  1. Cannot install Forza Horizon 5 on PC


    Hi all,

    I purchased Forza Horizon 5 on PC hours ago, and have yet to successfully install it. Through the Xbox app on windows 10, every time I attempt to install this, I am met with "error 0x00000001".

    Things I've tried:

    - Uninstalling and reinstalling gaming services using "get-appxpackage Microsoft.GamingServices | remove-AppxPackage -allusers" and "start ms-windows-store://pdp/?productid=9MWPM2CQNLHN"

    - Resetting the microsoft store, xbox app, gaming services, and app installer from windows settings

    - Updating windows and installing all optional updates: currently I am on Windows 10, version 21H2.

    This is very frustrating as I do not know what else to try. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    edit: forgot to mention that this thread https://support.xbox.com/en-US/help/errors/error-code-0x80073D26 specifies the installation of update KB5004476, but I do not see this update in my windows update center under available optional updates

    :)

    Incomplete download, after reboot cannot download nor can i free up space

    Hi, I'm lvnley and this is what helped me and got Forza to download!
    1. Go into the Microsoft Store and search Forza Horizon 5 Standard Edition.
    2. Next you want to click on Forza Horizon 5 Standard Edition and you want to click Install from the Xbox app.
    3. This will take you to the Xbox app and when it takes you to the Forza game scroll down and look at the tab named "Included in this bundle" And click Forza Horizon 5.
    4. This should take you to the regular Forza Horizon 5 game rather than the Standard Edition, And then you want to click install and this should download the game.

    Hope this helps have a good day!

    Hello, how are you? My name is Mateus. I'm an Independent Advisor and I'll be glad to help you today.

    First, welcome to the Xbox community and we're sorry you're having this issue. Usually, this is an issue that is related to the Gaming Services application, the issue can be resolved by fixing it, however, some users have reported that this is no longer working. Anyway, I suggest you try the solutions below, please.

    First make sure you are using the latest version of windows, to do this follow the instructions below.

    Select the Start button and then go to Settings > Update and Security > Windows Update.

    - If there are no updates to be made, please proceed with the solutions below.

    Solution 1:

    Open RegEdit as an administrator and delete the following Services:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\GamingServices]

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\GamingServicesNet]

    PC reboot

    Install gaming service like you would normally

    Solution 2:

    Go to Windows settings

    Applications

    Applications and Features

    Look for Gaming Services

    Click on it

    Advanced options

    Tap repair

    - If it doesn't work, try the alternative below.

    Download the Create Windows 10 installation media application from the link below, at the end of the download run the application, and then follow the instructions given by the program at the end click on upgrade. Rest assured none of your files will be lost, this is a system restore that will try to fix this error.

    I'm also having this issue, however it will not even ask for my storage device. Regular game downloads work and will prompt for which drive, but horizon just gives an error immediately. i suspected it's because it won't ask which drive, but now i'm not sure.

    Unfortunately, if none of these solutions worked then you will need to do a clean install of Windows as the Windows build tool is just a reinstallation and this issue is usually resolved by performing this solution.

    So as it doesn't, you should do a clean install of it, be it Windows 10 or 11.
