Daily GameInput Reconfiguration

For the last couple of months at least, there’s been the same entry in my Reliability Monitor, every single day: “Microsoft GameInput | Successful application reconfiguration.”

The description says, “Windows Installer reconfigured the product. Product Name: Microsoft GameInput. Product Version: 10.1.22621.1011. Product Language: 1033. Manufacturer: Microsoft Corporation. Reconfiguration success or error status: 0.”

I've uninstalled GameInput via Programs & Features, but the next day it returns, as does the Reliability Monitor entry. I've also looked online and found no helpful clues.

Trying to understand why it’s happening every day, and what can be done about it since it clearly isn’t right.

The computer is otherwise entirely reliable, and there are no other symptoms or odd behaviors.

Thanks very much. I’d be grateful for any help/advice.

I’m running Win 11, version 21H2 (OS Build 22000.778)

FYI - I haven't solved this issue yet.

glasskuter was good enough to post this link, which might be related, but it didn't accurately describe my situation, and I couldn't take some of the steps in that post.

Some additional information: I'm on Windows 11, while my son and wife are on Win 10. My son's gaming computer has the identical issue, while my wife's does not (she's on a generic laptop). Not surprising since it's a game component or software issue.

Since I haven't noticed any other issues, I'm not going to worry about it but will occasionally check around for a solution.

Additionally I had done some reading but still not understanding what is happening.. however here is some info I have come over:

Here is a link to Microsoft Documentation of GameInput GameInput introduction - Microsoft Game Development Kit - that might give some info, however I cant find anything there

I have seen multiple posts about the reconfiguration crashing or freezing the pc but that does not seem to be our case since our PCs are working fine, also in my case it usually happens right after restart and not when using the PC...

I have found the events in Event viewer but it don't seem to give much more info. Also searched through the Task scheduler to see if I can find anything there with no success.

I can find Microsoft GameInput in control panel add/remove programs, tried to repair with no success, and do not want to try to uninstall.

I tried accessing mircosoftApps and looking for the files mentioned in
with no success or further understanding

Yes my PC runs fine and is stable, this only happens after a restart.

I don't seem to have "apps and features," but I have this in Installed apps. I've uninstalled it several times in the past, but it always reappears after a restart.

It's not like MS doesn't know about it. I found literally thousands of complaints going back to 2020.. It is all part of Microsoft's "Gaming Services". Be glad you are getting only a mention in reliability monitor as many report freezes, restarts, and even BSOD relating to this. (From what I can tell, these more critical reports are from gamers whose game depends on GameInput to run.)

I don't have an answer how to get rid of it permanently as I can't find one nor can I tell you for certain why I am not getting the same results you are.

Whether it has anything to do with it at all or not, I can say I have no third party games installed, no Xbox controller, and don't run MS game apps. In my services, Xbox Access Management Manager is set as manual-trigger start, Xbox Livegamesave as Manual-Trigger start, and Xbox Networking set as Manual start.

I do still have the Xbox app installed. When I look in task Manager under Xbox I see 3 processes running-runtime broker, xbox game bar full trust com server and xbox game bar. An additional process running is Service Host Xbox Live Auth Mgr.

Yep, I know as an answer to your question this info is about as useless as teats on a boar hog.

You seem to be saying I shouldn't worry about it, and if that's correct, I think that is useful advice and much appreciated.

It's a weird Windows quirk but unless it causes crashes I won't worry about it either.

Hey all

I'm one of the unlucky ones who's been having gameinput reboot their Windows 11 computer around once daily for about 6 weeks - and mostly during desktop tasks and videocalls rather than gaming. I do believe the issues started when downloading a game via the Xbox app, although uninstalling the app and associated services via the console has made no difference.

I've tried pretty much every suggestion out there (everything is up to date, all hardware inc memory tested) but to no avail, and the MVPs on the Microsoft forums are about as useful as a chocolate teapot, simply listing time consuming non-fixes time after time.

You guys seem like pros... any help appreciated. Anything.... Please (am currently at end of tether)!! Am happy to be the Guinea pig for any of your solutions!

Hello, I am having the same issue. I managed to fix it by renaming the 3 or 6 folders in C:\Program Files\WindowsApps named Microsoft.GamingServices_xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx. If you can't see the WindowsApps folder it is because its hidden. Anw I also found that fixing my crashes I can't play Forza Horizon 5, so if you have games in Xbox Account that you play just test them to see if they run. Now for my situation I am waiting for the official update of Windows 11 22H2 because I am currently running the Beta Version. If you found any other solutions please let me know because it is SOOOO annoying to randomly crash every day.
