Forza Horizon 3 FH501 gtx 1070?

Hi

I just got a new computer and I've just installed Forza Horizon 3. When I launch, however, it says that my gpu can not support dx12. I have a gtx 1070, DirectX 12 and all drivers are up to date. Can someone help me and walk me through the problem? Windows store even gives me a green checkmark showing that I have dx12 installed! :( 

Specs:

Windows 10 Home

GTX 1070

16 GB ddr4 ram

i7 8700k

850w w/ liquid cooling

Please help!

Looking at the image I see it's not even a 'proper' DX12 game as it only requires Feature Level 11 (AKA low level DX12 for some reason),

which is why it will allow the GTX700 series to run the game (DX11 card with low level DX12 capabilities).

I assume you have tried both the, Ignore and continue and more information  options ? What happens ? A new error or close to desktop ?

- If you have not already, run the  -  DirectX Web Installer  -  to verify all DirectX files are installed.

- I don't use the Windows Store, so I don't know how the client software works, but if you are launching the game from a desktop

shortcut, try launching from the games title in the client software (such as the Steam Library) to verify if the desktop shortcut is the probelem.

Or, try launching directly from the games executable file in the games install folder. If that works make a new desktop shortcut.

- Also try 'repairing' the game (as with Steams - Verify integrity of game files tool ). Last resort. Reinstall the game.

- I wonder if the game is picking up on your cpu's Intel integrated graphics as the primary gpu ?

It is a DX12 gpu but because it has no VRAM, if the game thinks it is using the 630 it could toss out this DX error because

of the VRAM issue ?

Try disabling your Intel graphics in Device Manager to verify.

- BIOS updates sometimes fix this type of gpu issue too.

- Windows Store and Forza seem to have a fair few bugs, and there are many threads regarding issues with both. 

If you have not already you may want to type Forza Horizon 3 into  the search bar at the top of these forums, and do an

internet search for dedicated Forza forums.

This may be a known bug. If so I expect there is a fix that can be applied. Maybe something as simple as making a change

in one of the games configuration files.

Okay I will have to see if these work. From the other person that helped me said to uninstall the windows store and in the process managed to uninstall Forza horizon 3. I will see throughout the day or tomorrow if these methods work. Thanks in advance!
