Get an app to open this 'ms-gamingoverlay' link error

Whenever I loaded OpenTTD on a locked-down machine it raised the error 

"Get an app to open this 'ms-gamingoverlay' link"

This was because Windows had detected a game had been loaded and started to invoke XBox Game features - such as the Game Bar and the ability to record video. However the PC was locked down through policy and these features were unavailable. Clicking on the "Browse Microsoft Store" link wouldn't work because the Windows Store was removed by policy.

This article helped.

Creating the DWORD registry key


and setting the value to 0 fixed it.
