    Install Forza Horizon 4 - error code FH601 (Windows media components is required)

    Hi Peyton,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    To have clarity on this issue and guide you accordingly, kindly help us with the following information.



    • Which build of Windows 10 is installed on the machine?

      (Search winver from the Start menu to know the same)


    According to the error code FH601, some
    Windows Media components are missing, and your version of Windows 10 is missing the necessary media .dlls to install Forza Horizon 4. Refer the article

    Error FH601 occurs when launching Forza Horizon
    to know more about the same.



    The media feature pack you’ve downloaded is for the Windows 10 1703 (15063) build. If you’re on a different Windows 10 build than 1703 (15063), I suggest you to download the media feature pack for the same and check if it works.



    Refer the article Media Feature Pack list for Windows N editions,
    to find out the media feature pack for your version of Windows.



    Let us know how it goes.

    Regards,
