The launch of the Forza Motorsport 7 is approaching, and it works flawlessly on the Xbox One, but there are a few issues with the Windows 10 Store that affect the PC version.

The PC version of Forza Motorsport 7, which is 100GB thanks to its 4K capabilities, is struggling to unpack properly for many users, compared to the Xbox One version of the game that works well when you have to pre-download it. It clocks in at around 65GB.  Well, you should think twice before choosing the right moment to download the game.

Microsoft is working on a fix

On the Forza subreddit and the official Forza forums, there are a few threads where users are complaining about issues related to the game’s download. The problems may come from Windows 10 Store’s inability to handle larger file sizes. Microsoft claims that the problems stem from the intermittent internet connections.

Speaking of which, if your Internet disconnects frequently, check out this guide to fix the problem.

The company admitted that it’s aware of the “small” number of issues that players are experiencing while pre-downloading the game on their Windows 10 PCs and it keeps saying that the intermittent Internet connections cause the problems. Microsoft said that it knows how frustrating this might be for gamers and it also stated that it’s currently working to fix the issue.

More problems with the Windows 10 Store

The Store is suffering from more problems. For instance, smaller apps such as Mail & Calendar return an error message when you attempt a download. But these are quite small problems compared to the huge ones regarding Forza 7’s repeated download issues that keep obliterating people’s data caps.

Microsoft should focus more on improving the Windows 10 Store experience or else users might choose other game delivery services such as, Steam or EA’s Origin because these never seem to have such issues.
