    How can this happen its literately a windows app you know owned and operated by the corporation the made the OS, steam doesn't have this problem. I don't have adequate internet to reinstall it. This is very disappointing. Maybe get it fixed before all your new games that are coming with the new Xbox arrive. Is there a way I can recover it, if not you've lost a very upset player.

    Partial download of Forza Horizon 4 will not delete.

    Hello there!

    I am having problems with uninstalling partially downloaded files from my computer.

    What Happened:

    • I was downloading Forza Horizon 4 from the XBOX beta app on my PC but then my house had a power-cut.
    • This turned my PC off and the download was stopped.
    • When my PC was turned back on, 45GB was taken up on my SSD.
    • The XBOX beta app and the Microsoft store app do not show that Forza Horizon 4 has been installed so I cannot click uninstall to remove the files.
    • I cannot find Forza Horizon 4 anywhere on my PC even through the Apps and Features menu.
    • After some digging I found "Microsoft.SunriseBaseGame" this was the Forza horizon 4 file.
    • I cannot delete this as it requires permission from "SYSTEM" to delete.
    • I am using my own PC that I have built.
    • I have tried to solve this issue by changing the security details in the property tab of the file.
    • However this still would not work.
    Is there any way I can uninstall these files?

    Thanks Windows Store deleted my Forza Horizon 4 after a reinstall of windows. :)

    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

    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.
