    Why is Forza Horizon 5 not launching from the Xbox app on Windows 11?


    I tried launching Forza Horizon 5 from the Xbox app, and when it opened it said it needed to update, and then froze. I closed it and tried re-launching it, and nothing happened, I tried restarting my pc and it still didn't work. Can someone help? I'm using Windows 11 and Game Pass Ultimate.

    :)

    Hello, first it's a pleasure to be able to help you today.

    My name is welcome to the community.

    Hello MattHitti, have you checked if you have the latest version of Windows installed, at 22H2.

    See which version of Windows 10 you have

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/see...

    Updates are often seen as optional.

    Also, make sure all Xbox Apps are up to date in the store, and make sure you have the Xbox Companion App installed, it works with the Xbox App.

    After this, try the procedures below.

    Using System File Checker in Windows

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/usi...

    chkdsk

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server...

    1 - Type cmd (Command Prompt) in the search bar of the Start menu and then click Run as administrator.

    2 - Enter chkdsk /f/x/r/v

    Being in use the system will ask if the user wants to check the chosen drive after reboot. Just type S and restart the computer.

    Forza Horizon 5 is not able to download to an external drive.

    All of my Microsoft and Xbox games are downloaded on my external drive including the previous Horizon, which is Forza Horizon 4. I changed where new apps are stored when downloaded from the Microsoft store to my external drive but it still wont download Forza Horizon 5 to my external drive. On the Xbox app it wont show my external drive as an option to download to. I am able to download any game from the Microsoft store and Xbox app to my external drive except Forza Horizon 5.
