    Downloading Forza Horizon 4 stuck at "Starting Download"


    Hi all. I'm trying to download Horizon 4 via Game Pass from the Microsoft Store. If I download the "Forza Horizon 4 Standard Edition", it gets stuck at "Acquiring License" infinitely and the downloads list shows Horizon 4 as "Starting Download", and if I try just downloading the app just called "Forza Horizon 4", it stays stuck at "Starting Download".

    These are the things I've tried:

    In-Place Windows Upgrade to fix my install

    WSReset.exe

    Terminating and Resetting Microsoft Store app

    Re-registering Windows Store through Powershell

    sfc /scannow (No problems detected)

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth (No problems detected)

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth (No problems detected)

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth (No problems detected)

    Stopping Windows Update service

    Stopping wuauserv and BITS and clearing SoftwareDistribution

    Resetting network settings

    Running Tweaking.com’s Windows Repair tool

    Windows Store troubleshooter (No problems detected)

    Performing a Clean Boot

    Logging out of and into MS Account

    And yes, no updates are currently available for my PC.

    :)

    I'd suggest you to follow the below steps and check if it helps.

    1. Press Windows key + I together to open Settings.

    2. Click on Apps > Apps & features.

    3. Click on Forza Horizon 4.
