    Ever since Forza horizon 5 switched to the Xbox app for download and updates, it won't...


    It seems recently the game updated and it also switched to the Xbox Store somehow. Ever since then i can't start the download. when i tried a complete reinstall, it would also just show me an error message. this one would be 0x00000001 which apparently points to a fault in the windows update, of which there is none.

    I've been trying a few things up until now, which is essentially everything that has been reccomended in this kind of case which is:

    -Resetting, Repairing and even Reinstalling the Microsoft store app, Xbox app and Gaming services app

    -Restarting my pc

    -Taking ownership of a few files related to the WindowsStore but it doesn't seem to do anything.

    -Running the Troubleshoot sowtware for the WindowsStore, which didn't find anything.

    -Running WSreset, which doesnt work at all.

    -Going back to an older update that was suggested, Which my pc somehow doesn't support anymore even though i had it.

    I have a legitimate, verified copy of Win10Pro x64 and have not had such issues up to this point.

    I have more than enough space on my hard drives

    I essentially did everything. Atleast once.

    However the issues either simultaneously appeared near the newest update of the game, or at the same time.

    I do not own Gamepass or bought the game via gamepass. i bought it near release day at fixed price.

    I used to get an error that was something like 0x80070424, telling me the software doesn't exist.

    but now i only get 0x00000001 since i was forced to switch to the xbox app

    i also tried doing the "

    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers -Name Microsoft.WindowsStore | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml" -Verbose} "

    in PowerShell as administrator, which worked as itself, but did not fix the problem.

    WsReset.exe only displays a black window and never does anything, but uninstalling and reinstalling it manually should do the same thing, which i also did do.

    As a test i also tried downloading some other game just to test it, which downloaded just fine so the problem only consists with this very game.

    I suspect this has something to do with the forced transition to the Xbox app.

    I hope there is an easy solution to this that is not resetting my entire pc.

    if there is no solution, i will ask for a refund. Because paying 70 euro for a game i was able to play only 20 hours before getting permabanned by a store error is just not fair or anything i paid for.

    :)

    Ever since Forza horizon 5 switched to the Xbox app for download and updates, it won't download or update.

    I'm Samy an independent advisor. Welcome to the Xbox community. How are you?

    1. Open Powershell as admin
    2. Type the following command and press the Enter key:

    Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.XboxApp | Remove-AppxPackage

    Get-AppxPackage *windowsstore* | Remove-AppxPackage

    Remove-Item -Path "HKLM:\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\GamingServices" -recurse
    Remove-Item -Path "HKLM:\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\GamingServicesNet" -recurse

    4. Wait until the process is finished. It should only take a few seconds to run.
    5. Type exit and press the Enter key to exit PowerShell.

    Once done, RESTART your PC.

    To reinstall the Microsoft store :

    Press Windows key + X

    Click Windows PowerShell (Admin)

    At the command prompt, type the following then hit Enter:

    Get-AppXPackage *WindowsStore* -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

    And log-in back on both apps and check the game.

    Forza Horizon 5 is not able to download to an external drive.

    All of my Microsoft and Xbox games are downloaded on my external drive including the previous Horizon, which is Forza Horizon 4. I changed where new apps are stored when downloaded from the Microsoft store to my external drive but it still wont download Forza Horizon 5 to my external drive. On the Xbox app it wont show my external drive as an option to download to. I am able to download any game from the Microsoft store and Xbox app to my external drive except Forza Horizon 5.

    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!
