Well i got the same problem to. Yesterday night i play it and it doesn’t goes anything wrong. But this morning i want to play it again i have a note when i want to start up the app it says:
“Forza Horizon 4 is currently not available in your account. Here’s the error code, in case you need it: 0x803F8001”
Are you kidding Microsoft ? Come on you’re one of the biggest company on the entire planet
Having the same issue. I think there are server issues and that message is a catch-all error message.
I’ve run through most of the proposed workarounds (short of a reinstall) and I’m probably just going to give up and try again tomorrow. At the very least I recommend sending feedback saying that this isn’t acceptable behavior, especially considering that googling that error message returns results that are 2+ years old and 4-6 different ‘fixes’.
I bet, this is beacause new DLC. I preinstalled it few days ago, and today I got the same error. I also tried to uninstall the Fortune Island DLC and now i cant even install it back, same error, what occurs when I launch the FH4 application.
I was playing the game when suddenly it crashed and the next time i opened it it said this Forza Horizon 4 is currently not available in your account. Here’s the error code, in case you need it: 0x803F8001. I would like it to be fixed before the fortune island update. thx in advance.
I have a similar issue myself. I bought the game less than a week ago, and it ran fine on the afternoon of December 11, 2018. But later that evening, when I tried running the game, I got an error message that said, “Forza Horizon 4 is currently not available in your account. Here’s the error code, in case you need it: 0x803F8001.”
So I uninstalled the game and tried reinstalling it. There was a little Windows 10 popup saying “Couldn’t install. We’ll retry shortly.” I go over to the Downloads part of Microsoft Store, and there’s another error message that says “Something unexpected happened. Reporting this problem will help us understand it better. You can wait a bit and try again or restart your device. That may help. Code: 0x803F8001.”
And yes, I’ve tried the method of installing a random free app from the Microsoft Store and then trying to run Forza afterwards. No luck this time.
I really hope this will be resolved soon, because I didn’t spend $60 to not be able to play the game when I want to.
Side note: if somebody has found a working solution (other than completely resetting your PC, which I’m still not sure would work), PLEASE let everyone know.
I am new to the Forza experience with this game - Horizon 4.
I also have had problems with this game and I’m not even talking about support, who only ask what my problem is, and don’t even want to fix it.
Having paid 100€, this really is a huge disappointment, as I was expecting a more modern version of Test Drive Unlimited. Although the game in itself is very good!
Now, with the current problem “Code: 0x803F8001”, I’m wondering if this is a Forza or a Microsoft problem. I have tried installing an app, uninstalling an app, and a few other ideas that didn’t fix the game for me. Not having forgotten that today FH4 gets an update because of fortune island, my question is, is the update still going on or are players able to play, has anyone come up with a fix yet,…
For me: I can’t reinstall the game as it won’t uninstall properly, so for me that’s not a fix.
I too bought the game last night, downloaded it and it told me that my Game Pass was expired and to quit the game and restart it if it was in error. Contacted support, they told me it was a known issue, that it was being worked on and would take possibly 6 hours before it was fixed.
My friend and I are having the same issue… I’ve been playing for a week now and have 40 hours played, then all of a sudden, the error code came up tonight… right before the release.
I don’t see anyone saying anything on Twitter or anywhere else.
Glad it’s not just me and my friend having this issue.
Hope it gets resolved, and that there is some compensation for the issues…
I’m from Indonesia, and I also got this warning just now. I already tried downloading random app from the windows store and tried the command prompt via powershell trick I found from the Internet, no luck. My Internet speed is garbage, it took me 3 days of download for this game. I’m on Windows Insider slow ring program, there’s an update last night before I shut down my PC last night, I don’t know if it’s related.
Everything works beautifully, now this… Windows Store needs to die (and replaced with another MORE competent app store front).
Same problem here, I am getting the 0x803F8001 error code. Right now I am in the process of moving the game over to another drive (I’ve got two solid state drives and I want it on the bigger one anyways) so I will see if that does anything. I also have a pretty bad internet connection and would like to avoid completely reinstalling it. I’m hoping that the best case scenario is that it is something to do with the update, but I do doubt that is the cause. I hope this gets fixed quickly because I’m not going to be happy if my $80 is lost to the void.
I also have the same warning, wsreset, powershell command and installing another app don’t work.
I didn’t shut down my PC so it’s not it.
MS Store is awful, I had no problems with Steam, Origin, Uplay, Blizzard app, GoG (just one that it didn’t want me to log in) but MS Store is always a pain to use.
I guess this happens because of their DRM, and IMO bad DRM isn’t one that is cracked but when paying users have problems with it that pirates don’t (Assassin’s Creed 2 DRM for example).
