(right board?) Microsoft store game unavailable, how to link to Steam?

I no longer have the Microsoft store version of PSO2, uninstalled that a long time ago. However, I hear you need it to link your non-steam account to steam... is there a way to work around this? I can't download the game off the Microsoft Store page (assuming they removed the download) and I'm pretty bummed at losing any progress/items I had from back then. I do have the latest W10 update and all that. I downloaded the Steam version and opened the game just fine, and I didn't click "no" when asked to link so the only issues is retrieving the code...

there are a few ways to do that, if you have an access to a Xbox One or Series X you can download there and get the code to link account, if not then use Arks Layers Tweaker that allows to use the same installation for more than 1 platform to get the code now if you don't want to use the Tweaker than you gonna need to download another installation from Microsoft Store.
