@axylotl Same here. If you uninstall and leave it for like 2 hours it will uninstall it *I think. Because doing so eventually makes the microsoft store button switch from play to install. Then you get to install it all over again (another 2 hours) and it may have doubled in size. No clear way to simply uninstall and it certainly isn't clean. When it ran, it ran OK; but the lobby lagged really bad, but fine doing missions outside of there. Now after clicking on the icon after like forever I get an error message from the .exe saying the requested operation requires elevation. I'm the only user and always been the Admin. So this game is basically holding like 80gbs maybe more hostage.
So basically after uninstalling and reinstalling it MAY launch again, but eventually the launcher will just not open no matter how many times you try or ways to open it.
Now a little after the same require elevation error you got, it has also thrown up a "This file cannot be accessed by the system" error. And all I did was play it for an hour and try to log back in. It lagged really bad in the lobby I was playing with graphics settings to see if that would help and I dunno that might have something to do with it. But really, crashing after rebooting changing the game's own settings from the menu? That, or the launcher is total garbage.
Too bad it doesn't run like it does in the Xbone X, but I have the feeling Microsoft is stricter when it comes to putting it on their console. This should have had a PC beta.
