    I wanted to give Forza Motorsports 7 a go on my PC before I buy it. I DL the demo from windows store. I launch the game, I get a forza 7 logo, and then a thinking circle on bottom right. then it quits. I have tried over 10 times, same thing. Game would not load? any tip on fixing this? if I were to buy this game would it work? I have issues with any other sims/games. I run daily, Iracing, PC2, Asseto Corsa Comp. Dirt Rally 2.

    @ApexMaster31 did you ever get this to work I'm having the very same problem, I've turned off all my antivirus etc and still it refuses to load :(
    Sometimes I get to the turn 10 logo other times I get to the thinking circle.

    No I turned it of, but surely a game made for windows 10 would not expect you to uninstall its own security as I'm using windows 10's own built in virus & threat security !!

    The game itself is a ton of fun if you can get passed the inability to adjust fov, or even your seat for that matter.
    The default view in cockpit is acceptable I guess.
    The biggest issue I have is after 30 minutes of play, you start getting these annoying stutters and frame drops.
    I had recently purchased an Xbox one X to run 4K in red dead, fired up Forza 7 and my god it's beautiful and silky smooth.
    So much for PC optimization but luckily the Fanatec CSL base I have works with xbox so I just run it there now.

    I assume you have EVGA precision running for FPS/CPU and GPU loads.

    Quit it running and it will work

    @thepharcyde I assume you mean me :) I had EVGA running but uninstalled it and still the game wont load.
    So I've give up on it.

    @ApexMaster31 I am in the same boat where the demo will not start, but I agree with the above sentiment. Don't buy. Its one thing to give you this much of a headache as a demo, but can you imagine buying it and it works one day, then the next you have to spend 40 mins just trying to get the game to start? I read these stories all the time.

    THAT BEING SAID, the more times I try to start this game, the more it CALLS me... Like a unicorn or other mythical creature. Just buy Wreckfest and smile all night.
