  1. Forza 4 not working after reinstalling Windows 10.


    Hi! Friend of mine's son bought Forza 4 through Microsoft store, using a gift card he purchased but had to create a new Microsoft account to do it. Unfortunately Windows 10 somehow got severely corrupted and had to be be reinstalled. Forza 4 is installed on a separate drive to the o/s but won't work. Seems to be permission problem. He still has the original gift card with code he used but can't get back to Microsoft store because he has forgotten his password. Tried to reset password but Microsoft says that there isn't enough supplied nformation to do it. Is there a way to get game going or somehow re-download game? Thanks. Les Hawkett.

    :)

    2. Click on Apps > Apps & features.

    3. Click on Forza Horizon 4.

  3. Problem with Forza Horizon 4

    Hi Hope

    My name is Andre Da Costa; an Independent Consultant, Windows Insider MVP and Windows & Devices for IT MVP. I'm here to help you with your problem.

    Have you tried lowering your screen resolution to see if the game launches?

    How much free space do you have on the drive?

    Could you confirm if this also happens in the default Administrator account?

    Open Start

    Type: cmd

    Right click CMD

    Click Run as administrator

    At the command prompt, type:

    net user administrator/active:yes

    Hit Enter

    Close command prompt, restart, then try signing into the Administrator account.

    Do you have the latest cumulative updates for Windows 10 1803 installed?

    Open Start > Settings > Apps > Apps & features

    Scroll down to Forza Horizon 4

    Select it

    Click Advanced options

    Click Reset

    Restart

    Check the Store for updates

    If that does not work...

    download the following utility and use it to remove Forza Horizon 4, extract it, launch it, scroll through the list, select Forza 4 then click Remove.

    Forza 4 not working after reinstalling Windows 10.

    Backup of Forza Horizon 4

    Hello to all here,

    i want to backup my Forza Horizon 4 which is installed to c:\programfiles\WindowsApps. I used the build in backup functionality of Windows 10 to back it up. If i now will make a fresh Windows 10 installation and then restore my backup back to c:\programfiles\WindowsApps will Forza Horizon 4 be recognized as installed on my new system? What happens if this fails? If it fails i have no possibilty to delete the 70gb of the restauration because i have no access to the WindowsApps Folder which means i have to reinstall Windows 10 again.

    Did somebody already tried to backup and restore Windows 10 Apps successfully?

    Greetings
