    How to launch Forza Horizon 4 microsoft store app from a different instance of windows?


    Hi, I redownloaded windows 10 when I got a new ssd and have been running a dual boot of windows 10 one for work one for personal since. Both microsoft stores are signed in to the same account, just for clarity. I'm able to play all of my steam games no matter which account I'm on from redirecting the games folder to the old drive, but If I try to play Forza Horizon 4 FH4, it asks my to reinstall the game. As FH4 is quite a large game, I'm trying to find out how I can play it from both accounts while only having it downloaded once. Thank you for any assistance!

    :)

  2. 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.

    How to launch Forza Horizon 4 microsoft store app from a different instance of windows?

    Multiple Instances of Forza 4 Horizion running in TM

    You only have one instance for Forza running. Notice the indent of the 2nd. It shows what is actually running under the task name of Forza Horizon 4.

    Runtime Broker is a Windows process in Task Manager. It helps manage permissions for apps from Windows Store on your Windows 10.
