Hello everyone!

I don't know if this thread is still active, but I had the same issue and I recently found a fix that works for me.

In my case, I found a fix and it was very simple. Go to Sound Settings > [Select your main speaker] > Right Click Properties. And then change the Spatial Sound from "off" to "Windows Sonic for Headphones", and it finally works!

I hope this fix works for you guys, cheers!

Thanks TruSpeedster, i haven't seen anyone mentioning this workaround before. But at least in my case, changing spatial sound to "Windows sonic for headphones" unfortunately does not help. Maybe someone else has better luck.


Still waiting for a fix, or a miracle, …….. or both.

Hello Galford24, I am having some mixed results as well. Sometimes it opens and sometimes it doesn't. I guess in my case, it's definitely about the audio issue.

I have different speakers that I use as I use my wireless headphones sometimes. Changing them all to enable Windows sonic for headphones and switching around back and forth when trying to open the game works sometimes. Maybe give that a try

Good luck and hopefully you can play again soon, cheers!

I tried that too to no avail. That's my last message, I'm done with it. I wonder how many give up for that game whereas we paid for the ultimate. I believe I never felt so betrayed by a gaming company/gaming service.

LOL prepare to laugh.

Ok FH3, FM7 are working perfectly flawlessly on win 10.

FH4 after dozen of hours of tinkering, (more like fifty hours to be precise..)
I ve finally managed to make it WORK again !!!!
.... for few minutes.

What I did : after 10 or so reinstalls - I ve installed FH4 demo, and then immediately played FH4 by changing the size of the slpash screen.. and then... Turn 10 logo... Playground logo... I was in awe.
and right after closing few minutes later it started to crash on splash screen, my reaction was not anger or rage, but just a chuckle.

What kind of **** company Microsoft is .. I mean its unprecedented !
Im on PCs since 1990 I ve always felt that Ive possessed all my games, digital or boxed format, all of them worked for years, decades... we have plenty of workarounds to make old games working.
BUT HERE ? No for the first time in THIRTY YEARS I felt depossessed of my goods for some unknown reason.
I ve bought FH4 day one DLC 1+2 (without knowing that the second one will be some corporate joke since it was sold as a package of two on PC only) Car Pass, played for hundred hours and wanting more and one update later... POOF it dissapeared.
About 80 euros or so... for someting I cannot play at all ?

Who the hell are those guys ? It's obviousely a conflict between Microsoft store accounts and Xbox live accounts SORT IT OUT !

tldr; : don't bother fixing.

Anyone else getting the problem of their game not going past the initial loading screen after pressing A? It’s just an infinite load.

I know this isn't a practical fix but the only way so far i have found that fixes the Activation hang on start up of the game is to back personal files and format any drives that have anything to do with current windows install and ior micrsoft store games i.e OS on 1 drive, Program/games on another. Then reinstall windows (in my experiments i chose to reinstall windows onto a different drive than it was previously on) and Reinstalled the BASE Forza Horizon 4 only onto a different drive than it was previously on also, i appreciate for some this simply isn't an option but it is 1 way i managed to fix my game and i hope it helps others.

Hello friends,

I had the same issue with Hang Type: Activation. I just formatted my PC by clearing and formatting my two hard disks (One SSD which includes my operating system and one mechanical hard disk for games and other stuff), and miraculously it worked!

I really didn't know how this happened, so I just thought that when I format my PC, Windows creates a folder in "Users" with your computer name (usually it is your name with some of the letters missing if your name is too long), so I change that name with using a guide from a YouTube video. However, this time I did this operation before I start to install my programs. In other words, I changed my user name folder just after I installed Windows. That is one thing that I think that game fails to activate but I am not so sure about this. However, it's worth to try I think. (This thing is for the people if anyone does the same user name folder change operation).

The other thing that I find while searching throughout regedit. There is a field on:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Store\ContentId

which contains some ID that I did not understand. While I was looking at the Value Data field, I realised that they are really similar to the "Owner" of the game files in the "Security" tab in "Properties" when you right click to the game installation folder. Maybe that is the reason game crashes because game cannot find the "Owner" of the folder. Maybe it is worth checking the "Value Data" field and compare if the "Value Data" matches with the folder's "Owner".

I hope this works for someone, or everyone (I only can just hope it :'()

"unprecedented" Is definitely the right word. I've been gaming for decades, too, and have never seen anything even remotely as bad before. To think that a game would have this bad of an issue this late into the product life cycle is simply ridiculous. I can understand it being an issue during the initial launch, and maybe lasting for a day until the developers realize that about a third of their player base cannot use the product they paid good money for. But a game that has been out for a couple of years now and to be downright unplayable for so many months? Absolutely atrocious. I have lost all trust in the developers.

So again, the problem has gone away, after I have uninstalled the game and removed everything related to it, folders etc and install it on a different drive/partition, where the game was never installed before or I have nothing installed from Microsoft Store on this drive. I've just finished Gears 5, uninstalled it and installed the game on this driver and issue went away. Try to install the game on a drive where you do not have anything else installed from Microsoft Store, only this game and see if it works. Good luck and hopefully it will work from now on.

Keep in mind I had this issue on a partition where I had Forza Horizon 3 Ultimate Edition and Forza Horizon 4 Ultimate edition, and it was on a SSD which has 2 partitions, one for Windows and the other one, where I've had Forza 4, for games.

Forza Horizon 4 is installed on a SSD, and it is the only Microsoft-Store game currently on this SSD (and i de-installed an re-installed the game on this SSD before). It had been installed on both of my other harddrives before, so i don't have a drive where the game was never installed. The Game does not work. What am i supposed to do?

What's going on with FH4 lately ? There are so many threads about crash at startup, infinite synchronization or corrupt savegame that needs to restart everything from scratch.

What is so hard in 2020 to have a decent savegame/authentication system (with easy and secure backup/restore)? I don't even speak about the install process on W10 (remember the download that restart after 90GB, or the disk space not liberated after uninstal). I accept these kind of problems from an indie dev ... but not from a franchise with 11 games, with a developer tied to Microsoft, which is the operating system owner, and a leader in cloud storage ?!

We're not close to get a garage extension, this would probably corrupt millions of savegames :-(

I had the same issue with Hang Type: Activation, game is not launching, crashing on startup. I reinstalled the game, and I reinstalled the operating system 4 times!
I even did reinstalling the operating system with only installing new drivers and installing the game (I did not install any more software).
And it still crashes when you try to start, with this error (Hang Type : Activation).
I tried all tips to solve the problem without exception, reset the Microsoft store application, reset the game, but THIS DOES NOT HELP!
I can’t play the purchased game for 4 months already! Until March of this year EVERYTHING WORK! Now everything works for me except forza...
In Forza technical support, my ticket was closed with the status of “Solved” ... 18 days have passed since the ticket was closed, but nothing was “Solved”.
It's sad.

Well, I did have it working briefly after a reinstall at the start of Series 24. But then they forced the out-of-band update, and it would not start again after that was applied. I do have another machine that I use for telecommuting/remote desktop. The game does run on that machine but the play experience is not good because the machine has a workstation-class video card and not a gaming card. I am basically just doing the minimum to keep current on the exclusive cars at this point.

Ok prepare to be on SCI-FI world :

I ve managed to make FH4 working again, I seriously think you're not prepared on the slightest.
During the splash screen loading, game closes after 20 or 30 seconds.

MY METHOD :
Take the bottom right size of the window, in order to resize it... and wiggle your mouse (a circular movement) during the loading times dont ever stop the mouse and dont be ashamed to do that because as a desperate move it finally worked with that method, and BLACK MAGIC game opens, opening title and all..

I think it's due to a conflict on the resolution of the credits and copyright screens cos when it's working that screen is very very low res, something I didnt tried yet is to resize the splashscreen window to make it tiny in order to respect the small resolution.

edit : Tried more methods.
Launch game immediately take the right side of your splashscreen window, resize it horizontally by moving your mouse during the loading times left to right (takes +30 secs), game launches.

Doesnt work if : You move your mouse 10 or 15 seconds after loading splashscreen, havent tried 5 secs yet.

Another method, begin to record your desktop with shadowplay, do nothing game launches, I really dont get this, this is by far the most cryptic problem solving game I ve ever seen.
Since I didnt uninstalled shadowplay even if you close it, game doesnt launch then it may be one of the curlpits.
