Fixes that will get you into Forza 7 and they were posted by the community at large.

I. Game Crashes at Logo Screen

1. Use Xbox app to start Forza 7 instead of icon on desktop

2. Undo all win10 privacy tweaks that you forgot about when you first installed win10. If you used:
O&O Shutup Win10
Spybot Anti-Beacon
etc.
You must undo all the stuff you disabled. There is no point in trying to tell you which features will block apps from communicating with MS Store as there are several that will on there own. Just undo all the changes and activate all features again then reboot your PC. If this fixes your problem you know that using such apps causes it.

3. While in Game press the window key and G to bring up the Game Bar (this feature must be enabled in order to work).
Disable Game Mode Icon (roll your mouse cursor over the icon to see if it's enabled or disabled). I've noticed that it was enabled and I don't recall ever turning it on.
To enable Game Bar Ribbon while in game do the following:
Settings > Gaming > Game Bar > Click on the box for "Show Game Bar when I play full screen games MS has verified"


4. (More Technical LAST RESORT) Create Permissions for Windows Apps and WpSystem folders. WUDownloadCache shouldn't have a permissions problem.

Ive read so many post where a complete Hard Drive wipe and reinstall of win10 fixed the issue then later borked again once those apps are used. What happens is that after using those apps Forza 7 works for a day or 2 then whenever communication to MS Store, etc are needed it hangs while loading.

There are potential other ideas that may work but the general censuses is that communicate to MS is contributing to the problem. Start there if none of the above doesn't work. For example are you using a 3rd party Firewall preventing Forza7 from communicating on the internet, etc.


4. To fix some stuttering/crashing at menus and in game you will need to increase the pagefile. Specially if you have a SSD. Examine the links below on how:

5. Game Crashes 1 second of clicking on the Forza 7 icon
Go to MS Store and download a small app. You shouldn't need to finish the download. You can stop it as soon as you know you are downloading the app. They try Forza 7 again.

6. To fix lock frame rate even though you've unlocked it in settings
-Reset all win10 anti spy settings from Off back to On.


7. Fix for "gray cars" that loss their livery/graphic design
...work in progress...

Update
Check to see if you have Game Mode Enabled for Forza 7. If so disable it to see if things change for the better. Then when you are ready to exit the game go to MS Store. Click on the three dots (...).
Go to Download and Updates. Click on the blue box that reads Get Updates. Game mode gets update all the time. So why wait?

Update

I cannot empathize enough to disable or undo all window 10 anti spy tools/apps. In particular those involving around disabling telemetry. When you were original told to disable it for windows 10. Disabling windows 10 telemetry will hamper with xbox thus hamper with this game causing CTD. The temp fix is to download an app from MS Store in order to get the game to work. The only permanent fix is reset all win10 anti spy settings for telemetry from OFF back to ON then rebooting the PC. This will fix this particular problem without the need of having to download something from MS Store.

Please keep in mind there are other features in those win10 antispy app that hampers the use of Forza 7. So, telemetry alone may not solve ctd problem. Which is why I suggest you reset all settings from OFF back to ON. Those that concentrate on APPS/Privacy/Security to name a few. Any settings you change require a reboot when completed.

it seems is ok for me when I launch FM7 via xbox app instead of icon on desktop ;) (no more message :"the game is not available for your account" blabla.... and no need to delete/reinstall a DLC to be able to launch the game again without the error)

But I have still CTD especially when u choose a car in multiplayer :/
(I Have 16 Gb RAm and I tried 16 Gb pagefile Size and it s the same , so it s not related to pagefile size)
I think we need a patch for the game now....

Go to: Settiings > Gaming
Do you have Game Bar on? What about enabling "Show game bar when I play in full screen games MS has verified"?
Do you have Game DVR Disabled?
Are you broadcasting?
Is true play enabled or disabled? <---not alot is known about this at this time. However, this is MS's version of an anticheating app built into the kernel of win10.

Last but not least click on Xbox Networking. Let it do it's thing. What is your:
Xbox Live Services: Connected or Disconnected
Latency: ms
Packet Loss: %
Nat Type: Strict, Moderate, Open
Sever Connectivity: Connected or Disconnected
