Download error on PC

Hey everyone,

I bought forza 7 today and boy have I had a field day trying to install the piece of [Mod Edit - Abbreviated profanity, profanity and profanity that is disguised but still alludes to the words are not permitted - D].
I’ve talked to three microsoft tech support guys and they’re all too stupid to figure out the problem so I’m trying the forums.

Whenever I try to start the forza 7 download it either:

  1. Doesn’t start at all, gives an error, and spams the "something went wrong, we’ll try again’’ message a couple of times.
  2. Downloads for 5 mins. at normal speed to about 2gb and then gives the same error. (wiping all progress it made thusfar)
  3. Downloads at negligible speeds.

I’m at the end of my rope here. The microsoft store is the most godawful thing I’ve ever experienced and is EXTREMELY clunky and unintuitive.

I tried the fix with fiddler and IDM but to no avail. The store craps out when I have them active.

Any ideas are very welcome.
