 sec which tells me that it doesn't fully uninstall. There must be a ton of stuff that it left in place so that the install re-used a bunch of data. With the short install I wasn't surprised that it still didn't work. I then took a laptop we have in the house and installed the game there. The server ran just fine. We went through each expansion and checked that the server would still run and got through everything and it works. My gaming machine still can't run it so I still need to get that sorted out, but it does work with a clean install on another computer. So at this point I guess what I need to figure out is how to completely blow away the game on my machine so that it really does install it from scratch.
