    (Error code: 0x80073cf9) Cannot install Forza Horizon 5 using Game Pass for PC (Windows 10)


    Hi,

    I was downloading the game just fine at first. However, when I closed the Xbox App and reopened it at a later time (after rebooting) the download wouldn't continue. Moreover, it was vanished from my download queue.

    I tried to restart the download by finding the game on Xbox App and clicking install. This time, it got stuck on "Preparing 0%" phase. When I tried to download it through the Microsoft Store App, it gave the error 0x80073cf9. Trying to download the game through "Xbox Game Pass" mobile app didn't work either.

    I tried almost everything apart from a clean install of Windows. Checking for Windows updates, troubleshooting Windows Apps, Repairing/Resetting the Xbox App, Gaming Services, Microsoft Store itself, SFC scan... But none of them worked.

    This is what happens now whenever I try to install the game through the Xbox App: "Forza Horizon 5 Standard Edition" gets stuck at "Preparing 0%", then vanishes after a minute or so. The other "Forza Horizon 5" says "Downloading" for two seconds then gives the error with the code I shared.

    A couple important notes:

    - I have no problem downloading other games. This only happens with "Forza Horizon 5".

    - I was trying to install the game on a non-Windows drive. When it failed the first time and vanished from my download queue, ~100GB from my hard drive was still allocated to it. So I went and forcefully deleted the "WindowsApps" folder crated on that drive.

    - There is currently 315GB free space on my HDD and 220GB on my SSD(Windows). I tried installing the game on both, but the outcome is the same.

    Anyways, thanks for your help.

    :)

    Hello there ! do you still have this issue? Forza Horizon 5 is one of the most anticipated games of the year, but the launch has not been without issues. If you are dealing with an install error where the section of Game Pass that should say “Downloading” is actually saying error, or pending, then we have some steps for you to try.

    The first is the most basic is to simply stop the download and then try again, and will hopefully resolve the issue for you. If not, it’s time for more detailed attempts to fix the issue.

    • Go to Start Menu, then Settings followed by Apps, and finally Microsoft Store/Xbox/Gaming Services
    • Click on the relevant app name from the options above
    • Advanced Options
    • Repair
    • If this does not work, try Reset
    Hopefully, the above will resolve the issue for you, but if not, you will need to try the more detailed steps below. These are direct from the Microsoft support page and will walk you through resolving the problem.

    • Select the Search icon on the taskbar, type powershell, right-click on Windows PowerShell, and then select Run as administrator.
    • In Windows PowerShell, type the following command and press Enter:get-appxpackage Microsoft.GamingServices | remove-AppxPackage -allusers
    • In the same window, type the following command and press Enter:start ms-windows-store://pdp/?productid=9MWPM2CQNLHN
    • Install the app on that page and select Yes when you receive the User Account Control (UAC) prompt.
    • Restart your device and try to install the game again

    Forza Horizon 3 Disappeared from library

    You're lucky!! I have the anniversary update, and my pc and drivers are fully up to date. I can't even start the download, well I can by going to the Store, and to "My Library", but it downloads to 30MB, then stops with error 0x80073CF9.

    No matter what I try I cannot install Forza Horizon 3 Ultimate Edition. I redeemed a code on my XB1, and it's all working there, however looking at my purchase history on the MS website, FH3 is not shown?

    Yet, in the Windows 10 Store, Forza Horizon 3 Ultimate Edition is shown as being owned by me, as is the Standard Edition (part of the bundle), yet I have no install option (just a message "only available as part of a bundle").

    I'm glad I have the game on the XB1, so was playing late last night, but I'd quite like the game to also work on my PC, for those times when the rest of my family are using the XB1 for something else.
