I tried a lot of things so not sure what works or what doesn't.
However, I know for a fact that if you are currently on a non-admin account, when you launch the game, it will ask to launch on an admin account. The game will be launching via the admin account. Here's the current problem: if you were on your admin account, when you press any key on the title screen, a Xbox pop-up will open and confirm what account is about to be used.
If you are on a non-admin account, even if you launched the game with the admin credentials, that pop-up will never happen.
So right now I am "unblocked" but I am extremely annoyed since I want to avoid using the admin account as much as possible so currently looking for a workaround (namely why the pop-up is not happening).
