The annoying Infinite Halo PC error code 0x80070424 plagues many gamers trying to install the latest Halo game using the Xbox app, likely because they are trying to play it with an Xbox Game Pass for PC subscription. The Halo Infinite error 0x80070424 only occurs when there is a problem with the Xbox app or Xbox game services on PC, causing installation issues. Is there a fix for Halo Infinite not installing on PC?

How to Fix Halo Infinite PC Error Code 0x80070424 on Xbox App

To fix Halo Infinite error 0x80070424 on PC and game not installing with Game Pass and Xbox app, players should:

  • Check if other games can install or recognize the install location, then try Halo Infinite again.
  • Go to Microsoft Store, then Library, then check for updates. “Game services” are important.
  • Find “Halo Infinite”, “Gaming Services”, and the “Xbox” app in “Apps & Features” in the Start menu, then select More options on each. Then choose End, Repair, then Reset for all apps.
  • Right-click on the Windows button and search for “Powershell”, then right-click on the game and choose “Run as administrator”. This will open a DOS box. Make sure all Xbox and Windows Store apps are properly closed in Task Manager, then paste “Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers| For each {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)AppXManifest.xml”}” without the quotes and enter. Let it run until it’s done.
  • If that doesn’t work, try “get-appxpackage Microsoft.GamingServices | remove-AppxPackage-allusers” in Powershell followed by “start ms-windows-store://pdp/?productid=9MWPM2CQNLHN” – these completely uninstall game services, then take the user to the Windows Store page. Click the blue Run or Install button. If it hangs, leave it for five minutes, then click ” downloads” in the top right, then Game Services.
  • Restart the PC and the Xbox app. If the error goes away but the install location shows as “unknown” and still won’t install, just go to any other game page on Game Pass and try installing it instead – the location should appear with them, then return to Halo Infinite and it should be available now.

Hopefully one of these fixes helps, although unfortunately they won’t work for everyone. Go here if the player is able to install Halo Infinite but the Xbox app won’t launch it.
