Cant link steam account to XBL account & more

OP Noahvicious

Main issue: Loading Halo MCC from steam I get to the home page where it wants me to connect my XBL account to my steam purchased MCC. However, I cannot click anything. Is there a fix?

Also here's a short and sweet version of the horror story I've been having with my favorite video game franchise.

I have been trying to play halo on my PC for a month now. Here's a link to my other support post that was never solved

When I contacted the halo team they essentially said, "sorry its not their problem and its a microsoft/ xbox beta/ windows store issue.". To which I interpreted as dodging the issue specifically happening with this game, and no others. But lets push that aside for now.

I can not download halo through the xbox beta app, or windows store. I simply keep getting the errors I explained in my last post. I've tried at least a dozen trouble shooting methods and I've even considered wiping my computer clean to start again. However that makes no sense since other games work just fine. Call me crazy but I believe this is a HALO specific issue.

I have now purchased Halo MCC on steam at full price because, I desperately want to experience Halo 2 on my fancy PC in all its glory. Only now I get to the home page where it says "lets get you signed in". Only I cant click anything. I tried mouse and keyboard and controller. I tried using them in alternate orders. Nothing. So I finally get the game installed I cannot even sign in now. Whats next?

All I'm looking for at this point is a fix to sign into steam. I give up with the windows store and the xbox beta app and to game pass. I waited until midnight to play halo 2 on pc, and now I've been wrestling with this game for the chance for over a month.

Someone please help me finish this fight.
Well, i'm not a Dev and i don't know the problem but make sure to have all the drivers up to date and verify the archives of the game on steam. Or then try to reinstall the game.

updating the driver helped me get signed in! hopefully it works once everythings updated. thanks for the suggestion!

Make sure to get everything up to date Spartan, don't be lazy (Like me) i was having problems on Halo 2 A and other games until i updated everthing. Graphics card, Motherboard, BIOS and i don't know if something more.
