Not me, but a friend I’ve been trying to get into horizon
So, basically he purchased Horizon 4 Ultimate Edition via Microsoft Store, downloaded and couldn’t even start the game - crashed after the launch screen. And every time it’s the same error in Even Log - HANG TYPE : Activation
So, we did a clean W10 1909 install and IT LAUNCHED. For two evenings. In the morning of 3rd day he tried to launch it - and the same crash with the same error. NOTHING was changed, the pc was left on overnight with nothing running.
Checking the events through the night - some apps were reconfigured, mainly Cisco and chrome, and MS Get Help (store app) was installed. Rolling those back changed nothing.
Also, while checking outgoing network traffic, it is the same as mine. (I also Have Horizon 4 Ultimate, Win 10 PC )
Also, I checked Event Logs concerning to Microsoft Store Operations, where it can be seen that winstoreauth.cpp asks for a license check, and it goes through. Only errors are for car pass cars, which say that licenses do not match. The same entries are present on my system, but again - everything works.
Every fix on the web has been tried (wsreset, registering forza again, redownloading all MS Store default apps and xbox services, changing Ownership - the works), but nothing has even changed the error code.
Reinstalling Windows again, sadly, is not an option.
Thank you for any help, you can give.
