EasyAntiCheat does not uninstall when uninstalling game

For the Microsoft Store version of Darktide, the EasyAntiCheat service that is installed along with the game does not uninstall when uninstalling the game.

I did not have EasyAntiCheat installed on my system prior to installing Darktide, so it’s not failing to uninstall due to having a different game installed that requires it.

I’ve also not been able to manually uninstall EasyAntiCheat using the EasyAntiCheat_EOS_Setup.exe file in the Darktide install folder – I had to completely redownload the game again to attempt this. The EasyAntiCheat Setup executable just closes immediately after starting to run, and doesn’t present a menu to install/repair/uninstall like it’s supposed to.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Install the game on windows PC using the XBox store app
  2. Uninstall the game through the XBox store app
  3. EasyAntiCheat_EOS service remains installed
