This is my first post and Im not sure if this is the correct area but I am having some issues. I have been away from FH4 for almost a year and it worked fine before I stopped playing it. However, now no matter what I do (resetting the cache of the xbox, uninstalling and reinstalling) it will not load the game. It gets to the opening screen and I hit A and then just spins forever. I have seen where there has been several issues like this but no matter what I have done nothing has worked. The only other thing I can think of is deleting the save data as well but I dont want to lose my progress. Any suggestions? Thanks for any help anyone can provide.

Hi all,

So i have played forza horizon 4 for many many hours with little to no problems but one day it just stopped working. When i launch the game it opens to the splash screen and then after 20-30 seconds it closes. I have tried absolutely everything to get it working again, including reinstalling the game around 4 times and resetting my PC.

Specs:
-1660ti
-Intel i7 950 @3.07Ghz
-16bg of DDR3 memory
-Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks for your help. Also if this isn't the right place please tell me where to go.

I got the same exact issue, i bought it and i couldnt start it for like 1 time.

[Mod Edit - profanity removed - review the Enforcement Guidelines on the Forza Support site - MM]

They said if you have Application Hang type error, you should wait because they working on it, but nothing, I dont think they really care about that...

LOL just scratched the surface, making a adminstrator local account, Forza not installed in account. this is such **** .

I really regret that I've lost my rant post ! this is beyond unacceptable !

Administrator Account

Log in to Windows 10 with a local Administrator Account. This fixes the majority of cases reported.

HOW ?! game is not even installed when we logged in another account ! WHY do we have to resort to black magic or some sort of mumbo-jumbo in order to PLAY our games WHEREAS IT WORKED FOR YEARS.. FORZA MOTORSPORT 7 INCLUDED

HOW !?!?

I had the Hang Type Activation crash happen to me as well. I played the game as part of Game Pass then bought the Ultimate edition to keep. After that the game never launched again always crashing with Hang Type Activation. I've been trying to get a refund but so far Microsoft won't refund me saying I've already played the game and they won't refund played games.

I also tried reinstalling Forza, resetting the settings, signing out and back in to the Microsoft Store and redownloading, and even reinstalling Windows, none of those worked for me either. I opened a support ticket with Forza but haven't heard back yet.

Have any of you messed with the privileges on the WindowsApps folder? One post I read suggested giving the user account full privileges of this folder might help, but it actually completely broke my system, with no Windows Apps working, including basic stuff like the Settings app.

So I backed everything up and did a full clean install of Windows.

First game I installed was Forza Horizon 4, and it now works (for the time being at least). I installed it on a separate M2 SSD (well worth buying one of these for games) which may have also helped.

It's not actually that much of a pain, just make sure you backup all your game saves - there are apps that will help you do this, like https://www.gamesave-manager.com/

It's not a bad idea to reinstall windows once in a while anyway imo, even if it is a bit of a hassle.

I know this is a rather extreme fix, and who knows how long it will work for, but for now I can finally play the game again. Also I have created a System Restore point called 'Forza Horizon 4 Working' so I can (hopefully) roll back if something breaks it again.

I'll be very careful about testing it every time I install anything so I can help figure out what breaks it in future.

Regardless, the game needs a patch as this is the only game I had issues with, and of course it originally stopped working for no reason at all, which lead me to mess with the WindowsApps folder in the first place.

The poster is asking about an Xbox problem. Why is everyone talking about their PC? Did anyone read the actual post?
