  1. Windows Store download broken Forza Horizon 4


    I spent all of yesterday downloading Forza Horizon 4. I shut down the computer last night, trusting Windows Store's ability to resume the download.


    It hasn't.


    What I now have is the mostly downloaded 60+GB/70GB files stuck in a folder which your operating system won't let me access, taking up space, such that I can't even start from the beginning because I don't have enough space on the drive for a new install from scratch.


    Why has it done this and what does microsoft intend on doing to fix it?

    :)

    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.

  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.
