Gaming services wont install/update error Code: 0x80073D26

I have happily been able to play games for a while and then there appears to have been a recent update to Gaming Services, which was failing to install with the error code Code: 0x80073D26. So I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but the same error code persists.
I have tried several reboots and ensuring that all other OS updates are applied.

Anyone have any suggestions on a fix?

Thanks

From information provided in this thread, try delete these 2 keys and reboot and then see if it helps:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\GamingServices]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\GamingServicesNet]

If not, then try follow Kevin's steps and see if they can fix it.

I solved it running as admin on PowerShell:


 get-appxpackage Microsoft.GamingServices | remove-AppxPackage –allusers

*to remove Gaming Services

 start ms-windows-store://pdp/?productid=9MWPM2CQNLHN

*to open Microsoft Store on Gaming Services app and install it

Hello! I don't know if you're still having this problem but if you went into Powershell already and that did not work, I may have a solution.

My problem was that the Gaming Services were installed partially and would not update.

To fix this I went to Registry Editior>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SOFTWARE>Microsoft>GamingServices

I deleted the folder then reinstalled Gaming Services through the Windows Store.
