Windows 10 Powershell Permission denied when registering an app


I own an external HDD on which I installed a game from the Windows App store. My laptop got reset at some point and now the Windows App store wont recognize that it is installed there. I have tried to Manually Register the package via an administrator Powershell prompt, but it just returns an error about permissions. Does anyone have any idea on how I could register this package?

The command I used:

Get-AppxPackage | % { Add-AppxPackage -c -Register "D:\WindowsApps\Microsoft.SeaofThieves_2.95.2035.2_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\AppxManifest.xml" -verbose }

The Result:

Are you sure you want to perform this action?
